    Looking at the beautiful, heavy packaging, you think these headphones are going to be heavy. But once on they are comfortable and light – you can even forget they’re there at all.

    The slim Beats Solo HDs ooze sophistication and sexiness. Their ultra-gloss exterior finish, which is also scratch resistant ...

    How many times have you found yourself browsing on the iTunes Store or anywhere on the web for new music releases? I'm looking for the latest releases all the time and it's often only by coincidence that I find something from a favourite artist of mine, which makes me think about all the music I must be missing out on. Apple itself has tried to fix this in the past with their own “My Alerts” feature in the iTunes Store, but isn't particularly prominent or intuitive. Nomis is the latest solution, and may well be the greatest too.


    As soon as you open Nomis you know this is an app where its developer knows interface counts for everything. I've chosen to mention this first because the app is probably better defined as a widget – much like Apple's own Stocks or Weather apps, Nomis has two main navigation and one information screen, so if your interface sucks it's going to become very apparent, very quickly.

    Brother in laws 3,1 had similar issue and it turned out to be a failing power supply.

    I've also read that oxidized ram riser cards can cause

    Siri not working properly for music anymore

    A lot of Siri's requests aren't handled locally on the phone. They're passed to the cloud service...if it worked when 8.4 came out, then I'd say it's

    Indeed, the problem may well be the video card. Yet it could be faulty connectors — they become a little oxidised over time. So work all the connectors

    Mac Pro won't Boot

    Try another video card first before resorting to a new logic board - I agree with recd that the nVidia 8800 is a more likely failure point

    Sounds like logic board, but have you tried to boot with the PCIE SSD card removed and/or with the graphics card removed. The nvidia 8800 graphics card,

    Its honestly like most Apple software these days. Missing features because of a "ground breaking from the ground up rewrite", Justification

    Ok, I've repeated history, and have gone back to Aperture again. Photos had photos missing, iCloud library didn't work with my library which is larger

    Another inexplicable thing. I backed up my photos while they were referenced in Dropbox and took about 90% of 1 Tb (even though photos say 1.1 Tb). But

    Ok so I'm a sucker for punishment. Last night I had another go, using a different tack. I decided to consolidate all my referenced aperture files in aperture
