Tech / Fairly Detailed Discussion on WiFi Options
« Last post by Xairbusdriver on December 11, 2018, 07:25:59 PM »
Since Apple will not be offering any new WiFi hardware, we might want to get acquainted with the latest hardware options. Found this rather long (and sometimes extremely complicated posts) on the subject at TidBITS-Talk.

I posted these mainly for the humor or humour (humuor?), depending on which side of the Pond you live. I actually enjoy watching any new atempts, if they show at least a bit of cleverness. :coolio: :WOW:

SpamSieve works great for me. I can’t remember ever seeing the same spammer twice. Of course, since the sender is usually spoofed, we can never be sure. That’s why most good filter methods use huge key word and phrase list, as well as addy blacklists. It’s great to have choices! :thumbup:

I use Apple Mail sparingly. It is used for family and a few iPhone apps that I use. Gmail is great for filtering spam mail. I glance over the folder and hit delete and that takes care of it.

When I get the occasional SCAM or SPAM in my dot.mac account, I send the raw source to spamcop.net. If nothing else, the message gets seen by more eyes than just mine, and for the most part, they give up.

Remembering our trip to Ireland several years ago, I was delighted to see that some of the local taxes were being returned, finally! I double-checked the link, so I'm expecting a refund before Christmas!!! Imagine, a "24/7" site on the web! :coolio: :whistling:

Assuming that you bought the MBP in 2013 back when you were discussing it here on TS, and that you bought one of the last 2010 models (in 2011, they dropped the Core 2 Duos and went to the i series processors) and never updated the OS, then you CAN update the OS to 10.13 - High Sierra, which is the last OS before the current one (Mojave, 10.14) But, you do need to have sufficient RAM and while it will theoretically run with 4GB, which is what most of these machines had when shipped, it will work better with 8GB.

I believe, from reading some of your old posts on TS, that the reason you wanted the older machine was because you had older hardware and software you wanted to continue to use. Is this no longer the case?

If so, then my advice is the same as it is to pretty much everyone: to go for the best combination of features and speed that you need, and can afford. You can get some good deals on the refurb store here, but the one in France seems to have only a few items available. Not sure why. Same thing with the refurbs in the UK, Belgium and Germany. A few in the "featured" section, but NOTHING at all in the main Mac refurb section (if you look at the Canadian store - https://www.apple.com/ca/shop/refurbished/mac - you'll see the huge difference. It's bizarre...)

Anyway - if you can post your current specs - do the "About this Mac" thing - processor speed, RAM, hard drive capacity - Model number so we can check things on https://everymac.com (or just post the link to the right one at everymac.com) that would help a lot.

You can certainly update the current machine so you can run current browsers and so on - but if you need to keep it as is to use with some old hardware/software and want to buy a new one to run current software/browsers/hardware, then we need to know what you want to do with it in general terms and what sort of budget you have in mind.

The latest version of Firefox is not compatible whith Snow leopard
Try another browser. Apple makes one called Safari. It came with your OS and should have been updated many times.

the macbook don't support new OS version
Update to one that it can run. I could suggest one, but you don't have any info about your hardware (or software) in your Profile. Please update your Profile info.
