Easy to do when the ATMs run on Windows XP and earlier.

Thanks, angeldeb82 :) I upgraded my flash thanks to you!


So I'm using the public beta Yosemite, Apple's latest operating system version 10.10. The non-beta version should be available sometime in the fall (rumored to be in October). So far, I'm liking it. The interface is more streamlined, and there are a lot of features that are really cool. The only bugs I've found so far is that in addition to beta Yosemite, there is a beta iTunes ver. 12.0 that is to be used only with beta Yosemite. I have found volume levels too low that can't be adjusted, and I had to restore my iPhone from backup - no videos were restored unless I went to an older backup made under iTunes 11.x running Mavericks (OS X ver. 10.9.x). At least I'm getting used to the new OS interface and the new iTunes interface before it is released in a few months.

My advice to anyone with a Mac who wants to try it out now: Make a clone of your current computer on an external hard drive, try out beta Yosemite and beta iTunes; but don't put too much content on it. Delete your computer and restore it from the clone. As in all betas, both Yosemite and iTunes are unstable. Stick to Mavericks and iTunes 11.x for now :)

Flash will forever keep crashing on Facebook, and no amount of upgrades will fix it. :lol:

iOS 8 comes out on Sept. 19th.

Two new iPhone 6's: iPhone 6 and iPhone 6+ (two different size screens).

Both iPhones will come with iOS 8, and work with an accessory called: Apple Watch (separate pricy purchase required). The watch will come in three styles, and multiple configurations with different watchbands. The watch will work with the iPhone's GPS, and also receive messages from Message, FB, Twitter on the watch. Or read an email on the watch and reply on the iPhone. Also, an app for your health works with the watch. Sensors read something (I don't know what) on your wrist, and if you use the watch for the new service called: Apple Pay, and you take the watch off, you have to initialize it again to prevent fraud from someone stealing your watch and trying to use it.

So Apple will have four Operating Systems in use now:

1. For the desktop or laptop: Mac OS X, currently Mavericks (ver. 10.9.x) and soon to be (in October) Yosemite (ver. 10.10).

2. For the mobile device (iPhone, iPod Touch, iPad): iOS 8

3. For the watch, not a condensed version of iOS but another dedicated OS called: Watch OS

4. Another dedicated (and unnamed) OS for Apple TV.

Thanks, angeldeb82. My flash player was out-of-date, even though my settings include for flash to update by itself automatically. Thanks for the headsup :D
