Okay, I've been putting it off until this morning. "Mañana, mañana" as it were: then it finally occurred to me that each day of delay is a day of depreciation in value for the old MBP. Gotta get to work!One last item of clearing the MBP of personal information. When I set up the MBP for sale, as you said, I want to reload the OS from the install disk, then download updates from Apple to make the machine current. I'd give the machine some sort of generic "name" and give the...
Apple has not given a specific and credible explanation of how information the user has permitted to be stored by one application is protected from use by all other applications (and hackers). Apple has not provided a specific and credible explanation of how the user may gain access to specific items of information permitted to be stored.
Does that mean, any and all iPad cases must be the ones made by Apple? No one may sell "iPad cases"? Or does it mean, simply, one may not describe it as an "iPad case" but rather as "a case made for thin computing appliances"? Absurd.
On Windoze, of course, I was "told" a determined hacker could dig beyond such an attempt and find personal stuff anyway, but I'll take your word for it. Anyway, the Snow Leopard "Installation, features, and refinements" CD I have is 10.6 dated in 2009. So I assume that after install I'd have to sit there quite awhile, doing software update (including iTunes, especially) to get it all back up to date, since 2009. Right? (Well, right. DuhUhuh.) Thanks again.
I have a two-year-old 15" MacBookPro. Inasmuch as we have two newer 13" MBPs which are entirely sufficient for our needs, I'm gonna put up the 15" MBP for sale. My question is this. I'm aware from past experience that the only sure way to deal with Windoze machines was to remove and utterly destroy the hard drive, for security reasons, to eliminate ALL possibility of compromising important personal information. I suspect so for MBPs (they're not holy, after all) but I...
I hear you there... I suppose I'm weird enough to hope that progress won't make a new computer obsolete before the Applecare expires...But at least, I'm relieved for now that JRE can easily be downloaded. We depend heavily upon LibreOffice, and are not willing to go the route of Google Docs (or especially Apple iWork/Pages) for all our word processing. Who knows, in the heat of the competition to come, Apple could make it difficult to get to Google Docs? Naw, just...
iPhoto would easily sync with my iPod Touch, of course, and (IMO) offers a better slide show mechanism. But I suppose it is not to be. Thanks for your response!
We have 11,000+ photos, organized into 11 yearly folders. Picasa can monitor folders, and detect both deletion of a photo from a folder and movement of a photo from one folder to another. Can iPhoto be persuaded to do the same, without manual intervention? So far, all I've been able to do is, import folders one by one into the iPhoto library (unchecking the business of importing the actual photo so that iPhoto merely indexes the photo). iPhoto loads each folder as...
Yep...as if I'd pay $1500 for a piece of software on a $600 device... Hah!
Okay, that's reassuring. Different from my old HP iPaq. When we had two iPaqs, the HP laptop would NOT accept more than one! It was tightly tethered, and griped when a second one attempted to mate with it. Identified by some other means than iPaq name.
