OS X :: Finding Bluetooth Usage Meter?

Nov 10, 2008

I sometimes tether my phone and use it to go online. I'm not on a data plan so I pay 10c per MB and would like to be able to track my usage. Is there some sort of tool or meter that can show my data usage over Bluetooth?

Applications :: Finding Digital Color Meter Alternative?

Oct 11, 2007

I'm looking for an alternative to OS X's DigitalColor Meter under Utilities. I'm looking for a Mac equivalent to ColorPic on Windows [URL]. The drawbacks of the DigitalColor Meter are that I can't copy the HTML color code in one click of a button, and that I can't capture more than one color at a time.

Hardware :: Color Calibrating Monitor Using Color Meter - How To Use Color Meter And Save Color Profile

Feb 20, 2009

before switching to Mac, I used an "X-Rite Eye One Display 2" color meter device with software. You can find them most places like Amazon for about $150. The device should still work, but I can't find any software for it for the Mac. After going to the X-Rite web site, I could find no software at all for the Mac as it is only windows based.

Surely someone out there has used a color meter such as this one as they are quite popular especially for graphics artists that use professional graphic monitors. I am hoping someone can tell me how to use my color meter (USB), what software for Mac Leopard I need and how to save the color profile in the Mac OS.

Mac Pro :: Finding RAM Usage With Snow Leopard

Aug 30, 2009

Ever since installing snow leopard my ram has been acting different. By that I mean, when I'm encoding a blu ray in Handbrake and open Activity Monitor it shows 4GB of RAM used (this is after encoding for over two hours). With leopard it would be around 15gb RAM used after a few hours?

OS X :: Finding Widget To Monitor Network Usage?

Sep 10, 2009

I have just successfully tethered my Nokia 5800 to my MBP and its working great... just one question, is there some way to monitor (maybe like a widget?) how much data i have upped and downloaded?

The reason i ask is because i have a package that allows me 1gig of traffic a month, after which there are some stupid rates *per day* of usage and the speed will be throttled as well.

Feb 1, 2010

I'm looking for an app that monitors my network usage. Currently, I use iStat Pro, but that "forgets" the "Total In" value upon reboot.

I want to monitor my network activity over a month or so, to see what my average usage per month / day is.
Is there any app that keeps the progress?

MacBook Pro :: Finding Memory Usage For 13"

May 24, 2010

So I finally went to the Apple Store and got my very first Mac, a MacBook Pro 13" .

Anyways, I got the baseline configuration that came with 4 GB of memory. Playing with the Activity Monitor, I noticed that after awhile of using the computer, the green "free" memory piece of the pie becomes progressively smaller until it's almost gone. Does that mean I have no more free memory left? But I'm not running a lot of programs at once. Just Safari and iTunes, maybe Pages too.

OS X :: Finding Way To Connect Fake Bluetooth As USB?

Feb 25, 2009

What I wanted to know was if there is some kind of way of connecting a phone to a computer via bluetooth, but make the computer think it is connected via USB? Like, if it could have a virtual USB device which comes from the phone via bluetooth. I know it sounds stupid and useless, but my phone's USB connection is broken. I can iSync via Bluetooth but I would like to use software like Salling Media Sync or doubleTwist to transfer and sync music, but neither have a bluetooth option.

MacBook :: Finding Bluetooth Car Stereo?

Aug 13, 2010

Im sorry if this is a repeated thread, ive searched the internet without finding a clear answer.

I am trying to play music from itunes on my macbook (aluminium model) through my BT head unit in my car.

The way I understand it is that both the macbook and head unit have to be a2dp compatible? which the macbook didnt include as part of the Leopard build.

Im pretty certain the head unit is compatible as i can play music from my blackberry both from the music player and through the internet (youtube streaming).

I have the Pioneer deh-6100bt.

The head unit can 'see' the macbook but when I press connect, all I get is error.

The macbook does not find the head unit at the moment.

Is there something I can download for the macbook to make it work, is there something in the settings that will fix it?

Hardware :: Finding Bluetooth Printer For Leopard?

Dec 17, 2008

I have a new Macbook Pro with a built in bluetooth transceiver. I want to use it to connect a printer. It is a more difficult technique than it seems.

I have gotten a certain way into the problem. I downloaded and installed a CUPS driver for my HP printer from the linux openprinting site. I tested and proved the driver installation by printing over a USB cable.

I am stalled short of actually printing anything over a bluetooth link. The printer adapter is a Belkin, and the Mac recognizes it, and sees through it to the printer. But it cannot print. (The printer image bounces up and down, and the Mac insists the printer is "off line". In fact the printer is on-line.)

In other words, close, but no cigar.

I am happy to switch adapters if there is one more compatible with the Mac bluetooth.

Apple support does not have a list of printers -- nor can they name any printer or bluetooth printer adapter -- that has been demonstrated to work.

Another option might be to disable the built-in bluetooth and use a dongle instead.

Has anyone been down this bluetooth printer path? I would welcome your insights on which adapter and printer actually worked.

MacBook Pro :: Unable To Use Battery Meter

Dec 3, 2010

I started having a weird problem earlier today, with a messed up battery meter. It keeps reading 0%, when I can boot the computer up and use it fine on battery power. Also, when I do plug in the power adapter, the little lights on the side of the laptop that usually light up to indicate time remaining don't do anything. I have no idea what could possibly be wrong here.

OS X :: CPU Meter In Activity Monitor All Wrong?

Dec 11, 2010

According to the screenshot, both Users (green) and System (red) uses 0,19% CPU each. Which means that idle (black) should be around 99%, which it clearly isn't. If I check each process individually, none is using more than 1% of CPU. The screenshot is taken after a reboot and I don't use and third-party background services like VMWare. It's Mac Pro 2.66 Quad (2009).

Applications :: IStat Menus 3.0 Battery Meter Not Accurate?

Sep 17, 2010

I just upgraded to iStat Menus 3.0, and was trying to use the new Battery meter. I was running on Battery when I installed it, and I was comparing it to the Apple meter to make sure it matched, and the % and time remaining was identical. Then I plugged my MacBook in, and iStat said it had like 3:00 hours remaining to a full charge, and the Apple meter said like 1:48. I let it discharge completely thinking that might help, but its still messed up. Right now iStat says 2:03 remaining, and Apple says 1:05. Both of the percentages are at 77%. Anyone else having this problem, or know how to fix it?

MacBook Pro :: Disable The Built-in Bluetooth And Enable A Bluetooth Dongle Instead?

Mar 4, 2008

I have a bluetooth mouse and keyboard that I want to share between a PC and MBP via a DVI/USB KVM switch. I think I can do this by plugging a USB Bluetooth dongle into the KVM's USB input.

If I use the MBP's built-in bluetooth then when I switch from one computer to the other via the KVM, the keyboard and mouse will stay paired with the MBP; but if I disable the built-in hardware then the dongle can provide the bluetooth capability and be switched between the computers.
