Re: Installing hand spray for tub

Adding a spray head and diverter might be possible, depending on access to the plumbing. Well, I guess it's always possible, if you're willing to pull the tub out to get to the pipes. Is there an access panel on the tub skirt or surround wall to [more]

Re: house purchase options

I'll do some research on the $250k tax free opportunity, I assume the $250k is a lifetime limit or if your gain is less you lose the rest (ie., gain is only $100K, can he use the other $150k on a subsequent sale(s)?).

No, the capital [more]

Re: iPad/iPhone Photos To TV?

At this point, I'm curious if anyone here has used the Lightning Digital AV Adapter or a non-Apple gizmo that supposedly does the same thing and can comment about it/them.

I meant to put this in my previous reply. Yes, I have the [more]

Re: iPad/iPhone Photos To TV?

The Lightning/HDMI adapter is the probably cheapest way to do what you want.

Re: Personal Hot Spot?

Tuni - access the hotspot from what? Another device, or the iPhone itself?

I think you're confusing the hotspot functionality of the iPhone with connecting the iPhone to a local hotspot (hotel, coffee shop, etc). If so, forget anything [more]

Re: Life Insurance

Life insurance is not an investment product. It's insurance. And the only time you need life insurance is if you have a need for money after you're dead. If you need a lump sum so your wife has a comfortable life if you die unexpectedly, then get [more]

Re: So what do I calculate 4% of?

Here's how I intend to do it. Remember the KISS principle. Once a year, for example, January 1st, calculate the funds against which the 4% is drawn, multiply by 4% and that's that year's draw. Draw down the money that year as needed, weekly, [more]

Re: False tax return filed with your Tax ID numb

I wonder what information, exactly, would need to be redacted from a fraudulent return. Seems to me that if it was my SSN, I should be able to see whatever they filed in my name.

I'm guessing they would redact the address used for [more]

Re: Qt. re Wireless Security

I'm going to disagree slightly with Steven, mainly because the scenario described by the OP included a combo modem/router/AP provided by AT&T. Personally, I don't trust the access control on those ISP-provided units at all. In most cases, you [more]

Re: Roku vs DVD player

Unless you actually USE your DVD player, replace it with a Roku or maybe an AppleTV. The dedicated boxes actually get upgraded with new capabilities ("channels") fairly often, while you're unlikely to get many software updates for an [more]

Just close the screen so it goes to sleep. Laptops use very little power when in sleep mode.

Re: Qt. re Wireless Security

If you replace the switch with a router, protect the router admin interface, and DON'T turn on Wifi in the router, you'll be doing pretty good on protecting the Macs. With that setup, the wireless clients and the wired clients are essentially on [more]

Re: Qt. re Wireless Security

My question is: Will activating wireless for my tablet open a door for intruders to access our MacBooks? In other words, can an intruder somehow use our wireless access to connect to the ethernet cables that connect our MacBooks?

Yes. [more]

Re: iPhone deleting emails

Then it's probably the POP client on your desktop that's deleting them from the server. The iPhone is IMAP only, so once it's gone from the server INBOX it's just gone. If you want emails to stay in your server INBOX indefinitely, you should switch [more]

Are they set up for IMAP on both the phone and the desktop, or is the desktop POP?

Re: iPhone deleting emails

What email provider? iCloud? GMail? Something else? Do you have multiple email accounts, and if so does it happen to email in all the accounts?

Re: Testing a phone

I'm on my third iPhone. I've never seen an easy way to open them to get at the innards. Good luck.

What does that have to do with the original question? SIM cards aren't hard to swap, and that's the only access the OP needs.

Re: Testing a phone

I think that would work. Worse case is you could take it to a Sprint store and see if they can test it.

But I have an iPad that has our email accounts (wife and mine) and unfortunately, it suffers the same malady, with no way to maintain distinct users.

You might want to look at some of the alternative email programs for the iPad, and [more]
