Yes, I know better than that. I can only plead the high altitude of Denver for a muddled mind. :-)

Genius Bar Experience

Wow! Did Stephen provide an excellent recommendation a couple months ago.

I had a misbehaving MBA, out of warranty, that the local authorized store diagnosed as a possible bad motherboard. The closest Apple Store is 350 miles [more]

Re: Aha, a fix for my 10ft cable!

Method 3: Buy a longer cable from monoprice.com. That warning should not appear.

Re: iTunes 12 text size

I also slid the slider a bit to the right to increase contrast even further.

Since then I have backed off the slider to Normal, because some text began to show some red shadow on some letters [but not all].

Re: iTunes 12 text size

True, but checking Contrast made a huge difference to my ole eyes.

That nudged me to go back and check to see that I had checked Contrast.

Not only was it checked, but I also slide the slider a bit to the right to increase [more]

iTunes 12 text size

Apple now has a one-size-fits-all policy when it comes to text size in iTunes 12.

It is possible to select the size of the list format between small, medium, and large. This does adjust the format line height, but not the text size. But that [more]

Re: iTunes display options

Is that Windows or iOS?

Re: Yosemite & Spotlight

He mentioned two differences that I just haven't experienced: 1) the location of the spotlight icon and 2) the appearance of the Dock, which he said is now transparent.

An interesting development: My initial comment was based upon my [more]

Re: Yosemite

Wow, looking different may be an understatement. It seems to be completely transparent.

Hence the colors of that nice view of Yosemite appear in the background of the dock, ruining the appearance of the icon colors.

Re: Yosemite & Spotlight

Yes, I found it. It's no longer at the extreme right of the Menu bar, but some arbitrary location in the middle.

Strange how simple changes can upset an old man's mind...

Yosemite & Spotlight

I've installed it only in an MBA thus far, and I didn't find Spotlight. What happened to it, or am I just missing something?

Re: Don't Want Photos/Music on new iPhone

If the Photos you are talking about are in the iPhone 4's Camera Roll, you will have to move them from the iPhone 4 to your Mac. I don't off hand know how to do that, but I do know there are many ways

I use Apple's Image Capture app [more]

Re: What have I done?

iOS 8.0.2 is out and installing it may help your problem. 8.0.1 was notoriously buggy.

AirDrop

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

Is there any way of adapting it so AirDrop can be installed?
