Hello, I have one of those home gym/weight sets for doing weights at home.  The actual model I have is the Hoist H100.  I'm also into running a lot and for running I use RunKeeper.  It's wonderful to keep track of my running each year and throughout the year.  What I'd like is something like that for weight training. Basically what I'd like to do is be able to digitize my weight training.  Currently I have a piece of paper that I photocopy that has each of the stages of...
Hello, I have an early 2008 MacBook Pro.  It still had the original battery in it which a few months ago started expanding.  At first I thought it wasn't a big deal but later on it started getting much bigger until the actual casing of the battery popped open.  Unfortunately it was installed so slightly pressed into my case where it seems the keyboard slightly raised up. I went to OWC's website and purchased a new battery for this laptop.  It's in there now and seems to...
I'd like to upgrade it to Mountain Lion and actually tried it sometime ago when I upgraded my other Mac but unfortunately it's not compatible.
Good catch.  Sorry for the typo but I meant to say Lion, not Mountain Lion.  Both my MBP and Mac Mini are on Lion and the MBP gave me the option for the update but the Mac Mini didn't.  My Mac Pro is fortunately on Mountain Lion and will soon be on Mavericks.  I'm in the market for a new MBP and those new ones sure look tempting :)
I have a couple older Macs around the house that are running on Mountain Lion and unfortunately can't be upgraded beyond that.  One of them, a MacBook Pro, got the option to update to Safari 6.1 among other things.  The other is a Mac Mini.  Even though that's on the exact same OS, same version, I don't get an option to update to Safari 6.1. I tried to use Google to find a place, hopefully from Apple.com, to download Safari 6.1 but I did not find one.  Is there anywhere I...
Hello, I am setting up an iMac with Mountain Lion for my son.  He's just learning about computers and only uses certain apps.  I'm obviously only putting what he would use in the dock but also I realized that LaunchPad just kind of throws everything in there.  It seems it's possible to rearrange the apps/screens like on an iPhone.  What I don't see is a way to remove certain apps from the Launchpad screens.  It seems to even put some apps on there that are not even...
Hello,   I recently launched a website and in the Contact Us section I have a lot of ways for people to contact me.  There are buttons for Skype, Google Talk, MSN, Yahoo, and AIM for example.  To complete the contact information I'd like to have a button for people to contact me via iMessage. I know I can simply put something such as "Contact me via iMessage" and then put my ID behind it but I'd like something as simple as a button where they can click on it and then...
My fiancee owns an iPhone and is going into a training program for a new job.  It's a very intense training and she has a lot of items to learn and memorize. As part of this she's looking into using flash cards so that she can use them daily and use them to study and remember these things. My question is since she has an iPhone is there any type of iPhone app for flash cards?  She'd need something where she can obviously put the questions and answers into the system and...
I was able to successfully boot from the SuperDuper cloned drive this morning so it seems that the hard drive is likely the issue.  This system came with a 160GB drive but I upgraded it to another drive at a later point. I have a 500GB drive now but I was getting low on space so was planning to upgrade in the near future. I just ordered a 750GB drive from an online store.  I like your suggestion of a SSD.  This laptop is old but I hope to get at least one more year out...
Hello,   I have a MacBook Pro that I believe is approximately a 2006 model. It is running OS X Lion.  The problem I have just started this evening. I was using the laptop and some applications were not working properly. I tried to open an app called Things and also Word.  Both would bounce in the dock like they were opening but then would stop and never opened.   I then rebooted the mac because of this and have been unable to get in since then.  When it gets to...
