It definitely does not work in 10.6.8 and Preview 5.0.3.Hi Ros (and everyone else having difficulty), Yes, it does work in Snow Leopard and with Preview 5.0.3. Here's a video I just made demonstrating the process: https://vimeo.com/81206839
I recently replaced my laptop drive with a “Hybrid” drive from SeaGate. I know this has some flash memory on board, is it safe to defragment that?
According to Seagate, you shouldn’t defrag hybrid drives. The primary benefit of a defrag is that it makes reading frequently accessed data faster because the drive head doesn’t need to jump all over the platter to read the bits. With hybrid drives, at least in theory, these frequently accessed files will be automatically moved to the solid state portion of the drive, limiting the benefit of a defrag.
Do you know if this will work for photos imported to the iPad from SD cards with the Apple adapter?I don't have an iPad adapter to test with so I can't say for sure. If the import process puts the pictures from the SD Card into your iPad's camera roll, it should work fine. If it imports them into an "album," then it might not work. Another way to test it: if you open the imported picture album on your iPad, do you have the option to delete them when you press the "Edit" button? If yes, they should…
I’m in the middle of updating the same machine. You wrote that you’ve used a W55 Xeon instead of a X56? As far as I understand the W xeons are fr single use only is tat correct?Sorry, after reading your question again, it looks like you're mixing up two generations of Xeon processors. For my upgrade, I used 2008 Gainestown-based CPUs, where the W series is the highest TDP and performs better over the X series. (W5590) It seems you're referring to the X series from the 2010 Gulftown and Westmere-EP parts. In this lineup, the W series is…
I’m in the middle of updating the same machine. You wrote that you’ve used a W55 Xeon instead of a X56? As far as I understand the W xeons are fr single use only is tat correct?No, the letter designations primarily distinguish the chips based on TDP, with the W series having a max TDP of 130 watts and the X series at, I believe, 95 watts. Both will work in dual-processor configurations.
Eric, While I agree that it's always ideal for a company to include screwdrivers, the following statement (quoted from the review) still holds true:
While OWC normally includes any required tools with its products, the Envoy Pro comes without the necessary Torx T–5 screwdriver. The logic behind this decision is that those using the Envoy Pro will almost certainly have purchased an Aura Pro, which includes the Torx T–5 driver.As OWC has the only shipping third-party SSD for the rMBP, the only way anyone would ever purchase the Envoy is if they've already bought the Aura Pro SSD. It…
Jazz, So glad we could help you out! I'm relieved to hear that your data was recoverable.
This was amazing. Especially the pirates pleading for help on the forums: "Is there some way to avoid [going bankrupt due to piracy]? I mean can I research DRM or something?" Giggles.
Although the very early prerelease builds of what would become Chrome OS were actually built on Firefox, there isn’t currently an official way to use Mozilla’s browser on a Chromebook.
However, there have been some breakthroughs in getting Linux installed on the Chromebooks, so if you’re willing to swap Chrome OS for a version of Linux, you can run Firefox and many other Linux apps that aren’t available natively.
