Re: iCloud Mail

I've never seen that happen.

Thanks Steve for the link. Mail showing up in Junk folder is apparently not just my experience...according to Apple Discussions. Still happening with new OS.

iCloud Mail

I have used my Apple Mail since inception and for me it was always the most trustworthy. Not so anymore. I just found three days worth of mail in my Junk file. Many of these emails are very regular emails to my iCloud address. A few of them are what [more]

Re: Retired with IRA

Can you transfer an IRA to a Living Trust?

There is no need to put your IRA into a Living Trust because the IRA requires that you name beneficiaries. Nor your life insurance policies, I believe.

Living Trust....your house, [more]

Re: Retired with IRA

If the market does great.....and your stock percent rises...you can take the RMD from the stock funds. Leave the cash alone for protection.

If you are like me, you are invested in dividend stocks. You have a constant inflow into your [more]

Re: Apple photo App. replacing Iphoto

Upload to Flickr and your image is shrunk. Okay for web shots storage but not okay if you want to save pics to print or use in ads.

I have Flickr ($25 per year). It used to be a much better site than it is now, so I rarely go there [more]

Re: Apple photo App. replacing Iphoto

An offsite backup will not always be completely up to date, but if your house really did burn down, even a six-month old backup would be a lot better than nothing.

Re: Apple photo App. replacing Iphoto

Hey Birgit,

My "photography" photos always go to Aperture and then PS if needed....

Does Aperture directly transfer to PS?? I haven't used Aperture since one of the earlier versions...I have used LR since early in LR3

Re: Apple photo App. replacing Iphoto

Very true....I have 4 4TB drives, plus others. A disaster could wipe me out because they are all in my office.

Re: Apple photo App. replacing Iphoto

Contrary to what Birgit said many people do keep all their photos in iCloud. She may be saying she couldn't put all her images in iCloud - but I doubt that. iCloud accounts go up to 1 TB ( [more]

Re: Apple photo App. replacing Iphoto

Big PITA if you ask me. Now I have to learn to use LightRoom if I want a program that will upgrade.

From what I understand, you will be moving all your iPhotos to the new Photo. But you can still keep iPhoto, just not upgrade it. Same with [more]

Not quite sure what you mean with 3 desktops. I can only say I have an external monitor. If I want to work on the external I just slide my mouse over there....everything is on my internal DT till I slide a window to the external monitor. Then I can [more]

Re: OS9.2.1

Since the MacPro will hold four drives, I would prefer to install on one of the "other" drives and just boot up from that one. I don't have a Snow Leopard disk...maybe my daughter has it. If I get it, I will probably need some advice....I [more]

Re: OS9.2.1

To run it on an Intel Mac, you'd need Rosetta, which last ran on Snow Leopard, so if you could dual-boot your MP in Snow Leopard, you could possibly use OS 9.

Original install disk has Tiger...10.4+

Don't know what you mean [more]

OS9.2.1

I see OS9 is available on Amazon....Can I CC clone OS9 onto a blank disk in my MacPro (which is running Lion) and boot into it? I have some old games that only run on OS9 or under that I would like to revisit.

Now sorry I gave away my OS9.5 [more]

Visit to Genius Bar;-)

My daughter's 2010 27"iMac has been giving her grief for a long time. She bought new RAM as she only had 4GB! Now she was up to 12GB and a wonky computer. We erased her drive, installed Yosemite and computer still ran slow.

Finally she [more]

Re: Coming soon to replace iPhoto and Aperture

Photo seems like an excellent replacement for iPhoto. Not so much for Aperture. I will keep my Aperture library. I suppose I finally will have to subscribe to Adobe's Cloud Apps and learn to use Lightroom along with everyone else.

Thanks for [more]

Re: Yosemte 10.10.2 weirdness

Did the restart fix it? I have 10.10.2 on both MacbookPro and iMac. The only thing I notice is my laptop is now kind of slower to pick up the WiFi.
