Apologize for three week delay in posting.



Resizing an image in macOS using Preview


Open the image using Preview. From the Preview menu bar select Tools > Adjust Size. An information window will open.





There are six units if measure available. We're using pixels.





Select “Scale proportionally.” If you change either the width or height, the other value changes to maintain the proportions.
If not, it will unlock and image will distort.





Note - Previously reduced width of this image so not stretching screen then staff removes.



I'm changing the width.

GLBT Chatter forum - you'll want to reduce the width to approximately 900 - 1,000 pixels or risk having the image removed or your post wiped empty.






Type in desired dimension and the other will automatically adjust. Click OK.





The sample displayed is not the dimensions you selected. You'll see the resized image after saving then opening again.

I happen to work for Apple as a senior technical advisor. Will try to chime in to help out now and again. iCloud Drive and the new Files app has really helped me to store my submissions and post them in the submissions form on my iPhone since I use it more than my Mac to read and browse Lit. You can store native Mac files from things like Pages, Numbers, and Keynote etc, but you can also do it for MS Office files too.

PS. I sure as hell don’t want work finding out that I’m a member here and dealing with that so no I will not give away any personal information related to my job or who I am so don’t ask. General questions I’d be happy to answer as well as some tech support stuff

This is more a service rather than the Apple products.



AT&T more than doubles 'administration fee' on post-paid phones, tablets and smartwatches


AT&T could add some $970 million to its annual revenue by increasing from 76 cents to nearly $2 an "administrative fee" that shows up as a line item buried deep in customers' monthly bills.

This fee not only impacts monthly cell phone subscribers, but those using cellular service on watches and tablets as well. That includes users of the new Apple Watch Series 3 with LTE support

In a research note, AT&T is looking for new ways to increase revenue after spending $85 billion to acquire Time Warner, then turning around to spend more to acquire digital advertising company AppNexus.






And as Ernestine said in the early 70's

Been wasting time figuring out how to put this together but you'll say something if you have a question or problem.


Repair 101 - Restart




Few weeks ago received a phone call that their keyboard stopped working. I said to restart and let me know if it didn't fix the problem. They argued had just turned on their Mac two hours earlier, however it fixed their problem.

When you restart your Mac it's reset, wiping away anything that was happening previously, which can often fix problems by resetting things . Of course, this doesn’t mean the problem won’t reoccur. But this fresh start often removes the offending gremlin, at least temporarily.



Mac Plus in Gremlins 2: The New Batch




Then last week I had a problem have only seen a few times in years. First my Mac was acting sluggish and choking doing simple tasks. Usually it's something with a web browser, however didn't see anything. Checked Activity Monitor but didn't see anything suspicious. Then by chance noticed the majority of my available storage had vanished.




In approximately an hour two thirds of my available storage space was used. Based on where the files were, didn't care what and why they they were created and I was confident the files would be deleted.






Restarted and Voilà!

Yeah, I tend to go a couple of weeks between reboots and usually when I do reboot it's only because I need the 10 GB of space that's been eaten up by temp files.

My 2012-model MBA is starting to show its age and I want to upgrade, but the options are underwhelming right now. A lot of the new features from recent years feel like a backwards step for me (don't take away my MagSafe dammit!) and the performance improvements don't look that impressive unless I fork out thousands for a MBP. Hoping for better news soon.

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Australia_Tax

The .au Apple store has new model MBPs starting at AUD 2699, almost exactly $2000 US :-/ The older model (pre-touch-bar) starts at AUD 1899. If anybody knows a legit Australian vendor selling them for significantly cheaper than that, I'm all ears.

IT'S OFFICIAL: Apple is the first US company worth $1,000,000,000,000 (AAPL)


Apple achieved this milestone by hitting a stock price of $207.05 and above in intraday trading today, giving it a market cap slightly over $1 trillion, based on its 4,829,926,000 outstanding shares as of July 20, 2018, which the company disclosed in its quarterly 10-Q filing with the SEC on Wednesday.


Tuesday Apple announced its fiscal 2018 third quarter ended June 30, 2018. The Company posted quarterly revenue of $53.3 billion and net income of $11.5 billion. It now has $243.7 billion in cash on hand.



A bit of history:

October 6, 1997: Michael Dell makes an infamously bleak appraisal of Apple’s fortunes. Asked what he would do with Apple, the founder of Dell Inc. says he would “shut it down and give the money back to the shareholders.”



It may not be the last laugh, but on Friday afternoon (January 13, 2006), after the close of the stock market, Steve Jobs, the chief executive of Apple Computer, shared an e-mail chuckle with his employees at the expense of Dell, a big rival, reports the New York Times. The message was prompted by the 12 percent surge in Apple's stock price the past week, which pushed the company\'s market capitalization to $72.13 billion, passing Dell's value of $71.97 billion.



