On my iMac at home, I use the Cisco VPN Client to remotely connect to my office’s server. But when I upgraded to Snow Leopard, my Cisco VPN Client stopped working. In fact, it won’t even launch anymore! I went to Cisco’s website to see if there was a new version to download, but they haven’t updated their VPN Client since February 2009. Are they planning on ever supporting Snow Leopard?
The hard drive on my MacBook Pro is too small, so I keep almost all my files on a 1TB Western Digital MyBook World Edition network hard drive, which allows me to access my files from anywhere. But Time Machine only backs up my laptop’s hard drive to a USB hard drive, so how can I also automatically back up what is on my network drive?
I use iChat all day long to chat with my coworkers on my Bonjour local network at the office, but the people I really care about chatting with are my friends on Facebook and Gmail. For that, I have to keep Facebook and Gmail open all day, but that doesn’t look too professional. Is there an app that lets me combine these into one window?
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?
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?
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.
I’m trying to scan a number of legal documents into Pages in order to circulate them among family members for their review and comment. They all have Apple computers with iWork ’09’s Pages and would be able to use the Comment and Track Changes features to post their suggested changes. While my Epson Stylus NX415 will scan a copy of each page into my computer, the file format scans the documents into PDF, and Pages will not import them so that I can make my changes for the family to review and comment on. Is there some way to convert the PDF files so we all can use our Pages program to get consensus on these documents without having to type them into Pages first?
