Gmail Users: Do you access your gmail only online, or do you use Apple Mail? I've been using Apple mail for my Gmail for a few years now (IMAP). However, I didn't realize how messed up it left my Gmail online (Tabs are a mess, mail messages are getting lost). I'm considering going back to online Gmail, but I also liked how Apple mail played nice with the iphone (since there's no Google GMAIL app for the iphone). So, let me know how you access your Gmail!
Apple on Monday announced to users of its iWork.com public beta that new features have been added to the Web-based service, including the ability to play Keynote presentations online, as well as new options for public sharing and private online storage.The details came in an "important service message" sent to users by Apple on Monday. The changes require users run the latest version of iWork, 9.0.5, released last week.
How do I use another browser besides Safari? I have not been able to access my online bank account and the bank tells me that it is a Safari issue that the Mac people have been working on. I recently upgraded to Lion.
I can connect to the itunes store and do all the normal functions. However, if I try to buy a song (after I enter my email and password), it says couldnt connect, session timed out. If i try to buy from my iphone
I need to disable any external device like hdd usb or hdd firewire and usb key as well. Is there a way to do it in osx lion server ? I've heard that deleting some extension could do that job but which one ?
Info:Mac mini, Mac OS X (10.7.4), LION SERVER 10.7.4
when on youtube etc my white macbook (2.0Ghz Nvidia graphics) video will start to stop/skip/stutter.basically every 5 minutes or so the video will skipa second or half second and continue playing for a minute or so then do it again.I've a solid 7 -8 Mb connection, my macbook temp is floating around 60 when watching video, right now it's 49.
I was looking at this HD: [URL]. Could someone please summarize for me what is a "Dual-drive Storage System with RAID?" I have some ideas of what it is... it involves mirroring, and holding two copies of data to make sure one doesn't lose data, correct? This is a 4 TB drive... what if I want 4 TBs worth of storage and not two copies of 2 TBs worth of storage? Am I allowed to turn mirroring off and get a straightforward 4 TBs worth of storage? Please feel free to throw in any quick facts about RAID you may want to.
Can anyone suggest which would be my best option for external backup? Would a RAID setup be good? I have two exactly the same hard drives laying around collecting dust, and would like to put them to use for an iMac. Could someone recommend a good external enclosure for these two? Which would be better - FireWire or USB2.0? I'm also interested in mirroring since I'd store important data on them, and want both drives to have a copy of each. Is there a disadvantage to that in terms of system's performance?
I thought I would share a cool realization. I am now eligible for any iPhone upgrades and most likely will be getting the new one coming out this summer - whatever it may be. I realized today that most likely it will have 64GB of storage - the exact same size as my Macbook Air - I think it is so wild my future phone/pocket computer will have the exact same storage capacity as my main laptop. I could potentially mirror everything on my Mac that is on my iPhone in the future.
I will be starting my own business soon, providing various IT aspects for the SME market (up to 100 employees) anything ranging from technical support, to SEO and basic web design / development, including branding. Just wondering what tools you use for your business and how you are getting on with them, could be apple apps or online tools. Normally, I am a Windows guy for "business" but only because I use MS for servers and so on.
This is what I have so far; Freshbooks for accounting Basecamp for project management Evernote for receipts/ideas/snips of text Drop box for backup / online storage of documents Quicksilver Skype

I'm currently looking into online backup solutons for my macbook. I intend to keep backups of all my photo's and home movies.
I've looked into and trialed the following
Mozy - The upload to the web feature worked fine, but when i tried to restore a few files it took ages. It took nearly 4 hours to download a 700mb file which had uploaded in less than 10 minutes. My broadband is cable and is 10mb so i am able to achieve a download speed of around 1mb's
JungleDisk - I really really wanted to try this as the pricing was great and the service looked fantastic. However, seeing as i'm in the UK and don't have a credit card i am unable to persue this any further. FOr some reason Amazon S3 don't accept visa debit cards.
Dropbox - I love this service, however I fully understand that this is a syncing service and not a backup service. If i was able to only upload documents and not have them automatically download to my other machine's or work machine then that would be great.
Since today, I cant login with any online messenger out there. I tried the whole lot, about 10 or so. They al can't seem to make a connection with the internet. Internet seems to be working fine though, since transmission, limewire and firefox are all up and running.
I'm currently using eBuddy for the time being, but I'd really like a solution for my problem. I've deleted some preference files, but this didn't change anything.
P.S.: If you were to spot some faults/incorrections in this post, please notify, I'm Dutch and would love to improve my language skills.
So I am trying to download a video, which is online only and I was wondering if there is any way to do that? I have a slow internet and it would be nice to have it on my computer so I can watch it whenever i want it. Here is the link, for other videos you have to pay so I am guessing they disabled any sort of ways that let people to download them but maybe there is a software that would let me download this videos. Does anyone know of such things?
I watch Tekzilla - a podcast at revision3.com and Systm - also by them, and they do a lot of tech shows on HDTV and getting the most out of your HDTV.
Recently one of them (Systm i think) did a show about calibrating your HDTV. They used a THX menu from a Pixar DVD to run through the optimization of their TV for Brightness, Color, Tint, Sharpness, etc.
I"ve been looking for something that I can use from a Website, or a piece of Software that will help me do this with my PC or Mac hooked up through the HDMI on the back of my HDTV.
I have an iMac 17" G5 1.6 intel with 2 Gb of RAM. I can watch videos with no problem unless I try to watch one online such as Youtube or something like a video on Fox news. I have a highspeed cable modem hookup through Cox Cable. I have tried switching between the airPort and direct ethernet hookup but is makes no difference. I don't have this problem with my MacBook Pro.
So, I am applying for a job at Staples (low I know, but I'm starting grad school in the fall so hopefully it will get better), but to search their jobs and access their online application you need to you either Internet Explorer or Netscape Navigator....
Not even PCs really use those anymore! Since I have a mac, I do not have access to either of these browsers. I feel like I should boycott applying to Staples just for this.
Is there some sort of free app I can download to make Safari or Firefox be compatible like Explorer? Or do I need to go and borrow a friend's computer?
Is anyone else having this problem? At first I thought it was me, but then my friend says he's getting the same thing. What could the reason for this be, and is there any way to fix it?(ps. I have of course checked to make sure the relevant boxes are ticked in preferences)
