That all sounds good, especially the article and video part. I am just excited I can leave it landscape and not have to turn it just to read EE.

Wonderful. If only it was for Windows Phone - or at least Windows 10/Mobile.

Hi

Anyone any experience of imaging these machines ?  I have built my first machine and its all ok, I would normally use Clonezilla for imaging but it reports a GPT/MBR mismatch so doesnt work.

I will have about 40 machines to do so ideally looking for something fairly quick to deploy.

Thanks

In light of the WannaCry ransomware attack that affected millions of Windows machines, you might wonder if your Mac needs protecting. Yes, it does and here is how to do it.

I am new to these machines and am having difficulty setting this to do the most mundane of tasks.
I have Antivirus software that I have installed and configured to update and scan, however this requires manual intervention.

it would be good to set this up to run - on start - or at a specific time of night - or simply at the time of choosing.

it would not just be with this app.... but would be useful for others.

However, what I have been able to find is there are products that can be purchased as add-ons. Is this the case with most or all of MAC utilities?

Any assistance gratefully received

@Brandon: You're forgetting the market of people that don't want Amazon and Google listening to everything they say all the time :-)

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?

What is the best powerbank I can buy for charging both a Lenovo laptop and a MacBook Pro on the go?

I've found some options here, but it's not easy to choose the right one:

http://www.techradar.com/news/top-8-best-portable-laptop-battery-chargers-and-power-banks-in-2017

I need to be able to bring it with me on the plane also.

Here are 2 different methods presented:

But if I choose the wrong powerbank, can I damage the computer battery?

And when I click 'erase' then the iPad does get erased, I set it up again as a new device then but Configurator will still complain that it's already prepared!! and suggest to erase it again!? Any ideas?

Hi,

Is it possible to configure an iPad so that it will boot into a certain app and activate a kiosk mode so that the users can't get out of it (without a passcode)? If yes, how?

Thanks!
0
So that people can't launch certain elements of an app, for example.

This is possible with 'Guided App' but we need a solution that results in an app loaded in kiosk mode automatically ...

Thanks!

In windows explorer on a windows operating system, folders are always grouped together at the top alphabetically followed by the files below it also alphabetically.  

On my Mac, the folders are not displayed at the top despite my changing of the order or screen view.  So when I'm looking to save a new documents in my documents folder, I cannot easily find my sub-folder quickly due to lots of files being in there.  

How do I fix this?

We have iPhone 7 plus syncing to a brand new computer that has a fresh iTunes installed; both devices are updated in latest versions, etc.   The problem is that the iPhone has a bunch of music and audio recording.  However when we click on "Sync Music" in iTunes, it says it will delete all iPhone music & video contents.  On this new computer we have 5 new songs we want to sync, or add, to the iphone; we don't want to delete the contents already in the iPhone.

How can we sync iPhone with iTunes, add these 5 new songs and not delete the existing music/video content on the iPhone?

I have a Mac Pro running the latest version of OS X. I, unfortunately need to run Windows to manage my network, and I'm using VMWare Fusion to create Windows 7 and 10 VM's. I am using an Apple Magic Trackpad 2 device. Mostly when I'm running the VM's, it works OK, but occasionally it will just start tracking badly. Either it will track way too fast or be jerky in it's tracking. Then it will settle down and work fine for a bit. Today I started experimenting with having the track pad plugged into it's USB charging base all of the time and, while I've not done this very long, it seems more stable. I assume that I'm still connecting via BT.

Has anyone else seen this or have a solution for this issue?

Thanx...

I have always been a window person other than the iPhone and iPad and I am looking into learning IOS development.

Looks like I will need to buy some type of Mac and from what I can tell the XCode 8 requirements are 10.12 which is Mac OS Sierra right? I am looking at some Mac Mini's that have OS X Yosemite which is 10.10 so that wont work for XCode 8 right?

With the Macs can you upgrade to a higher version of OS or is that a paid upgrade? How would I tell what hardware would support the upgrade to 10.12?

Any suggestions on Mac's I should look at for a barebones system to start playing around with developing? Once I get more serious and get a feel for it I will get a beefier system.

Can the mac devices like the Mac Mini be used with a non Apple monitor?

Okay, I'm in murky territory because I half know what I'm doing. Here's the run down.

I'm trying to update Desktop Server on my Mac. The latest version has undergone big changes and it's been impressed upon us to backup our sites. I'm following the instructions here. I've gotten to the Activity Monitor part and am trying to get a sample of the mysqld.
I had two showing up in activity monitor due to an old Mamp installation. I used the command line to totally turn that off. So, now I have one occurrence in the activity monitor. But, when I go to get the sample it just hangs. I don't know why or what to do...

I need to make sure the mysql server is off before I make my backup.

I am a C# developer and Mac user and like the idea of using Microsoft's Visual Studio 2017 for Mac to write a cross platform app for iPhone and Android.

I have played with Xamarin and understand it's actually a website I would be offering, which is in stark contrast to an Objective C native app.

My question involves the need to the App Store from Apple.

If I wrote a cross-plarform app, could I distribute it outside the Apple channel? An iPhone user can purchase anything they want from a website.

Wondering...

Thanks

It has been a long time, since i used the itunes to backup my Iphone along with Apps and musics, and everything.
i just realised that when i backup my apps, i can no longer see them moving to the itunes folder; while, in the past couple of years ago, i could do this.

my apps, also have downloaded data in them, for example my udemy app has downloaded videos inside it. i do not want to redownload them when i restore from iphone after a compelte erase.

i could not also get my mp3 files and my ebook. anything that is not purchased via itune store, cannot be moved and retrieved back after restore.

is there any possiblity or a software that can help backup everything from my iphone and put it in a folder, so that i can easily put it back after a clean erase, when i say everything, i mean everything from my mp3 files, videos, pictures, my apps including their downloaded contents, my ebooks, ringtones, everything.

thanks for sharing your idea and experience
