I just downloaded the new FREE OS X Yosemite from Apple on Mary Lou's iMac. I am now downloading it on my MacBook Pro. And the great thing is, it's free. Come on Microsoft, do the right thing, and give your operating systems away for free to your users, too. We get free telephone calls now from our Apple computers, weird. Our iPhone calls now ring on our computers. Also, all text to our iPhones go to our computers, too. I love Apple products. Yes, I am an Apple fan boy.

Are there any Apple users on our forum?

This is funny. Mary Lou and I were in her office an hour after installing the new operating system on her iMac. She had her cell phone on the first floor, her office is on the second floor. Her cell phone started ringing downstairs. We did not hear it. However, her Apple computer started ringing, too! Mary Lou clicked on a button on her computer screen and answered her phone. How cool is that? You can also make calls from your computer, too.

I got OS X Yosemite installed on my MacBook Pro. It took awhile. It took over six hours to download it and start the install. I noticed I had a white screen. The download seemed to stop. I went online and read others had the white screen, too. It looked like it was not doing anything. I restarted my MBP and held down the "option" key. That seem to get it going, again. About thirty minutes later, it was done. I was a little worried, ha. (I did say a prayer, too. That may have done it!) I had Mary Lou call my iPhone, and sure enough, my MBP rang and I was able to talk. If you have a Mac and are going to upgrade to Yosemite, give it a lot of time. I would suggest you start your upgrade around 8:00 PM and don't look at it until the morning. That should give your Mac enough time to load all the new bells and whistles.
