I've been working at a prestigious private K-12 school in New York City for almost 30 years, and have set up and maintained every major Apple desktop (and a subset of Apple laptop) machines from the Apple ][ to the latest i7 Macbook Air.

comment iPod touch 4th generation will not charge, what might be going wrong?
Did she use the same cable on all 5 chargers, or did she use the cables already attached to the chargers?

comment Thunderbolt SSD or USB 3 SSD - Need an external SSD drive
Welcome to Stack Exchange Ask Different! I asked myself the same question a few months ago and went with an external LaCie Rugged SSD w/Thunderbolt for my MB Air and home iMac. I partitioned it so half was a Time Machine backup, and the other half for files I need whilst traveling, movies, iTunes music, games, etc. Time Machine ops from SSD <> SSD are blindingly fast, and games load very quickly. I like the rugged housing because I am a klutz. USB 3 can be extremely quick as well, but I fill my USB ports with other tools (Gig ethernet adaptor, wired keyboard, etc.)

comment Mac mini pages won't open after connecting iPad
Methinks attaching the iPad and these strange problems appearing are only coincidental. I can't think of a single reason why simply attaching an iPad to a Mac would cause problems like this. The only thing that might be the source is a faulty USB cable. Do these problems cease when the iPad is physically disconnected, or are the problems there always? When you tried this other account, was the iPad connected?

comment Keynote 6 Hijacking Launch Services?
I have yet to prove definitively that the iWorks apps change the LS database. It appears it does, but I don't have the skills (yet) to poke around and catch them red-handed. I just don't use the new iWorks. I've lived with the inane Software Update daily reminder by just dismissing the pop-up. I read somewhere recently that one can stop this by moving the iWorks 6 apps to an external disk, but I haven't tried it yet.

comment How do I AirPlay mirror my iPhone screen to my MacBook Pro?
I've added more precise information about how to use Quicktime Player on the Mac to capture the iDevice output into video. We've been trying to find a free app, but we've had no luck.
