  1. Have you got a recommendation, for a reliable, bootable, Mac, 512GB USB 3.0 thumb-drive ?
  2. If my new credit-cards, are RFID-near-field-capable, why do the gold-contacts, make contact, with the reader ?
  3. How does "DuckDuckGo", make money, and continue to exist, if I am not "tracked", when using their search-engine ?
  4. Apple may have gotten chintzy, and NOT sprung, for the Qualcomm communication-chips (instead, they used the inferior Intel chips) -- thus, the reception problems, which spoil the latest iPhones ! ( I don't know why, unless it is pure greed -- Apple certainly has the cash, to produce a decent product ) .
  5. I seem to have Turkish certificates on my Keychain, on my Mac -- should I be worried ?
  6. It turns-out, that there WAS a conflict, but I removed MalwareBytes, uninstalled Intego Premium X9, and re-installed, and re-authorized Intego Premium X9, and now Intego Premium X9, works significantly better .
  7. Hi. I've got both free_MalwareBytes, and Intego's VirusBarrier X9, running on a High Sierra MacOS v10.13.1 15-inch_Mid-2015_Retina_MacBook-Pro laptop . This shouldn't cause a problem, should it ?
  8. There was a recent Kim Komando quip, about an "Unbreakable" smart-phone-glass -- which model(s) would that be on ?
  9. I've been recently getting requests, for connection to TCP Port #554 (decimal ; outgoing) -- what does it do ???
  10. I found-out, that this port, is for some-sort of video-streaming .
  11. I have a mixture, of old, and new, CAT-5e Ethernet-Patch-Cables, with various demarcations on the cables, regarding EIA/TIA-568"A","B",&"C"-types . I'm trying to standardize . I've visited technical articles, online, but cannot decipher them . Can I ALWAYS use, the "C", variety ?
  12. The "AI Saves Eyesight" Kim's podcast, gets a "404-error" on iTunes !
  13. Has Amazon Prime, ever gone on sale, on "Prime Day" ?

    ???
  15. Haven't certain "backdoor"s, been linked to the inbound (to our computers), manifestations, of these ports ? ( And, what port, is SSHFS, on ? ) .
  16. What is the deal, with PC-compatibility, the netbios daemon, the samba technology, and (outbound [?]) port #s 137,138,139 & #445 ?   All I know, is that these ports were open on TCP & UDP (I think, outbound to my local network), until I blocked-them with the Mac third-party application called "Little Snitch" .    
  17. I have "Keynote", "Pages", & "Numbers", apps, on my Mac -- are these, a direct substitute, for "Microsoft Office" ?
  18. Thank you . Actually, I shouldn't have mentioned "Meltdown"-flaws, since, supposedly, THAT is now "patch-able", but a portion of the "Spectre"-flaws, is only correctable, in hardware . Please keep me posted, when hardware is available, that fixes this, as I will be in the market, to buy the fix !
  19. Are the new Intel "i9"-series of CPUs, to be affected, by the Meltdown & Spectre, flaws ?
