    Re: Mac Pro - The Recovery partition is essentially a dumbed-down OS X, but gives you the option to reinstall the main OS, run Disk Utility, restore from Time Machine and more. Did you apply the download I linked yet? If it needs to restart I'm sure it will let you know.


    Re: MBP - If the Location Services is grayed out, maybe you didn't click the lock icon in the lower left of the window. You need to enter your administrator password in order to modify those and many other settings.

    thanks a ton again. sorry for the confusion. i find this whole iCloud deal uber confusing.


    There's a simple answer to this.  Find an Apple store close to you or an Apple Certified Service Center and ask them if they have any classes/seminars you can take for iCloud use and the Mac/iPhones in general.  Even BestBuy will put together some workshops for this sort of thing.  Go sit in on one of those and learn that way... you may get it better if someone does a show and tell for you rather than trying to make sense of it by reading docs on the matter.
