Re: Plantation Shutters: tilt-rod...yes or no?

Here in So Ca there are many companies offering plantation shutters. I'm trying to find out who has a high quality product. From there it will just be a matter of choosing which retailer for the purchase and install.

Re: Hot Swap Drive

You can use any SATA hard drive in a hot-swappable bay or enclosure, as long as the physical dimensions are compatible. The hot-swappiness is done by the SATA connector and controller. The connector usually has longer ground pins so that the ground [more]

Re: Seems like a legit complaint

Stocks and Videos? Music? iTunes Store? Where do you draw the line?

That requires a different app (one that Apple doesn't provide).

Re: WiFi Location Question

The easiest, most convenient location for the new router would be less than a foot from my Time Capsule. Is there any issue or conflict when two WiFi systems are inches apart as opposed to 6 or 7 feet?

Potentially, yes. Antennas can [more]

Re: lefties?

... you'll wear your watch on your ankle if an Apple Genius tells you that is the ideal configuration.

That is only after they find out that you're a bicyclist or an ice skater.

Re: Take a full-length Wonderlic Test

Are you supposed to time yourself?
How can you take a test that you can scarcely see due to all the garbage on the screen covering everything up?

Re: Calendar weirdness

I'm curious to know what happens if you try changing that event using the iCloud web site, rather than Calendar on your Mac.

I'll give that a try tonight or next time I have time.

Re: Break through 120

Some perspective: today's gain of 2.30 to the share price added $13.4B in market cap (greater than the total market cap of Best Buy).

Fun fact: Apple's market cap of ~$710B is roughly equal to $100 for every man, woman, and child on earth.

I think this is going to run until editors run out of headlines involving permutations of handling, inspecting, manipulating, adjusting ... balls

Hopefully the NFL balls are handled by the Schweddy corporation.

Re: Macbook suddenly can't join Wifi

Unplugged the Time Capsule and plugged it back in. All is better now. Very strange that the MBP was the only thing that wouldn't connect.

Macbook suddenly can't join Wifi

For some reason my Macbook Pro suddenly won't connect to my home's Wifi network. It worked fine last night. This morning it prompted me for the network password. I've entered it 5 times, sure that it's correct, but it "shakes its head" at [more]
