Re: iCloud

As I've posted here earlier, I signed up (recently) for MobileMe using their offer of a trial subscription. After a few weeks of it, I cancelled the service and when the "sorry you're leaving" window came up asking "why?" I clicked the "Too Complicated" button. I could not understand what was being ...

Disk Won't Mount

I am posting this note for a recently joined club member. These folks have a PC formatted (FAT 32) external Seagate 500 Gb hard drive which had been working fine up until a few days ago. It contains their iTunes library and also a sizable iPhoto library that has no other backup. (Yes... no backup). ...

Re: desktop folders.

I'm a little puzzled why ANY of this should be going on with a new Mac. As we all know, when you open the box and take it out, it should work pretty much perfectly and they usually do....

Re: desktop folders.

Does it sound as if she's doing a right click instead of a left click if the contextual menu (with choices) is popping down? Or as if the prefs on the mouse or other device have been changed? Or if the mouse was simply upside down?

Re: Where'd it go?

I think the idea of having a separate forum for a new system version makes sense when that system first comes out and we all need to deal with it. There gets to be a point where those topics just needed to get folded into General Discussion. I guess we've done this in an ad hoc way.... guess we'll a...

Re: Movie Recommendation: The Pixar Story

I watched the Pixar Story last night (on Netflix) and agree with Stephen that it was well worth watching. But somehow this thread failed to mention another point of great interest to this club and our members. Or at least one of our members! Did you not notice the appearance early in the film of RIc...

Re: iPhone keeps asking to join wifi network
