Re: Apple TV ????

Is there some basic step we are missing?

Based on using the ATV for about 3 ½ years, no.

PBS for sure has no programs - well virtually none. I am told Bloomberg TV streams, but the one time I looked it did not. [more]

Re: Mac Office 2011 support ending in 18 months

Re: Moving to New Computer

I doubt seriously that uninstall would remove the data files. But to be safe, just make a copy to your desktop.

Re: Cloned to new SSD, Office confused

I have experienced issues when moving Office 2011 between PCs. I have used Migration Assistant and SuperDuper - in both cases I had to enter the Microsoft Software Key. I suspect it is a Microsoft security system. When Office (or Windows) is [more]

Re: e-mail sync issues

Peter - I appreciate you want to limit emails.

One approach is make sure the email are removed from the mail server before you have a chancel to download them to your new iPhone. If the iPhone is turned off and your email is a POP that will [more]

I can't speak about Quicken 2014, but I doubt it would different than any other of the 10 or so versions I have moved between PCs since the last 80s. (I buy a new version every 3 years).

Re: 401k loan to pay off HELOC

Your options are like a dumbbell 100% this or 100% that. Why not just pay off what you can on the HELOC while you continue to save for retirement? Yes the load will be around for longer - so what?

Re: Another college computer

If that's happening to you, something is seriously wrong.
