    ok, actually SIX crashes. but never happened before today. am working, mail, or safari...and i get a beachball...and can't force-quit; EVERYTHING stops working. i have to shut down my macbook.

    here's part of the crash log; anyone have any thoughts? i've read that the iTunes issue has something to do with iOS8... but that doesn't seem to be the problem.

    Boot into Recovery Mode and in it use Disk Utility on your hard drive.

    Try a boot to safe mode and see if that stops the issue. Safe mode bypasses and login/stratup items and so you can eliminate that as the issue.

    What you are describing sounds like a bad drive though.

    Have you installed/changed any software or hardware that started this. If not, and you were just happily using your computer with no changes and this started on its own... sounds like a bad drive. Could be a bad drive cable or logic board etc also, but less likely.

    am concerned about the drive (an SSD i installed 2 years ago). i (!) wiped my drive, am re-installing the OS clean, then will install my essential apps, move my files back. if it happens again…it probably IS hardware.

    if so, next stop: genius bar.

    thanx...
