    macOS Catalina (10.15) – What happens to iTunes' Library?

    I haven't got access to a build yet, and a fear is starting to slowly kick in... I remember when Photos replace iPhoto, and macOS created a duplicate of the photo library, basically, so at least until the user cleans everything up, he or she needs enough disk space for two libraries. Not sure...

    Timecapsule (and Airport Extreme) Disappearing Act...

    Heya. It's been a while since I created a new thread. I've been using macOS Sierra for maybe two weeks (last beta and then GM versions), and today I noticed something strange: My devices asked for the network password, which should've been saved anyway. After that, I decided to look at the...

    Outlook On The Ipad Future...

    I've had the chance to test an iPad Pro with the Apple Pencil. It's a fantastic experience to draw with it on the iPad Pro. However: The iPad Pro, for me, could never replace a "real Mac" with iOS 9. Too many tasks in my daily life include using multiple applications at the same time (or rather...

    That New Macbook 12"

    When Apple released the new MacBook, it ticked off a lot of checkboxes for me. Small. Retina screen. Light. And it comes in a dark colour scheme. (Only spaceblack would be better than spacegray.) And the new keyboard, of course. If you know me from the olden days, you know I'm a sucker for a...

    Wow. Brand New Apple Extended Keyboard Ii

    Didn't quite know where to post this after all this time... I'm quite sure if you read this thread you know that The Apple Extended Keyboard II is the best computer keyboard ever made and that it's a pity we're using chiclets on desktop computers today. For the past year or so, because I didn't...

    Larger iPhone screens?

    Wow, it's been a long time, since I've been here on macosx.com. :) But I had some thoughts and questions that I wanted to share - and hear some answers to, so I thought: Well, here's the space for it... I've been a Mac user since forever (1987, to be exact) and an iPhone user as well. I had...

    How can I prevent two computers from opening the same file at the same time?

    A customer was using Windows and we've switched them to Macs. All perfect. But! There seems to be no way of preventing two machines from accessing the same file at the same time. In Windows, Excel would say "this file is already opened on another machine" or something to that effect. The Macs...

    iOS AirPrint & 10.6.5 (shared printers)

    Although Steve Jobs apparently emailed back a person questioning whether AirPrint was cancelled and said he shouldn't believe everything on the internet, apparently Mac OS X 10.6.5 was released without support for AirPrint via shared printers. The feature officially only works with new printers...

    New iMac, Mac mini, MacBook etc.

    They updated the store much later today than they usually do, but the updates certainly are nice. I think I have to sell my 24" iMac now, because I want a quad 27" with 8 GB of RAM. Don't need it, but want it. :) (Oh: And why isn't there already one or five threads about it??) ;)

    Mac OS X 10.6 Installation FAQ Please read the FAQ carefully. If you have supplemental questions or have answers to other questions, add them in the thread and ask me to include them. (No PMs necessary!) Does my Mac support Snow Leopard? This one is really simple to answer. Any intel Mac with...

    Apple updates Mail.app for 10.5.6

    Apparently, Mail.app _may_ crash after the 10.5.6 update if it wasn't updated properly. Apple offers the update separately here: http://support.apple.com/downloads/Mail_Update Must say I haven't heard about the problem on anyone's computer so far. The text for the update reads: "About...

    iPhone nano rumours revived...

    ... and I think they're actually quite likely. One way to advance the iPhone is adding a 32 GB version, but that's a logical next step that probably will follow _before_ mid-2009, when Apple might produce the next "real" successor to the iPhone 3G. But an iPhone nano with 4/8 GB would...

    Let me google that for you...

    One of the best sites ever: http://letmegooglethatforyou.com ... Remember all those users that come on with a question without having searched the web first? Happens all the time. Now instead of just telling them to google it or googling it for them and posting a result or just the search...

    The Screens Discussion (Matte or Glossy)

    I first thought we oughta have a poll about it, but then I became aware that most people simply have a preference without ever trying out "the other one" in real life conditions (i.e. outside of a store). Hence the normal thread. When all those PC notebooks came about with the first glossy...

    New MacBook/MacBook Pro/MacBook Air next week?

    On Oct. 14, the spotlight turns on notebooks, reads Apple's media invitation. -> http://www.macrumors.com/2008/10/09/apple-invites-media-to-notebook-event-october-14th/ ... Currently, the rumours only talk about MacBooks and MacBook Pros, but I personally feel the MacBook Air might be in for a...

    The new iPod nano 4G

    Too many colours. Of course I'm thinking from a reseller's perspective here. Can't order less than 15 of a specific colour. So how should I test whether people actually _want_ a yellow 8 GB but not a purple 16 GB? Too many freakin' colours. They make a nice picture assembled for marketing...

    Safari 3.x: Focus on wrong history URL...?

    With Safari 2.x, I could start typing "macosx.co…" in the location field, and it'd show me the history of URLs starting with "macosx.co", the URL most often used being the one selected. With Safari 3.x, it's always the domain name without any path that's selected, i.e.: The first option, the...
