 True. When my wife and I got our new iPhone 6's, I was surprised at the new iOS and how it managed photos. I just turned off all sharing and we import our photos the "old fashioned" way: connect via USB to our MacBook Pro and import into iPhoto. No duplicates, no missed photos, all backed up via Time Machine.
Thanks...I guess there isn't a solution. Maybe we're in the minority where we only have one family computer, and we don't mind sharing a user account. Hand-off and Continuity are new features, so maybe in the future there will be consideration for how multiple user accounts can use Continuity on the same computer.
We do each have our own iCloud accounts, and on our iPhones we are signed into our respective accounts. Right now, the MacBook is logged in under my iCloud account. My question is wether there is a way to have two iCloud accounts on the same Mac for the purpose of Continuity/Handoff working for both of us on the same Mac.
Thanks...it helped a bit when I deleted all but four extensions and restarted. The four I kept are MeasureIt!, OneNote Clipper, Pocket, and Save to Pocket. I then disabled those and restarted, and I'm still getting 8-10 "Google Chrome Helper" processes. While they are not taking up nearly as much memory, those processes (not including the actual application) are using over 600MB of memory. It happens even when the only thing I have open in Chrome is an incognito window. If...
A couple of weeks ago, I got an upgrade to both my work and home laptops: a 15" mid-2012 MacBook Pro for work, and a 13" mid-2012 MacBook Pro at home. I noticed right off the bat that both were more sluggish than I had expected...moreso than our 2008 MacBook that survived a coffee spill. Today, I finally had time to do some digging, and I found that Google Chrome was the main culprit. The actual application only uses about 160MB, but there are several (8-10 at a time)...
Our family has one Mac (a Mid 2012 MacBook Pro). However, my wife and I both have iPhones, and one feature of Continuity we both want to use is SMS messaging from our Mac. Is it possible to have different iCloud logins for different users on our Mac? That is, could I log into our Mac as one user signed into my iCloud account (and Messages with then use my iPhone for SMS messaging), and my wife have her own user account on our Mac so that when she logs into our Mac she is...
This morning, a cup of coffee spelled (or spilled in this case?) the demise of our beloved 2008 white MacBook. We don't have a ton to spend, and this MacBook Pro deal seems to fit the bill for us. We aren't pro users, but I would imagine that 3 years from now, I'll want to extend the life of our next machine by upgrading the memory. Since I've always been able to just add RAM on my own, I need to know: will it be expensive/difficult to take my new MacBook Pro into a repair...
 As best as I can tell, devices need to use the same iCloud account in order to "hand off" to one another.
I know there are a ton of great uses for TouchID (Apple Pay, App store authentication, etc.). But one of my favorite features of my iPhone 6 is the ability to use TouchID to unlock it by keeping my thumb on the home button after pressing it. That's elegance in design.
Thanks for the write-up on this...I didn't know you could see so much info about users and family sharing at iCloud.com. I'm surprised, however, that you can't see how much iCloud storage you are using and how much you have left. Or am I missing something? We haven't yet paid for any extra iCloud storage, so it would be nice to see online what we are using rather than having to go to iOS settings to figure it out.   On a side note, I'm still trying to figure out how to...
