One workaround that I see a lot is to ask your workplace for a dedicated work phone - if they expect you to be reachable outside of office hours, then they've likely got some legal obligation to provide this. When you're not working, turn it off. On the other hand, if you can't just let go of work when you get home, that is a whole different problem and ...

I think this Running iReport on OS/X with Oracle JDK7 may be telling you that it isn't compatible with Oracle's Java. You can download the last OS X Java release (see Java for OS X 2014-001) which is usable on OS X 10.7/.8/.9. It appears you could then use jdkhome to point to the Apple Java release.

This appears to be a bug with enterprise distribution in iOS 8. If you updated to iOS 8 and had an app with the same bundle identifier installed (i.e. the same app) then you'll be unable to install the app. A workaround is to change the bundle identifier in the distribution plist. This doesn't require the actual bundle identifier of the app to change, just ...

I don't believe there is one app to do what you want, but a combination of the following should do it. RCDefaultApp is the old stalwart of extension/mime/creator code and many other types of mappings. In the transition days between Mac OS 9 and X, I used this extensively to deal with all of my files with Type and Creator Codes. For more complicated file ...

You can try the following commands to fix that.

Step 1: Automator tasks Create an Automator task, and save it (take note of the task file location). You probably want a couple Automator tasks in this case (one to mute and one to unmute). Here's a very basic mute script: set volume output volume 0 And unmute: set volume output volume 100 After you've created both Automator task files, Step 2: ...

You can use an OS X app like Reflector or AirServer to make your Mac simulate an AirPlay display. Then you select your Mac as an external AirPlay display on your iPhone. AirServer and Reflector provide features to record the output. OS X 10.10 Yosemite has an iOS screen recording feature built into QuickTime.

I was reading all of these and started to follow the path as I too had loads of email junk contacts. Once I opened the Contact page and clicked groups I noticed three choices...

With iOS 8 and OS X Yosemite, you can just connect the iPhone to your Mac and it will be available as a video camera. Then you can record video using QuickTime.

I've had good luck with Acrobits Softphone... it's a SIP soft phone for iOS. Once you have an appropriate VoIP/PBX account that supports SIP clients, you can use google chat to get your calls into the PBX. It definitely has some noticeable lag, but it is certainly better than nothing. You can get a free VoIP/PBX account at pbxes.com (I have no ...

The Concentrate is the closest to the Insulator. It is not free but you can downland a 60 hour trial. There is no guarantee, but since it i a paid app it is probably going to be compatible with Yosemite. The Focus Time is probably better option since it requires OS 10.9 or later and it cost less. Available true Apple Store.

Updates are generally processed faster than the first submission of an app for review, but not drastically faster. It's usually around a day shorter (5 days) compared with the average 6 or 7 days for a first submission. Note that iOS 8 has caused an increase in submissions and a consequential increase in review times; Apple may be prioritising updates more ...

The only way to run multiple, separate instances of Terminal is by launching them with the command line open -n -a "Terminal" -- understand that this isn't a great way to run things that aren't meant to be run like this. There are shared preferences and plist files being used by these instances so you may run in to trouble. The reason Fluid works so well is ...

Run this in your Terminal to clear the Launcher. sqlite3 ~/Library/Application\ Support/Dock/*.db "DELETE from apps; \ DELETE from groups WHERE title<>''; DELETE from items WHERE rowid>2;" \ && killall Dock When this is done, you will have a marvelously blank Launchpad interface, so to add your applications again all you have to do is ...

The short answer is it depends... most apps will store it in ~/Library/Preferences/. For example, on Mavericks the Preview recently used list is in ~/Library/Preferences/com.apple.Preview.LSSharedFileList.plist You can use the terminal/commandline plutil to see what's in there: plutil -p ~/Library/Preferences/com.apple.Preview.LSSharedFileList.plist If ...

Apple's servers were very overloaded with the iPhone 6 preorders. http://www.apple.com/support/systemstatus/ The official system status page for Apple shows that things have cleared up, so most people with problems installing or downloading things can reboot their devices and then try again to get proper download and purchase behavior.

Your HD storage space is the limiting factor There is no reasonable limit to the file size of Photo Booth video's. Photo Booth stores video's with AAC audio and H.264 video compression. Video will take the most storage space. The H.264 uses a lossy video compression method. The amount of compression is usually defined by the amount of motion in your video. ...

Try Signing out & back in to the Store - from Store menu. I've seen it happen on iPhones but not a Mac; but that was the cure on the phone. I've also heard that the Store was having problems due to the volume of people trying to pre-order the iPhone 6 - so maybe just wait it out if you can let things settle for an hour or a day.

It appears that the Apple Store is having problems. Using the http://istheapplestoredown.com/ shows it to be online, but they had some recent problems with the flood of iPhone 6 pre orders and had to take it down on Thursday. So be patient.

In general most programs place files within the App icon, which is really a special folder for the Applications files. Many also add files within the Application Support folder within your library. Simply drag the Application icon to the trash, and empty it. Then open your Library folder (you might have to click on the "Go" menu item in Finder, while also ...

This is indeed possible. If the generic app of yours won't change in any aspect (logic nor interface) between the different customers, you could just use different Targets in Xcode. In each Target you'll be able to set different names and use different Provisioning Profiles to publish the App. In the same way, if all the Provisioning Profiles you'd be ...

Apple App Store accepts only International Credit Cards. I experienced the same issue when I used a debit card on my iTunes account. Do check that your credit card is authorized by your bank for international usage. Also check that your credit card platform is either Visa/MasterCard/American Express. Diners' Club and Discover may not work everywhere.

I tested copying 8.95GB worth of files and folders and you do get a timeout. The best thing you can try is to add a timeout clause to the code. When I did this it worked ok. I gave the script 30mins.

I'll state the obvious one: Outlook:Mac supports Exchange natively, including support for Exchange's categories (which Exchange uses instead of tags) There are third-party add-ins like MailTags which add support for categories/tags to Apple Mail. Thunderbird + ExQuilla doesn't support categories/tags.

A good alternative to Postbox would be the Thunderbird. made by the FireFox makers. It can work with exchange server.
