    If we were to take that approach, we would have to recommend people leave their computers in their boxes and never take them out. Incautious and ignorant people will inevitably have problems. The...

    I'm talking about Mac Office 2011. You can create custom toolbars just as in previous versions of Mac Office. You can use these in addition to, or instead of, the built-in toolbars and/or the Ribbon.

    Snow Leopard, and probably Leopard, should be available from Apple over the phone.

    Not in stores, and not on the web. Call them (1-800-MY-APPLE in the USA)

    Your parents' credit cards were probably stolen from some site where they used them, not from their computer. If they buy something from, say, walmart.com, and walmart.com gets hacked, then nothing...

    Have you actually encountered any unsigned apps, or are you asking in the hypothetical?

    I would expect that most apps that are still supported would be signed by now.

    It shouldn't. It's pretty common for people with both Macs and PCs to use both to access their Exchange and IMAP accounts.

    Lotta text in this thread, but basically:

    You don't have to do things Apple's way, but if you choose to go your own way, you'll be on your own.

    Just let him rant. He doesn't want to help himself, and he doesn't want to go back to Apple. What else is there? Perhaps the computer gods will take pity on him, but other than that, there's nothing...
