Like every other electronic device apart from those using monochromatic e-paper, trying to use it in DIRECT sunlight will be highly problematic. Should work just fine under a shady tree, however.

There will, inevitably, be a sale. You should treat yourself though, and watch the remastered episodes of classic Star Trek. The updated effects, very tastefully done, really bring the show into the...

The OP pretty clearly said that they do, in fact, back up to Time Machine, Nick, so it would seem to me that they have a backup that's entirely useable.

The problem comes from the fact that the...

Unless you've given someone BOTH physical access to your machine AND your admin password, you don't have a keylogger installed on your Mac. That's PC thinking.
