Re: Considering new Mac Mini

Re: Safe Finder, Safari problems

Stephen, You may have answered why I have the warning; I am using an old-old system. I use Snow Leopard, 10.6.8 and Safari version 5.1.10.

Re: iMac Early 2009

Is this still available? You mention all software has been updated. What types of software are included? For example, is Microsoft Office suite on it? If not, were you using some other software for documents/spreadsheets etc.

Re: Charging a Fitbit

The moderator says, "....an approved USB charger with a 5.0V @ 1.0A output, it will work ..". My iphone charger says it is 5V @ 1.0A output which confirms your 5W comment. If I remember correctly, Watts equals Volts multiplied by Amps which matches 5V x 1A = 5W. So, it looks like the iphone charger ...

I know, and have charged it by plugging it into the USB slot on my MacBook Pro. My question is: Can the Alta be charged (safely) by connecting the USB connecto...
