You should be able to add your former "master" account to Internet Account settings in iOS and OS X as another account and turn on Contacts for that account. This should allow you to have shared contacts on devices that have individual iCloud IDs set up as primary iCloud accounts. You can also turn on email under this formerly master" account to have a family email account. There's no need to keep Calendar or reminders enabled under that account anymore because those are...
Called a local car audio shop and put a deposit on the last remaining unit. Then, started reading up on this model. FM/AM radio is available - that's good. Backup camera connection is available - the guy at the car audio shop says he doesn't know if my car camera connector needs an adapter, but he said he could make one. The backup camera will function as factory unit does. Absence of Bluetooth is bad - I don't understand this decision. If the phone is not plugged...
This is the first in a sequence of upcoming stupid moves from AT&T that will probably make me switch. If T-Mobile continues to improve its network, it will be worth switching everything to T-Mobile. I like their CEO's attitude to stop all the bullish*t and just do honest business.    AT&T knows that T-Mobile can't compete with them on the network coverage yet, and so they are doing this Apple SIM locking to screw their competitors. What they are end up doing is screwing...
So, if my iPhones are 64 GB, my iPad is 128GB, and my Macs are 1 TB, and if I buy 200 GB of iCloud storage, what happens when I upload a photo library that is 150 GB? Am I limited by the size of flash memory in my iPhone? Apple said that every photo will automatically sync across all devices using iCloud photos, and all of the photos will be stored in iCloud. Obviously, it's not possible to jam 150 GB worth of photos in the 64 GB of storage on the iPhone or 128 GB on the...
Overall faster is not a scientific definition. If you are interested in editing and transcoding high-definition videos but are not planning to drive 4K resolution monitors, you should go with the 2012 i-7 quad-core 2.6 GHz Mac Mini. If you can help it, buy it with the least amount of RAM (if you buy it refurb from Apple) and upgrade RAM to 16 GB for around $75.If you are interested in driving 4K displays, go with the 2014 Mini. I don't know how well the highest-end i7...
Well, Phil Schiller did say that the Mac Mini was an entry-level Mac for switchers. This is what they planned this computer for all along but got carried away a little with the 2011 and 2012 high-end Mac Minis. They are back where they wanted Mac Mini to be. I'm glad I got two 2012 i7 2.6 GHz quad-core CPU Mac Minis two years ago. I will be keeping them for some time until 27" retina iMacs get under $2000.
I doubt you can even play video on the 27" Cinema Display using your Mac Mini 2009. I used to have a 15" MacBook Pro Core 2 Duo 2009 with Mini Display Port, and even though it could drive the 27" Cinema Display for static content (like regular desktop elements, word processing, and even Aperture photo editing), as soon as I would try to play video from Aperture or Youtube, everything would become extremely jerky. As soon as I replaced that MacBook Pro with a 2012 Mac Mini...
I'm no expert in profession audio, video, or photo editing, but I heard that video transcoding of high-definition video, especially 4K takes some serous compute power, and that one needs to have at least a four-core CPU to be able to do this. So, your definition of "professional" may differ from what others call "professional". If you are able to do "professional-level video-editing" on your late-2009 Mac Mini, which is a dual-core CPU with 8 GB of RAM, I wonder why Apple...
HDD killed all the performance on 2012 Minis. Fusion Drive is a huge improvement even when pared with the 5000 RPM HDD. Those 2012 Minis had great specs, but without Fusion or SDD, those specs didn't help much. This time around, apple is pairing the specs to the drive performance. For a regular consumer, the mid-range 2014 Mini with 8 GB of RAM and Fusion drive will be just fine. It's only power users who realize they have been pushed out of the Mac Mini line into much...
That all depends on the purpose. The graphics on the 2014 Mini is definitely much better than that of 2012 Mini. However, the non-graphic processing power of the 2012 2.6 GHz Quad-core i-7 Mini beats the 3.0 GHz 2014 dual-core I-7 Mini. For those running moderate server tasks on the Mini, the 2014 model is a travesty. For those who need to drive a 4K display with moderate consumer-grade apps, the 2014 model is the way to go. However, let's be clear, Mac Mini 2014 cannot be...
