My Software Update application keeps asking me to install these Digital Camera Raw Compatibility updates, but I don’t have an SLR or any camera that shoots RAW images, so I’d rather not install that update. How can I get Software Update to stop asking me?
I use Firefox and want to do some spring cleaning on my bookmarks. I know a lot of them are probably outdated. Seriously, I have hundreds. Before I start wading through them, is there a way to quickly weed out the ones that don’t even go anywhere anymore?
I thought I could stream all of my music from my Mac to my AirPort Express, but I can’t send my Pandora music to it. I’ve looked all over my AirPort Utility settings and my System Preferences, but there’s no way for me to stream Pandora to it. What gives?
I recently had a breakthrough moment that made me realize how dramatically the technology world has improved since the introduction of the iPhone. I was sitting in a taxi in New York City when my mom called me with an urgent Mac problem that needed to be solved immediately. Now, talking someone through a solution over the phone can quickly become an exercise in frustration. But not this time around.
These days, everybody and their cat is on Twitter. (Shout out to @grandmawrinkles, the hairless feline of Real Housewives of New Jersey!) But if you follow every reality-show pet, pro athlete, and hot dog vendor you come across, your main Twitter feed quickly gets out of control. Twitter lists have been around less than a year but are still mainly the realm of power users, even though casual users could benefit from them just as much--if not more.
Is there any way to have my iPhone leave a blank space on a home screen? I leave a blank spot at the end of some of my home screens, but then when I buy new apps, those apps are slotted into the blank spots, instead of added to the end of the list, where I want them. And moving them, even in iTunes, gets tedious.
I just updated to Mac OS X 10.6.3 through Software Update, but now all of my fonts look really strange in Pages and Keynote. Even worse, most of my fonts are completely missing from Word and Excel! This was all working just fine in 10.6.2. Is there any way that I can downgrade back to 10.6.2?
Terminal (in Applications/Utilities) gives you direct access to the UNIX system that underpins Mac OS X. By typing specific commands into your Terminal window, you can make changes, open settings, or access features that aren’t available by any other means.
