RE: QuickTime & Yosemite: Recording Your iPhone or iPad Screen with iOS 8

Aw, thanks, Ian. I'm very happy you enjoyed it!

RE: iOS: Forcing iCloud Contacts & Calendars to Sync

Hey Mike, It might be time to take some more drastic steps. Have you tried logging out of your iCloud account on your iPhone and then logging back in? If not, that would be a good place to start—but be sure that you've backed up your important iCloud data first (instructions are here: If that doesn't help, I would consider restoring my device if I were you. Sorry you're having trouble. :( —Melissa

RE: iTunes 12: Changing Media Shortcuts on the Mac

Hey Paul! You're welcome! Thanks for reading. grin I'm not filled with seething hatred for the last couple of versions of iTunes, but I'm sure not a huge fan. I find that a lot of folks experience what you did—the interface isn't as intuitive, so whereas longtime Mac users just "know" where to find things in most programs, iTunes' differences make it…difficult…to do so. Apple giveth, and Apple taketh away, I suppose. —Melissa

RE: OS X: Opening System Preferences with the Function Keys

Hey wab95! I'm the opposite way—I use shortcuts whenever possible, as I'm just much faster with them than I am with the trackpad. Perhaps I too need some sort of "Clockwork Orange"–esque desensitization program to teach me that it's OK to take my hands off my keyboard. But the suggestion that you could ask Siri about Mac keyboard shortcuts is a GREAT idea. If I had the tiniest shred of pull with Apple, I'd tell them to do that! —Melissa

Agreed, Mike! It's very frustrating to me when details like this get overlooked. :(

RE: OS X Yosemite: How to Bring Back Calendar's Separate Window for New Events

Hey Polimon, Do you have "Open events in separate windows" already off? If so, you wouldn't be having this problem. So far I've seen four Yosemite Macs have this same issue, but if you're not experiencing it, then perhaps it's only affecting some folks. It certainly was irritating me. wink —Melissa

RE: iOS: Save Your Hearing with the "Late Night" EQ Option

You're welcome, wab95! Hope you're able to get your daughter to…er…*listen* to you. wink
