Secure your Mac OS 10.13 computer from malware, criminals, snoops, and the whackadoodle ex. Concerned about being hacked? Your identity stolen? Your precious data stolen or encrypted? You should be. Hacking is a billion-dollar enterprise and everyone is a po...
What are you looking for your server to do? For just under $20 you can get Apples server app, which gives you DNS, DHCP, mail, print, ftp, vpn, file, netinstall, netboot, network user accounts, and more (not that you can run all services concurrently on a laptop - ram and cpu resources come into play.)
There are 3rd-pa...
First, I’m a bit pressed to see Apple’s Mail as a basic software solution. I believe it has hit the sweet spot of performance, features, and stability.
Ignoring that, yes! Outlook, Thunderbird, and almost all (maybe all) mail clients allow for multiple accounts.
Where you will see the one-account limit is with web-base...
He has a long track record of being on target more often than not, understands when I need time off, fairly smart, more than his fair share of empathy and leadership skills, and lets me sleep with his wife.
If you were to gather a group of 100 IT consultants and pose this question to them, you would likely receive 100 different answers.
Bottom line is that if the house is large (2000sq’ or larger), or has thick walls (such as adobe), metal mesh in the walls, or significant metal objects in many of the rooms (metal cabinet...
I may well have missed the memo, but as a Certified Apple Consultant and Apple Developer, I’ve never heard that Apple had such a motto, and it is nowhere to be found in their mission statement (I may not have the current statement).
When would you like Apple to move to the next generation technology? Just because you d...
When I started in the IT field (31 years back), I created a computer animation company. One of the first to use Macintosh systems. My Macs cost around $8K-$10K (in 1987 dollars). This was a bargain in a few ways.
First, the competing systems started at $50K. My systems were faster.
These blazing (for their time) machin...
Just do it! There isn’t a law (at least here in US) that mandates certification to be called a consultant.
That said, talk with an attorney, as there may be a client expectation of expertise, education, or certification. If so, you need to know how to preemptively deal with this before a lawsuit hits you.
BTW... This i...
The answer is in your question. If you permanently deleted a file, it’s deleted, and you cannot get it back.
iCloud is not a “business-class”, redundant storage system. Apple doesn’t provide backups for you - that is left to you, the user.
There are backup or cloud services that will allow you to recover "permanently d...
According to Apple (and the substantial evidence we have at hand), throttling is done based on the performance of the battery. As the battery ages, it is less able to provide for peak current demands. This can result in the phone shutting down.
To help prevent such events, iPhone 6, 6S, 6 SE, and 7 (with higher phone v...
Without getting esoteric options, we have:
magnetic hard drives
Slower than RAID or ssd
Faster than online
Solid state drives
RAID (comprised of multiple magnetic hard drives or solid state drives)
Faster than hard drives
Can be faster than solid state if combining multipl...
A: Your premise is in error. Independent testing has been performed that determined there isn’t any code within newer iOS systems that makes older units slower.
However, as with almost every OS and app upgrade, there are significantly more features and functions (most under the hood), requiring more cpu cycles. This ca...
Q: AS A CTO WITH OVER 8 YEARS SOFTWARE DEVELOPMENT EXPERIENCE, IS IT A PROBLEM THAT A JUNIOR DEVELOPER CAN WRITE BETTER CODE THAN ME?
A: As the President and CISO of my organization, both I and my company do well not because I can do my job duties better than my other staff, but because I’m smart enough to hire those w...
Q: APPLE PAY DOES NOT YET SUPPORT MY CREDIT UNION, HOW CAN I LET APPLE KNOW?
A: It isn’t that Apple Pay doesn’t support your credit union cards, it’s that your credit union has yet affiliated itself with Apple Pay. The credit union needs to do this, not Apple. Contact the leadership of your credit union to let them kno...
Q: I WANT TO START A LIBRARY SO THAT ANY ONE CAN READ, BUT WHERE DO I FIND FREE BOOKS?
A: If you are thinking digital books, the work has been started for you at Project Gutenberg.
If you are thinking physical books (paperback and hardback), these can be acquired from bookstores (damaged copies, overstock), and book pu...
Q: HOW CAN YOU PLACE YOUR EXTENDER TO YOUR ROUTER IN THE MOST PERFECT SPOT TO GET THE BEST WIFI FROM FAR AWAY?
A: The only proper way to use an extender is to connect it to the home base station via Ethernet. In this way you will realize full speed from the extender from up to 100 meters from the base station (or more ...
Q: HOW CAN I INSTALL ANDROID ON THE IPHONE X?
A: In a world over-populated with terrible ideas, this ranks in the top 10%.
The primary reasons for buying an iPhone include:
Continuous updates to the OS (for security and stability)
Working in the Apple ecosystem
And you want to toss all of this for ...
Q: HOW MANY SIMULTANEOUS USERS CAN A SINGLE ACCESS POINT SUPPORT?
A: This varies by device model.
Some low-end units can only support 10 concurrent connections. Mid-range consumer units around 50. Prosumer models such as the Asus RT-AC5300 can have a bit more than 200. Once you move up to professional model - such as C...
Q: WHICH OS, UBUNTU OR WIN 10 WILL MAKE MY LAPTOP LAST LONGER?
A: I hope you will forgive that I am side-stepping your question, as I think it is the wrongquestion.
Computers are tools. The purpose of a tool is to extend or expand your reach, power, speed, capabilities, so that you can do things you could not otherwise...
