I have experienced this. If I try to update on my device, it said it needs me to make room for 1.2GB (or so) of space to update. If I connect it to my Mac, it will run the 6-800MB update no problem.

iCloud can act as another source of free storage, but at the same time it's more of a backup restore point. You can go to manage storage under iCloud and choose what you want backed up manually from your phone, people tend to not really understand "the cloud" but really it's more of a piece of mind incase any of your devices crashes and loses it's memory, which includes itouches iPhones and macs or anything that's using your iTunes account, then you can go to iCloud and restore whatever was backed in iCloud
Hope that made any bit of sense

Next question: how do i get icloud to store my photos without streaming them to my other devices? I only want them to take up space on one device but be saved in the cloud too....is that possible?
Disable photostream in the icloud settings of your other devices.

I believe it's typically enabled by default if you connect to your iCloud account.

The desktops are awesome. I've had mine for about 5-6 years and it still runs great!

Once you experience the quality of a Mac computer, you'll never go back to using a regular PC. Unless you're using a PC for major gaming. Mac just works better and you don't have to worry about all the virus programs. I've never had a virus or a crash the entire time I've had this Mac. All the PC's I had before this would start to lag and be trash within 1.5 years. The HP I had died in about 6 months. Complete junk.

On my 2013 Macbook Air, I was cleaning up some space today on it and it says that I have nearly 40GB of "Other" data. I imagine 10-20 of that is the operating system but how can I tell what the other 20GB is? It is a really crappy way of breaking down the types of things taking up space on my hard drive. If someone has a free widget or program that I could download to use instead that'd be pretty awesome.

I bought business line HP laptops and they were great for many years but everything wears out. I'm thinking if i want a desktop, then i'll someday build one. But for a laptop, i figure i'll buy a mac next time

Downloads folder can get pretty out of hand if you're not careful, also anything large that may be in your trash can. fwiw I have 30gb of "other" on my Mac, and I don't work with a whole lot of large files. I have 1 5gig file on my desktop that is included in that 30.

Well if there's anything like WinDirStat for the Mac then this would be what you're looking for

Gives you a nice visual representation of what's what and how much space it's taking up

Any ideas as to why my Mail app on my Macbook Air keeps restoring my junk email files? I've deleted a crapton since February and they keep ending up back in the folder (even when deleting the items from the trash).

Thoughts?

My 2007 24" iMAC was total junk.
3 screen replacements, mainboard, vid card, fans. Thing was total junk.
I believe that was the first year of the intel chips. I must have bought a real lemon.

I still have it if any one is interested in parts.
They flew a guy up from atlanta to replace everything in it last time. That was 2010 maybe, then it went out again.

Pretty painless experience and so much better after the switch was fixed
