Re: Apple -vs- Amazon

Apple posts net profit of 13.6 billion, or $2.33/share, with a gross margin of 39.7% - stock drops 6%.
Amazon posts net profit of 92 million, or $0.19/share, with a gross margin of 4.6% - stock pops 16%.

So I guess at this point

Re: Default Word Font

Your info was way more complicated than I did.

I just opened up Word '16 and my new default font opened to Arial 12.

This didn't work?

I did as I described above. I went to format---font---changed to arial 12---pressed [more]

Re: Default Word Font

Go to Formaat>Font.

If you can't find formaat then choose format. :)

Re: Default Word Font

Anybody know a way to change the Word 2016 default font? It appears to me MSFT has hard-coded Calibri 12 point.

Go to Formaat>Font. Choose what your new font and size then choose default at the bottom left.

Re: New A8 iPod Touch models

Once Comcast prevented using the DVR fast forwar It's not Comcrap that's doing preventing the use of FF for OnDemand. It's the individual channels. Same thing happens on DirecTV. If you record the shows live, that is not an issue. [more]

You always need the "Johnny-come-lately fans" or any sport won't survive. Always need an influx of new fans and need to keep them.

Re: Way OT, baseball scoring rule

I'm sorry, but you give a hit to the batter. In fact, that happened in an NCAA game I was at. A hit was credited.


I was thinking in the case of an infield fly that touches a runner.

So the correct answer is, no if it was the [more]

Re: Way OT, baseball scoring rule

Yes, if that was the third out. 8-)

Doesn't matter which out it is, no hit is recorded. Runner is out and fielder nearest to the ball gets credit for the put out.

Re: Holiday Notifications 10.10

I suspect you have subscribed to a calendar. Try these:

whatever I have subscribed to is unchecked in both the calendars list on the left side and under accounts and delegates. I don't see any holidays listed for iCloud.

Holiday Notifications 10.10

This is driving me crazy.

On both my Mac's, currently running 10.10.4, I keep getting holiday notifications. I don't have holidays checked anywhere. In calendar preferences "show Holidays calendar" is unchecked for iCloud. I have [more]

Re: Updated post re: Office for Mac came first

And I guess on PCs it was WordPerfect. It's not surprising that Word 1's origins are long-forgotten.

Earliest word processor I remember for the PC was Word Star.

Re: Personal Hot Spot?

This doesn't make sense to me...if I set up a "personal" hot spot shouldn't I be able to use it myself? Totally do not understand this...

Re: Name Change?

It shouldn't be "this is how is works on Linux, OSX or Windows 7" when the OP has Windows XP. I would assume Steven asks about the OS before providing advice in his business.

Re: Qt. re Wireless Security

I'm going to disagree slightly with Steven, mainly because the scenario described by the OP included a combo modem/router/AP provided by AT&T. Personally, I don't trust the access control on those ISP-provided units at all. In most cases, you [more]