Then Dell announced on February 5, 2013 that it had struck a $24.4 billion leveraged buyout deal.













The top five U.S. publicly-traded companies, based on market value, as of market close 08/01/2018:
1. Apple (AAPL) – $990.401B
2. Amazon.com (AMZN) – $876.554B
3. Alphabet (GOOGL) – $840.191B
4. Microsoft (MSFT) – $816.570B
5. Berkshire Hathaway (BRKA) – $496.417B

Selected companies’ current market values:
• Facebook (FB) – $495.591B
• Walmart (WMT) – $260.382B
• Intel (INTC) – $225.063B
• Disney (DIS) – $167.958B
• IBM (IBM) – $131.728B
• Adobe (ADBE) – $121.441B
• Tesla (TSLA) – $51.081B
• Hewlett-Packard (HPQ) – $37.058B
• Spotify (SPOT) – $32.088B
• Sirius XM (SIRI) – $30.788B
• Twitter (TWTR) – $23.929B

Forgot I had these.



We've heard "A clean desk is a sign of a sick mind".





Albert Einstein famously quipped, “If a cluttered desk is a sign of a cluttered mind, of what, then, is an empty desk a sign?” While the Nobel laureate was obviously advocating for the benefits of cluttered desks, he likely had no idea that his question would inspire researchers decades later…and that those researchers would eventually give him an answer.

In a study published in Psychological Science, a team of researchers headed by Kathleen Vohs found that working at a tidy (Einstein would say empty) desk influences people to be more conventional, more generous and to make healthier choices. But, perhaps more interestingly, working at a cluttered desk positively influences people’s creative thinking ability. It appears Einstein was on to something.



A couple more creative minds







You may have seen this picture before made into black and white, which makes the rounds from time to time, again capturing the minimalism of Jobs and therefore Apple known under Jobs.

STEVE JOBS AT HOME IN 1982 — “This was a very typical time. I was single. All you needed was a cup of tea, a light, and your stereo, you know, and that’s what I had.” —Steve Jobs






Getty Images made available an August 2004 photo shoot by Diana Walker, a favorite photographer of Steve Jobs' then at Time magazine.
The photos were taken a few weeks after Jobs' surgery to remove a malignant pancreatic tumor.
Only three of the 15 photos center on Jobs' actual desk in his Palo Alto home.










I like the mini Mac Pro/cheese grater in the first photo and the iMac on the floor in the last photo.

As cyber attacks and data breaches are commonplace, and 87 million Facebook users, and reportedly a much greater number more; personal information was shared in the Facebook Data Scandal, putting it mildly. our security and privacy is and has been at risk.


Last week FCC Chairman Ajit Pai was caught lying to Congress of an alleged cyber attack to distract attention from the popular outrage against the net-neutrality repeal effort. Actually the FCC's servers were overwhelmed after comedian John Oliver focused on the net-neutrality debate in an episode of Last Week Tonight. The inspector general's report makes clear its investigation found no evidence of a such an attack and that FCC officials had little basis for making their statements that there had been such an attack. Contrary to the officials' assertions to members of Congress that their analysis had led them to that conclusion, the investigation found they had done no "substantive" analysis at all. The lack of evidence for the attack was so clear so early on, that the investigation quickly swiveled from being an inquiry into a cyber attack into an examination of why FCC officials misled Congress.
Gee, imagine that, can't trust a politician pushing their own agenda. Quelle Surprise.


Even Lit had 14 bots during the past three months; also one member posting links to videos with pop-up windows containing scareware, Laurel took care of all of these.


All I’ve seen on Lit is about pop-up ads, and testing a Windows PC for problems. Have been working on some posts, however with the recent Sextortion scam in the wild, starting to post sooner than I want. Will be posting in pieces so not to confuse or overwhelm someone.


Hope to do next post this weekend about this Sextortion scam. However for now, it claims to have installed malware. Don't fret, it's a scam. Here are some free products you can download:

1. Avast Free Mac Security goes the extra mile to protect your Mac with an unusually lengthy feature list.

2. Avira Antivirus for Mac takes a simple, lightweight approach. There's no web filtering, network scanning or other security extras: it's purely focused on keeping your system malware-free.

3. Bitdefender Virus Scanner for Mac is a lightweight free malware hunter which can track down and remove both Mac and Windows-related threats.

4. Malwarebytes for Mac is simple, straightforward and effective.

5. Sophos Home for Mac gives you more features in its free products than many competitors provide in their paid editions.






Not to be a bitch, and told that I come by it naturally, don't be a lurker, instead please post when you've a question or problem regarding this topic; or send me a PM if you don't want all of Lit knowing about it.
Sandy
