    Lots of urban myths in there, Sue. My SIL's brother is an ER doctor. He has been in that practice for over twenty years. Never turned away a patient because they could not pay. Hospitals will treat...
  2. Nick, I didn't ask, and I really don't care a lot...

    Nick, I didn't ask, and I really don't care a lot if it's new or not. The case is flawless, the screen is also flawless. The warranty is 90 days, so if I have any issues I can get it worked on. I...

    Ian, the idea of checking with Experimax today was kind of a long shot. I called to see if they had a similar laptop, but they said they thought they had the part in stock and when he quoted the...

    If the machine is that new, and if Apple suggested reinstall the OS, and you don't want to do that, then there is nothing more to say here. The fact that "someone on another forum" said they tried...

    Go to Apple.com, click on "Support" and follow the screen prompts to get to an Apple tech support person. You can use Chat, it works really well. They are very responsive and generally pretty...

    Is it still in warranty? If so, contact Apple and get support. That is not how it should work.
  7. I don't doubt that others may have the issue, but...

    I don't doubt that others may have the issue, but I'm running Catalina and I don't have the problem, so it has to be something in YOUR system that is triggering the behavior. And given that a new...

    Bob, the external monitor worked perfectly, so it was definitely NOT the GPU at all. Just the MBP display screen. There were several posts on the Internet with similar issues. No known fix other than...

    OK, so I called the local Experimax store, they had the part and the repair price was lower than the cost of the part itself from ifixit. Dropped the Mac off, ran some essential errands, came back a...
  10. MBP mid-2015 screen vignetting

    This morning when I woke up my MBP, the screen stayed black (cue ominous music) but the external monitor worked perfectly. Thinking a bit got lost somewhere, I rebooted and on start up the screen was...

    Two possibilities: Although dated earlier, the message didn't actually get sent until just before it was received or your internet provider didn't deliver it on time to either the smartphone or your...

    Just out of curiosity, a really simple question. Don't be offended by the asking, but how do you quit your applications? The red "X" does not shut down the app, just push it into the background,...

    Today is my daughter's birthday and yesterday was my granddaughter's birthday. My wife was going to take them out to tea at a tea room about 40 minutes away, but that has been closed. However the...

    Ashwin, if you look at the screenshots the process names repeat for multiple users. Therefore it's worth at this point looking at the files and what is in them to see if those names are there. If...

    Sadly, yes. Working on Plan B in November, praying that this is behind us by then. Virgin Atlantic is letting us rebook with no fees, but some of the cottages we had rented are not so flexible, which...

    Easyfind, as suggested in post #4, will look inside the app for any reference to those kinds of things as well.

    Here in Virginia we are also on a sort of lockdown, with all but "essential" businesses shuttered. Right now in our immediate county there are 4 cases, none in the city proper. I'm about 100 yards...

    Two lessons learned

    Learned two lessons in the last 24 hours. Thought I'd share just in case anybody sees similar things.

    1. MBP screen didn't sleep. I have my MBP set to turn the screen off after 3 minutes...

    You might look for DetectX Swift, instal lit and run it to see if it discovers anything. Also, as this is an older system, have you had it from the beginning, or did you get it from someone else? It...

    Been there, done that, Rod. I've been spill chicked before.

    Never had a "+" version, but it's never been on any iPhone I ever had. iPad, yes, iPhone, no.

    An Abdullah backup is "a full backup" that gets slaughtered by spell check and missed on re-reading before posting.

    If you adopt a typing techique closer to piano playing the trackpad doesn't get touched as much. In this technique, keep the wrists up, off the machine and curve the fingers more. It might be...
