Re: Well, that was close

Certainly liens, including mechanic's liens, predate the US... but I'm not sure I believe the explanation in the Wikipedia article, which rather obviously is based on current California law rather than historical law. I'm pretty sure liens were [more]

Re: Run iPhone or Android Apps on MacBook Pro

The only thing I can think of is if you install XCode and run the iPhone/iPad Simulator, you might be able to do it -- if the simulator allows you to install apps from the App Store (and I'm not positive it will).

Nope, can't do it [more]

Re: Can't install Flash Player & ClickToFlash br

Another option, instead of changing the security preferences, is to right click on the installer file in your download directory, then select "Open". You'll get a dialog box asking if you want to run it even though it's not from the app [more]

Re: Using Airplay with Apple TV

If your primary use of the device will be to watch Amazon video content, then get a Roku instead.

Re: strange wifi behavior

I use a program called Mac DVD Ripper Pro (http://www.macdvdripperpro.com). Very easy to use.

Same thing as on the I-66 bridge from Roslyn to DC, I think. Been there for many years.

Re: Recording OTA programming with Macs

Well, I got the AM-21 working, so I'm good for now. Would still like to know what people are actually using (if anything) for future reference.

Recording OTA programming with Macs

I used to use my DirecTV AM-21 to record OTA programs, in conjunction with my HR-34 DirecTV receiver. Something's wrong with that combo, and I can't seem to get it to work. Rather than chase down the issue there, I'd like to find a solution that [more]

Re: ITunes on Amazon Fire TV!!!

Re: Reposting this Password article

I set up Apple ID's for each family member, which they enter for their iCloud accounts on their iPhones, for example, but as the kids don't carry their own Credit cards, they enter my Apple ID for the iTunes and App Store.

Re: "This device not supported"

Almost certainly caused either by the non-Apple power supply you had the iPhones plugged into, or a bad cable. That's the message you get when the phone tries to figure out what device is on the other end of the cable, and can't.

Re: Analyze my $1.4MM Retirement Portfolio

I think he suffers from "fund of the month" syndrome. He heard good things about some fund, so he bought it, even if it's a bad duplicate of something else he already owns.
