MacBook Air :: Using Internet Stick For Remote Travel?

May 17, 2012

I'll be traveling to remote tribal Ethiopia and would like to use the Cloud for frequent uploading of photos and journal, so that if my laptop or iPad gets stolen, most of my stuff will be safe on my desktop at home. I'm looking for any suggestions that might broadly relate to this. I was planning to get an iPad, but I'd have to lug around a keyboard to use with it (I'm a fast typist on a real keyboard); worst of all, I wouldn't be able to download photos from my (regular style) camera onto the iPad to get them to the Cloud. Apple's "Camera Connection Kit" doesn't seem to be the answer, by the looks of the many bad reviews.  

So then I started leaning toward the small MacBookAir, which would be only slightly large than the iPad, but have it's own real keyboard AND have all the familiar versions of mail and other apps on it. Plus I could download my camera pics and get them to the Cloud via the laptop. BUT the problem with that is that the laptop won't connect cellularly for uploading to the Cloud—and WiFi won't be nearly as accessible as cellular in these remote areas.

MacBook Air :: Memory Stick Inserted Does Not Appear Under Remote Devices In Finder

Aug 22, 2014

I have a MacBook Air. I inserted  memory stick , but it did not appear in the Finders list for Devices / Remote Discs. When I removed it, a box opened telling me I did so incorrectly. I know how to eject remote devices, but if it was not listed, I could not do it properly. Why did it not appear under Remote Discs?

Mac Mini :: Does The Travel Kit Work With It

Jul 6, 2012

I wanted to know if the Travel Kit that Apple sells would be compatible with the Mac Mini. I am thinking of buying one in the US for money's sake, and I live in the UK. I just wanted to make sure that if I did get it, it wouldn't be a waste of money.

I recently had a Onelan Digital Signage system installed which I can access whilst I'm at school via an IP address through a browser to edit and update contents, however this does not work outside the school.

OS X :: Connect To Home Network From Remote Internet Connection?

Mar 19, 2007

I have a non-fixed IP with BT for my home network and am curious if I can set things up to access my home machines and volumes when I am abroad. A step-by-step guide to this process would, no doubt, be useful to a number of MR members. If there is a kind soul who could post an idiot-proof set of instructions that would be great, and would perhaps be put up as a user guide here at MR.

MacBook :: Internet Says Have Internet But Wont Connect - Cannot Open System Preferences Or Internet Preferences

May 10, 2009

I have a macbook a little over a year old. It's my first mac and I love it. Yesterday though it started acting really weird. I first noticed that it was really, really hot and the fan was running. I turned it off and back on and here's what I found out:

Applications are being deleted from macbook. ITunes, IPhoto, iChat have clear question marks over icon. There are 8-10 blank spaces in the Applications folder where applications have been deleted. However, data is still there (ex. pictures still there, but no iPhoto).

Internet= Says I have internet but wont connect.

Cannot open " System Preferences" or "Internet Preferences".

If connected to home computer will connect to internet and allowed to open internet preferences but still no system preferences.

If shut down....takes a while to come back on and starts up 2-3 times.

Also "Preview" is gone. Now " ColorSync Utility" opens.

Is this my hard drive dying? I'm tech challenged, so any help would be greatly appreciated.

MacBook Air :: Using Replaceable SDD Stick?

Jan 3, 2011

I have been doing some research on the MacBook Air's Flash Storage and according to the repair and servicing manual for the MacBook Air (see attached files) there is an actual Memory Sick that is in the MacBook Air and is not soldered to the Main Logic Board. This part of the service manual tells you how to remove the memory stick and replace it. Everyone clams it is "non-user replaceable" but this guide suggests that is it possible, if one was able to purchase one of the Memory Sicks.

Hardware :: Looking For A USB TV Stick For My MacBook

Mar 24, 2009

I am looking for a USB TV-stick for my MacBook. I will be using it to watch Freeview (Digital TV in the UK).

The things I'm looking for is that the stick works well with Macs, the software is easy to use, and some recording/scheduling function.

The choices I found so far are:

Elgato EyeTV for DTT

Equinux TubeStick

Miglia TVMini2

The current champ seems to be the Elgato, but pricey at nearly �50. Any ideas about the other two?

