Re: Most Profitable Product Ever?

I hope they're right, but I'm highly skeptical of every sales estimate I've seen for the Apple Watch.

They can't base their estimates on data from Apple, because Apple hasn't released any.

We don't know how much stock Apple had on [more]

Re: 1 Password - other than passwords

I think there's a key difference.

LastPass stores your passwords on their server. That means their servers have a giant bullseye on them that hackers are almost certainly constantly attacking.

I don't think the same can be said for [more]

Re: iCloud Mail

I've never seen that happen.

I get over 100 emails a day, most of them junk.

My problem wasn't that Mail was too strict, but rather that it was too lax, wrongly allowing lots of junk into my inbox.

My solution was to buy [more]

Re: 2 Apple IDs under my name

Congratulations, Tuni! I think you've finally hit on a solution to the long-running problem of people with two Apple IDs!

Use Family Sharing to share items bought with your old ID!

Re: Stupid question

I consistently have a indicator of one or more unread mails, but the mailbox doesn't have anything unread.

Is it possible you've missed one?

Re: Old iPod songs to new iPod

To get the songs onto the old iPod, you would have loaded them into iTunes on your Mac or PC, then synced iTunes with your iPod.

Well, just plug the new iPod into that same computer, and sync from iTunes to the new iPod.

You don't need it, unless you have an app that specifically requires it (probably less than 1% of all Mac apps), or unless you visit a website that specifically requires it (probably [more]

Mobile carrier iPhone plan prices compared

I'm ready to buy a 64GB iPhone 6 Plus, and am willing to switch carriers to get the best deal. The phone carries a price of $849.

So I compared various plans from three carriers*. All include a 64GB iPhone 6 Plus, unlimited minutes & [more]

Re: Shopping for new iPhone, maybe new carrier&#

So with AT&T, you pay $65 a month, plus $300 or $400 up front for the phone.

Well, that's what I thought. But it turns out my $65 rate is really an $80 rate with a $15 monthly discount. If I get a new subsidized phone, I lose [more]

T-Mobile does not [have Femto towers}…

They aren't needed for T-Mobile, because they support Wi-Fi calling — in other words, the phone can make calls over Wi-Fi directly — as if it had a built-in Femto tower.

Re: Apple photo App. replacing Iphoto

Upload to Flickr and your image is shrunk.

Flicker creates lower-res previews, but it never modifies your original file. If you upload a 10Mbit file to Flickr, and need to download it later, it's still 10Mbit.
