I'm not sure how it got turned on in the first place, but the voice over feature on my iMac is driving me crazy! It says something everytime I click something on my computer Here are the things I've tried:
1. ReBooting (hoping that it will reset itself somehow).
2. Went through the Voice Over Utility and tried to turn it off, but couldn't figure out how.
3. Someone told me to trash the Voice Over Utility so I did that, but it didn't fix it...
I'm running Mac OSX Tiger on a white intel iMac. Is there any way to turn off the voice over utility?
I want to calibrate my battery once it's fully charged, so then I can discharge it. But whenever I do this, my computer shuts off and "saves the session" with a couple percentage of battery life left, so it NEVER fully drains the battery. Is it possible to turn the saving feature off?
I have always used Firefox, but I am finally getting used to Safari. There are a lot if cool features that Firefox doesn't have. In Firefox, I could start typing my usernames and it would automatically fill it in. How do I get Safari to do this? I don't want Safari to remember my passwords, just the usernames so I don't have to type them each time I log in.
Is there a way to disable the �pinch open and close� feature on a MBP trackpad? I swear, it�s going to put me in therapy. Every time I need to scroll through massive spreadsheets for work, if my fingers separate by even a hair, the trackpad reads it as a pinch, then the document suddenly balloons to massive proportion or shrinks to infinitesimally tiny print. Seems there ought to be a simple way to turn the thing off, but for the life of me, I can�t find it.
In what's become a yearly release, I have officially released the fifth edition of the Apple Enterprise Backup Solutions paper. If you are unfamiliar with the document, it is a free paper that will help you find the right backup solution for your environment, outlining various backup techniques, software solutions and data consolidation solutions. This document has been referenced in numerous webcasts and online publications. If you've read the previous releases, much of this will seem similar. The main update in this paper is a complete review of the PresSTORE 3 solution. You can find a link to the document and its mirror at: [URL]
My wife and I recently purchased our third Mac system (iMac). She is an aspiring photographer. We have our oldest family pictures (most in iphoto) being moved to the IMac from our Mac Mini and also her DSLR photos from our Macbook to the IMac as well. (she uses lightroom/photoshop). The problem we are running into is we have probably about 100GB in photos and I know there are many duplicates. The problem is the pictures are mixed formats (jpeg and raw) and some are the originals and some are edited. I'd like to get some sort of program(s) that could remove duplicates (if there is a dup in JPG and RAW, I'd like to keep the raw) and maybe group (its asking alot, I know) up the edited photos.
This is the 5th macbook pro I have gone through... ALL of the ones at best buy have had some sort of scratch out of the box. However, the one on this one is barley noticeable so I have been dealing with it. However, I just noticed that the very bottom of the trackpad, maybe as much as a quarter of an inch, is unresponsive when you start in that area, but seems to work if you start anywhere else in the trackpad and then go into that area. Anyone else have that issue? Anybody know a remedy? Apple seriously needs to up their quality, every MBP I have had so far has had something wrong with it and I have had this one for two weeks so there is no way they would buy that it came like that.
Didn't see this posted anywhere though I searched around a bit. Looks like iTunes 8.2 lets you see your UDID, IMEI, Build #, ICCID etc., by clicking on the Serial Number/Phone Number/Software Version fields. Don't remember being able to do this in earlier iTunes versions.
Why would you even want it? I never get to listen to entire songs anymore. Is there any way to turn off the feature. I understand why some people would want to save where they left off, from their song, but they should have an option to turn it off.
I just noticed something in iTunes 8. In the Advanced drop down menu, you can now create iPod or iPhone and Apple TV versions of the videos you have in iTunes. However, the only video I can import are already iPod ready.
Check this out. Minimize iTunes using the green button to get the mini-player. Then plug in your iPhone. iTunes 8.1.1 no longer expands and pops to the front of your screen! That's really cool! I noticed this in 8.1.1, but it could have been introduced in 8.1, I don't know.
