PowerPC :: Intel Versus G5 With Universal Binary Applications

Nov 28, 2007

Do Universal Binary applications (Adobe Illustrator CS3) run quicker on Intel than on Power PC if the machines were similary spec'd maybe due to better architecture etc. E.g. a "G5 PPC 2.0Ghz" vs "iMac C2D 2.0ghz". I'm looking for real world application use rather than benchmarks. Wondering if it is better to go second user on a G5 or splash out on a new iMac/MacPro?

App Store :: Apps Are Missing And All Listed As Hidden But Can't Unhide The Apps

May 30, 2012

Under purchases I'm getting "you have not purchased any apps." Under Itunes in the Cloud all my apps are listed as hidden but when I click "view hidden purchases" it says I do not have any hidden purchases. I have three Macs and all are experiencing the same issue so this is an account problem and not a computer software problem. The funny thing is that it's still recognizing updates.Yes, I've tried signing out and back in to view my account with no luck. The only thing I did weird last night was I disabled the Itunes store and automatic downloading on one computer. This morning when I had the above problem I put all the settings back.

Applications :: How To Auto-hide Apps When Switching Between Apps

Oct 12, 2009

I'm looking for a way to keep distraction to a minimum when working. I'd like to have an app (or a setting) that enables me to automatically hide any apps that I switch out of. Are there any apps or hidden settings within OS X out there that would solve this issue for me? I know about Spirited Away, but it doesn't work for me and hasn't been updated in a while.

I'm running OS X v10.6.1.

IMac :: Lost My Apps Folder On Dock But Apps Are There?

Dec 18, 2009

I have a new 21.5" iMac and have been playing around with everything. When I started two weeks ago I had an Apps folder with the Apps logo on the dock to the right of the dotted separation. All the applications are there lined up with the first application showing but for my consternation I cannot put the Applications in there folder like it was when I started out two weeks ago. This is the Snow Leopard OS.

OS X :: Apps Installed Via MacPort Conflict With Builtin Apps?

For some reason I have to install some applications via MacPort, such like ImageMagick, however, I saw other applications(e.g. vi, vim, etc) also available via macport, there are already built-in programs like vi, if I install something via macport which are already built-in, will there be any problem or the newer ones just overwrite old ones?

ITunes :: Transfer New Apps From Iphone Without Replacing Apps Don't Want?

May 10, 2012

When you sync your iPhone you sometimes get the following message: 

Itunes has found purchased items on the iphone thats arenot present in your itunes library. 

There are two reasons for this:

1. I have deleted apps in iTunes that I don't want, but not on the iPhone. I don't want to transfer the apps back to iTunes because I want them gone.

2. I have bought apps on the iPhone that I do want to keep. I want these transferred to iTunes. 

So if I have both types 1 and 2 then there is no good answer. Preferably iTunes should offer to sync and choose which apps to transfer and what not to transfer. Is there a way to change this behaviour? By the time I sync I don't know what I've done so I'm usually not sure how to answer the question. Sometimes I like to bulk delete apps in iTunes--it is easier than doing it on the iPhone.

IMac :: Performance Of The Quads Compared To C2Ds

Nov 25, 2009

I know this have been discussed like many times but I've still some queries. Currently I'm using a Early 08 iMac with a 2.8GHz processor with 8800GS graphics for stuff like handbrake, aperture, CS3 & some Final cut express. I'm experiencing some lag in aperture when working with raw from my 500D (ard 2 - 3secs). My parents are also looking for a new computer as their 7 year old Celeron has just called it a day. They're looking to take over my current iMac. Hence looking at the new iMacs which I ordered earlier this week an i7 (not even shipped yet).

Just like to ask if the i7 will be substantially faster for my day to day usages or it it just ok get the base 27" with an upgraded graphics processor? BTW, how much faster is 4850 compared to my 8800GS?

Intel Mac :: Use SSD For Apps And HDD For Documents?

Apr 10, 2012

I just installed (myself) an Intel 120GB SSD into my 2011 iMac (3.4Ghz Quad-Core, 16GB RAM, 1TB HDD). I kept the HDD. 

I run Logic Pro 9 and have around 200GB of additional sample plugins (VSL Solo Strings, Ivory Grand Pianos, Superior Drummer, etc..) and

I want to know how I can successfully transfer the Apps (Logic, Sibelius, Pages, iTunes, etc...) onto my new SSD while keeping the plugins on my HDD and using them simultaneously.  

p.s. since some of the apps require registration, I cannot simply drag them to my SSD from the HDD and expect them to work. I get an error.

Intel Mac :: It Shutting Down When I Try To Use Any Apps

May 24, 2012

My iMac is shutting down whenever I try to open an app. Everything was going fine, then I tried to open Skype and was forced to shut down the computer using the power button (there was no error message, just this message to shut down using the power button). I restarted it and deleted Skype thinking there was something wrong with the app. Then I tried opening Firefox and it asked me to shut down again. And it does it whenever I try to oPen any app.

Intel Mac :: Apps Crashing After Fresh OS X Installation?

May 6, 2012

I bought a second hand iMac, formatted the HD and installed Snow Leopard 10.6.8 Fixed disk permission, did all the software upgrades, fixed once more permission and verified startup disk... and everything seemed to work fine.

After using it for an hour I've started noticing strange crashes: 

-When I use Software Update and I click Show Details, the app crashes every time... but if i click the Install button it works fine.

-The computer is connected to the internet but Safari is not showing anything. It stays white. I've installed Firefox and it works fine. Safari not loading anything.

-App Store is crashing upon launch, every time 

Checked the hardware using the Apple disk and it's all in order. Re-fixed Disk Permissions. Re-verified startup disk.
