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!
I previously reported that my Retina MacBook Pro often won’t recognize USB devices plugged into my Thunderbolt display when waking from sleep. Now I’m having a new problem. It won’t charge when plugged into the display.
Hmmm. The more I used my MacBook Pro (the new one, w/a 15″ Retina display), the more little glitches I discover. The latest is that the trackpad will just go crazy every once in awhile, making it nearly impossible to control the cursor.
Have you ever wished you could move the “Microsoft User Data” folder out of your “Documents” folder? It holds a variety of settings associated with Microsoft Office apps and thus doesn’t really seem at home amongst my actual documents.
Well, this sure is frustrating… I got a shiny new Retina MacBook Pro along with a 27″ Thunderbolt display to replace my dead mid-2009 MacBook Pro. It’s a great combo except that it has trouble recognizing USB devices plugged directly into the display.
About ten days ago, my beloved MacBook Pro died. It was working fine when I got up to grab some chow, but when I returned it was dead. It had powered down and was completely and utterly unresponsive. What a bummer.
