  • First... many people love iCloud. I don't. So I cannot advise you on that. I also have never used any off-site storage, so I'm no help there. If it is of any interest, here's what I do instead.  I ...
  • I understand that this is two separate issues.  I was referring to my frustration level when I found that my Clarisworks docs couldn't be read in Pages. :-) carolyn

  • I have two WD "My Passport" ext. drives I've first installed on ML OS 10.8.5.  They are working fine on Mavericks 10.9.5.   My question regards a new WD Passport 2 TB drive I received as a ...
  • Back in film days and before zooms were common, I traveled with two SLRs , one with a 28mm w/a lens and one with a 50 mm f1.4 lens for low light and museum pictures. This also gave me a backup ...

  • The default on my old iphone 4 was the same gray with random bubbles as the default on my 6+. I ended up changing it to a good looking varable dark-to-medium blue. Nice change for a change! 😊 carolyn
