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?
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.
