  • It's been a feature of software for decades. When I first started coding, 16kB of RAM was the norm on mini-computers; hard disks, if you had them, were slow and only 1 or 2 MB. Every line of code ...
  • is here: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/USB#Connectors
  • Yes Whether you can do that depends on the app that holds the photos, since you can't access the phones file system. Start iTunes when the phone's connected, select the device (should be an icon ...
  • The new wireless mouse and keyboard both now have built-in rechargeable batteries, which solves the leaky battery problem. They are paired by connecting with the charging cable, which is quick and ...
  • Why do you say that? There's an argument for placing different datasets on separate spindles when using spinning disks, assuming they are accessed concurrently, to reduce seek times and maximise ...
  • Appreciate it is a tongue-in-cheek question, but I guess the answer is that it was an emergency patch to the release because of a serious bug that affected some devices/modes of update, and 10.1.2 ...
  • According to Mac Rumors: The current version of iOS is iOS 10.1.1 , released to the public on October 31. iOS 10.1.1 is a minor bug fix update that addresses an issue causing iOS devices to lose ...
  • If by running LR and PS side by side you mean having both open and switching between them, the dual core cpu is probably adequate. If you mean having both programs processing lengthy jobs at the ...
  • Mouse vs. trackpad is a lot to do with personal preference. Can't really comment on your personal preference - mine is for mouse. The only reason I see for the wired keyboard (unless you want the ...
  • I have no particular thoughts on Western Digital, nor any recent personal experience on which to form some. In general, I think a lot of people get far too excited about drive reliability ...
  • Yes, pretty much that's it. Click on 'Buy', click on 'Select', click on 'How much memory is right for you?' It tells you on the page you linked. Click on 'Tech specs' and it tells you again. What ...
  • A catalog should only be on one drive (can't span drives, multiple live copies would be a screw-up). Don't know what you mean by linked, but images referenced from the catalog can be anywhere and ...
  • Yep. They've disbanded/reallocated the development/engineering team (according to a Reuters report). The devices haven't been discontinued (yet) and we don't know what Apple's plans are. Any ...
  • Lightroom lets you choose the location of the catalog file and the camera raw cache in its preferences. Keep these on the internal SSD. By default, previews are stored with the catalogue. I think ...
  • Airport utility supports VPNs, static Its, port forwarding. You're painting it blacker than it is.
  • You should keep the catalogue on the internal SSD for speed. The raw files can go on external storage if you don't have room on the internal SSD. You can spread the files that are indexed in a ...
  • What is the 'it' that says 'not found'? Can you see it in Finder? Can you see it in Disk Utility? What does 'About this Mac' report for the appropriate interface (which is?) under 'System report'? ...
  • That's why you can (and probably should) encrypt it. Hard disks also only allow block-level writes.
  • Preview will let you mark up an image, add shapes, freehand lines, text, as well as make some basic adjustments. You could export the marked up images to Notes, to keep them in one place.
  • Is it maybe waiting for the disks on the RAID to spin up? If you look at the image folders through Finder before starting LR, do you get the effect?
