Can anyone recommend a Performance Test Benchmark software for Apple Mac's running OS X?

I'd like to measure the Disk/Ram/Disk-Swapping/etc on my current Mac against any scale/benchmark, so that I can go to the Apple store and purchase a new Apple Mac that is at least as fast as my current Mac, or compare the Performance of my other Macs again one another.

Cloud Class® Course: Amazon Web Services - Basic

Are you thinking about creating an Amazon Web Services account for your business? Not sure where to start? In this course you’ll get an overview of the history of AWS and take a tour of their user interface.

Working on transitioning our employees to be remote workers.  We want to have a virtualized office experience where we see and hear each other.  I tried that with Skype with on user and the video was awesome and sound was great...then after 10 minutes it crashed her computer.  So much for Skype.  Then we tried FaceTime using our phones, but the image was super grain-ey and blur-ey and sound was in and out.  

What suggestions do you guys have?  We would like good video and audio and have it done in a way that doesn't impact our workstations or tie up our office phones.

I had looked into this:

It's a little pricey and I don't think we need the robot maneuverability.

Anyway, I wonder about the bandwidth issue, or will that become an issue?  I am not sure what crashed her, but I assume Skype was hogging the internet bandwidth while she was VPN connected on her laptop and that somehow mucked the OS?

We may be transitioning to having multiple employees work remotely from home.  We are looking for ways to create an office environment, virtually.  I looked at this:

http://www.doublerobotics.com/double2.html

and it looks useful, but seems like it is just Facetime on a remote controlled dolly.  In their solution, they recommend using iPads on either end for displaying the video portion and the audio portion. The rep I spoke with from Double Robotics said he is in Washington DC and has a Robot unit in their San Fran office. He controls the robot and has it take "him" into his bosses office for a meeting, or down the hall for conference with co-workers.  Sound interesting, but in our application, we just have one group office here, then a few people "officing' from their house.

Do any of you have input or other suggestions on how a remote worker can have visual and audio of our office on a device at their office in their house?  Ideally it would be two-way, so that chatter in our office is heard there, and chatter there is heard here, thereby somewhat re-creating the group office experience.

Hello I’m using a minidisplay to DVI converter on a retina 2013. Works fine inside OS x or Windows with bootcamp. The problem is the monitor stopped working and I will give my computer malfunction like it is to another person, but when I press Command + R to make the proper data deletion and re-installation to factory, the signal is not passed to the monitor and of course the monitor of the retina not work and I can’t operate. How can I make to pass the signal to the monitor with the mini display to DVI in restoration menu with Command + R

Thank you

How do I copy folder of 70 photos from latest version of OS X high Sierra to iPhone 8S (iOS 11.4) using iTunes. This is copying (or moving) photos without changing /deleting any other files. Ads for other Apps say iTunes can corrupt other files.

Failure with TimeMachine backups. OS Problem?

I had an external disk fail to complete the Time Machine backup with no error message, that I can find. I eventually started afresh using Disk Utility. BUT it still failed!

On another front, I have been told I should re-install the underlying OS on my machine, which I am afraid to do without a current backup!

I do use Cloud based Carbonite, but do not feel safe until I have a hard external backup disk.

The reason I was advised to re-install my OS was that while using Finder, incrementing through my pictures, sometimes the cursor jumps to the end of the list. I did try some small instruction on Mac start-up, if I recall, that involved holding down certain keys.

There was a second instruction, but I sadly can on longer find that post.

So, the last suggestion was to re-install the underlying OS. And it seems I am there right now.

Can anyone suggest a nest step for me?

I can not make a current backup of my machine.

Thanks.

Please advice.

What apps or methods exist that will allow me to have a second phone number assigned to my iPhone (similar to Google Voice)?

I am a Sprint PCS subscriber and really liked the Google Voice service that replaced the iPhone phone number with my Google voice phone number everytime that I made a call using my iPhone. My Google Voice phone number would always show on other people's caller ID whenever I would call them.

However, this Google voice integration with my Sprint PCS service ended on 6/1/18 due to security upgrades and Google not producing an updated app.

So I'm currently looking for a replacement app or service I can subscribe to that will display an alternate phone number every time that I make an outgoing phone call using my iPhone X.

What apps or services are currently available that will allow this to be done?

hi guys

Our team use Mac High Sierra and whenever they try to copy a filepath in the finder and paste it into a document or in Outlook, it just does not paste. So for example, if there was a folder on the server and they want its location to be presented to others, they would just select 'copy' on that file location and paste it into an email or a document and it would paste the filepath like smb://server/filelocation.

This is no longer working!! On two separate Macs. It used to work without any issues.

Any ideas how to fix this problem?

Thank for helping

2 recently installed HomePods continue to play music (from separate sources) when all computers, iDevices have been shutdown, or so I believe. All devices on LAN are Apple  - Macs/iPhone/iPad. Music seems to be from my local Apple sources - which may be iTunes? Power cycling HomePods no help. Both HomePods controlled from local iPhone 8S/iOS 11.4.

Ah sweet mysteries - whence forth cometh the music?

I have some blockage on my iCloud email

I do not understand why, but certain emails do not show up on my iCloud account.

I logged into iCloud.com and saw no error or sign it was  not working. But I do know that certain emails have been lost. Such as, my WordPress site has an outbound email with a PDF attached. I pulled my hair out with the email not showing up until I used my trusty GMail.

Other things I fear are also blocked.

In my ThunderBird (Mac) for the iCloud email, there is no SPAM folder. So, perhaps it is being flagged somewhere as SPAM, but not visible either on ThunderBird or online at iCloud.com

Suggestions?

Thanks

I have a TM backup on an external USB disk which is not being detected by Migration Assistant.

On the desktop, it can be seen fine. For example, when I click into it- I can see the files. But how do I get it to migrate?

(The disk on which the TM backup is stored has loads of other folders on it as well...could this be a factor?)
