How can I keep synchronized my macbook pro at the office and a traveling macbook air?

How can I keep synchronized my macbook pro at the office and a traveling macbook air?

Have you tried doing the sync via Time Machine?
I thought it would be possible to backup the travelling machine and restore the machine at the office from the new backup.
I read a warning from Apple that it is not advisable.
I would be very interested in your opinion.

  • How can I set up Cinema Display as a main screen and leave my macbook pro as a second screen instead?

    How can I set up Cinema Display as a main screen and leave my macbook pro as a second screen instead?

    I learned that the Dock is positioned at the chosen edge of whatever Display is positioned farthest to that side.  E.g. for the Dock to be positioned on the right side of the Cinema Display (instead of the right side of the MacBook), the Cinema Display must be oriented (by dragging) to the right of the MacBook monitor on the "Arrangement" tab of the Displays Preference Panel.

  • I dropped my macbook pro on the floor and I wanted to see how much it would cost to get a bent corner on the lid to get fixed.

    I recently dropped my macbook pro from the couch and it fell on the floor that was about a foot down. Nothing really major happened except for that the same area where the screen is, on the exterior of that there is a slightly bent corner. I really wanted my macbook pro to look in good condition and I wanted to know if there is any way I can repair this or do I have to replace the whole lid. I would also like to know how much it would cost. Please Help!

    Apple Genius Bar will know better, even if you did show us a picture.  We are just users like you.
    I would start keeping very regular backups regardless.

  • I bought a MacBook Pro in the US and I am wondering what adapter I would need to plug it in in Spain, can I just put the USB in the iPhone charger?

    I just bought a MacBook Pro in the US and I was wondering what I need to charge it in Spain, do I just need to put the USB in the regular iPhone charger or do I need anything special?

    For Mac: Just a pin converter for your charger.
    For iPhone: connect to your Mac or use the pin converter and charge using the wall power adapter.

  • My Macbook Pro shows the apple and spinning wheel at start up but won't continue startup. Any Help would be appreciated.

    My Macbook Pro shows the Apple and spinning wheel at startup but will not continue the startup. Does anybody know how to get past this, so the computer continues to startup?

