    iPad 2 and iOS 9.3.3, what to expect?

    Hello there, I have an iPad 2 I never upgraded past iOS 6.1.3, and while it's running beautifully and I jailbroke it (for f-lux), most new apps are now incompatible. I mostly still use Snow Leopard as an OS, and I already know using iTunes to upgrade iOS to the 9.x branch will prevent any...

    hanging up at user account screen

    Can I get a little help here from persons much more knowledgeable than me? I have a 2006 20" imac that was given to me in 2012. The hard drive crashed within a few weeks (horrible clicking, grinding sounds) and it has been sitting on my desk for 4 years. Feeling industrious the other day, I...

    Beefing up old iMac as Time Machine Server

    So today I dropped my external hard drive containing my backups and it's not turning on anymore. This got me thinking, carrying around my backups with me is kind of stupid (I travel quite a lot), so I had an idea: I've got a 2006 iMac at home, as well as a version of 10.6 Server which should run...
