    Mac Create and monitor virtual serial port

    I got a piece of code written in Python that interacts with different devices through a serial port connection. I usually run in on a Raspberry Pi (e.g. /dev/ttyUSB0 port) or PC (e.g. COM0 port).

    CarPlay Non-Wireless Carplay w/ Portless iPhone. How will it work?

    Hello everyone! I am looking to buy an Apple Carplay aftermarket system for my car. Obviously, I would want it wireless, but even after 4 years of CarPlay, there's just a handful of models available, and prices don't ever go down. It crosses the $1 000 CAD line, which I don't think is a good...

    How long before Apple ditches Lightning port completely?

    Just curious. A year or maybe two or three? How long before Apple ditches their proprietary lightning interface completely from all of their devices that currently use it?

    I own a 2016 Macbook Pro, purchased new about 5 months ago. It has suddenly stopped recognizing flash drives and external hard drives which are plugged into the USB-C ports.

    Open Port Question

    MBP USB Port stopped working-options?

    My Mid-2014 MacBook Pro Retina's right USB port stopped working. I tried the SMC reset and the NVRAM reset. It seems the only thing left to do would be to replace the logic board which is a $300ish job. I don't want to that and I'd like to keep this laptop around for longer so I'm thinking I can...

    MacPorts

    There's not yet an installer, there's standard advice to build from source. I thought first of the Subversion approach and there's https://guide.macports.org/#installing.macports.subversion but there's no svn with build 16A319 of the operating system, so I went to...

    Is there a way to get a new port?

    I'm not very tech savvy at all, so please forgive me if I sound incredibly ignorant. In a moment of clumsiness, I dropped my macbook onto the floor while going to pick it up. So far, it still runs smoothly. My audio and charger ports still work fine, however the USB port has become warped. I...
