From the NY Times:


TIP OF THE WEEK Have you ever wanted to rename a whole group of files at once? Although earlier versions of Mac OS X did not make it easy (without extra software or scripts), OS X 10.10 Yosemite can rename multiple files at the same time.

Just select all the files you want to change (like a folder of vacation pictures), and right-click the selected group to see the contextual menu; you can also hold down the Control key while clicking to get the menu. Choose Rename Items from the menu. The box that appears offers multiple ways to rename the selected files, including replacing part of the existing name, adding text to the file name or creating a new name format and numbering system that changes the camera’s numeric photo titles to more descriptive file names like “Paris (1).jpg,” “Paris (2).jpg” and so on.

Good evaluation I think.
The tech giant has succeeded in ensuring that its phones, tablets and computers work seamlessly together. You might never leave.

Quiet here lately. Any news or questions for Mac-using genealogists?

And the screen graphics are so primitive. But I wanted to tuck my Mac SE 30 in bed at night, I loved it so much.

Personally, I have always found TimeMachine to be excellent at backing up. Sure, some things might be easier if you clone your drive (you can definitely recover faster, as you only need to clone it back). But I have had 2 major outages from upgrading (due to my own complicated setup), and TimeMachine was always successful in getting all my data back.

I do recommend making sure that TimeMachine has run before you upgrade, and optionally make a clone, if you feel safer that way. I can't make any recommendations as far as software goes, as I have never done that before.

David Pogue overview on OS 7 for your iPhone & iPad:

http://pogue.blogs.nytimes.com/2013/09/17/yes-theres-a-new-iphone-but-thats-not-the-big-news/?_r=0

Looks like the search function is a downward swipe instead of right. Other features look good too.
With iOS 7, the look of Apple’s mobile operating system has been completely overhauled, and many of the iPhone’s features have been improved.

Reviving an old computer is like restoring a classic car: There's a thrill from bringing the ancient into the modern world. So it was with my first “real” computer, my Mac Plus, when I decided to bring it forward three decades and introduce it to the modern Web. It's a lowly machine, my Mac.

So far the only thing that really bugs in 10.10 is the Translucence thing in the menu bar and dock, but fortunately it can be turned off.

Things I Didn't Know My Mac Could Do: press and hold a letter and a choice of several accent marks pops up. I still need the PopChar app for the complicated ones, but this is nice and quick.

What app were you in or were you in the Finder when you tried, Karen? It's really just holding the key down lightly that makes the accent marks pop up.
