Apple has announced the launch of a voluntary recall and replacement program for 15-inch MacBook Pro models with Retina display sold between September 2015 and February 2017 due to battery failure issues.

Dropbox drops support for older systems

Dropbox drops support for older systems

          On November 3, 2017, the Dropbox desktop application will no longer be available for download or install on devices that run the following operating systems: Mac: OS X 10.6, OS X 10.7, OS X 10.8 On January 16, 2018, Dropbox will completely stop supporting these versions. On this date, you’ll be automatically signed out of the Dropbox desktop application if you use it on a computer that runs one of these operating systems. You will no longer be able to access the Dropbox desktop application on that computer unless you update the operating system to a supported version. Note: You should still be able to access the Dropbox website (dropbox.com) from a computer that runs one of these operating systems. Why is this happening? Apple stopped providing security updates to OS X 10.8 in 2015 and keeps a list of obsolete devices. Thus the following versions of OS X are no longer supported for the Dropbox desktop app: OS X 10.6 OS X 10.7 OS X 10.8 Are my files still safe? Yes. If you’re using the Dropbox desktop app on a computer with one of these operating systems, and you choose not to update it, your files will remain in your Dropbox account. You can access them from another supported device, or on dropbox.com if you’re using a supported browser. What does this mean for me? When an operating system is no longer supported, the Dropbox application will stop syncing any changes. You’ll also be signed out of the Dropbox desktop app on that computer. To continue using the Dropbox desktop app on that computer after...
