I’ve used Outlook for years and decided to try to use Apple’s Address Book instead. It’s user-friendly, but at times, it’s too limited in what it can do. One of the things I liked about Outlook was its ability to print what you see on the screen onto paper. Address Book prints as if it’s a list and never saves those items you would use every time. Is there a better way?
It was a slow week in big Mac news. The lull before the storm that is WWDC, no doubt. Google made a few waves, it's true, but they weren't very big ones. Facebook was Facebook, Twitter for iPhone finally came out...and, yeah. Like we said, nothing really earth shattering.
Still, the week was not without its points of interest, small though they may be. For real. So let's take a peek under the covers and see what did and didn't change the world, at least according to Mac|Life.
I have a MacBook Pro that I accidently picked up one day with my thumb on the screen, cracking the LCD. Is there a reliable company who can fix this, or do you folks know a solution? I heard that the Apple Store charges $800 to fix the screen. I might as well go out and buy a new computer if it costs that much.
Reporting a bug for a third-party iPhone is easy to do via the App Store app on my iPhone, but where do I go when there’s a bug or conflict with the first-party apps from Apple? How do we let Apple know that something is wonky?
Once a stronghold of privacy, Facebook has started playing fast & loose with users’ personal data in recent months. If you’re scratching your head wondering how all of this affects you as a user of the service, read on.
We just purchased an iMac with the iWork suite. I used to use Microsoft Word to print individual envelopes of different sizes and also Avery mailing labels. Word let me specify which Avery labels I was using and would automatically print them. Can Pages do this too, or am I going to have to purchase Word for the Mac?
I just got rid of my Mighty Mouse and bought Apple’s new Magic Mouse. I like it, but I didn’t realize that it only has two buttons. The old Mighty Mouse had four buttons that I could configure to trigger Dashboard and Exposé and Spaces.
Please help! I’m a web designer, and I just upgraded to Snow Leopard. As soon as I did that, everything went awry. Text files that I created in BBEdit are now opening in TextEdit, HTML files that I created with Dreamweaver are now opening in Safari, JPG images that I created with Photoshop are now opening in Preview, and PDF files that I created in Acrobat Pro are opening in Preview! What in the world is going on here?
