  1. Wow. Must have upgraded the license. Looks much different.
  2. As far as I can tell from a little research is, MAYBE. This seemed to have the best comparison I could find - https://www.cnet.com/how-to/usb-type-c-thunderbolt-3-one-cable-to-connect-them-all/ I am not at all clear about what speed is supported at the actual bus in the devices which I think it the limiting factor.
  3. I use SuperDuper for backups rather than time machine and I have a 2 TB drive with 3 partitions that I use for 3 different machines. I know of no reason you couldn't do that with TM but since I don't use it, I can't be sure.
  4. Never encountered that situation, but I'm thinking it might be related to the game rather than iOS. Regardless, my steps are - Turn off Wii - Close out all the apps on the iPhone - reboot the iPhone. A full restore is pretty drastic, but that would definitely lead me to believe a game problem
  5. Glad to hear it worked out. Love Apple but have to admit that it really isn't "It just works" anymore
  6. The world has greatly changed. Not just because there's a new non techie US president. The Internet is now ubiquitous as amazingly enough is Mac OS and iOS (I remember when Macs were 'don't buy them"). We are here for everybody with Apple problems We may not be able to solve them all but we WILL try. We ARE NOT Twitter or Facebook. We're a community who will try to help people with the little stuff. If you're a member, tell your friends who have Apple devices. Time for a reboot
  7. Sorry, Bud. Then we are up to 'which Mac OS are you on' ? I have had to upgrade my MacOS several times over the last 10 years to keep up with the expected iOS for my iPhone
  8. Have you updated iTunes lately? Another easy thing to try is using a different port on your Mac.
  9. I recently obtained an HP OfficeJet 3830 that we really like. Totally wireless so we can all print from our phones, laptops and desktops. And, if I want to print something remotely, I can attach what I want printed to an email. Sorry, don't know about Google Print support cuz I don't have/want a Chromebook I also signed up for the cheapest version of Instant Ink, so after X number of prints, HP sends me new Ink cartridges They claim it has saved me $7.50 in the first month, but the savings aside, it's SO convenient to not have to find the right print cartridges at a store.
  10. I've been using Audio Hijack for years. Quite versatile. Also, I personally do a phone backup to my computer at least once a month. Over the years I've found the cloud restore isn't as reliable as a 'real' restore from backup.
  11. Hope you have a great day. I know things aren't as busy as they used to be, but this is still my 'go to' source for Apple discussions.
  12. I've got a mid-2011 i5 iMac that I bumped the RAM from 4GB to 12GB and got a nice performance boost. Running El Cap just fine.
  13. Have to say I'm still old school. I have 2 scheduled Super Duper backups. One is weekly to a always connected external and the other is monthly that I keep at the office
  14. I hear you John! I've never been at that end of the Mac spectrum but have been following since the 80s Hasn't it always been true that the current version of a MacPro is good for several years?
  15. Am much as I hate to admit, it is 'normal' not good not expected but normal I've heard a lot about it and experienced on my 5S but not on my SE. Sometimes a total reboot will fix
