    Yes and no. I'm fighting with my new Intel iMac running Mac OS 10.7.5  If I don't keep restarting it, it becomes slower than my iMac G5 AL with 10.5.8; I made the mistake of connecting once to the G5 via my network and now it keeps wanting to re-connect every few minutes even though the G5 isn't on the network. I've asked for help here on AD, but so far there has been resounding silence. Ah, the things we have to do to use an iPhone 5!

    How much RAM do you have? Check Activity Monitor (in Utilities) - Lion (and Mountain Lion) is a memory hog. 4 GB should be considered a minimum; kernel_task regularly uses up to 1 GB of RAM - with nothing open but Firefox and Mail, my usage is over 3 GB. Once I increased the RAM (I have 12 GB), things settled down. I had sent in a bug report and Apple's answer was: working as designed/expected  with an explanation of running in 64 bit mode vs. 32 bit mode. Also, from what I've heard, Safari needs some attention (the web content becomes overbloated) - I think resetting/quitting helps and/or quit the process in Activity Monitor - I don't have a problem with it because I don't use it, LOL.

     

    And you're on your own with the iPhone - don't have one (but I do now have an iPad)....

    OK, after working with AppleCare the phantom server connection has been fixed; I was finally able to get the iMac to remember my preferred (and ONLY) network. The slowdown continues. Yes, a RAM upgrade is on the "to do" list, but I need to get my cc's paid down after a three week trip and some car repairs. I now just shut down at night; also during the day if need be. My plan is to fill the 2 empty slots with 8GB modules, bumping me up to 20 GB. Then later replacing the 2 2GB modules with 2 more 8GB modules to max it out at 32GB.

     

    As for the iPhone 5, it finally arrived last Monday and I was able to sync it to replace my old 3GS. Now I just need to buy 3 more USB/Lightning cables for my cars.

    3 cars???? Sell one of the cars > saves from having to buy a third cable and you'll have the money to buy RAM and pay off the cards ..... just a thought

    Can't! One is my wife's 2004 Prius, one is my 1989 Mazda Miata, and the third is the 2005 VW Jetta TDI Wagen I bought to chauffer my 92 years-old mother around since she gave up her license last year. As she said, she might be able to fall into the Miata but she'd never be able to get out - even more apt after breaking her hip back in April. Besides, 3 $20 cables are cheaper than 3 $30 adapters.

    Here's one to boggle your brain.  The first idea for a computer came from the British mathmetician, Alan Turing, who was also a cryptographer and broke the German Enigma codes.  He died by dipping an apple in cyanide and taking a bite.  The apple with the bite was found by his bedside.

    Actually the first computer may have been the Antikythera mechanism of c100BC. In more modern times, though there were calculating machines, the first computer (though never completed) was the Babbage Analytical Engine first described in 1837 - unlike the calculating machines it was to have been actually programmable. There is currently a plan in progress to build a working version of it.

    Yeah maybe. Or maybe it just looks like an Apple because that's the name of the company.
