Your post is not entirely accurate.     http://betanews.com/2013/10/22/apple-announces-updated-iwork-and-ilife-apps-for-free-although-there-is-a-catch/   "If you’re an existing user, and running Mavericks or iOS 7, you’ll be able to update to the new versions. Not planning on buying new hardware and not an existing user? You’ll still need to pay to get them, I’m afraid."
Anyone familiar with Koingo Software?  Has anyone here used their products? if so, what is your opinion?   I received this, but am wary of such offers.    Koingo Software, Inc. We choose to do what is hard... Hello friends, Well, you've probably heard about our battle with MacUpdate over the past few months. And you know what? We're sick of dealing with it. We're putting and end to this once and for all. We're giving away $2.2...
Mac Help forums sent this to me regarding Kernel Tasks shown on Activity Monitor: http://www.thegeekpub.com/260/what-is-kernel_task-why-is-it-running/
I've gone to other Mac forums trying to find answers and found that other Mavericks users are having similar and other problems.  Some may be addressed in later versions, but I'm not holding my breath. Apple is working on OS 10.10 already. Mavericks may be free, but you get what you pay for.  Unfortunately, I broke my own rule to wait until bugs are ironed out before "upgrading" to a new OS, and I'm paying a price for that idiocy. I've noticed a few other problems: In...
I'm thinking the same thing.  But it's Mavericks that's the lemon as I've not had these problems before.   That being said, Restarting has helped. I can now open and use System Preferences; however, some of the Dialog Boxes are not the same as before, e.g., Displays has changed. It now shows 'Best for display' & 'Scaled' where before it showed only a list of resolutions which did nothing.  It also shows "Show mirroring options in the menu bar when available", now.  Before...
This is so flaky.  Resolution just returned to previous state by itself; however, System Preferences still won't open to show icons.     I can only see it View (list) mode; however, clicking on ANY item doesn't do a damned thing. Going to restart to see what that'll do.
Suddenly, the size of text changed to quite large.  Adjusting display resolution doesn't help. Resolution stays the same no matter what I try to change it to. Any suggestions as to how adjusting can be made?     Went back to try again and System Preferences won't open.  I have so many problems since I upgraded to Mavericks.  Please don't tell me that it isn't Mavericks causing the problems as I never had them before.
After upgrading to Mavericks, my .flv files converted to Boxee and they won't open.  Is there a way to convert them en masse back to the way they were before or preferably to MP4?  I know I can convert them a few at a time with Miro and/or other apps, but that would be a long, slow process.   Thanks
Yes. Thanks. Safe Mode Boot worked to some extent. A couple files that had disappeared returned. A new file I built to replace one that disappeared before has itself disappeared now.  TextEdit now works. Drag and drop not so much. Mavericks is now playing nicer. Track Pad is working better. I haven't had an opportunity to see what else is happening. Weird??!!!!!! Poultergeist???? Naw, just Apple. About a year or so ago, Time Machine lost all the files that were backed...
I notice that at least three posts on this thread no longer show up, at least, on my computer. That includes the last two and an earlier one showing my Activity Monitor readings about 'Kernel Task'.  How did that happen?   My biggest concern at this point is that Activity Monitor shows that 'kernel task' is using: 670.6 MB of memory - 83 threads - 0 ports - 0 PID - root user. Is that normal or a sign of a problem?   In addition: com.apple.IconServicesAgent is using,...
