  1. Bluetooth Problem

    Well, it's not really a problem because I have figured out what's happening (kinda). For months now, I've been having occasional problems with both the bluetooth mouse and keyboard on my Mid-2011 iMac. I knew it wasn't OS related because it happened before I upgraded to Sierra. Every so often, the keyboard or mouse would stop responding or just get flaky and not work right. I'd turn them off and reconnect and it MIGHT help. Eventually I figured out it only happened when I had my iPhone sitting on the desk. Then, I figured out it REALLY happened when my iPhone was sitting on the desk AND updating apps. Don't know why it happens but since I can reproduce the problem, I'm pretty convinced I have figured it out.
  2. Bluetooth Problem

    Actually don't know what model either is. They're Apple and old. So, do you know why it happens?
  3. Bluetooth Problem

    To quote Ed McMahon - "You are correct, Sir!" Just played a YouTube video sitting at the machine and bluetooth mouse went wonky until I quit.
  4. That time of the year!

    Happy Birthday, Adam. Hope you have a great day and another good year.
  5. "Messages" problem

    Check your Internet Accounts in System Preferences and assure your Message account is active. I had to say 'Configure in Messages' to be able to sign in properly.
  6. Reverting to earlier iOS?

    I have a couple apps that my iPhone has warned me will not work with 'future' updates of iOS. So, I am now hesitant to update to 10.3.2. Can I backup to my computer and then restore to a previous version of iOS or does the restore just get my data, etc. back? Thanks, folks.
  7. looking for some older games for 10.3

    And, if you want some REALLY OLD SCHOOL games, check out this - https://archive.org/details/softwarelibrary_apple_games Full emulation Apple ][
  8. Cant sync music library from itunes to iphone

    Have to say this is why I have never done Apple Music. I was having sync problems in the days before Apple Music and decided using it would make things even worse. I am very old school. I like owning my music and having it on my device. It's why I bought an original iPod.
  9. New life

    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
  10. New life

    Wow. Must have upgraded the license. Looks much different.
  11. 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.
  12. 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.
  13. 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
  14. iPhone no longer will connect to iTunes

    Glad to hear it worked out. Love Apple but have to admit that it really isn't "It just works" anymore
  15. iPhone no longer will connect to iTunes

    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
  16. iPhone no longer will connect to iTunes

    Have you updated iTunes lately? Another easy thing to try is using a different port on your Mac.
  17. All-in-one printer recommendation?

    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.
  18. Audio files from Mac to iPhone

    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.
  19. Happy Birthday Adam!!

    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.
  20. Upgrade question

    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.
  21. Cloud storage for my peeps....

    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
  22. about those Dodos

    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?
  23. Passcode required randomly

    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
  24. Memory upgrade

    OK, after a LONG time of sliding along with Lion on my mid 2011 27in iMac, I was forced to upgrade yo El Capitan so I could sync my new iPhone SE. It really seems slow now (was fine on Lion), so I'm thinking the 4Gb of installed RAM isn't cutting it. I have 2 empty slots and I'm wondering if I can put a couple 4 Gb cards in them or if since i currently have 2 Gb cards, do I need to put 2Gb cards in? Thanks folks.
  25. External hard drive disconnect

    I've found a couple similar threads on other forums. It seems to be related to usage of a hub but it's inconsistent. Take a look at this one - http://superuser.com/questions/21637/terminal-on-wake-mount-external-disk-automatically and this one http://forums.macrumors.com/threads/external-hard-drive-ejects-on-sleep.1417599/which mentions an app called Jettison which might solve the problem. BTW, Jeff, I'm in St Paul, too.
