Older imac 250 GB full except 4 GB now. Mostly iphoto and itunes. I have an external terabyte HD for backup. What is the easiest way to free up space? Move photos or music off the hard drive? Which would be better. Have already looked for wasted space, cleaned out various folders etc numerous times. Thanks!
Currently use TW cable with one of their rental modems. Would like to buy my own and add wifi to my home. I use an iMac, a couple of iPhones and will possibly add a tablet soon. No gaming. Home is under 2000sq ft. Use is mostly casual internet, work related. Occasionally download movies. Stream from my mac to my stereo would be nice. Can anyone make any recommendations? I don't need anything top end but would care to avoid too rapid obsolescence. TIA
My Imac has started running slow past week. What is the best way to look into possible causes of this?
Want to share my entire itunes library with another user on the same IMAC I think we used to share them all, but now not... I do almost all of the uploading of files but she cant see these When i go into system preferences>file sharing is on and pubic folders should share everything. Can someone help point me to the likely source of this problem: I suspect multiple libraries got created somehow: can these be merged?
Can someone walk me through how to best set up my imac and iphone so that my syncs work more smoothly? I would like to sync just weekly and 1) pull over photos from the phone into iphoto 2) pull over new podcasts that i like and get rid of the old ones (this is my biggest problem right now, it seems like i keep getting the old ones reloaded and sometimes the new ones dont show at all) 3) pull over address changes bi-directionally I would like to do this in as idiot proof a fashion as possible: plug and play thanks!
OK: i know there are tons of posts asking some of the same things, and i have waded through many of them but may i beg your indulgence and ask a couple of relatively straightforward newbie questions? 1) If I need to work with Office documents from a PC environment (mostly word, occasionally PPT and excel) from time to time , can i do so without installing VM Fusion (which most here seem to favor) along with my Windows XP? Will Mac Office work with them? 2) Any discussions on how to best deal with the glare of the new monitor? 3) How good is the mail program: should i abandon gmail, run them both or go back to firebird? 4) Any reason to use safari if i already know firefox? Or consider one of the other choices? Thanks for indulging me. I have a lot to learn about this. ( )
Would like to finally buy an IMAC and wondering about the Timing of a purchase? [more inside]
