  • Lion 10.7.3 and later will backup the recovery partition which means you actually can boot from the drive and then do a restore from the backup. True, but modifying a backup outside of any backup ...
  • What proprietary database? It's a copy of your drive with hard links to various versions of files and is directly readable in Finder or via the command line if you prefer. It's indexed so that you ...
  • It's a combination of an SSD and a hard drive that appears as one drive and automatically keeps commonly used files on the SSD for speed with less commonly used files on the hard drive without the ...
  • It won't show up in Finder, but Lightroom, iPhoto, etc., will see it and be able to copy photos. That happens when a camera only supports PTP (Picture Transfer Protocol) and not Mass Storage on ...
  • Apple inadvertently mentioned a 'mid-2014' Mac mini in a tech note a couple of months ago, but for some reason it was not released. References to that have since been removed.
  • Printer drivers are downloaded and installed automatically as needed, unless you have a very oddball printer that isn't in Apple's system.
  • The last couple of years had iPhones in September and Macs/iPads in October.
  • No they definitely could not. Apple didn't own Rosetta. Apple licensed technology called QuickTransit from Transitive Corporation and called it Rosetta. Apple did not create it themselves. IBM ...
  • There's no need to upgrade the old Mac to Mavericks. He'll have the old MacBook to export any files, should that be needed. It doesn't matter when they're deactivated. True. Also true. If you ...
  • When you first boot the new MacBook Pro, it will ask you if you want to migrate from another Mac. Choose yes and follow the steps. It's really that simple. Once migration is done (which will take a ...
  • They did. It's $20, Apple part number MC588Z/A, available by phone only, 800-MYAPPLE (692-7753).
  • Only for 10.6 Server, not the standard client version. Lion is when it changed to allowing the standard version to be virtualized.
  • There is no need for Western Digital's software (or any drive-maker's software for that matter) and it's generally the cause of a variety of problems. Go to System Preferences, Mission Control ...
  • That depends on what you want. Start with iPhoto or iMovie because they are free and you already have them and based on what you describe, may be sufficient. If those don't fit your needs, then ...
  • No they couldn't. How so?
  • Being able to run Snow Leopard does not guarantee that it can run Mavericks or Yosemite, however, running Mountain Lion does. Why would Apple lie about the system requirements? You say you've ...
  • The right way is either remove it like any other App Store app or drag to trash, depending on how it was installed. Or just ignore it. An app does nothing if it's not launched. There is no need to ...
  • Nothing lasts forever. Thunderbolt and USB 3 are faster than FireWire, and you can always get a FireWire adapter for legacy hardware.
  • Your numbers are completely wrong, off by three orders of magnitude. Current 802.11ac is 1300 Mbps (not Kbps) or 1.3 Gbps, which is faster than GigE. Real world speeds will be lower, and in the ...
  • Actually, the issue is PowerPC-only apps. Without Rosetta, those won't run at all. Intel-only and Universal apps (which contain both Intel and PowerPC native code) will run on any compatible Intel ...
