    So, is there any trick to incorporating my family’s 4 different accounts into one family account?  Will it be transparent to them (like will they just have access to more iCloud storage under their existing Apple ID?  
    We have nothing linking us as a family at this point...
    Ya it’s pretty simple just add their apple ids and it will email or text them a link to join then everyone instantly gets all the perks.  You’ll need a family music plan to spread that to the rest of the family but with apple one that’s much more simple now compared to before since it’s included.

    Does anyone know if I can get refunded for recent charges for the services I had before I just upgraded to Apple One?  

    Just yesterday I was charged 14.99 to my Apple Card for Apple Music but today just got charged the 29.99 upon signing up for Apple One.  

    Also I had prepaid for a year of Apple Arcade for $50 about 2 months ago.  

    Just wondering if there was a way to get that $$$ back so I'm not getting double charged (might be an issue for many).  Maybe some sort of prorated refund for those of us who have already paid into the services?
    If you go into your account and look at your purchase history it looks like they are doing a bunch of refunds on the other services after subscribing to apple one...

  • How to pick the best printer for your new Mac mini

    I've had Hp printers for years with Macs with very few problems.  I usually avoid the cheapest ones and look for sales on the mid priced HP color lasers.  We print a lot in my small home office so I do wear them out after 5 years.  I currently have a HP LaserJet Enterprise m553dn with 1gb of memory it is really really fast.  almost like a copy machine when duplex printing.  with 10,000 page rating per toner.  best Hp color laser I have owned.  It's just a very big printer compared to my old one.   If you buy printopia for the Mac by decisive tactics then your can AirPrint and wirelessly print from all your devices.  I've used this software since AirPrint first came out and it works very well.

    Laser is defiantly a must. By far the cheapest way to print. We stopped using inkjet printers 15 years ago when they all clogged up.  With such cheap online photo printing from Snapfish or Shutterfly it made no sense to print photos at home anymore.
