Hey everyone, could someone please help me with finding a solution to the issue of GPS not working after iOS 9.0.2 update? Have tried all the resetting solutions and even took to the Genius Bar. The technician reset the phone, but still not working. Seems like a hardware issue. Am no longer covered by Apple Care so will need to buy a new phone. Is Apple really allowing me the perception that their updates can break the hardware of phones and then not replace them? Am trying not to feel utterly disappointed, but this isn't looking good. Thanks!

I´d say its a hardware problem, had that on my 4s (GPS broken). Try to: restore your phone from backup. If that doesn't work, it's a hardware issue. Downgrading won't help in that case.

I'm currently going through a time of major transition and am feeling a great deal of imbalance. This short piece about finding my reset button is wonderfully timed. Are you also in need of pressing the reset button to get back to your center?
Knowing when to return to center, and having the awareness of the need to reset, using easy techniques, can transform feeling overwhelmed into peace.

Hey, everyone! I'm hoping that someone might be able to help me fix a friend's 2011 MacBook Pro. We're both serving abroad in Botswana so our only hope for solving technical issues lies in our ability to find the right resources online.

Generally speaking, the MBP is a nightmare. It runs very slow, takes about 2 minutes to boot up, pinwheel constantly, and it's far clitchier than any other Mac I've used. She has plenty of free space on her computer so it's not a storage issue.

My friend is not a friend of technology and I feel terrible that she's having such a lousy experience with her Mac. I'm merely an enthusiast so my abilities are very limited. Because of my shortcomings the only thing I can think to do is to backup everything and restore her computer (wipe it). Any thoughts or suggestions?

Thank you so much, +Pedro Lobo and +Lars E.! I'm hoping to visit her this weekend and will update you all on what I find out. I can't overstate how grateful I am to have the MPU audience helping me with this. It's unsurprising because this group has always been so incredibly giving, but thank you thank you!

I believe that we all step onto our #yoga  mats for some level of healing, whether we understand it or not. But these stories from +Yoga Journal illustrate the true power of yoga practice.

I'm so proud and honored to work with such an inspiring team in the Dukwi #refugee camp in #Botswana! If you'd like to learn more about what we're doing to nurture effective leadership and personal growth, definitely check out our next update.
 
Later this week we're sending out a #LEEP update, which includes a wonderful letter by Jack valuing the changes he's seen within himself as a LEEP staff member. If you haven't signed-up for updates, it's super easy (http://goo.gl/8XwENb) or +1 this post & we'll message you a direct link to the letter once it's out. As always, thanks for your support!

Hey everyone! So my Peace Corps friend working here in Botswana with me just updated her iPod 5 to ios9. Well, the update took just 5 minutes (took about 2 hours on my iPhone 5). Needless to say, after the update, the iPod kept restarting and ultimately got stuck in a restart loop and never went to the full homescreen. I tried putting the iPod in restore mode and updating (as to not lose data, photos, etc.). After 12 hours of downloading, we woke up to the phone still stuck in the restart loop. I put it back in restore mode and tried updating again, but it went into redownloading the software. I've now selected to restore and it's downloading the software update again. I'm afraid that after the hours of downloading, the iPod will go out of restore mode (which it has) and we'll keep having to go through the same steps with no new options. Any help would be greatly appreciated!

Hey everyone. So here's what I did: I had to update iTunes to 12.3 (was 12.2). Tried to update both manually and through iTunes download and it wouldn't take. I then restored and ios9 was loaded, though all data (photos, notes, music, etc) were lost. Word of wisdom: backup, backup, backup.

I remember when my 11th grade history teacher encouraged me not to give up, that there was still time to grow into who I wanted to be. I have never forgotten that day. The power of positive role models, from those who offer support and mentorship, is very real. This relationship is a key component to the success of LEEP. Please join me in supporting LEEP so that students in Dukwi can feel the love of those who care so much about them!
Support LEEP 2015!

I've now had the pleasure of booking with AirTreks for two international trips. Each experience has been fantastic: their staff is responsive, kind, and helpful; their emails are descriptive, thoughtful, and relevant; and their research is quick and thorough. Will continue to return to them for future travel.
