Re: Password: Make that plural

1Password does NOT store any information online that isn't encrypted. If you use 1Password on multiple appliances such as your iMac, iPad, iPhone, Macbook, etc. then you need to sync all of them. One way is using Dropbox but the common information is NOT stored in the Public folder and it's encrypte...

Re: Password: Make that plural

Another option is to use 1Password, a forum supporter. It will create passwords that are so complicated that they are virtually foolproof. All you have to do is remember one password and 1Password will do the rest. Go here to find out more about this program and try it FREE for a limited time. There...

iPhone Reception Inside A Dead Fish

So here I am in Sodom & Gomorrah with neon lights watching one of the most intelligent shows around...Penn and Teller. Penn is a well known Apple buff. For their opening trick they made an audience member's iPhone disappear then reappear in a sealed box in the audience. We knew the iPhone was in the...

Re: emailing "Pages" document to "Windows" user

Thank you, Richard, for your helpful and accurate directions! I was able to accomplish what I needed to do. I thought the iWork route was complicated too, but that is how the tutorial instructed me. Now I know a better way. Thanks again, Jolie Your welcome! I think Apple is trying to get us used to...

Re: emailing "Pages" document to "Windows" user

After you create your Pages document, use the drop down menu FILE-->EXPORT and save it as a Word document (.doc). I save things like this to my desktop.

Then simply attach the .doc file to an email and send it to him.

Why use iWork? That's unnecessarily complicated.

Re: New iMacs

I think that may have been a boo boo made by a store employee not yet trained in selling the new iMac. Apple didn't get as prosperous as it is by giving away merchandise. From what I've read you have the option of the mouse or the trackpad. We'll have to wait for more people to buy the new iMacs and...

Re: New iMacs

You still didn't say if you selected the mouse or the trackpad.

Re: New iMacs

Did you choose the Magic Mouse or the trackpad?

In the past you had to pay an additional $69 for the trackpad but with the new iMac there's no additional charge.

Something tells me that Apple is trying to wean us away from using a mouse.

Re: Mac Book Pro suddenly won't communicate with printer

This forum is great. Even when our members don't have the answer someone will do an extensive search and find it for you.

Now that you've discovered what a treasure this place is you can be an evangelist and convince others to participate not only here (online) but at our SMUG meetings.
