Re: Finder has pinwheel of death

The reason that I asked about HOW you changed your Apple ID, is that there is a correct process so that things don't get messed up.

The instructions are located here: https://support.apple.com/en-us/HT202667

Hope all turns out well, whatever steps you took!

Re: Finder has pinwheel of death

Several thoughts occurred to me when reading the original post: 1. Exactly how did you change your Apple ID, and why? Since an Apple ID is used to keep track of all synced data, including iTunes, iBooks, and App Store purchases (both Mac and iOS), not to mention syncing the iCloud Photo Library ... ...

Re: WANTED: Apple Mini-DVI to VGA Adapter

I think I sold all of my older adapters to MacTraders. Try giving them a call.

I do have a nice Mini Display Port to VGA Adapter Model: A1307 that I can part with though. ;)

iPhone X "Emergency" screen

An interesting unintended consequence of using Face ID on the iPhone X is that the "Emergency" feature located on the passcode screen (see screenshot) is now not easily available to you ... since just looking at the lock screen unlocks the phone and passcode screen is bypassed! The only way to use t...

I'm eager to test the iPhone X camera. I guess we'll probably have some good weather by next June.
This is good weather. Maybe you should visit Chicago, or New England this weekend.
Anyway, I am sure you can find something to take a photo of this holiday season!

Re: iPhone X Setup

After several amusing instances of invoking Siri by accident while my iPhone 6s was in my jeans pocket, I learned to keep it screen out. Now I need to learn the opposite, as the X has no button that can be pressed by accident, and it's much more convenient and safer to have the screen facing you wh...

Re: iPhone X Setup

I found that I had to turn off "Raise to Wake" (in Settings > Display&Brightness) when I discovered that my iPhone X would wake from sleep whenever I got out of my recliner!
