    Am I Nuts? Or Does Anybody Else Do This?

    The Waze alerts appear on my iPhone screen. The iPhone is mounted on the windshield while I'm driving so I just need to glance over at the iPhone to see alerts. They appear rather prominently over the map so they're easy to see. So I'll have Waze running in the foreground displaying my route...

    Am I Nuts? Or Does Anybody Else Do This?

    That's the point of the post. Apple Maps sends alerts to my Apple Watch (a little ding accompanied with a vibration). I glance at the watch and quickly read the notification. For example (a screenshot from my Apple Watch): Sent from my iPhone 6 Plus using Tapatalk

    Am I Nuts? Or Does Anybody Else Do This?

    I use my iPhone to get around. GPS is wonderful and anytime I'm on the road my iPhone is on the dashboard guiding me along. I quickly dispensed with my Garmin Nuvi as I found the iPhone to be superior for navigation. I originally used the Apple Maps app exclusively. I had no compelling reason...

    Did You Get One?

    I received one as a belated birthday gift in mid July (my birthday is in January). I was somewhat skeptical about getting one before it was released. I was wondering what I would/could possibly use it for. What could this $400 gadget do for me that my $15 watch from Walmart can't do that would...

    Sound problems on iPhone 5

    My iPhone 5 has mysteriously stopped playing alert tones for e-mails and texts. Also, no sounds for key clicks and the lock sounds for locking and unlocking the lock screen. All other sounds seem to work fine. Playing music and podcasts seem normal and the ringer works when receiving a call...

    Problems with iTunes 11

    OK, maybe I'm an idiot...but I cant seem to figure out how to import media into the new iTunes 11. I've imported audio and video from CD, DVD and also from files already on my hard drive and for some reason they will not show up in the library. Some of them showed up later, mysteriously...

    AppleTV, AppleTV 3 and Handbrake

    I have an original AppleTV in the living room and I'm considering getting a new AppleTV 3 for the bedroom. I've converted a large portion of my DVD collection for the AppleTV with Handbrake using the AppleTV preset and they work fine. I notice that there are also presets for AppleTV 2 and...

    iOS 6 + Apple Maps App

    When I got my iPhone 5 on the day of release at my local AT&T store I used the Maps app to drive home, a distance of about 10 miles. Obviously I didn't need to use it to find my way home, but I wanted to test it out just to see how good or bad it may be. The pros: the maps are gorgeous, the...

    camera flash problem

    Ok, I just completed a reset of the iPhone and that fixed the problem. However, I still have no idea what caused the problem in the first place. If anybody knows anything about this issue I'd appreciate anything you can share. Thanks

    camera flash problem

    This afternoon I was snapping some photos with my iPhone 5 here in the house requiring flash. Problem is, when I pressed the shutter button the flash would flash then the the shutter would snap. As a result I got 3 photos that were completely too dark and unusable. Not sure why the flash and...

    Migrating 2 user folders to new iMacs

    Satcomer: Yes, I meant 2 user accounts when I wrote 2 user folders. I thought the two terms were synonymous. Thanks, DeltaMac. I think you answered my question. It's been quite a while since I last used Migration Assistant to transfer from one Mac to another. I'll have to watch for that...

    Migrating 2 user folders to new iMacs

    My wife and I currently share a Mac Mini and we're looking to get 2 new iMacs. How do I move my user folder to one iMac and hers onto the other?

    Well, that was not very nice.

    iPad Photos app

    iPad 1 on iOS 5.0.1. However, I used to have this feature available before. Not sure why it's missing now.