I am also open to suggestions to other USB TV-sticks that work well with Macs.

MacBook Air :: Stick With Plans To Purchase MBA Rev C

Jun 8, 2009

I knew I should wait to see what Rev C looked like before buying an MBA, but I am disappointed that we didn't get 4GB RAM or a larger SSD. So now I'm strongly considering a new 13" MBP with 256GB SSD (or maybe 500GB SATA if it isn't too sluggish) with 4GB RAM. I know it's a steal, but on the other hand the MBA price cut is pretty tempting. Is anyone else on the fence about which to get? The 13" MBP or MBA? I'm going to college in the fall so portability is a consideration, though either option would be an improvement over my 12" iBook in terms of weight and even thinness.

I have two major concerns with the MBA rev C.:

1) The battery. 3 hours (with the MBA) is probably good enough in most cases, as this is roughly what I get currently with my iBook. However, the MBP has a major advantage with its new battery tech.

2) Hard drive. I know I would not buy a MBA unless it had a SSD in it, but I really don't know if 128GB will be enough for me down the road. It is right now (my HDD space is mostly music and iPhoto video editing for me) but I am thinking that videos from iTunes which I may or may not begin purchasing at some point will eat up space. I would be more comfortable purchasing 250+GB of HDD space in my next computer. I remember in 2004 buying my iBook thinking that 30GB would be plenty. Boy, was I wrong!...................

MacBook Pro :: For MBP 15" - 4gb Ram Stick - Macsales

Jun 15, 2009

I want to upgrade the ram in my 15" with another 4gb stick. It will support a max of 6gb total I just checked

Always buy them from macsales and never been disappointed. Apples memory in the past (the stock chips), have been from Samsung or hynnx(sp?)

My question is - which brand memory does sell for the 4gb sticks of pc3-8500 sodimm?

There's a good deal on micron 4gb sticks on eBay right now and I'm deciding if I should go with it

MacBook :: How Can I Find Out USB Stick Capacity

Aug 25, 2009

I have been given a 256GB USB stick by a friend. It is labelled (falsely) as Sony.

I posted in the Macbook section since my Macbook reads it as actually holding 256GB. Suspecting this is not true (it was purchased for about $50 in China) I would like to know how I can find out it's true capacity.

It is currently holding 47GB and rising...

Applications :: Using Keyboard On MacBook Stick In Excel

Oct 14, 2010

The keyboard sticks while using Excel in MS office 2004. This is a very odd situation. I have a user that when she is working on her computer, the keyboard will stick when she is working in Excel. The keyboard is working as usual when she is in any other apps on the MacBook. The MacBook is running Leopard 10.5.6(?).
I have not come across any other desktops, laptops running Excel or any other OS that have encountered this.

MacBook Pro :: Fast Type Of Memory-stick?

Oct 16, 2008

I've just come across this product at belkin. A 16 GB solid state drive, that flush fits in the express-port of the MBP.

Does this mean, that you can use this as a typical SSD if it is left in the port at all does? Running apps and stuff directly from this? Or is it just a fast type of memory-stick?

MacBook Pro :: Can't Change Permissions Nor Format A USB Stick

Sep 10, 2014

my wife was backing up her photos to our USB stick when suddenly she gets this warning...Just before she had been trying to copy some photos, but the computer didn't allow that, probably some photos were corrupted. I however found those photos on the USB stick, but they are grayed out.I can still open everything else on the stick, and copy from the stick to the desktop, but I can't delete those photos from the stick, trash simply says they can't be deleted. So I decided to simply reformat the stick. However, when I try and erase it, I get this warning

I cannot verify the permissions nor the disk, and I can't repair either, the tabs are simply grayed out. So I decided to check on the permissions on the stick, and suddenly it is in read-only mode, and I can't change it. The lock on the bottom and the droptab won't appear..I tried using google to find a solution and someone pointed out a terminal command, but everything there seemed in order.. I suddenly can only read the Volume, and nothing else, and I can't format nor repair it! I bought this stick very recently, and I want to try everything before I pick up my wallet for a new one! The problem started on my wifes 2012 MacBook Air, and still persists on my late 2011 MacBook Pro. We both have Mavericks.

MacBook Pro (13-inch Late 2011), OS X Mavericks (10.9.4)
