How do you guys Handel not having Flash? I have a pc running vista ( sucks ). I also have an iPad.
What are you talking about? Handel is a composer and iMacs "have" flash.
iMacs display Flash with the typical Apple behavior of the fans spinning up.
You are mistaken, Macs can and do use flash.
Its iOS devices that do not.
lay off him, he just thinks that all apple products can't do flash.
Macs can do flash, it will all work well for you.
beat me to it.
Um...I don't handle not having Flash. I use flash on my iMac.
Apple chooses not to use flash on their iOS products to save battery life. Their desktop computers do not have a battery.
Their laptops are still able to use flash, but their batteries are also tremendously huge. Flash probably wouldn't be the the most demanding thing a full-fledged computer user would be doing anyways.
Flash is a disaster. I can't wait until it is decommissioned forever.
The better question would be, how do people handle having Flash? Yeccchht.
Steve - is that you?
Don't be silly, Steve is in heaven now.
Thanks I don't know what IOS is, but my iPad must have it because I can't open some video links.
Correct. iOS is the operating system on the iPhone, iPad and iPod Touch devices and it does not support flash. Flash does work on the desktop OS X (iMac and MacBooks etc).
Yes. iOS is the touch-screen based operating system on the iPhone and iPad. MacOS X is the desktop based keyboard and mouse system on all the other desktop and laptop computers Apple offers.
Cool. Now I have to find a 21 " iMac that I can afford.
Check the refurb section on the Apple website if you want to save some money but want one that's good as new with a full-year guarantee.
I am sorry. But i have many questions about switching from windows to imac
1.How can i move all of my pictures in Picasa to imac.
2.I need to move a spreadsheet from Microsoft Works to imac.
These two are the most impotent,all of the other stuff i think i can figure out.
My primary laptops are Macs, yet I also work and live in a cross-platform environment. My Macs run far too hot, and noisy on flash.
A great solution is to use my ThinkPad w/ Windows 7 which runs flash for hours if needed, cool, quiet, and effortlessly. It's not even something one thinks about. Flash on Win7 just works perfectly.
The photos should be simple - export them from Picasa to their native format (.jpg for example). Copy those to some sort of removeable drive, or to a cloud-based service. Then copy them back to your new iMac (iPhoto).
As for your spreadsheet, you'll need some short of spreadsheet software on your Mac. I use Excel, and it can open spreadsheets created on Windows computers with no issues.
Flash works fine on my 2008 iMac as well. Not sure why you're having so much trouble.
I am not familiar with Picasa, but you just need to export the photos from Picasa to an external drive or USB key of some sort then you can import them into iPhoto on the iMac. There is also a Mac version of Picasa if you want to continue using that app. I found this link that explains how to move from Windows Picasa to Mac Picasa if that is what you want to do.
I don't believe the MS Works spreadsheet format is supported on any Mac spreadsheets apps (at least none I could find). Can you open the files in MS Works then export them in the .XLS Excel spreadsheet format? Excel files can be opened in any Mac spreadsheet app including Apple's Numbers app.
Hay thanks guys. You all just gave me a lot to digest. I am buying an iMac today. With all of your future help I feel comfortable about this change.
It's only a disaster on OSX. It runs incredibly well on both Windows and Linux. The excuse that Flash doesn't run well because Adobe can't code, or won't put effort into the smaller user base doesn't really hold water when Linux also runs it fantastically, like Windows. It's just an OSX thing.
Good for you! I bought the 21.5" 2.5 GHz back in November and slapped 8 more gigs of RAM in her. It is an awesome machine!
I beg to differ...
I own a mac and a PC
anytime any I go to a flash based website, fans start spinning like crazy. Be it the old Mac or the new PC.
HTML on the other hand...
So, that's kind of bad, no?
