  1. I have a late-2015 4K retina iMac. I also have 12.9" iPad pro. I can fully charge this iPad in less than 3 hours (while in use!) via the Lightning to USB-C cable & Apple's 29W power wallwart. Is there a way to get USB3 data speeds when syncing the iPad with the iMac? It has USB 3 ports. Is there a way to add USB-C to the iMac via an adapter/dock through the iMac's USB3 or Thunderbolt 2 ports? Thanks! Steven

    Airplay Headphones?

    Hi all, Stereo Bluetooth headsets are nice. But, I would like to have Airplay headphones. Does such a beast exist? Does Airplay carry better audio quality than Bluetooth? Or, are they about the same? Noise canceling Airplay headphones would be ideal! But probably very pricey. Thanks! Steven

    AirPlay mirroring to aMac?

    Hi all, First of all, can the iPhobe 4 (not 4s) do AirPlay mirroring to an APple TV? Uf so, is there a way to use a Mac as the mirror instead of an Apple TV? I'm visuallt impaired. U can use the iPhone as is. I just thought it would be nice I could view the screen on my large monitor. Thanks! Steven
  5. Hi all, I was a long time WeatherBug user when I ran Windows. Now that I have switched to Mac OS (Nov. 2007), I have not found a really good weather software. Most that I have seen just show current temp and forecast from the menu bar. I'm looking for something that shows Doppler radar. I really would like to to have the iPad version of WeatherBug Elite on my Mac. Is there anything close? I did find RadarScope in the MAS for $29.99. I do have RadarScope on my iPhone and like it. But, I was looking for something a little lower in price if possible. Hmm, I'm in the Apple Developer program. I guess, I could set up virtual iPad using the iOS simulator but I haven't figured out how to set up the simulater, yet. Thanks! Steven

    256GB SSD in a Mac Pro?

    Hi all, I would eventually like to get a 256GB SSD as the system disk for my Mac Pro. I'm still using the 250GB HD that came with my Mac back in Nov. 2007. The drives the other three bays are at least 1.5 TB. Byu, it serms that all of the SSD drives are 2.5". The drive bays are 3.5". How do i put a SD in these bays? Is the a 2.5" to 3.5" converter? If so, which model is recommended? Thanks! Steven P.P. Yes, i do back up my system disk. Doing one now with SuperDuper.
  7. FWIW, the Sony headset sounds much better than the Motorola headset. Has much better base for music. But, the Motorola is Half the price of the Sony. YMMV.
  8. That's what I've done and it seems to be working fine. No drop outs. The "dongle" barely pokes out of the USB port in front.. Good news, my Sony headset now works with the Mac Pro using the dongle. But, I will probably just use the Sony headset with the iDevices and use the Motorola headset with the Mac. Thanks for your help! Steven
  9. I do have a USB Bluetooth dongle. How do I get the Mac to use it instead of the built-in one? Is it just Plug 'n Play? BTW, got the Motorola headset today. It works good but I do get dropouts just sitting in front of the computer. Thanks! Steven
  10. So, basically, it may not work with my Mac Pro despite having no issues with iDevices. Here isthe Amazon UKlisting for my headset. I can't find it on the Amazon US site anymore. http://www.amazon.co.uk/gp/product/B000RZEK4K?ie=UTF8&force-full-site=1 So, I will try this Motorola vetsion which looks similar in style (behind the neck): http://www.amazon.com/dp/B002BH3I9U/ref=cm_sw_em_r_am_ip_am_us?ie=UTF8 BTW, I don't use a BT mouse or keyboard. I also turned off BT on my iPhone while teying to get the Sony headset to work with the Mac. I will report back on the results with the new geadset. Thanks, Steven
  11. Hi all, I got my Mac Pro in Nov. 2007. I'm trying to get my Sony DR-BT21G stereo Bluetooth headset to work with this Mac which is running 10.7.2 Lion. The headset works great with my iDevices. I have paired the headset to this Mac and it seems to be properly recognized as a Bluetooth headset. But, I can't get the headset to connect with the Mac. Here is what the settings show: http://i.pbase.com/o6/17/373317/1/139635084.MBw4A1cb.BTHeadset.jpg I was not prompted to enter a PIN for the device. Anyway, it would be 0000 if I had to. The headset shows up as an audio device when I opt+click on the speaker icon on the right part of the menu bar. Any help will be appreciated. Thanks, Steven
  12. Hi all! I'm looking for more iPhone/iPod touch wallpaper apps that allow full size image downloads besides the fitted 640x960 images? The app(s) Wallpapers HD and Wallpapers HD Gold are the only example of what I am talking about that I know of. You have the choice of downloading a fitted image or the full sized image. Some full sized images are as big as 2500x1536 or 2500x2000 which good enough for a 27" Apple Cinema Display. Other wallpaper apps only allow the download of wallpaper that fits the display of the device on which the app is running on. I really like having a choice of at least a 640x960 or 1024x1024 image. Plus, I find looking for wallpaper much easier on my iPhone 4 than on the Mac. I no longer have my iPad 1. Lost it at a doctor's office back in December. :-( Any suggestions will be appreciated. Thanks & Enjoy life! Steven
  13. Hi all! Is there a tool or hotkey that will quickly move a program window to the other monitor in a dual monitor set up? Yes, I can drag the window over and than click on the green maximize button. However, I am looking for something that will do this task in a single keystroke sequence. Example, I take photos in portrait and landscape modes. I use Aperture 3 for my photo processing. I have two 24" 1920x1200 Dell LCD monitors. I keep the left monitor rotated 90º clockwise so it is 1200x1920. When, when viewing a photo that is portrait, I would like to be able to quickly move the window to the other monitor. BTW, I keep many app windows like Aperture maximized. So, when switching a maximized window to the other monitor, I would like it to be maximized on the other monitor matching that monitor's dimension. Any help will be appreciated. Thanks & Enjoy life! Steven

    Open link in non-default browser

    Graham, Drag & drop works fine. Thanks for the tip. I will still look for a menu bar applet to change the default browser. But, I not in a big hurry to find such an app. I know there is one. Just can't think of the name. Your tip takes care of the itch for now. Enjoy life! Steven
  15. Hi all, From Mac Mail or some other programs, I would like to be able to open a link in a browser that is not default browser. My default browser is Firefox 4. But there are times I want to open a link in Safari or some other browser. When I right click on a link, one of the menu options is "Open link in browser". I sure which there was an option that would "Open Link >" with a submenu of installed browsers. Yes, I can open Safari Preferences and change the default browser, open the link, then change the setting back. But, I would not prefer to have to do this each time. A dropdown Menubar list to select the default browser would be OK. Is there anyway to do this? Or would it to be added under the "Services >" menu item? Any help will be appreciated! Thanks & Enjoy life, Steven P.S. Using Mac OSX 10.6.7.
