Hot Topics in TidBITS Talk for 14 December 2009

Send Article to a Friend

Old Mac technology continues to be a focus for TidBITS Talk readers, as this week we discuss ways to use an aging HP scanner under Snow Leopard, installing Rosetta for Eudora, networking an old printer, and erasing a 1 GB SCSI hard disk (we like the hammer idea). Also this week, a look at iPhoto '09, comparing BusyCal and BusySync for synchronizing calendars, and a surprising discount on MobileMe in an Apple retail store.


MobileMe Renewal--Apple Retail Store matches Amazon -- Amazon has in recent years offered a worthwhile discount on MobileMe service (which can be used to renew an existing account). One reader discovered that Apple would match the online price when he brought it to a representative's attention at an Apple retail store. (1 message)


BusyCal vs. BusySync -- Both of these BusyMac programs improve on iCal's functionality, but which one to choose? (11 messages)


AppleTalk missing in Snow Leopard? Readers discuss ways of using older printers now that AppleTalk is no longer supported. (4 messages)


Scanning capability in Preview vs. legal-size paper -- The scanning support built into Snow Leopard is a welcome improvement, but VueScan may be a better alternative for some. (2 messages)


iPhoto '09 -- Dissatisfaction with iPhoto '09 may be a result of not being aware of the program's many ways to view one's library and how its terminology has changed over time. (5 messages)


Running Eudora in Snow Leopard -- Despite not having been updated in years, Eudora continues to work in Snow Leopard, but requires the optional installation of Rosetta, which is nothing to worry about. (11 messages)


Help erasing old SCSI disk -- An old hard disk with a whopping 1 GB of storage faces destruction. Is there any way to access the disk's data to erase it or is a hammer the best option? (4 messages)
