4G?

My husband has a first generation iPad with AT&T service which has always worked well for him. If I get him the new iPad retina display with AT&T 4G, will the 4G work here? What else do I need to know about 4G service before I make this decision?

Re: Google Plus "Hangouts"

Hey, hey! I tried it with Firefox, and it worked fine. So why doesn't it work with Safari? Maybe my version of Safari is just too old? (It's 5.0.6)

Re: Google Plus "Hangouts"

Thanks for the suggestion. I've already got Firefox, but never thought of trying it for this situation. Will do. Stay tuned.

Re: Google Plus "Hangouts"

I'm back at Sys 10.5.8 so I can't use Chrome, but shouldn't have to to use Google+. That also precludes us from using FaceTime. My camera and mike are working fine because my friend can see and hear me, even though I can't see anything. Audio works fine both ways. What am I missing here?

Google Plus "Hangouts"

I've just started using Google+ to have a video chat with a friend using our gmail accounts. This is called a "hangout" in Google+ language. My friend can see and hear me, but I see nothing on my screen. I see a white screen on top, where my friend's live picture should be. Down below, all I see is ...

Re: Dead Laptop??

From my experience in Lynwood, I don't think you could get to the Genius Bar without an appointment. By the night before you would drive over, all of the appointments are likely to be filled. The Tacoma location might be a good option. Never thought of it.

Re: Dead Laptop??

I thought that $310 was a great deal. And Stephen is right. They do whatever is necessary, no matter how many parts it takes or how much labor is required. They test out everything and send back your computer in "like new" condition. They even fixed the front latch which had stopped "latching" some ...

Re: Dead Laptop??

When all else failed, I took the laptop to the Apple Store at Alderwood Mall. AppleCare Service replaced the Logic Board, the Optical drive and cable, the battery and the bracket. The total of their flat rate repair charge, including labor was $310. Everything is back in working order, and I'm a hap...

Re: Dead Laptop??

The power supply is fine. The power plug lights up normally. The MacBook Pro shows its sleep/awake light on the front edge (light is on, and turns off when I hold down the power button to turn off the machine. When I push the power button to turn it on, it clicks and hums, as it normally would, but ...

Re: Dead Laptop??

I've tried the forced restart as you suggested several times, but the screen is still black. It was not plugged into an external monitor or wall power. The laptop was asleep and unplugged just overnight after being used, plugged in to wall power all evening.
