This is typically an issue where an Adobe Reader/Acrobat install or update has installed browser plugins causing the PDF previews in a FileMaker solution to crash the application. Claris FileMaker uses the system's default web browser PDF viewer to show previews in Container fields. On Macs, this works much more reliably when set to Preview. The steps that most often fix this issue are: Go to Finder Go to Folder: /Library/Internet Plug-Ins Delete files "AdobePDFViewer.plugin” [...]
After a recent switch to a new cell phone provider, our iPhones popped up the Unable to Download App message whenever trying to install an app or run updates. Unable to Download App "Facebook" could not be downloaded at this time. We do share an Apple ID between the phones and I initially thought it was related to the new SIM cards or something along those lines. Every once in a while I could see [...]
If Google Chrome, Microsoft Office 2011 applications like Word, Excel, Powerpoint & Outlook or other third party apps start crashing or hanging immediately at launch after upgrading your Mac to the new version of Mountain Lion, Mac OS X 10.8.5, there is a quick fix that can avoid troubleshooting.

We all love to use Netflix and share it with others in our house. But sometimes other people's watch history can make a mess of your history and recommended titles. No more with the new Netflix profiles that arrived this week on the Apple TV.
The Daylite 4.3 update is another huge step forward for Marketcircle's business productivity software for Mac and Daylite Touch for the iPad and iPhone. The full list of feature additions and bug fixes is huge and can be viewed in the release notes. We've highlighted some the features that have been most sought after.

We decided our MakerBot needed a little brother, so ordered up an Eggbot kit from Evil Mad Scientist. This video shows the assembly process. It takes less than an hour to put it together with great online instructions. We wondered: What could we possibly use it for? Does it even work? Once we hooked it up to an iMac we found the truth — It's awesome! You need X11 or, for Mac OS X 10.8, [...]
