Re: Apple Update Server

ChrisO, of MacTraders, Thanks for this tip. I sure wish Apple would set up a comprehensive download/streaming system that would feature easy resume for stalled downloads, a centralized system for scheduling for all downloads and a system of prioritizing with automatic pause whenever a download seems...

Re: Hughesnet

This is slightly off topic, but I've been a Verizon customer for a very long time and have always found their support staff to be top notch.

AirPort Firmware Update

Apple updates AirPort firmware with KRACK vulnerability fix

Re: Combine several commands=macro - how?

As in this thread, I've suggested Keyboard Maestro for some time. Thought it has scripting capability and can hook into more powerful scripting applications, I mostly use it for simple macros. I've always found it easier to use than Automator. Thought I have several macros that combine several steps...

Re: Apple Update Server

That's an idea. At least I can get iTunes separately from High Sierra 10.13.2. FWIW, I just restarted my wife's iMac after it finally finished the download in App Store.

So I think her iMac was using up much of the bandwidth, causing my iMac to lose the connection. I still don't know why App Sto...

Amazon Prime Video

Amazon Prime Video has come to Apple TV as an app. I found the setup very easy: you can choose to display a short code on screen (I took a photo with my iPhone) then log in to your Amazon account on your Mac and type the code in. The app shows a Watchlist, much the same as Netflix or Filmstruck, and...
