    MacBook Macbook 2016

    Anyone have it? I am considering snagging one but not sure if I should go base 1.1 ghz or upgrade to the 1.2 ghz. I don't need the extra storage the 1.2 provides so my thought process is if the very minor bump in processor really worth the extra $300? I am going to say / guess that it's not...

    Does the iPhone need more than 1GB RAM?

    I get the whole RAM argument. Some same the more RAM used by the system the better and I agree to a point. However, the iPhone skimps in this regard and only offers 1GB. This is after a fresh reboot of the iPhone 6. Does the iPhone need more RAM?

    Does your phone have more storage than your computer?

    I was thinking (which is dangerous) that with the 128GB iPhone 6 and 6 Plus that there are probably people whose phone has more storage than their PC.. What say you 128GB iPhone 6 and 6 Plus owners. Does your phone have more storage than your PC or Mac SSD has?

    Yosemite bugs and issues

    I have a mid 2014 Macbook Pro Retina. I updated to Yosemite on release day and just about everything is fine and I love the new UI. However, I have a few pesky bugs! I've factory reset twice via a USB restore stick and that did not solve the issues. Thinking my USB restore stick might be...

    How To: Merge 2 Apple ID's (sort of, kind of, almost) using Family Share

    I have an issue that many other users have. We have 2 Apple ID's.. In my case one is tied to my store account and one is tied to my email / iCloud account. There is no way to merge these and it appears as though Apple has no plans that allow us to do so.. It should be a simple solution on...

    2 Apple ID's (still no way to merge)

    I have had this problem for years! I have 2 Apple ID's and really wish there was a way to merge them. My store Apple ID has a old gmail.com address that was hacked and closed years ago so I no longer have access to that email which is really not an issue. All my app store purchases are under...

    My Apple TV says it has an update but it keeps timing out while trying to download it.. I assume Apple servers are getting hammered right now by iOS updates.. Anyone know what this update is all about? Edit: The update went through.. Nothing new and nothing has changed. Must just be a minor...

    VPN: How to with Apple TV

    Apple TV is great but if you have a 3rd Generation you are limited in what it can and can't do. Yes you can AirPlay many, many things from an iDevice but there are times and reasons why you may want to use a VPN. It's not a free solution but its cheap enough to where the cost should not be an...

    Sad to see my LTE mini go!

    I have had my LTE mini since it was released (it was a pre-order) but a friend of mine wants to trade her iPad 4 for it and I said yes. I will still have my WiFi only mini and wonder if I will really miss the LTE on the mini I am trading. I honestly only used the LTE on it maybe 3 or 4 times...
