Timed perfectly with the release of the brand-new, Thunderbolt-enabled MacBook Pro, memory manufacturer Ramjet has announced the availability of a heaping helping of DDR3-1333 RAM, just for the shiny new block of aluminum wonderfulness.
Let’s say you bought one of the swanky new 11.6-inch MacBook Air base models -- you know, the one with a mere 64GB of storage. Now you’ve realized that your iPhoto library alone will consume a huge chunk of that. What to do? Soon you may be able to upgrade to 256GB -- and keep your old 64GB as a USB 3.0 flash drive.
Although it’s not widely publicized, one advantage to having an AT&T FamilyTalk Plan is that you can use another line’s eligibility to upgrade your own handset. How this works is fairly straightforward, but the release of the iPhone 4 has introduced a few new wrinkles that you might want to be aware of before you take the plunge.
The WWDC 2010 conference hasn't even started yet and it is believed that there will be an announcement during the conference keynote about the next generation iPhone. The lack of a new iPhone announcement hasn't stopped AT&T from starting to adjust user eligibility requirements for an iPhone upgrade for a number of customers.
Still using your Mac’s original keyboard and mouse--only now they’re covered by a thin layer of finger grime? That display starting to look a little dingy and dull? Is your external hard drive running out of room for all your cat photos, or are you interested in stepping up to a network drive so you can access your files from anywhere? Upgrading your Mac’s accessories and peripherals is a no-brainer.
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?
The faster your Mac runs, the faster you can work. The faster you can
work, the more you get done. The more you get done, the better you look
to colleagues, clients, and, of course, your boss. Even if your Mac is
strictly a home machine, used for fun stuff like Web browsing, email,
and creative projects, the faster it runs, the happier you’re likely to
be with your Mac-using experience. Catch our drift?
Even the fastest runners and most accomplished ballerinas don’t spend all their time running or dancing. The human body requires rest and rejuvenation—and so does your Mac. But just turning it off while you sleep isn’t enough. There are a variety of ways you can help your Mac regain its youthful vigor. But we know you’re busy. So rather than provide you with a list of tricky, expensive upgrades, we gathered a dozen-plus quick, refreshing ways to give your Mac a mini spa vacation. When you’re done, it’ll feel (almost) like new. Kind of like how you felt the last time you dusted off your yoga mat or got a massage.
