Or even a used intel Mac, though you'd want to look at the price with a critical eye.

Re: GoodReader For iPhone (And iPad)

Thanks for pointing this out, Richard. On the old board, there was a discussion of password protecting a single document on the iPhone. My need is for a document of various numbers and passwords to be protected. My solution then was to put the document on my iDisk, which itself has a password. Anoth...

Re: Verizon Cell Phone Internet?

You're so right Jerry. I looked into satellite once, and not only was it expensive, but also the dish is huge, not at all like the current Dish Network TV dishes. And you need a location that looks southeast. That could require a pole or a roof mount, which may require special framing. An intel mini...

Re: Safari's arrow for previous page - disappeared

Also remember that there are Safari Extensions available for the Toolbar. Safari > Safari Extensions Gallery One I've found useful is called Shortly. In one click, it presents you with a very short URL that substitutes for the URL of the page you're looking at. That's very handy for e-mailing or pos...

More Mac Tips

Here are a couple more sources of Mac tips. I don't recommend that anyone try to memorize bunches of tips. Of course, if one tip really jumps out as useful, figure out a way to remember and use that tip. But it's also important to just remember that a tip exists somewhere. If you run into the proble...

Re: iPad Charging

Note that Apple says the iPad will charge on low-power USB ports, but only when it's off or asleep. So seeing "No Charging" doesn't tell the whole story.

iPad Charging

There's been a long discussion on Macintouch about which USB devices will charge an iPad. But the answer is clear in Apple's iPad Charging page: The fastest way to charge your iPad is with the included 10W USB Power Adapter. iPad will also charge, although more slowly, when attached to a computer wi...

Re: Movie Recommendation: The Pixar Story

The movie doesn't touch on NeXT, the computer company* Jobs founded after he was ousted from Apple. But it does give some face time to Jobs, who invested $10 million of his own money in Pixar. He was very well rewarded for that investment. He talks a bit about the "second product" syndrome. Think Ap...

Movie Recommendation: The Pixar Story

I guess the Subject says it all.
I really enjoyed this 2008 documentary, and heartily recommend it to all SMUG members.

Available from Netflix Streaming.
