Quick Tip: Backing up iOS to iCloud and iTunes simultaneously -

Although backing up your iOS device to iCloud is easy and intuitive, it simply isn’t enough for most users. Restoration of all the data on your iPhone, iPod Touch or iPad from the cloud is slow and time-consuming and restoration is limited to your most recent backup. However, backing up via iTunes lets you have your iDevice backups saved with Time Machine, allowing multiple restore points. From the iTunes interface it appears you have to choose either local or iCloud backup, but that’s not true. You can do both!

An iPod touch for kids and parents: one dad's guide

An iPod touch for kids and parents: one dad's guide -

I've been separated for about two years now; as any part-time custodial parent will tell you, it can be tricky to communicate with the kids when you're not around as much. This past Christmas I decided to get an iPod touch for each of my kids. At the time, they were living about 30 minutes away from me, and for whatever reason we didn't always have nightly phone calls to stay connected.

"If only there was some easier way to stay in contact," I thought, "then they won't have to miss me as bad." Well, the experiment has been a success. In the process it yielded a few interesting tips for divorced parents, and also anyone considering an iPod touch for a kid under 11 (as both of mine are).

I do recommend that parents think hard about getting their kids iOS devices before making the leap. Most kids I have met under 10 are not responsible enough to "own" an iPod touch without a lot of supervision.

Use the MacBook Air SuperDrive with (almost) any Mac

Use the MacBook Air SuperDrive with (almost) any Mac -

The Apple MacBook Air SuperDrive is only officially supported on the MacBook Air or Mac Mini, but what if you have another Mac that you want to use it with? Turns out you can make it work by editing one text file and then rebooting your Mac.

The MacBook Pro shown above is mine. The story behind that damage is fairly long and emotionally painful, involving airline travel, delays, and an unexpected layover in Vegas. The only good part of the story is that the SuperDrive did not work before it happened. When I purchased my MacBook Air, I bought the SuperDrive because there are still times when I need it. I knew that it was restricted to the MacBook Air (later expanded to the Mac Mini), and I assumed that there was a good reason. Maybe the USB port on the Air and Mac Mini sent more power than other USB ports. Maybe there was some other reason.

Thanks to the magic of the Internet, I learned about Lukas Zeller and his instructions on How to make the MacBook Air SuperDrive work with any Mac.

When I first read them, this involved getting editing a binary with a hex editor. Now, I'm a nerd, but I'm not a ├╝ber-nerd. I'm also really extremely very much opposed to hacking system binaries, kexts, etc. because it could cause all sorts of problems and whenever there is a new version of Mac OS X, your change is either going to get blown away or may cause problems or it may work. That is only a one-in-three chance of success. Those aren't very good odds. So I didn't do it.

Then Lukas also found an easier way which only requires editing one line in one text file ...

The Complete Guide to Backing Up Your Mac

The Complete Guide to Backing Up Your Mac -

Here's something no one likes to think about: backing up your Mac. It's an arduous task, but backing up your system periodically is important to ensure you don't lose data to hardware malfunction, human error, or software corruption. With multiple backups both onsite and offsite, you can keep yourself from becoming just another victim to data loss.

It is estimated that more than 140,000 hard drives fail each week in the U.S., and more than 2,000 laptops are lost or stolen each day. Don’t become a statistic. Read our guide and protect yourself from losing all of that precious information.

What You’ll Need:

>> External hard drive (we like these)
>> Carbon Copy Cloner
>> Backblaze

You should always have multiple backups of your computer, because one backup simply isn’t enough. At a minimum, you should have one onsite backup that you backup to daily; an offsite backup (stored off your premises) that is backed up weekly; and (optionally) an online backup solution that is kept up-to-date as much as possible. We’ll show you how to get started backing up with Time Machine, Carbon Copy Cloner, and Backblaze.

Backing Up with Time Machine

If you have Mac OS X Leopard (10.5) or higher, then you already have Time Machine. This is a “set it and forget it” type of back up solution that lets you plug in a hard drive and not worry about your backups until you need them.
