  • Chrome causing Final Cut Pro X to slow down, freeze, and crash

    On my work Windows machine I finally had to give in and move from Firefox to Chrome as a bunch of internal company tools have a lot of interface anomalies in anything but Chrome (despite our internal devs insisting there's no issue the tools are totally browser agnostic), so I'm stuck with it. Don't love it, but no significant problems for what I do. On my personal Mac stuff, it's Safari all the way, with the main important feature for me being easy icloud sync of bookmarks and currently open windows between all my Macs and iOS devices.

  • iTunes 12.7.1 update released at tail-end of big Apple OS update day

    Does anyone still you ITunes other than to backup/wipe their IOS devices?
    I use it all the time, primarily
    1. It's my home stereo, beaming to various airplay speakers depending on which room I'm in. (My library is on my MacBook Pro, so I can cart it around the house, or leave it and control the playback via the remote app on my phone)
    2. I sync my music to my phone and ipad, as I have very huuuge music library, and am not interested in streaming services.

  • iTunes 12.7.1 update released at tail-end of big Apple OS update day

    Key fix for me: in 12.7, when looking at songs in column browser view, which I use 100% of the time, the adjustable center divider that separates the top columns of artist (left) and album (right), from the song list below, would constantly reset to a tiny top portion, forcing you to readjust this any time you move away from that view/media type, which for my usage meant fiddling with it constantly.

    This appears to be fixed in 12.7.1, so yay for that.

    Does anyone one know if a formerly HDD Mac 2012 non-retina MBP in my case) that’s had the HDD replaced with a SSD will have that SSD automatically converted to APFS from HFS+ like the newer Macs that are aways SSD-only? Or will APFS not be an option for now as with the HDD and Fusion Drive users?


    If it's a SSD it will be upgraded.
    Can I ask where you found this confirmation regarding 3rd-party SATA-bus-connected SSDs? If there's a link, I'd like to see if there's additional information.
