can the LaCie be connected to the newer Mac?
or does it only connect to the older iBook G4?
is it being sold along with the iBook?
if it can be connected to the newer Mac we can securely erase it
let me know
Dear McMurphy Steve,
Sorry, went out eating and drinking w good friend. I know you'll understand :)
Hope it was very enjoyable!
Sorry for all the crazy starts and stops. Maybe I need to be in the Cukoo's Nest! Anyway, La Cie will not plug into MacBookPro. It's a firewire. That's some different concept than USB, correct? So, if I can't erase it, how can I dispose of it?

Dear How's That Christmas Shopping Coming Steve,
Hey, thanks! Personally, my favorite is the hammer delete. I'll do it sometime when I'm frustrated about something- which will probably be over something with Just Answer! lol
New topic-- do you have Netflix? I just re-joined b/c they said they now have lots of streaming choices. So, I fell for it. You can imagine, the one I really want to see is recent episodes of Revenge. Well, the only option they have for streaming Revenge is 2011 episodes Bummer, bummer!! Do you think that's a copyright agreement Netflix had to do w the TV network, ABC? I also wanted to see a miniseries called Boardwalk Empire. Has great reviews. It's from the HBO people. It's not on Netflix at all. again. On the birght side, tho, I understand there is a gizmo I can buy at the overpriced Apple store that will show streaming things fm iPad (or computer?) onto TV? Do you know that device? What all does it plug into? Wall and iPad? Wall and TV?
I'm Fini Holly
Dear You're Such a Guy, Shopping on Christmas Eve Steve,
I do need to look at hulu.com. I know people who use it. is there a fee?
Ok- Apple TV. Got it.
Have Fun at the 24 Hour Stores Holly
Dear It's Always Five O'clock Somewhere Steve,
Ahhh, yes, 'tis the season. Always bring your patience anytime you leave the house. "Twill all be over soon , except for the profit - counting.
OK- now I do remember about hulu. I think the free version also has adverts and amybe the paid one doesn't. I need to check it- maybe I should switch fm netflix to paid hulu.
For Christmas, I'm going to a place in Connecticut that doesn't have wireless internet for guests like me. (Gasp!!!) So, if I happened to want to watch anything fm Netflix on my iPad, I'd need to make my phone be a hotspot, then the iPad gets data fm the phone (I've paid for a modest plan to do that) However, a streaming video is what I'd be watching and that uses up enormous amounts of data, right? So, I really can't use Netflix w/o wifi available, is that right?
Apple TV After Paying for Everyone Else's Christmas List Holly
Dear Shaken Not Stirred Steve,
Glad you survived mad store rush. Hope Father Christmas was good to you and that you enjoyed the day
Re: data, I think I finally understand the concept. But I'm not sure, so, send smileys and can you clarify ...
Hooray, Revenge Is Back Jan.6 Holly
Hi and Happy New Year Steve,
Hope the smiley face and proper credit goes to you.
I don't think I rec'd an answer fm someone else. Another Expert can't see this thread, tho, right? Only the Big Brothers at JA...
Muddling Through Boring Winter Holly
Dear Frosty Steve,
Snow?? Really?? What a rarity! We haven't even had enough snow to trudge through.
Take day off ... make snowman. Better than work, tho doesn't pay as much.
Global Warming Hit New Jersey Holly
Dear Corncob Nose and Eyes of Coal Steve,
Yes, I recall snow and England were not a good combination. If you can't put an umbrella over it, it's a challenge.
Earlier, you mentioned someone had grabbed my question to you. I guess if expert doesn't respond in timely fashion, JA puts our questions out there for everyone?
Which reminds me, in the good old days of JA, we customers could even put in a preference w each question for how long we were willing to wait for answer- everything from 15 minutes to two days, as I recall. I still think JA is becoming less user friendly than more so!
Here's a question for a smiley face ... I have very old Microsoft Office discs. Do you think I could re-install them on this computer and thereby get back the use of my old email program, Entourage? Tho old, it's still the best out there! You don't think it's possibly available for cheap as a download sans discs, do you? Actually, I think it's now Outlook, not Entourage, right? And it has bad reviews, I think.
Finally Seeing the Sun Today Holly
Unless the Director Needs a Spooky Mood,Then They Bring Out the Buckets Steve,
A snowman-- we may not be able to do that at all this winter.
Do you use Outlook on a Mac or a PC? Do you like Outlook better than Apple Mail?
I Have a New Question to Move On To Holly
Greetings, My Long Lost (I know, That's My Fault) Computer Savvy Expert,
How are you? Snow finally gone? Still winter-y here, tho sun out today (just like always on TV!)
Two iPad questions for you. Both are really dumb, but since you're so far away , I won't see you laughing at me. Just send me the smiley faces when we're done so I can use my unlimited subscription
OK, here we go:
1) On my music icon app- iTunes- I once loaded in XXXXX XXXXX's DaVinci Code from local library's CD's to listen to in the car. It's crazy boring and would put me right to sleep so I don't want it after all. As you know, there's a zillion chapters and I don't want it taking up the space. Dumb question is: How do I delete it? Every time I hit one of the chapters, Dan B starts his sonorous reading and I don't see an option to delete.
2) when I play anything on my music list and I want it to stop, I hit the parallel lines at the top. and sound stops. But - on some- and only some selections, the title and artist continue to scroll across, above the bar that indicates time elapsed. Why only some, and - app is still using battery power even if I've stopped sound whether scrolling is happening or not, right?
It's scary, isn't it, that people like me are allowed to use such high tech equipment with so little knowledge?
Still Loooving Revenge Holly
