Hot Topics in TidBITS Talk for 18 January 2010

by Jeff Carlson

In this week's TidBITS Talk discussions, readers chat about syncing files between Macs; solve a color display issue using the Universal Access preference pane; ponder why MobileMe doesn't work with some versions of Internet Explorer; consider using the iPhone as an infrared remote; share resources for low-vision users; and, at least for one reader, prepare to travel to another country to save money buying a new MacBook Pro.


Syncing Files Between Multiple Macs -- Readers suggest many ways to keep one's important files synced between two Macs. (34 messages [1])


Accessing MobileMe with Internet Explorer on Windows -- Apple limits MobileMe on older versions of Internet Explorer, which can be inconvenient when accessing the service using public computers. (2 messages [2])


13" MacBook Pro - box dimensions -- A reader plans to purchase a new MacBook Pro in another country, because even with airfare the cost will be less than what Apple will sell it for in his country. (5 messages [3])
