    Sunday Video Chat December 7, 2014
    After a one week break the Mac-Forums video chat is back. 7:00 p.m. Central time as usual.

    Look for tips controlling media playback speed in QuickTime, a possible fix for corrupted Word documents, and whatever else comes to mind.

    Thanks. I actually enjoy doing the chats.In the future I hope to pull in other members to help out. It's much more fun when others are involved as well.

    The ones that Dave and I have done together work well but he apparently expects to be able to travel around the country enjoying retirement. What's up with that?

    Liquid and computers don't mix. It might seem simple, but we see an incredible amount of people post here about spills. Keep drinks and other liquids away from your expensive electronics!

    Hi Sly... - just Susan & I for the New Year's celebration - planning on a 'snack' dinner on the Eve (cheeses, smoked salmon & trout, and caviar w/ a bottle of the bubbly), and then wife is roasting a pheasant the next day, and I have another bottle of sparkling wine already chilled!

    Hope all went well w/ the chat - Dave

    Mac-Forums Sunday video chat 2/8/15
    The Mac-Forums Sunday chat is back this week. 7:00 p.m. tonight as usual.

    We'll have a few OS X tips, an IOS tip or two, and the usual roundup of forum content. Haven't decided on the specific tips but they'll be ready by chat time.

    Chat summary, including links, will be posted sometime tomorrow evening (about 6 p.m). I'll post the info here and on the Youtube page.

    A bit later than anticipated but here are the links to the content from last night's chat.

    You can keep Spotlight active so that it doesn’t get hidden by the window you are working in. Click on the magnifying glass to make Spotlight appear. With the Spotlight window visible do a long long-right-click on the magnifying glass in the menubar. The blue box around it will stay and so will the window. Keep Spotlight active

    If you are making OS of your Mac to answer Phone calls you can change the ringtone in Face Time preferences. Change your Mac's ringtone
    IOS Tips

    IOS 8 has changed the way autocorrections for typing errors are presented. If you want to go back to the old way of autocorrect, simply swipe down on the new gray bar to hide it. Returning to the “new” look just swipe back up. Bring back the "old" look of autocorrect on IOS devices.

    Apple has lifted the 1,000-photo limit in iCloud. Everything you snap / save will automatically sync and appear on all your devices. Just head over to Settings > Photos & Camera and toggle on My Photo Stream. Photo Stream Changes

    Under iOS 8 you can delete parts of your browsing history by going to the history menu and tapping Clear at the bottom-right. Ypu’ll see options to get rid of everything from the past hour or day. You can even delete a single item by swiping over it.

    You can start certain IOS apps from the lock screen. With location services active you can open an apps from the lock screen when you walk into say and Apple store or Starbucks. As with the camera icon, just slide up and you’re in business.

    Apple hasn’t stopped improving the iPhone camera hardware and software. Among the recent changes in iOS 8 is a feature giving photographers new exposure controls. Tap the screen the way you normally would to focus, and a new slider will pop up that lets you fine-tune the exposure.

    Hi Sly - tonight are the Oscars beginning for me on the east coast the same time as your show - Except for The American Sniper, I've seen all of the nominated films for 'Best Picture', a rarity (but I guess an advantage of being retired).

    SO, I have a vested interest in watching the show which I use to avoid if I'd not really seen many of the movies - I'm a BIG film fan going back to my days as a young boy - own about 700 commercial optical discs (half are Blu-rays), and have 'burned' a similar number of DVD-Rs off the TCM network over the years (public domain is great, as is having a DVR!).

    Hope all goes well tonight for you - Dave
