Re: 2011 iMac Internal Hard Drives Now Proprietary

Note that the iMac design makes it rather difficult to replace the hard drive in any case. You need special tools to remove the glass cover, then you need to remove the whole display, all just to reveal the hard drive. Also, there's been a lot of heated discussion of this issue on Macintouch. Appare...

Re: Apple to move Bellevue store out of Microsoft's shadow

So, an Apple Store is doubling its size. But the real reason for the move is fear of Microsoft. Please! Let's keep in mind that Apple has the best stores, period. Apple has become iconic in smart phones. Apple has created the tablet computer market. (And no one challenged Apple until after iPad 2 ar...

Re: Be aware of MAC Defender malware!

MACDefender updated yet again. As usual, I add the admonition to never, ever download software unless you specifically went searching for that software. If you're concerned about viruses or other malware on the Mac platform, ask here before you do anything. Also note that this thread describes my a...

Re: Apple TV

Also, some TVs have Netflix built in.

Our use is to get iTunes U (and other video lectures) on our TV. We can even get Karen lecturing to her classes, right in our living room!

Also, we can see our own photos on the TV, on the off chance we want to show them to someone.

Audio Recording on iThings

Sorry I missed the GarageBand demo last week. I know there's a voice recorder included with iPhone. And I know that video recording also picks up sound well. What I'm wondering is if there's anything better for recording sound on the iPhone. I see a lot of multi-track recorders in the app store--rec...

I might be interested in the Sibley guide, but since I have iBird, probably not immediately. http://www.birderslibrary.com/features/iphone-bird-guide-comparison.htm http://ibird.com/compare.aspx ht...

Re: Birds give thumbs up to iBird Explorer Plus

Is there an app that will allow you to photograph the bird and it will tell you everything you need to know? Well, I haven't tried switching back and forth between images on an iPhone, but you could photograph a bird--assuming you could get close enough with your iPhone--then check between the phot...
