Applications :: ITunes To Begin Offering TV Rentals?

Apr 15, 2010

I just finished a survey on iTunes usage by the NPD Group, and on one the selections it told me if I had rented a TV episode or season? I took a screenshot just in case. See the last two selections.This could be a part of a plan to take people away from Netflix because they too have TV seasons for rent.

Applications :: ITunes TV Show Rentals Available

Mar 20, 2009

I do think this would be a good idea. I'd rather rent a TV episode - watch it once - and then have it go - as opposed to a movie. Do you think there's any way Apple would, and could, ever implement this?

Applications :: ITunes Movie Rentals / Front Row?

Feb 24, 2008

Can they be played this way? We know that Front Row can access iTunes because it shows the Top 10 Movies in the Movies Section, but when I rented a movie last night, it didn't show up there. Is something wrong? If not, why hasn't Apple came out with a fix for it.

Software :: Where To Find ITunes Rentals

Feb 9, 2008

I have rented two movies, but either the selection of movies is tiny, or I am looking in the wrong place. I thought all the studios were on board and that thousands of movies would be available. I saw a few, and unless I was lookin in the wrong place, I wasn't too impressed by the selection.

Can't Watch Rentals And Purchases From ITunes

May 17, 2012

bought a TV show and rented a couple of movies in iTunes to watch during flight on my macbook air like at least 30 times before. However, every time I click on play I get the following "this movie can be played only on displays that support HDCP." i am livid. What is going on? My rental 24 hour limit kicked in without me being able to watch a single microsecond of the movie. This is not the first time that I have difficulties getting something what I paid for in Itunes. This is very delicate for a company that prides itself of being high-quality.

Software :: Microsoft Offering Office 2008 Free Trial For Mac Users

Apr 14, 2009

Microsoft's Mac Business Unit this week is making available to Mac users a "fully functional, no strings attached" free trial of Office 2008 so that prospective buyers and users of previous versions can 'kick the tires' on new suite before plunking down the cash for a permanent copy. The 545 megabyte download is available after a quick registration over at the Redmond-based company's MacTopia website. The registration is required to generate an trial product key that will expire 30 days thereafter. Although Office 2008 for Mac made its debut over a year ago, this is the first time Microsoft has offered customers the option of trying the software before they buy it. The trial copy will run side-by-side with earlier versions of Office and includes a year's worth of maintenance and security improvements.

"The MacBU is aware that a number of customers have wanted to try Office 2008 for Mac before purchasing, and they have been working to make this available in tandem with updates to 2008," a representative for the software giant told AppleInsider.*"Today customers can now check out Office 2008 with the fixes and performance enhancements that have been made since launch." Once the 30-day product key expires, users will have the choice to either purchase a copy of the suite from an Apple authorized reseller or buy a product key from Mactopia online and be up and running without reinstalling. Of course, Microsoft fragments the office suite into various versions like it does its Windows operating system. A "Home and Student Edition" costs $149.95, the standard version is priced at $399.95, and the Special Media Edition fetches 499.95. However, has these same editions listed for $111.99, $240.00, and $224.95, respectively. For a breakdown of what's included in each edition, see this article. Meanwhile, readers interested in familiarizing themselves with Office 2008 and the history of Office without downloading the software may want to check out AppleInsider's six-part series: Road to Mac Office 2008.[ View this article at ]

Mac Pro :: Does Spotlight Begin To Re-index Drives After Each Startup?

Jun 2, 2012

Three days ago I was browsing the web when my cursor evidently brushed over an ad for MacKeeper. In a few seconds MacKeeper had downloaded itself without asking and taken over Safari. Since I don't like thuggish behavior in people or in software, as soon as I regained control of Safari I moved MacKeeper to the trash and did a "Secure Empty Trash." I then aimed Intego's Virus Barrier at the Downloads folder and it found nothing questionable. I checked out various webpages where people describe how to rid your computer of MacKeeper if you've installed it - - I didn't install it, but I checked in all the recommended places and found nothing visible. However whether it is a coincidence or there is a causal relation immediately after this incident, Spotlight began to re-index my two internal hard drives - - estimating first that it would take 3 days, then 7 days to index them. I wrote about this on another thread and received the following advice: 

"Spotlight's probably in a wobble. A few things you could do: 

1. Tell Spotlight to start again. Open Terminal (Applications > Utilities > and copy/paste this command: sudo mdutil -E /

Press 'return'. You'll be asked for your password, which will not echo when you type it, so type carefully. 

Give Spotlight a few minutes then check on its progress, does it look like it's going to complete in a reasonable amount of time? If the problem persists 

2. Restart your Mac in Safe mode and log in to your account.

This'll take a while. When it's finished, immediately restart and log in normally and check on Spotlight again." 

I performed the first step. After a few minutes Spotlight estimated that it would complete indexing in 20 minutes. Over the next few hours it continued to increase its estimates to an ever larger number of hours. 

Then I performed the second step. After completing it Spotlight's estimate was that it would take several days. 

