Thanks for the head's up Andy! I already did the update last night and fortunately for me, I'm not using Microsoft based email so the issue didn't bite me. Big bummer for those that were hit with it!

And yes, I'm loving this update! The new dock on iPad is the real standout for me, along with the multi-tasking improvements. iPad is feeling like waaaay more of a desktop replacement in a lot of cases now. (Although the downside is how it's starting to make me crave a bigger screen, like the larger iPad Pro model. All part of Apple's nefarious plan to sell more iPads, I'm sure ;-)

On iPhone, the new Control Center is pretty sweet.

Still exploring a lot of the changes though, but this feels like one of the best major iOS versions in a while (well, other than that Outlook bug. That part is lame.)

Driving Mode is KEWL, and turns on Do not Distrub me, and sends Auto Texts!

It's a Good Reason for me, to let people know I cannot email whilst I await a patch from my Phone!

We drew straws in the office today, who should be the gambler and upgrade, last time we upgrade a major iOS we ended up with a brick!

Our firewalls are not sync'ed to public DNS so we can't create rules by URL of playstore or appstore.

Our corporate mobile devices need to have push notifications & apps install :
what's the range of IP for appstore & playstore required & the ports to permit?

I heard appstore is a Class A subnet while playstore is probably a Class B:
is it a good practice to permit firewall rules to such big subnet ranges ?

hi techs,
I am trying to play videos and pictures from my Note 5 to my Apple TV and suddenly it's not working in the last one year or so. The last time at work successfully was about a year ago and I was using allcast.  this week I've been trying to connect my phone again and no matter what I try my Note 5 will not detect the Apple TV and if some of the apps do list it it will not connect. I also tried my work Android phone which is I think an S7 and it wouldn't connect either. I have reset the network connections several times on both units and tried repeatedly with no success. I'm starting to wonder if Apple has made a change that everybody but me knows about. at this point what I think I'm going to do is buy the Chromecast and plug that in right alongside the Apple TV to see if I can use that to interface with my phone since all of the apps I've downloaded aren't working at all. My Note 5 is up-to-date with the most recent software and the Apple TV is also up-to-date with the most recent software and it is only about one year old. Any assistance with this issue is appreciated.
 thank you

For those of us, that like seeing our alma maters take a pigskin and strategically move down the field, you'll be happy to know that ESPN on the 4th Gen Apple TV has just made it an even better experience. You can now watch four games at once! That means you can watch your school's arch rival, the arch rival of your spouse's school, your alma mater, and your husband's/wife's alma mater all at the same time. Since my wife is an ND grad and I'm a Cardinal, we can now both poke fun at each other while being in the same room (no more separate TVs), which ultimately means the buffalo wings and Guinness are in the same room too. If this is not reason enough for you to get excited, then how about the other great things that come with the autumn season: the grass is barely growing, holiday cheer is in the air, and pumpkin spice is back in your coffee mug. Either way, I hope the autumn season brings you the happiness you deserve and that your school makes it to a bowl game.

This sounds pretty cool! I'm especially excited for Disney's recent announcement that they will have a dedicated ESPN streaming service that isn't tied to a cable subscription.  I just "cut the cord" again, and live sports are really the only thing  that we miss and is frustrating to access.

After logging on and while using his Mac OS X 10.9.5 computer a user repeatedly receives messages about things wanting to access and use the keychain similar to the message shown in the screenshot.

I have already performed first aid on the keychain and then verified the keychain but continue to get this message.

If we click the Cancel button this message continues to appear and keeps prompting for this password which we don't know.

What can be done to fix this issue?

I think they are considering "Tech"  companies when business happens on the internet. It greatly reduces the concept of tech companies and technology.
Technology
1. The branch of knowledge that deals with the creation and use of technical means and their interrelation with life, society, and the environment, drawing upon such subjects as industrial arts, engineering, applied science, and pure science.
2. the application of this knowledge for practical ends.
3.the terminology of an art, science, etc.; technical nomenclature.
4.a scientific or industrial process, invention, method, or the like.
5.the sum of the ways in which social groups provide themselves with the material objects of their civilization.

I would consider those "tech" companies more related to Innovation, VAS Companies

I agree, it's a fine line as to what you consider a tech company or not.

If VZW is not a tech company, then Apple shouldn't be.  They had about 66% of the sales from iPhone. Only 10% of sales were from Mac.  What about Visa?  That may not be consumer tech, but it is a the backbone for credit card transactions. Before there was a public world wide web, there was visanet.

I have 2 macOS 10.12.5 + HP 2055DN LaserJet + HP OfficeJet Pro 8210 all Ethernet [CAT-5] connected to Apple Airport Extreme.

Ever since I backed up one of the Macs with resident Acronis, a request to print from either Mac returns:

This printer has been paused. Do you want to resume printing?

If you do not want to resume the printing of jobs, you may add this job to the printer for later printing. If you select Resume and the printing of jobs cannot be resumed, this job will automatically be added to the printer.

Cancel / Add to Printer / Resume


The result of all this is NO Printing! Nada, Zilch - nothing. No matter which option I select or how long I wait. Rebooting all except Airport Extreme does not help. Sometimes the 8210 control panel displays ‘Printing’ - it does not.

As some of you may know, I have been trying for some weeks to establish a fixed IP address for this printer.l NO Luck Yet…

When I power up the printer, the IP address is: 10.0.1.134 - before the Acronis backup, I could print from both Macs until the 8210 timed out and I had to reboot the 8210.

As you might expect I am getting desperate…

If it were not that I need the color printer and there is an AC unit in my office window, the 8210 would be a candidate for Defenestration.

A solution would be most welcome !!

Apple does have a slight advantage there with it's anonymous encrypted IDs.

I fully agree with not wanting unknown companies listening all the time. On the spectrum of who is listening when, Microsoft is the worst with Windows 10, Cortana, and being actively hostile towards privacy issues. After that comes Google who does everything mysteriously, doesn't document much of what they do or give you many controls, and has an interest in gathering as much data as possible to sell to advertisers.

On the other hand Amazon Alexa doesn't listen all the time. They have very clear documentation on exactly what they do when and they let you view or delete your complete voice history at any time. Furthermore there is a physical switch to turn the microphones off. They also have a fully open SDK for both hardware and software. Their main interest is getting you to buy stuff, just like Apple.

Looking to help a friend who uses a mac - I only know windows.

He says it's running really slow.  Where would you start to troubleshoot?  

Is there an equivalent task manager to show what's running / what's taking processor power?

How do you tell if the hard drive is full? (is it the same as windows - you don't want the hard drive near full because of temp files /  etc?

How much RAM would you want on a machine these days? What mac would you say is just too old for casual business use these days?  Me, I don't like celerons or any other processors others than i5 or i7 (maybe i3).  Yes, core 2 duos run windows, but sevearl year old windows PCs just crawl with all the patches / updates / etc on a windows machine.  same for a mac?

And for windows, I'd want 8GB+ RAM.  4 would be the lowest I'd deal with.

thoughts?

Hi All I am trying to set up my DELL MFP Printer C1765nf to scan to my iMac.  They are on the same network, the printer is networked using ethernet and the iMac connects wirelessly.

I have created a scan folder called 'Dell' where it is shared and have created an account called 'printer' with a password and read and write permissions. 'Everybody' has read and write permissions.  I have gone to System Preferences and enabled file sharing and added the 'Dell' folder and the 'printer' user account.  I have also gone into Options and checked 'Share Files and Folders using SMB'.

Next on the web control panel I have entered:

Server type: SMB

Server Address: the IP of my iMac which I got from Terminal

Share Name: Dell

Server Path: Left blank as 'Dell' folder sits on my desktop

Server Port Number: 139

Login Name: printer

Password: <the password for printer>

Everytime I try to scan I get a Login Failed Error on 031-529.  Does anyone know what might be wrong?

All help appreciated!

Good morning Geeks!

If you use Hulu, you'll like this news. Hulu now has Live TV! This means for those of us that have cut the cable cord, we now have a legitimate way of watching Live TV for possibly $40. Why possibly?

As of now, the release of this app is before any official announcement of it, so you'll have to stay tuned (yeah I went there) to find out how much it will really cost.

Have a great Wednesday everyone!

Hi, Brian!

I agree. I feel that if Hulu really wants to compete with the cable companies, then they'll need to lower the price to $20 -$15.

Why?

Because most of us already pay $10 to Netflix for our on demand entertainment and don't like the idea that we'lll have to pay the price of a basic cable channel package ($50-$60) to get a live TV stream.

Having the ability to watch my college football teams (when the season starts up again) will be nice though.

Add HP 8210 Printer to Airport Extreme with USB

I have HP OfficeJet 8210 I want to connect to local Airport Extreme with USB and share with other Macs on same Airport Extreme network.

Currently I have to shutdown/restart the printer to get on the local network with IP address 10.0.1.115 which is automatically assigned at printer restart.

How do I assign permanent IP address (1.0.10.115?) to printer so that printer restart not needed and printer will be available to all local network users?

Good morning fellow Apple Geeks!

If you own a first generation Apple Watch, and its battery starts to swell for some reason, Apple has extended out the warranty for you. Despite this being a flaw in the batteries, I get excited when Apple does things like this. To me, it shows the obvious business smarts they have onboard, and that they are willing to do what we call in the military, "the hard right over the easy wrong."

In short, Apple doesn't need to extend the warranty to keep people purchasing their products. However, by doing this they are fortifying the loyalty among their base, and shocking the newcomers who are stepping into the realm of Apple for the first time. That's what happens when you own up to your faults and then try to correct them.

Good on you Apple!
