The battery shouldn't drain to zero as it might not be able to charge up again but it sounds more like the charger broke and hasn't been charging it.Leave the charger plugged in for a while to see if it ever lights up. If not, try unscrewing the base and unplugging then plugging in the battery, replacing the base and plugging the charger in again.If you have another charger or can borrow one from a co-worker or friend, try that to see if it's the charger.If nothing helps,...
It says here it could be a text file in which case dragging it onto an application like Textedit might show you the contents: http://pcsupport.about.com/od/fileextensions/f/000-file.htm If it's a compressed file, you'd have to decompress it first under Windows or check if an app will open it. The Unarchiver is a useful app for decompressing files: http://unarchiver.c3.cx You can run Windows on the Mac using a virtual machine like VMWare, Parallels or Virtual Box and...
That log didn't have any crash details in it. What was the name of that log file?Try another with a date close to when it crashed. Given that it happened while you were restoring the device, it seems more like some kind of hardware fault and would need Apple to look at it.I would try doing another factory reset using the method here:http://support.apple.com/en-us/HT201263
It's understandable when you think about being on the receiving end of it. Customers make up ridiculous things to make their complaint seem more important. One of the reviews of Yosemite has statements about things crashing every 15 minutes because they didn't like it, iOS 7 users were going on about motion sickness to try and get iOS 6 back, people use their caps lock to emphasise things. If support staff had to engage with every person and every issue from millions of...
The old operating systems were nowhere near as stable as OS X. They didn't even have protected memory. Don't you remember the bomb messages?When a program went down, it very often meant the whole system went down. Crashes would freeze up the display redraw so windows would trail when dragged around. Whenever you installed a system extension you'd have to reboot. OS X changed this with dynamically loading/unloading kernel extensions. You could break your whole system by...
Other apps have been affected by a variety of GPU glitches. They crop up at very random times and have affected FCPX:https://forums.creativecow.net/thread/344/19313https://discussions.apple.com/thread/4683654?start=0&tstart=0People have run through projects without any problems and then on export, the glitches show up and they could be close to a deadline with no backup solution like disabling hardware acceleration. It's probably not a widespread problem because of how few...
If they make back the money they spent on Beats with the headphones, they got Iovine and Dre and a streaming service for free. Iovine wanted to plug Apple's music hole:http://www.macrumors.com/2014/12/03/jimmy-iovine-on-apple-acquisition/He obviously has contacts, can get exclusives from top artists and knows the music scene. He'll add value to iTunes and the headphones will pay for it. Beats won't rest at its current iteration, they'll update and improve the products over...
Someone had similar problems with the 2012 Mac Pro and the Radeon 290x, rebooting to Windows got rid of the glitches: http://forum.blackmagicdesign.com/viewtopic.php?f=21&t=30542 "the 290x does the picture glitches as well in yosemite. So I'm concluding its not an issue with the D700/280x model of cards. The 290 is a different chipset." It could be AMD's GPUs or the drivers. Rendering UHD files on both GPUs will max them out. Motion's GPU exports have had glitches in...
Then why is there any concern about it at all? Not all reports are focusing on privacy but quite a few are:http://www.dailymail.co.uk/sciencetech/article-2890086/Apple-Pay-s-UK-launch-delayed-privacy-concerns-Major-bank-said-uncomfortable-sharing-data.htmlThe source mentioned data collection but that was mentioned as a possibility with the access Apple asked for.
It's one bank, reports are pluralizing it and saying 'at least one bank' for obvious reasons. The quote they use is about the data Apple will be allowed to access, which would be why it's described as a beachhead - a potential for an attack but not an indication of a desire to do that nor invade privacy.So the bank has information collected about customers already and Apple's terms must be saying to allow them some access to it. This is being packaged up as a concern over...