Eventually I performed the first step again and the same sequence of increasing estimates occurred.  

I left the computer on overnight and by morning Spotlight estimated it would take 35 hours to complete indexing of my drives. 

Later on I turned the computer off. When I started it up again Spotlight had started once again to re-index my drives and now estimates it will take 5 days.  

None of this behavior had occurred before the mishap with MacKeeper. Since I have a recent clone of the startup drive that was made before this incident it seems possible that I could zero out my internal startup drive after saving any files that have changed to a DVD, use Virus Barrier to check if there is anything questionable present in the folder in which they are located and then clone the data from the backup drive back to the newly formatted internal hard drive. However I would rather not have to do this, so I would be most grateful for any less extreme suggestions.

I've been using FCPX for a few years and recently noticed that updates were not showing as being available. So I deleted the app and tried to download it.

I have tried deleting the app multiple times but all I get is an error whenever I try and download it.

MacBook Pro :: Won't Stay Asleep - Hard Drive Begin Spinning Again After Some Time

Dec 10, 2014

I am desperate and really need an answer to this question. I have tried everything and had no luck. 

I have a MacBook Pro (13-inch, Mid 2012) running Yosemite. Whenever I close the screen, it will fall asleep like it normally does. However, the external light will only pulse once (instead of continuously), and then I can hear the hard drive begin spinning again. The external light then stays at a constant, but the screen does not light back up. 

It's like the computer falls asleep, but then only the hard drive wakes up, and stays woken up. This fact causes my Macbook to eventually use up whatever battery power it has and get warm in my backpack. The only thing I can do to preserve battery power is to shut down the whole computer and boot it up every time I need it. 

Also, on a side note. My computer seems to run much slower than it did on it's native Mavericks.

Applications :: Time Machine Transfer Of ITunes Error Between ITunes Versions?

Feb 21, 2009

I am a new mac user (total convert--am on my second iMac in a month and am about to buy a macbook), and am having trouble with my itunes service. My first 24" iMac developed a clicking HDD, so I was lucky enough to be able to bring it back to the shop for a replacement iMac. I made a time machine backup of the first Mac and copied directly to the second one (which was come I haven't been using macs prior to now? I've lost dozens of backups on PC). The only issue I've had is with iTunes--I keep getting an error that the iTunes library is newer than the version of iTunes on the computer. Is there anyway to fix this without losing my entire library of songs? I did make up a physical copy of the iTunes folder on my first Mac, just in case, so I assume that I could delete iTunes and reinstall a fresh copy, update it, and then copy the iTunes folder over to the new version. But this is a Windows approach to the issue and there is probably a simpler way of fixing this. Alternately, I could do the same but sync my iPod and copy everything to my library that way.

Applications :: Unable To Empty ITunes Store List / Delete Unwanted Downloads From The ITunes

Nov 11, 2009

I have a batch of HD video downloads in my iTunes Store queue that I can't delete. Before it was annoying, having to purchase both the regular video and HD video, then delete the unwanted HD download from my queue list, but now it's a problem. I can't empty the unwanted HD downloads, and for me to download them all will tie up my connection for a week or more.

Applications :: ITunes 10 Back To ITunes 9 - How To Recover Lost Library?

I loved the Genius Recommendation Panel on iTunes 9 and found lots of new songs and artists when using itI cannot believe Apple removed it from iTunes 10 and replaced it with a social networking site with the awful title "Ping"
So I replaced iTunes 9 last night, only to find that it wouldn't accept my iTunes library. I managed to reload the songs, but I have lost all my playlists, star ratings, play counts, etc. Its all gone.

Applications :: Transferring ITunes From Laptop / Backuping Itunes And Restoring It?

Apr 7, 2009

Brand new convert to Mac here: After receiving an iPod Touch from my boss when he upgraded to an iPhone, I have fallen in love with the Mac hardware and OS. I just got a new macbook and would like to transfer my iTunes from my old PC laptop. I am also a neophyte to iTunes so forgive me if there is a very simplistic answer to this issue.

The physical music is located on my external drive connected to the PC with the iTunes original music locations pointed to it . My specific question is, if I backup iTunes, restore to the Mac, plug in the external drive to the Mac, will it work seamlessly? I'm not sure if the existing iTunes music locations will re-synch since the music locations on the laptop iTunes are mapped to the "G:" drive. If it won't work that way, what do you recommend as the best way to go about it? I want to make sure I don't waste as much time as when I initially set up my iTunes/iPod touch (simply stuck in "PC" mindset).

Applications :: Really Random ITunes Bug / Itunes Window Moves Down A Bit Leaving Gap At Top

May 20, 2009

I think I found a bug in iTunes, because I can find no other explanation. Every once in a while (like once every three weeks) my iTunes window goes down. By this I mean everytime i click a different playlist, view, category, iTunes store, the window moves down a bit leaving this gap at the top. It randomly comes and goes, and its not really a big deal, but it does get really annoying. Is anyone else getting this? and no, im not just moving the window down

Heres a before and after:
