Re: Anybody Here.......?

If you use Migration Assistant to set up your new Mac it might just move Office over without any fuss.

Re: Ives Design Language

So I have a question that may be a bit controversial, has the design language of Jony Ives run its course at Apple?

My opinion: I think Ives' industrial design is elemental and timeless, so I think it has a lot of life left in it, as [more]

Re: Photos & iCloud again

What do you use for offsite backup?

Me? For backup? I use Crashplan, both for its family plan and for its peer to peer backup capability. But my primary backups are Retrospect and Time Machine. iCloud is not a factor.

The point is to make your entire photo library available on all your devices.

Re: Windows 10 to ship in seven different versio

The version of Windows 10 that runs on mobile devices is not binary-compatible with the version that runs on desktops. In other words, they are different operating systems with the same name.

It's as if Apple called the OS on iPhones and

Re: Windows 10 to ship in seven different versions

Microsoft's unnecessarily complicated marketing plans aside, I, for one, would be very interested in seeing Windows 10 on a Raspberry Pi or Intel Galileo, which aren't mentioned in the article. Raspbian, on my RPi, still doesn't feel entirely ready [more]

Re: MBPro - vacation plans

When I go on vacation, I usually lock mine away, not charging. I've had no problems with ~10 day vacations and lost data.

Just as importantly, before departure, I complete backups of all my computers and then distribute the backup drives to [more]

I came to my Mac mini (Mavericks, etc.) this evening and found I couldn't log in from the lock screen after many, many tries. I also couldn't log in remotely via screen sharing. Basically, except for the login/unlock prompt [more]

Re: What Apple planning for the new Apple TV

I wonder why advertiser-supported local channels don't offer free streaming? After all, it would increase their potential viewership, and thus allow them to charge even more for ads.

Re: iSpy: the CIA history of iPhone security hac

Should we be proud that they've spent so much effort trying to crack Apple, or just be happy Apple's really PO'd them now?
