    MBP Early 2015 13" SSD Upgrade, does it boost the device speed?

    Hi! I currently have an "old-but-powerful enough" MBP Retina 13" Early 2015. It has i5 processor, 8GB RAM, 128GB original SSD, etc. I would like to upgrade it a bit, the first thing is the SSD, I guess. I now have 55GB of free space, so I do not have so much trouble with free space on this...

    Bumble (dating app) install issue / possible hack?

    Hey guys, so I lately had a bunch of issues with my Samsung and had to restore several backups etc after failed firmware updates. Sometimes I lost a few apps, had to reinstall it, etc - it was a HUGE mess. I'm fairly certain at some point bumble downgraded me because I had so many...

    iPhone 13 Pro Max Android (Samsung Note 10+) to iPhone 13 Pro Max

    I was wondering what differences I can expect moving from a Samsung phone to an iPhone. I'm making the switch, phone ordered. I have never used iOS at all. I've seen I can still use Google Photos, since I have a decade of photos there I'll probably keep using it. I plan to keep using my...

    Samsung Nvme and super slow Boot on Monterey

    I have a configuration with OC and everything was working flawless until I've updated to Monterey Beta. The Beta runs quite well on my Machine, except booting time. It takes about 130 seconds from entering the password until I can see the apple desktop. I'm using a Samsung 970 evo m.2 Nvme...

    Prohibitory sign on RESTART after installing Samsung 870 EVO Sata 2.5" SSD on Mini Late-2012

    I'm trying to upgrade my late-2012 mini stock HDD with Samsung 870 EVO SATA 2.5" SSD.

    Other Will the iPhone 13 regular model stay competitive with other phones within the same price range?

    There haven't been many rumors around the 13 and 13 mini. Considering how other flagship base models such as the Galaxy S21 have 120hz screen, telephoto, 128GB base storage etc... Would the iPhone 13 still be worth it if rumors suggest that it has 60hz screen and the same 64GB base storage?

    How to transfer photos to iPhone 12 from Samsung Galaxy S9

    I'm making the switch from Android to iPhone, but I can't transfer my old photos without losing their metadata. When I transfer them over, the photos' dates get changed to the date of transfer, and I lose the photos' location data altogether. I still have the old phone (Samsung Galaxy S9)...

    Issues with Samsung (s27r35x) external monitors? (Air)

    My Macbook air M1 works fine with my AOC 27G2G4 monitor but my Samsung s27r35x turns on for 5 seconds then blank screens. The MacBook recognises the monitor is attached but the monitor is clearly in standby (flashing blue light). It is odd. The monitor seems to "crash". It can only switch...

    iPhone 12 Pro Why'd I switch?!

    So, I'll admit. I was bored. I've owned iPhones since the 4s. And the XS Max being almost exactly the same form factor since the 6....was kind of weighing on me. Nothing was new anymore. And when I looked at the 11 Pro Max, I couldn't get excited. So I bought a Note 20 Ultra. What a beautiful...

    Screen mirroring is a misnomer.

    Screen mirroring is a lie. Are there any apps that allow real screen mirroring? By which I mean that no matter what is on your phone it will be mirrored along with sound to your tv. This is not what “screen mirroring” does either with Apple TV or Samsung smart TV’s. Yes it will mirror your home...

    New Samsung X5 hard drive died almost immediately on a new iMac

    I've had my new iMac 5k Retina (3.6ghz Core i9) for about a week and it's been a great experience. Bought a 500GB Samsung X5 to use as a working drive for video/photo projects. Arrived today, I formatted it for Mac (as I had read was a good idea), no issues there. I moved a few video files to...
