Re: Silence unknown callers

Fantastic feature I've wanted for, well, ever.

Generally, if I get a call that isn't recognized, I silence the ringer manually. But that's a hassle, especially in the car, where I have no way to silence the ringer.

I will definitely turn this feature on asap.

More bad news about fraudulent Flash Player installers: Dubbed "CrescentCore," the malware comes as it usually does —in the form of a DMG file pretending to be an Adobe Flash Player installer, Intego said. If someone launches its contents, the software will check to see if it's running inside a virt...

Re: iPhone and iPad Backup without iTunes!

Finally! That's been confusing for us as we still have an old iPod, which mounts as an external drive *and* uses iTunes.

Here's a doohickey I saw while searching for a special cable. It might come in handy in certain circumstances:

Jokes aside, if you're going to spring for more than $10,000 for a MacPro (or much, much more) and 32-inch 6K Monitor (which comes with a stand), it's only 10% more for the upgraded stand. Just as a comparison, here's one price for the kind of pickup I see around town all the time, driven as a perso...
