Have you had any problems with BetterTouch like the cursor anchored to a file or a window? I use BetterTouch and that happens periodically and the only way I can unanchored it is to restart.  I'm not positive that it's BetterTouch that causes it, but I can't think of anything else. I posted that question but AI members haven't responded as yet. 
I'm not sure how to word this, but since there would be fewer MBP ports, what, in your opinion, would a hub look like?  How many ports should it have?  I assume different sized hubs will be marketed, but what basic ports would be needed for legacy peripherals. OR will it be necessary to replace older peripherals.
I never have to change batteries in the wireless Logitech keyboard. The MTP batteries had to be replaced every three weeks. It wasn't the cost but the inconvenience of changing them right in the middle of working on something. That's what I'm doing now with Eneloop rechargeables.  I stopped using the Magic Mouse. An MTP is much more utilitarian and saves my wrist. Since it doesn't have to be moved like a mouse, I'd prefer a wired MTP and not have to be concerned about...
Mea culpa. The Mobee MTP battery pack is $30.  http://www.mobeetechnology.com/the-power-bar.html
I'd like to trade in my wireless MTPs for wired ones.  How about it, Apple? Market wired or rechargable MTPs.     Logitech has one:    http://gadgetmac.com/reviews/logitech-rechargeable-bluetooth-trackpad-t651-review.html   Also, Mobee makes a rechargeable battery pack that replaces MTP batteries.   http://www.mobeetechnology.com/the-magic-bar.html    I used a Mobee that lasted about two years  before the battery wouldn't recharge anymore. It probably would have...
Has anyone used DiskWarrior?  Does it do what it claims to do? What is your opinion of it? Is there an app better for repairing drives?  Thanks. 
Has any AI member used Avast anit-virus software?  Being leery of possible Trojan horses and such, I've hesitated to download this app.  If you've used it, what is your opinion of it?   http://www.amazon.com/Avast-Free-Antivirus-2015-Download/product-reviews/B00H9A60O4   I've gotten several emails with this notation: This email has been checked for viruses by Avast antivirus software.  > > www.avast.com
At times in files, the cursor, on my iMac w/Yosemite, becomes anchored. It highlights from that spot to wherever it’s moved and won’t let go. It also changes the size of the window it’s in whenever it’s moved.  I have to jump through hoops to get it ‘unstuck’. Sometimes, I can 'backtrack' the highlight to its origin and delete the letter it's anchored to. But that doesn't always work and/or additional typing gets deleted.   I’ve tried googling the problem but get answers...
I wear reading glasses; however, I can read documents on the 4K TV eight feet away without glasses whereas I have to be about two feet from the mid-2015 iMac monitor in double view. I don’t think I’d want to use the TV for documents though. It would seem a bit awkward, but maybe after getting used to it, it wouldn’t matter. However, you can sit closer to a 4K UHD due to the (55" TV) pixel density - 80.11 PPI. On the order of 4000 pixels - about twice that of an HD at...
FWIW: I realize that you’re looking for a 4K monitor in the $600 - $800 range, so I’m not suggesting buying what I did. On Black Friday, I bought a new mid 2014 iMac and the Samsung TV (below) on sale at Best Buy for $900 apiece. The TV normally sells for @ $1300. The iMac has a beautiful screen; however, using an adaptor and an HDMI cable, I connected the iMac to the TV and found I have a gorgeous 55” 4K monitor that puts the iMac monitor to shame. A TV / monitor in...
