    Hi, I use an LG 4K monitor that works like a charm when I use HDMI directly with the Mac Mini 2020. Would like to use a Sonos Beam soundbar and in order to do that, I'm using an HDMI switch audio extractor. I wondered if I could get the audio to work but to my surprise, there's no video...

    MacBook Pro 16 GPU Switch Issue

    Noticed that when I start photoshop or any software that runs the dGPU the screen will sometimes (not always) flash black and sometimes twice to the point where photoshop will "encounter a problem with the gpu" and will disable gpu acceleration. If photoshop is open this flash will also occur...

    Back to Android again

    I really like iPhones and iOS. I dislike the pricing. Bought a iPhone 7 (within our budget) months back for the wife and I. We both were having the notorious no service issue. It would come and go but was super annoying. Surprisingly my wife was the one that said she wanted a different phone and...

    Carrier Switched Carriers After Pre-Ordering iPhone...

    Last Friday, I pre-ordered a new iPhone. I enrolled in the Apple Upgrade Program and selected Verizon as my carrier. Long story short, I switched to T-Mobile yesterday, but my phone will arrive with a Verizon SIM. Being that phones shipped directly from Apple are unlocked (with the exception of...

    Anyone else considering switching to Samsung s10 or Note 10?

    I've only owned an iPhone since the iPhone 4 and have never considered switching to android until recently. Many friends and family have gotten the galaxy s10+ and they won't stop raving about it. Sure, there are ecosystem things that I'll miss (apple watch integration, iMessage on laptop), but...

    Super Mario Maker 2! (And post your levels!)

    Super Mario 2 is at least, if not more than I had hoped! I think it offers phenomenal amounts of play, especially how much better it is from the original WiiU/3DS version and all the user-created downloadable courses! I finally bought into the Switch Online service; and I even got the...

    All Devices Switch Pro Controller/Joycon Support

    I was wondering if anyone else may hope for this support now that we have PS4 and XB1 S controller support in iOS13/tvOS. I know Nintendo previously shied away from playing nice, but since Mario Run it seems like they might be more interested in pushing mobile more. Is this something people...

    HomeKit Garage Door Opening By Itself

    I have a HomeKit garage door opener from Insignia that I bought on Black Friday sale last year. It had a lot of problems at first and bricked itself, but the newer device with the newer firmware seems to be running okay now. But I'm wondering—is it possible for a geofence to incorrectly detect...

    Home Wemo/Ring Integration Help

    So I recently bought a pack of Wemo mini outlet switches because they announced HomeKit support. Well, that was a bit premature as I'm still waiting for the update, but another reason why I was waiting for Wemo is the integration with Ring (which has been promising HomeKit for ages). In the Ring...

    HomeKit accessing non-smart but automatic blinds through homekit / arduino

    What the title says, basically. I have pre-installed automated blinds that work with 2 switches, up and down. Is it possible to install an arduino or a pi and enable them for homekit? Has anyone done this or heard of / seen such DIYs? Whenever I search for it all that comes up are...

    I just quit Apple...

    After waiting for WWDC in hopes of a decent hardware update, I just couldn't do it anymore. I found a machine with really great specs, easily upgradeable, and that has been performing like a beast for me. My work is primarily video distribution, so I help editors a lot. I love FCPX, but I also...

    Switching CPU tray from Mac Pro 2010 to Mac Pro 2012

    I just bought a Mac Pro 2010 12 core. The CPU tray looks like this: I was wondering if i could put it into my Mac Pro 2012 which is a 6 core. I am a video editor and i figured it would give me more RAM and make it run faster for editing. Am i able to do this? What problems would it cause?

    iPhone 8(+) Best way to switch from iPhone (with upgrade program) to Pixel?

    I got my iPhone 8+ in November or October as part of the Apple Upgrade program. I pay around $45 a month for this (instead of buying the phone outright) which is supposed to be for 24 months. I really want to switch to a Pixel 2 XL ASAP. What's the best option for doing this? I know I can cancel...