    Take each of these steps that you haven't already tried. Stop when the problem is resolved.
    Step 1
    The first step in dealing with a boot failure is to secure your data. If you want to preserve the contents of the startup drive, and you don't already have at least one current backup, you must try to back up now, before you do anything else. It may or may not be possible. If you don't care about the data that has changed since your last backup, you can skip this step.   
    There are several ways to back up a Mac that is unable to boot. You need an external hard drive to hold the backup data.
         a. Boot into the Recovery partition, or from a local Time Machine backup volume (option key at startup.) When the OS X Utilities screen appears, launch Disk Utility and follow the instructions in this support article, under “Instructions for backing up to an external hard disk via Disk Utility.”
    b. If you have access to a working Mac, and both it and the non-working Mac have FireWire or Thunderbolt ports, boot the non-working Mac in target disk mode. Use the working Mac to copy the data to another drive. This technique won't work with USB, Ethernet, Wi-Fi, or Bluetooth.
    c. If the internal drive of the non-working Mac is user-replaceable, remove it and mount it in an external enclosure or drive dock. Use another Mac to copy the data.
    Step 2
    If the startup process stops at a blank gray screen with no Apple logo or spinning "daisy wheel," then the startup volume may be full. If you had previously seen warnings of low disk space, this is almost certainly the case. The easiest way to deal with the problem is to boot from an external drive, or else to use either of the techniques in Steps 1b and 1c to mount the internal drive and delete some files. According to Apple documentation, you need at least 9 GB of available space on the startup volume (as shown in the Finder Info window) for normal operation.
    Step 3
    Sometimes a boot failure can be resolved by resetting the NVRAM.
    Step 4
    If you use a wireless keyboard, trackpad, or mouse, replace or recharge the batteries. The battery level shown in the Bluetooth menu item may not be accurate.
    Step 5
    If there's a built-in optical drive, a disc may be stuck in it. Follow these instructions to eject it.
    Step 6
    Press and hold the power button until the power shuts off. Disconnect all wired peripherals except those needed to boot, and remove all aftermarket expansion cards. Use a different keyboard and/or mouse, if those devices are wired. If you can boot now, one of the devices you disconnected, or a combination of them, is causing the problem. Finding out which one is a process of elimination.
    Step 7
    If you've booted from an external storage device, make sure that your internal boot volume is selected in the Startup Disk pane of System Preferences.
    Boot in safe mode. Note: If FileVault is enabled, or if a firmware password is set, or if the boot volume is a software RAID, you can’t do this. Post for further instructions.
    Safe mode is much slower to boot and run than normal, and some things won’t work at all, including wireless networking on certain Macs.
    The login screen appears even if you usually log in automatically. You must know your login password in order to log in. If you’ve forgotten the password, you will need to reset it before you begin.
    When you boot in safe mode, it's normal to see a dark gray progress bar on a light gray background. If the progress bar gets stuck for more than a few minutes, or if the system shuts down automatically while the progress bar is displayed, your boot volume is corrupt and the drive is probably malfunctioning. In that case, go to Step 6.
    If you can boot and log in now, empty the Trash, and then open the Finder Info window on your boot volume ("Macintosh HD," unless you gave it a different name.) Check that you have at least 9 GB of available space, as shown in the window. If you don't, copy as many files as necessary to another volume (not another folder on the same volume) and delete the originals. Deletion isn't complete until you empty the Trash again. Do this until the available space is more than 9 GB. Then reboot as usual (i.e., not in safe mode.)
    If the boot process hangs again, the problem is likely caused by a third-party system modification that you installed. Post for further instructions.
    Step 8
    Launch Disk Utility in Recovery mode (see Step 1.) Select your startup volume, then run Repair Disk. If any problems are found, repeat until clear. If Disk Utility reports that the volume can't be repaired, the drive has malfunctioned and should be replaced. You might choose to tolerate one such malfunction in the life of the drive. In that case, erase the volume and restore from a backup. If the same thing ever happens again, replace the drive immediately.
    This is one of the rare situations in which you should also run Repair Permissions, ignoring the false warnings it may produce. Look for the line "Permissions repair complete" at the end of the output. Then reboot as usual.
    Step 9
    Reinstall the OS. If your Mac was upgraded from an older version of OS X, you’ll need the Apple ID and password you used to upgrade.
    Step 10
    Repeat Step 9, but this time erase the boot volume in Disk Utility before installing. The system should automatically reboot into the Setup Assistant. Follow the prompts to transfer your data from a Time Machine or other backup.
    Step 11
    This step applies only to models that have a logic-board ("PRAM") battery: all Mac Pro's and some others (not current models.) Both desktop and portable Macs used to have such a battery. The logic-board battery, if there is one, is separate from the main battery of a portable. A dead logic-board battery can cause a boot failure. Typically the failure will be preceded by loss of the settings for the startup disk and system clock. See the user manual for replacement instructions. You may have to take the machine to a service provider to have the battery replaced.
    Step 12
    If you get this far, you're probably dealing with a hardware fault. Make a "Genius" appointment at an Apple Store, or go to another authorized service provider.

  • How can I view my full billing history for the app and music stores without iTunes installed?

    I just received an email receipt from Paypal showing a $12.99 purchase from iTunes. I almost NEVER purchase anything over around five dollars in the app or music store. Since PayPal does not show what this purchase was for, I have not received the receipt from Apple yet, and I cannot find anyway to look up online what this purchase was for....I need help to find out ASAP what this purchase was. If my account has been compromised or if I have been incorrectly charged for something, I would like to get the issue handled immediately. I do not want to install iTunes on my PC (nor should I have to for Pete's sake), but I cannot see anything recent at all in my app or music history on my iPad (not that I would ever purchase anything for $12.99 anyway...I just don't). Thanks in advance for any tips!

    If the machine was upgraded to Lion 10.7.x by the original owner then you bought an illegal license of Lion and also of any other applications that the seller  said came pre-installed, this assumes the seller did not include original install media. In that case you need to contact the seller for the original install DVDs that came with the machine re-install up to Snow Leopard 10.6.8 and then purchase Mountain Lion ($20) and the applications you want or need. If the seller cannot come up with the original install discs then you can buy them from a nominal cost from AppleCare..

  • How can I view just music - not videos - in the libary and playlists?

  • Flash Builder 4.6 - How can I keep unit test classes out of the finished swc?

