TidBITS#1287/31-Aug-2015

In this extra-helpful issue of TidBITS, we tackle three common problems. First, if you’re troubled by auto-play videos on social networks showing you offensive acts, Josh Centers has the advice you need to disable them. Second, if you anticipate migrating to a new Mac from a Time Machine backup, Michael Cohen offers solutions to many of the potential pitfalls that you might encounter, based on his own recent migration to a new iMac. Third, if your Wi-Fi network is dropping out or suffering from slow throughput, Glenn Fleishman explains how you can use a pair of Mac utilities to optimize its range and performance. Finally, Josh goes retro with a review of Pac-Man 256 in FunBITS. Notable software releases this week include VMware Fusion 8.0 and Fusion 8.0 Pro and PopChar X 7.2.
