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.

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.

Thanks

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?

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?

Part 1) I have tons of images from my research, where I have the same image in many different folders, often using the same filename. These do not involve a human face.


Part 2) I have lots of redundant photos of family and friends on disk and also imported into the "Photos" app on my MacBook.
None involve a human face.

I need a solution to help reduce redundant photos on my disk, since they are starting to clog my disk.

What options to I have?

If I used Picassa, does that only match like photos when there is a human face? Or is it pattern based, so I can use it to match on pictures of buildings also?

Is there an app I can use on the Mac, which I can keep private? I do not relish handing over 100% of my research and family photos to Big Brother in the Sky.

Thanks

Long-time Quicken Windows user. Would love to move to Mac version, but at least with the previous version of Quicken for Mac, the basic checkbook register functionality of the Windows version is lacking, IMO, in the Mac version.

Anyway, I'm looking at other options for Mac-based personal finance software.  One key thing that I am looking for is the ability to migrate from Quicken for Windows withOUT having to gut the names of my accounts. For example, was looking at Banktivity (old iBank) and it clearly states that to migrate from Quicken, I have to shrink the names of my accounts to 15 characters or less. For things like checking and savings that's not a problem, but with my wife's and my investment accounts gutting those names would make it incredibly hard to work with the accounts.

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?