I haven't noticed this before, but when I went to sync a movie to my iPod, the "syncable" movie are bold and the "unsyncable" ones are greyed out. This saves me some confusion with all the movies I have encoded for AppleTV vs iPod. Running 3.0 beta 2 on iTouch 2G, iTunes 8.1.1
I've finally got hold of a 27" iMac that works, so now comes the process of transferring over all my media. I want to use my iMac as a media hub of sorts, and so have been transferring all of my music from my MacBook using the import feature on iTunes 9's Home Sharing. I just want to know if Apple places any restrictions on the files so, for instance, if I de-authorise my Macbook and/or delete the media files from it, will the music still be accessible as normal from the iMac (since it's been coped over and is stored locally), or will it create some kind of link to the original files and shout at me if they disappear? Or would I be safer using a traditional method of transferring the data?
What was the first version of iTunes that can plat AAC radio streams? I use a very old G4 500 MHz powermac to listen to iTunes streaming internet radio, but more and more stations are switching to AAC streams, which the old 10.3 compatible version of iTunes doesn't support and won't play them. The current version of itunes' minimum system requirements is a 1 Ghz G4, so I can't use the current version of iTunes. If I upgrade this machine to OS 10.4, will I be able to install a version of iTunes that plays AAC radio streams?
I've never even turned on the genius feature in iTunes, because I was put off by the link to the store. I have no intention whatsoever of buying anything from the iTunes store, though I do have an account cause I had to buy something else online. Here's my strong suspicion about Genius - that it's really there just to sell you crappy tracks from iTunes. And I have no use for that noise.
But, I like to keep an open mind. What if I'm wrong, and what if it's actually a cool feature? I remember not being sure about the shuffle function, since I like to listen to albums, so for the longest time I didn't use it. But one day I gave it a go, and what do you know. I liked it, for the most part! Here's one additional complication - I got like 50,000 songs in my library and I listen to all kinds of genres. Tell me about Genius - how do you use it?
I have Genius playlists on my ipad2 that I do not want. I would like to get rid of all Genius suggestions and have viewed many suggestions; one being to go to the store tab and click turn off genius. This option is not available it only gives the option 'Update Genius'. I recently joined itunes Match and this seems to automatically think that you want to have Genius

I listen to iiTunes a lot while surfing the web. It's very annoying when I come across a website which has it's own music and it suddenly overlaps the music I'm playing on iTunes. Is there anyway to turn off the sound from all other applications while using iTunes?
My ipod is jailbroken but i tried to restore it so it wouldn't anymore but now it wont turn oon, it shows the apple logo for like 30 seconds then the green pois0n logo for like a minute then it turns off and starts again.
Every time i turn on itunes it asks for my internet username and password. If I cancel the request it pops up again after a few seconds and will continue to pop up, even if I put my name and password in.
I don't want to use the internet or I don't have a connection. How can I turn this off?
I got a new Imac last week and updated to Mavericks 10.9.3 and updated iTunes 11.2.2. When I select all podcasts to increase the volume it takes a really long time and crashes saying there isn't enough memory. Is there any way to fix this?
Also, if I try to go into Command + R the repair mode it looks like it changed to a reinstallation mode which is what I don't want. Is there another way to run disk permissions or disk repair in Mavericks?

There are several improvements to iTunes that would make it more usable on laptops (i.e. recover useful screen real estate.)
1) allow me to turn off the giant rotating billboard ads when accessing the iTunes store.
2) allow me to size or get rid of icons in the sidebar. 2b) allow me to make the sidebar much narrower than the current limits.
3) reduce or allow me to reduce line spacing in sidebar and all windows (i.e. I want to see more playlists (in sidebar) and more songs (in main window) without scrolling).
Just now switching to iTunes 11. I have to say the UI is a step backwards. I notice there are folks online that offer iTunes skins (AKA themes[sic]). I cannot find any info on how to create those on a Mac.
