Mac OS X Contacts problem

Here's a problem I thought I'd ask here before diving into the endless mess that is Apple's discussion groups:

Every once in a while, I find my Contacts lists scrambled. The symptom is that I receive e-mail from someone I know in my Contacts [more]

Re: iTunes 12.4, OSX 10.11.5, iOS 9.3.2, iWatch

there's nothing that is making me want to upgrade immediately

Well, I upgraded my Mac software because I had read that iTunes had been simplified. I hated the attempt to bring iTunes, iOS, and Apple Music closer together, and this [more]

Re: New MacBook Pro

Why not just go to System Preferences > iCloud, sign out of your current Apple ID, and sign back in with the other? I don't see why that's not possible or why it should cause problems.

You mentioned setting your MBP up with one Apple ID. [more]

Re: Rant

Are some of the tracks you're trying to listen to Protected AAC files?

FWIW, despite iTunes having removed DRM for most (?) music a long time ago, I was surprised to find a large number of Protected AAC files in my library, e.g. from old [more]

Re: Carl Icahn

Why should he be more right now than then?

It's not clear to me how the "why" can be answered, but based on the evidence -- the actual stock price right now -- I think he was very, very wrong less than a year [more]

iMovie import trouble

I was importing some new video into my iMovie library, and I suddenly realized that a whole lot of my clip dates got hosed.

This is in iMovie 10.1.1, the current version, but I had imported most of my iMovie events in the previous version [more]

Re: Apple Calendar question

My question, once you upload it to the web, is there any web-app that can access it and display the data? Or is only option to download it and see it with Calendar?


Well, I just tested it with Google Calendar:

Re: Apple Calendar question

You can Export to .ics format files. If the website you want to use can accept .ics files, then you can import the file.

Re: Sometimes, high-end hardware DOES matter

I've said this before, or something similar, long long ago:

I really don't think Apple wants to compete for the kind of game players who really really want the highest-end hardware and who call their computers "rigs" or [more]

More self-flagellation: The balloons may have been 36 mcf, not 40 mcf, though CSBF provides them. Now I know why I typed 3.6 mcf -- I have been looking at solar proton anisotropies from 1.8 to 3.6 MeV... so 3.6 was on my mind at the time.
