Re: MacBook Air Conceens

Why are you shutting it down "using the power key"? That's a sure fire formula for corrupting all kinds of files, including your OS. Click the little black Apple icon in the top left corner, select Shut Down... and then let your Mac go through its normal shut down routine. Did you mean to title this...

Re: New iPhone & Cell service??

From my house I can see the lights on the Verizon tower on Mt. Pleasant. Even with line-of-sight the tower is so far away the best I can get is two bars on my iPhone. But it connects and that's all that matters.

Re: New iPhone & Cell service??

The big problem with companies like Consumer Cellular is that they don't own their own infrastructure (e.g., cell towers). They "piggyback" on the companies that do have their own infrastructure by buying access. What that means is Consumer Cellular (and all the other independents) are really provid...

Re: How to see amount of space available on HD?

In the upper left-hand corner of your display click the little black apple icon. Then select ABOUT THIS MAC, then select STORAGE. You'll see a graphic display of all your storage devices with your internal HD on the top. It'll tell you how much space you have and how much is still available.

Re: Apple reduces price on iPhone batteries

I emailed my AppleCare contact who handled the whole process asking him why I got a refurb rather than just the battery replacement. He did some checking and got back to me with the following... When they were doing the battery replacement they ran a lot of diagnostic tests and found that some compo...

Goodbye To 32-bit Applications

A recent article on CultOfMac says that Apple will not allow 32-bit applications to run on the MacOS after High Sierra. Apple has already notified developers that they need to update their older 32-bit apps to 64-bit ASAP and Apple has stopped accepting new applications for sale in the App Store if ...

Re: Apple reduces price on iPhone batteries

Strange things happened. On the morning of 4/09 I received an email that Apple had received the iPhone and the replacement battery would be installed soon. Then on 4/10 I received another email telling me that my "product" had shipped. But my iPhone had gone to CA and the product was shipping from P...

Re: Apple reduces price on iPhone batteries

Just a follow up to what's been happening. I requested a new battery at the reduced rate on 1/22/18 only to be told that they were out of replacement batteries and I would be contacted as soon as new batteries were available. On 4/4/18 I received an email from Apple telling me that they had new batt...

Not having 1Password is a deal killer for me.
