    Whenever I try to launch a file, even one I just created, in Ulysses, I get It's driving me nuts. It's been since I got my system to 10.9. Now it's 10.9.4, and Ulysses 2.2 (build 2.2). Now there IS a newer version of Ulysses available, but it's Ulysses 3 and it's not a free upgrade. I'd rather get this one to run on my system first, then upgrade later when or if I feel like it. And NOT just because my app refuses to function. It worked fine before 10.9. Although then it was on a different Mac, and I think in 10.7.

    Perhaps... Even Newtons still have some cool features the current iToys don't, yet... instead of going thru all the hassles trying to get it work (or to find battery replacements) it'll just be a cool piece of history on display. And the iPhone and iPad will have all the contacts and skypes and whatnot.

    Yes, I often wonder why all those companies abandoned the prime market that included PDAs :D Must be somehow related to all those smartphones, and then tablets, I'm guessing. Palm (then HP) pretty much ignored Apple for their hardware for anything after Leopard (OS X 10.5.8) Along with SGilbert, I would think that the iOS devices are a good choice, and those claim to be usable with the Mac :D Those iOS devices have many more capabilities than the older PDAs. Time to move on, eh?

    iPhone, iPad, iPod? Palm has been out of business for quite awhile, as have all PDA's that I know of.

    Hi, Is there any Palm or similar handheld organizer out there that is compatible with the iMac using Mavericks? I'm getting the impression that PDAs are simply not usable with Mac, which strikes me as monumentally moronic. Sparrowhawk

    I saw the question somewhere else and I think it is interesting. What do you think the new iPad will be called? what are meant to be the key features and USP for the new iPad?

    To me it's Tim's (or everyones else's) personal business and shouldn't be some "bloggers" business what someone do in their own sphere. To me this is just being done to try to give Apple and black eye. I just wish people would stay out other peoples bedroom! IMHO being gay today is nothing new and there are many other things people need to worry about.

    You can use Mail rather than the Gmail App. I found Gmail App bothersome, so got rid of it and use iOS Mail for the accounts I really need to check on.

    and misterme, as I understand satcomers chmod advice, it's not about naming. >Do you know your hard drive's name? You will need the name in place of YOURHARDRIVE: Code: sudo chmod 777 /Volumes/YOURHARDDRIVE Then press return and put in your password and let it run until you get another prompt. After it finished immediately reboot your Mac and this should help your situation.

    thank you misterme, for you thoughts. the way you describe your migration process sounds a lot like my process. here's a rundown of mine: used superduper to make a full clone of the internal mbp2011 HGST HDD onto an external LACIE firewire HDD. Still connecting the LACIE by firewire, restarted the computer/ booted from the external LACIE (via firewire) and checked that everything worked. It did -- tho admittedly, I did not run EVERY application -- just ran osx + firefox and saw that all my data files were where I'd thought they'd be. ran ms word, too, I think. Then: moved HDD...

    No, I am not saying erase anything. I gather that /Library/Receipts/ was copied along with everything else from your old HDD. I am, however, even more skeptical about your diagnosis of permissions problems. Earlier this year, I had cause to replace a Power Mac G5 with a compatible model. The new computer had to be back online and fully-functional as soon as I had jacked-up the old computer and slipped the "new" one under it. This is what I did: I used Carbon Copy Cloner to make a complete bootable clone of the old computer's hard drive on a MacOS Extended (Journaled)-formatted...

    to be clear: folders that are read-only: (tho the folders enclosed therein may not be) : ssd main volume folder users system library utilities applications and documents/movies/etc seem to be read/write ... which is what I'd expect. could this relate to my applications aborting and not connecting? I'm clueless. just a guess - cuz again: most of my problems seem to be related to things that animate or connect to the internet (so maybe java?)

    thank you satcomer! I googled what chmod777 does -- seems a bit scary this would (kinda arbitrarily?) convert all the files on my SSD to read/write, yes? is that a good thing? wouldn't that get me into a mess of changing files that SHOULD be read-only? (although I see no reason why anything should be read-only on my computer -- but I clearly don't really get these concepts fully.) I'm worried this would be like saying "apply to enclosed items" on the get info panel -- which might make my problems worse? (or am I mixing up "permissions" and "read/write") I do like the idea of having...

    thank you misterme -- so does that mean I should erase the library/receipts on the SSD and re-copy the folder from the old HDD? (I get that this is not magic ;)

    Permissions are not some magic file attributes that are damaged for mysterious reasons or that require incantations to repair. Each application's permissions settings are maintained in the /Library/Receipts/ folder by the.pkg bundle that was created when the application was installed. To repair permissions is to restore your permissions settings to the values in the application's receipt .pkg bundle. If your diagnosis of permissions problems is correct , then you did not clone everything when you moved your files to the SSD. Among the files not clones were those in /Library/Receipts/. If...

    thank you DeltaMac!!! :) sadly, I have already tried your first (alpha) idea. :) I re-installed OSX (you're right -- 10.9.4) yesterday after pressing cmnd+r on restart. it didn’t delete or erase anything, which was much appreciated, but it also didn’t fix any of my problems :( again, I'm not sure if this is a permissions issue -- just that upon moving to the SSD, many of my applications are messed up. so: I have re-installed 10.9.4 and: I've Repaired permissions over and over. even "Reset Home Folder permissions and ACLs" via rebooting with cmnd+r and using terminal to get to that...
