I am trying to understand from a high level, what Google Wallet and Apple Pay do and a high level view of how they do it.

I am not a security expert but eventually hope to understand the security each uses. But I am not ready for that kind of discussion.

Thanks.

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!

I can not remember how long this problem has existed, but I did upgrade my cell phone from iPhone 6 to 7 a few months ago.

I enter a new contact into Contacts on my El Capitan MacBook, but it never shows up on my iPhone. I make sure to select the

"All iCloud"

choice on the left side, under "iCloud"

What could be wrong?

Thanks.

I don't think there is any such software since I've been searching for days but I thought I'd ask on here as a last ditch effort.
I am looking for music management software (that runs on Windows) that supports both streaming from an Android device over the internet (ideally it has an Android app) and synchronizing an iPod.

My current set up:
  • iTunes as music management software, in order to synchronize my iPod.
  • CloudPlayer to stream from my Android device (all of my music is on Google Drive).
  • iSyncr to synchronize select playlists from iTunes to my Android device.

This set up isn't terrible but CloudPlayer does not feature all of the playlists I have in iTunes nor does it allow me to sort by iTunes fields (date added, etc.). I could technically just sync all of my music to my Android device as well but I don't really want to use up 40GB on my device for this purpose when I have a data plan large enough to support streaming on demand.

I know people who travel internationally quite often, and they need to:

1) select the countries of interest
2) view a combined calendar of holidays

I hope this exists.

Do Macs have or is there any way software available that will transfer a user's files from the Mac OS X Sierra OS directly to a Windows 10 OS on another computer?

Or do these files need to be manually copied from the Mac OS to the Windows 10 OS?

Are there any known problems with having an Office 365 & Gmail profile (using IMAP) in same Mac Outlook 2016 email profile at the same time?

A user I support has intermittent issues with his Office 365 Inbox and calendar not updating within Mac Outlook 2016 and we are wondering if this might be caused by the fact the he has both Office 365 and a Gmail email accounts setup within the same Mac Outlook 2016 profile.

A user with a MacBook Pro (13-inch, 2016, Four Thunderbolt 3 Ports) running Mac Outlook 2016 has an issue where Outlook intermittently doesn't update the emails & calendar events. Outlook is connected to Office 365.

Outlook can be used without any problems but won't update the Inbox & calendar events unless Outlook is closed and opened again.

We have scanned the Mac using Malwarebytes and Norton antivirus and no problems have been found.

The Mac laptop is connected to a secure office Wi-Fi network and doesn't have any other problems.

The Wi-Fi is working fine as the user is able to connect to websites, print, and do everything else that requires a network or internet connection.

There are also several other Macs in this office that are connected to the same Wi-Fi network and are using the same Office 365 e-mail domain and none of them are having this issue.

We have already uninstalled Office 2016 (using the approved methods) reinstalled Office 2016 and all Apple and Office 2016 updates are installed.

What else can be done to fix this issue?

A user with an Office 365 account has problems when he puts meetings on his iPhone's calendar.

These meeting never appear within Mac Outlook 2016 on his Mac (which is running the macOS Sierra v. 10.12.6 OS).

The user also says that meetings he puts on his Mac Outlook 2016 calendar don't always appear on his iPhone calendar.

All Mac Office 2016 updates have been installed.

What can be done to fix this issue so that the calendar meetings on the iPhone and Outlook 2016 will always fully sync?

Mac came up 10.2.2 update and asked for Appleid sign in. OK. Then opened Apple mail and the "On My Mac" folder is missing & I can't figure out how to get it back. There is only one active imap account on this machine (plus an iCloud account but thats not enabled in mail) The imap mail is working fine but the local folder under On My Mac are not accessible until I can get On My Mac to reappear.

Any suggestions?

Am frustrated by Itunes. I want to buy an item of music. I open Itunes, go to store, search and find the item I want.  It has a price tag on it of .70 cent. I know want to buy it. I check My Account signing in with  my Apple Id. My credit card details etc are all there. Back to the Itunes page with the item.  But I CANNOT SEE ANY DOWNLOAD BUTTON, OR anything whatever about 'checking out', or PAYMENT.  What to do?

If you're an app developer (iOS or Android) and want to add facial recognition to your app for free, then you may want to take a peek at ZoOm. Maybe Experts Exchange will add it to their nifty little app.

Side note: You won't be able to use it to replace the fingerprint reader on your iPhone. I too was excited by the prospect of swapping one biometric for another, but sadly it doesn't have that function.

Interesting... I've seen the rumors that Apple is already planning for the iPhone 8 to use facial recognition for unlocking the phone. Wonder if they'll expose that in their dev APIs for other apps to use and how that'll affect FaceTek.

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.
