Re: Let's salute Cook's genius for once

I was made to write with my right hand, although born a lefty. For a while I could write with either hand. Left handed people are supposed to be artistic, which I am. My daughter is a lefty and we "left" that as it is.

Re: Dump Apple?

Hmmm. I will need to try to sync my old iPod Classic. Have not done so in years.

When my new iMac came with a drive problem, it was replaced at the Apple store...I did not even have to go to the Genius Bar. It was replaced at the front door. [more]

Re: The mother ship

I guess I should say "welcome home". Congratulations! New management, new quarters coming, won't exactly be deja vu.

We will miss you on the AAPL board.

Re: Bugs?

I've almost always had an easy experience syncing iTunes. I've synced with photos, apps, music. Wi Fi sync has always worked for me.

I still sync my very old 3GS, and it works fine. So does our new iPhone 6, and the iPad.

Re: Java Runtime Environment Help

Thanks, I will try. I turned Java off in my System prefs and just got the darn message again!

Java Runtime Environment Help

I get repeated messages to update my Java Runtime, even though it is telling me it is up-to-date. I have finally turned it off. Why do I need it?

Re: Planning for health issues

idelity has a planner that suggests that a 65 year old couple retiring in 2014 would need an average of $220k in today's dollars to cover the typical retirement until 82 for the man and 85 for the woman. Here's an article that has a link to the [more]

Re: Disposing Of Collections Of Stuff

Don't be shocked if your prized collections isn't worth what you think it's worth though. Not unless it's something from 15th Century or something.

Isn't that usually the case? Sigh.

Re: On naming an executor

Another thing...I am seeing probate mentioned. Because I have a Revocable Trust and everything else has designated beneficiaries, there will be NO probate on my estate.

Re: On naming an executor

I am going through redoing my Revocable Trust as I write. If you do not name a family member, your estate will most likely be charged a fee. I named both my daughters as executors. All they need do is pay the bills, sell what they don't want, sell [more]

Re: Java Runtime Environment Help

I don't know. I never had these requests when on Mavericks. I assumed that Java wanted a Yosemite compliant version...I clicked on the link, downloaded, installed, and it opened in the Oracle website and said it was recognized. Crazy.

Java Runtime Environment Help

Ever since I upgraded to Yosemite, I keep getting notice blocks to install Java Runtime Environment. I have done this install successfully multiple times, yet the notice keeps reappearing. What's up with this?

Quicken 2015?

Is Quicken 2015 compatible with Yosemite? Seems I have to upgrade from 2007 to download from Discover.

Is Essentials compatible? Looks like it has not been upgraded at all.

Thanks, Birgit