         I have a library of code I'm building and I'm working on unit testing but I have a major issue. When my finished swc compiles no matter what I do it includes the unit test classes as part of the intellisense if you load the swc via flash. The classes aren't really in the swc since if you just try and import them they'll come up undefined. They only appear to go into the intellisense for the swc. Does anyone know how can I keep this from happening in the finished source? Currently my folder setup is like this in flash builder.
    src\main - source documents for the library to get compiled
    src\mock - mock class area for unit testing
    src\test - unit test classes
         In the project Properties panel > the first tab of my Flex Library Build path I have selected only the src\main folder for the classes to inlude in the library. No other folder paths are selected.
    The "Flex Library Build Path" doesn't change my results with any setting.
    Thanks,

  • How can I find out what is running in the background and running my batterie down

    How can I find out what is running in the background

    Hi simpbarby,
    Welcome to the Support Communities!
    The links below will help you understand what apps are running on your iPhone.  You can quit the ones that you aren't using.
    iOS: Understanding multitasking
    http://support.apple.com/kb/ht4211
    This link will provides tips to conserving battery life:
    Apple - Batteries - iPhone
    http://www.apple.com/batteries/iphone.html
    Optimize Your Settings
    Depending on how they are set, a few features may decrease your iPhone battery life. The tips below apply to an iPhone running iOS 7.0 or later.
    Enable Wi-Fi: Having Wi-Fi enabled helps consume less power when doing activities that access data. Go to Settings > Wi-Fi and log in to a Wi-Fi network.
    Adjust brightness: Dim the screen or turn on Auto-Brightness to extend battery life. Turning on Auto-Brightness allows the screen to adjust based on lighting conditions.
    Fetch new data less frequently: The more frequently email or other data is fetched, the quicker your battery may drain. To fetch data manually: Go to Settings > Mail, Contacts, Calendars > Fetch New Data and tap Manually.
    Turn off push notifications: Apps with Push Notification alert you of new data, which may impact battery life. To disable, go to Settings > Notifications, choose the app you want to disable, and do the following:
    Change Alert Style to None.
    Turn Badge App Icon off.
    Turn Sounds off.
    Note: New data will be received when you open the app.
    Minimize use of location services: Apps that actively use location services, such as Maps, may reduce battery life. You can see which applications have recently used location services by going to Settings > Privacy > Location Services.
    Use Airplane Mode in low- or no-coverage areas: Your iPhone always tries to maintain a connection with the cellular network, which may use more power in low- or no-coverage areas. Turn on Airplane Mode to increase battery life in these situations.
    Viewing Usage StatisticsKnowing and understanding your iPhone usage can help you better manage your battery life. To view your iPhone usage statistics, go to Settings > General > Usage. Under “Time since last full charge”:
    Usage: Amount of time iPhone has been awake and in use since the last full charge. iPhone is awake when you’re on a call, using email, listening to music, browsing the web, or sending and receiving text messages, or during certain background tasks such as auto-checking email.
    Standby: Amount of time iPhone has been powered on since its last full charge, including the time the phone has been asleep.
    I hope this information helps ....
    Have a great day!

  • How can I keep my apps (several unauthorized) on my ipod and computer synced?

    Most of my apps were bought by an account I do not have access to anymore. I have a new Macbook. My old PC where I used to sync my iPod was authorized by this account. All these apps are in that PC and on my iPod. Obviously I cannot authorize my Macbook because as I have said, I cannot access the account anymore. It's a long story but basically, I can't.
    Now, I have transferred all apps that I purchased by an account of mine (different one) that has athorized my new Macbook. Transferred from my old PC to new Macbook (actually just the apps I decided I still wanted). By the way, I haven't synced the apps yet on my new Macbook. So this is how it all looks like: The apps that I need (purchased by my active account and the other one) are all on my iPod; All the apps on my new Macbook (purchased by active account) are on my iPod; The "unauthorized" apps are all on my iPod and my old PC.
    When I try to sync the Macbook and my iPod, I cannot because it tells me I will lose these hundreds of apps (I'm not sure if it's because tey are unauthorized and/or the ones on my Macbook are supposed to replace the ones in my iPod). My goal here is to just allow both devices to sync smoothly everytime without losing any data. It can be the unauthorized apps stay in the iPod but it can still sync with the Macbook. Although if you have a way the unauthorized apps to be transfrred to my Macbook then all the better.
    So how can I attain that?

    So what I've done was delete all existing apps in my new Macbook and transferred all apps from my old PC to the new one. It was successful...until I try to sync it. This message comes up:
    This computer is no longer authorized for apps that are installed on the iPod “Lauren”. Would you like to authorize this computer for items purchased from the iTunes Store?
    If you do not authorize this computer, 137 apps, including “...™”, and their data will be deleted from this iPod.
    So I have all apps on my iPod and my Macbook. Only problem is the Macbook cannot be authorized so whenever I try to sync them, it "threatens" to delete all "unauthorized" apps from my iPod.
    Oh, and if I continue, I'm guessing those apps and their would really be gone from my iPod, but will they stay on my Macbook and sync the next time I try to sync them? Though if that works I still bet I will lose all data from my apps...
