Re: iMac Epic Slow Down

so I may go to the apple store (a mile away) on Sunday. Not that I feel like lugging a 27 inch even that far

LOL. I lugged my brand new 27" iMac in the car for 25 miles. I found they had concierge parking. Greeter went out and [more]

Re: My advice for Aperture and iPhoto users

Looks like an interesting time later this year...

Fortunately, I have my "work" computer and a laptop. You better believe I will install Yosemite on the laptop to test it out with my photo apps first. And I probably will [more]

Re: My advice for Aperture and iPhoto users

But I see no benefit to switching now.

Agreed. And I hear Apple may support Aperture for a while too. But I have little hopes that the new Photo will please both consumer and professional. I have looked into the options and feel more [more]

Re: Switching from Aperture to Lightroom

I was in error...you can get PS and LR for $120 a year - more reasonable. Thing to do is a 30 free trial.

Re: Switching from Aperture to Lightroom

Apple is dropping support of Aperture? When I had the choice between that and Lightroom, I chose Aperture. I switch between Aperture and PSCS6. I can usually do all my PP in Aperture and go to PS for finishing for printing.

I am not happy [more]

Re: Deep thoughts by jack handy

Does anyone count the present value of any pensions or Social Security as an asset?

In what way? To count toward your withdrawal rate from savings? No, but certainly I count it as part of my income!

Re: Life Insurance After 70

When we were a young family, we bought whole life insurance through NW Mutual. $50,000 for my DLH...paid off cause he died at 52. A small "burial" insurance for me...one $10,000 and one $8,000. Not sure how that came about. They have been [more]

I won't worry about leaving the monitor on now. Lots to get used to with my entirely new system and cables and connections!

Two Monitors..turn one off method?

I have my Cinema Display monitor hooked up to my new iMac. Love it!! But the Cinema Display has no "off", only Sleep/Restart/Shutdown.

Do I just disconnect the USB and Thunderbolt cables?

Re: !!Setting up New iMac advice & Apple is nice

Aaaack, sorry if you all misunderstood. I cloned new iMac #1 before the drive went crazy. Apple gave me a replacement computer which I did the normal set up, computer downloaded drivers for printers/scanner. Nice.

Re: Glory Be and What the Heck!

Well damn, I spoke to soon. The genius fairy did not fix my new iMacs hard drive. It seems to be failing. I need it to fail enough so the Genius does not tell me nothing is wrong with the computer.

Glory Be and What the Heck!

Yesterday I had a Genius Bar appointment for my brand new iMac which had gone totally wonky. I feared I had a bad Fusion Drive. Spent an afternoon with very helpful and polite AppleCare drive specialist and also a software specialist. We thought we [more]

New iMac 27" boohoo

My new fully loaded new iMac27" arrived last Thursday. And on Friday it started to die....off to Genius Bar today. Bummer.

Any word on reliability of the 'fusion' drives?

Re: More MacPro Issues!!!

It's possible for a card to become unseated from a slot, but far more likely for a display cable to become unseated from the connector on the card.


Steve, thanks! I removed the display cable and reattached, just in case to follow [more]

Re: Mail and photo size

Steve, I did post very large images made into PDFs....no option to make smaller. They would not go through. Perhaps because they were PDFs?

I made them into web images at 72ppi and that did it.
