  1. if those wouldn't go that deeply into your ear I'd love them, and the navy looks sleek as hell

    Ready When You Are Prestigious

    Bought a 1TB Samsung T5 SSD to do an external boot/run of my 2011.5 iMac after reading a post about it on PetaPixel. Already maxed out my RAM a couple years back and still don't feel like an upgrade is necessary yet. The extra 500GB will be helpful, and hope the speed increase is noticeable.

    Let me know how that works out for you. I'm still thinking about doing something similar with my iMac.

    Ready When You Are Prestigious

    Arrived about an hour ago, did everything according to this video and worked like a charm.

    I read someone couldn't get their SSD to work on the same MY iMac as mine but I had no issues.

    Start up speeds and app open speeds have greatly increased... definitely happy with the upgrade.

    Anyone have the newest macbook air? Been kind of thinking about upgrading from an older macbook pro.
  6. Also interested. I want a small easy computer to tote around the house. Never took to my iPad that much and I wanna run full versions of WordPress, photoshop, premiere, etc. not heavy photoshopping and editing but would love to work on my podcast on the couch and I prefer using a Mac to record podcasts

    sometimes the 'Favorites Mix' is on point, today is one of those days.

  8. I never use the playlists too much, but I’ll have to check them out and see if they work for me.

    Random thought, Apple Music on the iPad is just kind of meh :shrug2:

    hello. Supporter

    Agreed. Very meh.

    Do or do not, there is no try.

    I've pretty much always had both Apple Music and Spotify - always loved AM for my library, rare B-Sides and full discog run throughs. Always thought Spotify did playlists and discovery far better though. However my most recent AM "New Music Mix" is actually a bunch of new music I haven't heard of, and so far I've really like most of it (enough to add to a playlist to come back to and check out more). Spotify's DW and RR playlists have been so meh for weeks now.
  11. Welp my Apple Watch finally gave up on me. I got it as a birthday gift in late 2016 so I guess it lasted long enough? Idk the life span of these watches.

    The GPS during workouts crapped out months ago but now it just won't unlock at all. Reboots aren't even working :(

    Finally broke down and bought a Macbook Air (rose gold). Plan to use it for work and personal. Thankfully the dell docking station I have for my work laptop works with it, so no dongles needed to make it perfect for work.

    XR is sick, got the AirPods too, really comfy - normally the earbuds hurt my ears

    party over here, i’ll be over there

    Just got my first Apple Watch. Series 4, anything I should know?

    Anyone picking up the Beats Powerbeats wireless headphones? They're available for pre-order on Friday.

    I can't decide if I want those or the airpods.

  16. The Powerbeats look super awesome, but AirPods fit my ear perfectly so I don’t think I’ll spring for them. They do seem like a great option if AirPods don’t fit your ear, or if you want some noise cancelling since AirPods have none.

    Been putting my Air through its paces at work today. Was worried how it would handle running 15+ tabs on Chrome, plus 5+ in Firefox, alongside Outlook, itunes, multiple word docs and no issues. Might have helped I did spring for the 16GB ram, though.

  18. that's an extremely smart thing you did there, especially seeing how there's no way to manually upgrade it.

    Question for those who have Airpods. When the batteries die, does the music just play through your phone speakers? Or does the music completely stop?
  20. rxbandit89

    probably over-caffeinated. Supporter

    It just stops. You can have music playing on your phone, pop your Airpods in, and they'll pick up what's already playing. It doesn't work the other way around though.

    Ok cool, makes sense. Thanks

    Which should i get Airpod old or new version?
  23. rxbandit89

    probably over-caffeinated. Supporter

    I'm sure the old ones aren't easy to come by. Unless you can find them for really cheap, I don't see any reason why you wouldn't want the current version.

    This is a slightly random point. However, I was on holiday in NY just there and my gf pointed out how common it is to see someone wearing airpods. Over hear in the UK i seem to hardly really see people wearing them.

    Yea, it seemed to happen overnight. They're everywhere.
