  1. Minecraft hardware question

    Hi all, I was wondering if anyone else has a child who plays Minecraft on a PC or Mac. My son currently plays on my old Gateway running Windows Vista with 3 GB of RAM and a 250GB hard drive. He's been complaining about it saying he wants a new laptop. He's says he doesn't want a Mac Mini cuz some of the Modpacks don't run as good on Macs as on PCs. Does anyone know anything about this? Is there any truth to his claim about this? Just wondering if anyone else has had any complaints/problems running the game/modpacks. Thanks for any info! Jeremy
  2. Hi All, I was wondering if converting my music files from their current format of mp3/mp4 in iTunes to AAC? Just trying to save some space on my Mac and also my son's Gateway laptops. I have about 6,000 tracks, plus some audiobooks. thanks, Jeremy
  3. Wanted: Cloud storage without the syncing!

    Either file transporter.com or look into WD MyCloud systems. I have a 2 TB MyCloud I bought for Christmas for $130 and it works great. I can stream my music files and photos from anywhere. Just need to access your router and plug it in. After initial setup and uploading your files, you can give other people access to it, limiting their input and what they can see, it works great. Just a thought. Hope this helps. Jeremy
  4. iPhoto help from MyCloud

    Hi there, I just bought my first MBP. I got the 15" Retina display, 16 gb RAM and 512 HD. I also have a WD MyCloud that I got for Christmas. I've put all of my iTunes media and photos onto the MyCloud, but I can't seem to view the photos in iPhoto. Some Questions I have: Do I have to import all the photos into iPhoto to see them or can I just view them and leave them on the MyCloud? If I or my wife wants to edit them, do we have to import them, edit, and then save them back onto the MyCloud? Thanks for any help in the future! Cheers! Jeremy
  5. Graphics or no graphics for iMac

    Hi all, I have a question and I don't seems to know the answer. Do I need the graphics card for the iMac or no? I really don't do alot of video editing but need something to edit some videos. Seems simple enough but I can't seem to know which one is best. thanks, Jeremy
  6. iMessage Problem with iOS 7

    Both. Seems it's the plant where i work. I have a hard time sending in certain spots. Maybe it's Sprint and maybe it my plant. Works fine sending text messages but iMessage seems to stall out or work sometimes. 7.1 update has helped a bit.
  7. Internal or external?

    WD just released their My Cloud external hard drive. There's 2TB, 3, and a 4TB option. It works as a NAS and that could be an option. The 2 TB starts at $149 at Best Buy. Just a thought.
  8. iMessage Problem with iOS 7

    I'm still having a problem with iMessage when I'm at work. Maybe it's the steel around me or the carrier, idk, but I keep having to send a text twice or get it twice from my wife. Anyone else having this issue? I'm current on all my updates. any suggestions?
  9. FLAC files into iTunes

    Sweet! Thanks!
  10. FLAC files into iTunes

    Hi all, I was wondering if there's a way to transfer a FLAC file into iTunes? I downloaded a cd from a friend and it's in FLAC and I cant open it in iTunes. Is there a way to import it or convert it into something usable? Thanks. Jeremy
  11. Buy now or wait? Apple products.

    I'm looking at getting my first MacBook Pro soon as I payoff a few things. I had a few questions about what to buy and where to start. 13" vs 15"? where do I start? Time Capsule worth the money for a backup or can I use my Seagate 1TB Hard Drive? What about buying refurbished Macbook Pros? What is the advantage to going this way besides saving $300 or so? Has anyone bought a refurbed MBP? Input welcomed. Thanks. Jeremy
  12. Breaking into the Macworld

    Hi there, I just wanted to say how much I enjoy listening to the podcast. I have a few questions for all the Mac Geeks out there. I'm looking at taking the plunge into buying my FIRST Mac. 1. Which 15" Retina display with the graphics card needed or just better to have now? What about RAM? 2. Will I be able to transfer all my music, photos, etc. to a time Capsule before I put them on my Mac or just back it up? 3. Any recommendations about buying Office for Mac or will my Xcel and Word files transfer over? Thanks and keep up the great job! Sincerely Jeremy Sherman Sterling Heights Mi.
  13. Loosing contacts

    I would start a gmail account and transport all her contacts there then import them back into her phone. U have to set up a Microsoft exchange account thru gmail to use it. There are tricks on youtube. Just type in gmail contacts to iphone. That's what I've done. Hope this helps. Jeremy
  14. Mounting an iPhone in the car
