Re: Automatic Log In to SMUG Bulletin Board

Just a side note:

A change has been made to the default expiration time, which is the number of seconds until you get automatically logged off. (see screenshot)

Can you figure how long that is in minutes, hours, or days?

Re: Sign in To Use THIS Computer for Automatic Downloads

Can you successfully login to your iTunes account? Yes or No 3. If yes to #2, go to the Store menu in iTunes and select Sign Out. (see s...

Three steps. 1. Be sure you are not also syncing your Contact List using iTunes. That is, be sure that the check box in the Info section of your iPad configuration is NOT checked.

Re: Find my iPhone

I wish it would have the option to ring the phone after it finds the phone. That option is there. Just Click on the small info button. The resulting dialog box gives you the option to sound a chime on the phone. (see screenshot) Or you could simply dial your iPhone's number from a different phone. ;)

Once you find the photo(s) you want back, just drag the thumbnail(s) up to the Photos section of the sidebar. My guess is that the upg...
