What’s a Stickie and why would I use it?

Stickies notes are essentially digital Post-its. The app works similarly to the Notes app, in that you make yourself notes so that you remember stuff. But Stickies notes stay on your desktop, as a visual reminder.

If the note is very pressing, you can choose to keep it in front of all windows so that you have a constant reminder. Or if you just need to remember to lock up the office at…

Multi-Touch Repair Program for iPhone 6 Plus

November 17, 2016
Scree on your iPhone 6 Plus no longer responding to touch? Apple has a new repair program — at a price.

Apple has launched a new repair program for iPhone 6 Plus owners who are experiencing problems using their Multi-Touch screens. “Touch disease” — a coined term some people use to describe the issue — has been known to cause several issues with iPhone 6 Plus screens including a gray flickering box at the top of the screen, trouble interacting with the screen, or even a complete failure of the touchscreen.

Apple’s statement on the new Multi-Touch Repair Program for iPhone 6 Plus is as follows:

“Apple has determined that some iPhone 6 Plus devices may exhibit display flickering or Multi-Touch issues after being dropped multiple times on a hard surface and then incurring further stress on the device.
If your iPhone 6 Plus is exhibiting the symptoms noted above, is in working order, and the screen is not cracked or broken, Apple will repair your device for a service price …

How to turn on System Integrity Protection (SIP) for your Mac

November 16, 2016
System Integrity Protection (SIP) should be on by default but, if it isn’t, you can turn it on at any time.

Introduced as part of OS X El Capitan, System Integrity Protection (SIP) was designed to provide a type of root-level shielding to the Mac similar to what the iPhone and iPad have benefited from for years. It should be enabled on any new Mac running El Cap, and certainly running the current macOS Sierra. Some new MacBook Pro 2016 owners, however, have booted up their new machines to find SIP disabled instead. My guess is Apple is already hard at work on a fix, but in the meantime, here’s how to turn it back on yourself!

How to check if System Integrity Protection is enabled on your Mac

Before turning SIP on, the first thing you need to do is make sure it isn’t on already.

Launch Terminal on your Mac.
Type in “csrutil status” (or copy and paste it in from here).
If SIP is ON, you’ll get this message in response: “System Integrity Protection status: enabled.” If you see that,…
