Back of Airport Express

Airport Express I love you!

You owe yourself an Airport Express!

What an elegant device that solves a multitude of problems.

  • Add a WIFI hotspot

This clever little device can add an additional WIFI hotspot in your house or office.

Lead an Ethernet cable from your existing ADSL Router and plug into the back of the Airport.
BOOM you have a fast and strong 802.11n wifi hotspot.

  • ┬áMake most USB printers WIFI

Plug your USB printer into the back of the Airport Express.
BOOM your non WIFI USB printer is now available via WIFI from Mac and PC computers.

  • AIRPLAY

Plug a lead from your HiFi into the back of the Airport Express.
BOOM!!!! CHAKA BOOM!
You can play your music collection from any Mac or iDevice wireless and blast it through your HiFi.

  

iCloud made simple

If you have more than one iDevice and/or a Mac and an iDevice you should be using iCloud.icloud logo

Check list of requirements:

  • OS 10.7.2 or later on your Mac.
  • iOS 6 or later on your iDevice

WHY should I?

  • If your iDevice or Mac is stolen or lost you can use Find my iPhone/iPad/Mac to locate it.
  • iCloud is an easy and cable free way of synchronizing data across your iDevices and your Mac.
  • Apart from boring calendar events and contacts your photos can wirelessly be synchronized using Photo Stream!
  • Previously the only way to sync data was to manually connect your iDevice with its cable to your Mac and let iTunes do its work.

Easy steps:

Apple step by step can be found at:

http://www.apple.com/icloud/setup/mac.html

  • If you already have an iTunes account, then enter your username and password into the iCloud System Preferences of both your iDevice and your Mac. Your iTunes account will automatically be upgraded to your new iCloud account.
  • Your iCloud account, iTunes account and Apple ID can and should all be exactly the same thing. To have a different login for any one of these causes unnecessary confusion and hassle.
  • In the iCloud preferences panel on both Mac and iDevice tick on all the options except for document and data sharing. Don’t click Back to My Mac either. Apple are still ironing out some serious issues with this feature. (Documents and Data sharing is only used for iWork)

It’s that easy!

You can now take advantage of your notes, calendar events, contacts and pictures auto synchronizing across your devices.

How did you ever live without this amazing functionality?
