Apple TV 4 and Closed Captioning

I recently ran into a problem where my Apple TV 4 suddenly had the default for Closed Captioning switched to ON. But it gets worse. I couldn't turn it off. No matter what the preference said, any film with CC available showed the CC. It turns out there was a tvOS update available, so I installed tha...

Re: Apple reduces price on iPhone batteries

One possibility is that after telling you there were batteries available, and receiving your iPhone, the repair site didn't have any batteries. Rather than disappoint you, they sent a refurb. At least sometimes, refurbs get new glass and case. My iPhone 6 was in the earlier battery recall, and Apple...

Re: Goodbye To 32-bit Applications

It's sometimes a pain to find a replacement for an app that's no longer being updated. But sometimes it works out for the best. Case in point the painful transition I made from QuicKeys to Keyboard Maestro. Now that I'm adjusted to the change, I use KM extensively.

Re: Importing CD's to macOS High Sierra iMac 10.13.3/Desk Top

I think I posted on this before, but can't find the topic. Our 2010 27" iMac had a bad internal disk player. I did a lot of searching and couldn't find a replacement.
