Re: Safari question

I agree this seems counter-intuitive, but it's hard to argue with a stopwatch!

Haven't had time to read Tog's links, but does it still hold true if one is using a larger screen?

Re: iOS 8

John I have never heard of an OS getting smaller. Have you?

No. But my question is how much larger.

I would think that developers who've been working with iOS 8 could say how big the latest downloads were.

Re: AirDrop

Most go to DropBox, instead...

My 2008 Mac Pro is not on the list of compatible devices for AirDrop.

Re: 2010 MBA Model 3,2 Problems

It's too bad you're so far from an Apple store. They offer fixed-rate repairs at quite reasonable prices. Last time I checked, it was $320 for a non-retina MacBook Pro. That includes replacing all non-functioning parts.

Thanks, [more]

2010 MBA Model 3,2 Problems

I live 400 miles from an Apple Store, but there is a local authorized dealer who does tech work.

I normally run the MBA 24/7 plugged in when not using it as a portable device.

Sometimes my MBA would not start up with the Power key [more]

Re: Magic mouse behaves like a rabbit!

there seems to be no general solution.

When I got frustrated by unreliable mouse performance, I switched to the Magic Pad. Takes some getting used to, however.
