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?
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?
Your Mac is a hefty investment, so it’s in your best interest to keep it running well for as long as you can. Upgrading its components instead of going for a new machine is a smart idea. (Bonus: Better components will also increase the resale value.)
Still, like we said, your Mac is a hefty investment. So before you crack it open to drop in a larger and faster hard drive, add more system memory, or even slap on a fresh new battery, you’ll have questions. You’ll want to be confident in choosing components, finding the right tools, and knowing what to do before you find yourself digging into your Mac’s circuitry.
Thanks to the combination of Dropbox and Quickoffice Connect Mobile Suite, your iPhone and your Macs can all act like multiple devices sharing Office files on the same network--no matter where you are. (And we hate to bring up the Dark Side, but this will work seamlessly on PCs as well.) Once you see how simple this is to configure, you’ll wonder why everything in life can’t be this easy.
Regarding Ask in Feb/10 (“iSight to iMovie to Email,”
p81), it’s easier to record a video message with QuickTime Player. And
Photo Booth is even easier, especially for the grandmother who was
mentioned in the original question.
I’m running Tiger (Mac OS 10.4.11) on my six-year-old PowerPC iMac. I want to upgrade my OS to as high as it can go and then upgrade some applications as well. I got a series of OS upgrades from apple.com/download, which I thought would take me from 10.4.11 up to 10.4.6. But unless I can get 10.4.2 installed, I have no hope of moving further. When I attempt to install 10.4.2, I get a message saying, “You can’t install Mac OS X Update on this volume. This volume does not meet the requirements for this upgrade.” Is the problem that I’m upgrading from 10.4.11 rather than 10.4.1? I don’t have 10.4.1 to go back to. Any wisdom, or am I stuck in a sinkhole?
