I need to purchase a new Wi-Fi router and am looking at several but am looking at the Airport Base Station. Most of my devices such as my Mac's all use N networking but other devices such as my Xbox 360 use g networking. When doing research on the Airport Base Station I read that when you connect G devices to the Airport Base Station it will slow down the entire network to G speed so that all your N devices really only get G speed. Is this still an issue? Does the...
Thank you. I just did that and registered a free account and installed the tools. Now I can start learning and developing.
I have just begun reading the book, iPhone and iPad Apps for Absolute Beginners. In the first chapter it talks about joining the developer program and then downloading the SDK and installing the Interface Developer, Xcode, and iPhone/iPad Simulator. I began the process to do this but it appears to cost $99/year. I'm fine with that but it appears I read somewhere that you only have to pay this and join when you submit the apps and that you can download the tools before...
I need to do a complete hard drive restore from Time Machine. I looked at google but the information that I saw is for when the main system drive fails. The situation I have is my main system drive is running perfectly but a 2nd drive, a data drive, failed. Both the system drive and data drive were backed up by Time Machine. I already contacted Seagate to do an RMA exchange so I want to be prepared when my new drive arrives. How can I use Time Machine to restore the...
I have a special needs son who has a Mac and at times I have to limit access to certain features of his mac. He uses iTunes to listen to music that we have purchased for his Mac but at times he has the habit of borrowing CD's from his friends and wanting to read them into iTunes on his Mac. We don't want him to be able to do this. Is there a way to turn off this feature or keep him from reading CD's into iTunes? Thank you for your help.
I have a special needs son and for this reason I have to limit what he has access to on his iMac. With the Mac App Store coming I had made the choice to simply not install/download the Mac App Store. I realized that this morning that is not an option, it is installed as part of the 10.6.6 update. I removed it from the dock but still I realize it is installed on the Mac and for example it's an option on the Apple pulldown menu and I know there is an option of when a file...
I have a Mac Pro and am looking for a Webcam/Mic. There are many on the market so I'm having a hard time deciding which one to get. I know some are HD and I'd be glad to get an HD webcam but that is not necessary. I have several questions: -I have looked at mainly Logitech Webcams but are there other brands I should look at? -I want one that will mount to the top of the monitor -I use the Mac side mainly and would like to use it with Photobooth, iChat, and...
I have a Mac Pro and currently have two drives in it, a system drive that's using as the startup disc and for most of my use. The 2nd drive is more like a server drive which is used on that system but also shared with all computers on my home network. i use it for things like clipart, backups of itunes from the laptops, media files, etc. I just installed a 3rd hard drive and have been planning to set it up as a Time Machine drive for my Mac Pro. I have several questions...
I definitely see what you mean. The more I'm looking at it instead of going the RAID route I'm considering Time Machine. I have used that successfully on other systems and it would back up hourly and if I delete a file it won't replicate onto another hard drive. I am sure Time Machine slows down the system some but I think it may be a better option for me to use than RAID. We also have an offsite backup which is done weekly.
I have a Mac Pro that I want to create a mirrored RAID set in. I have a 1TB Hard Drive that is the main system drive. I just added a 2nd 1TB Hard Drive that I wanted to use along with this first hard drive to create a mirrored RAID set. I used the following document to help with the process: http://docs.info.apple.com/article.h...sa772e2fc.html I have opened up Disk Utility and think I may know how to do this but a few things concern me. First, it states that it...
