Over the last day or so, my MacBook Pro was being a little glitchy. I thus decided to reboot it. But when I did, the menu bar was completely transparent (not translucent, transparent) and the Apple icon in the top right was missing.
I finally got around to upgrading my retina MacBook Pro (rMBP) to Mavericks (OS X 10.9). After waiting (and waiting!) patiently for the 5.3Gb download, the upgrade process was a snap. If only we had a faster connection!
We got an Xbox One for Christmas and I’ve been playing a fair amount of Madden 25 with our boys. One of our favorite things to do is to set up franchises in offline career mode and create our own teams via the fantasy draft.
My son’s iPhone 5 recently started giving him problems. While it was otherwise working well, it would stop charging when he would move the phone or bump/jostle the charging cable.
We have a Sony Blu-Ray/DVD player connected to a Panasonic flat panel TV via HDMI with the audio going back from the TV to our Denon A/V receiver via TOSLINK. It’s a nice setup, but the audio is out of sync (slightly ahead) when watching movies.
