A large post-it
Since we need ever more complex and differing passwords, and we don't trust password managers ...... how about a piece of paper and maybe a pencil ?
and maybe hope not to get burgled .....

While I must admit to enjoying the apparent "come-uppance" at Apple, I do regret this overall trend. I don't want to use Andoid. I don't want Google to know more about my life, but when my ageing iphone6 dies, I'll have to switch to Android. I sincerely hope Apple reverse their price gouging. As others have said, I'm well paid, but just will not pay their silly prices - even to avoid Android.
Can we stop all the Apple basing .... it's tedious.
All this willy waving about it not being powerful enough for your use case is just juvenile bollocks. Well done, you can find a higher spec machine for less money - you must be hung like a blue whale - happy now ?
If people knowingly want to spend more on a Mac - let them. Some folk waste money on flash cars or fancy meals ....
I guess peoples' polarised opinions depend on how much one objects to Google (or anyone else) having even more access to your privacy. For me I want a physical switch and it'll stay off until these things can do something really useful, and even then I would choose the vendor carefully .....
I shifted to Aldi for a few reasons :
1. They're cheaper (a lot)
2. I think overall their quality is superior (the Chicken doesn't appear to have been soaked in water for 3 months to boost it's weight) & they've shown (at least to me) that brands are not always better.
3. I got tired of the buy 6 punnets for the price of a 1 or yo-yo wine price "offers" that made me wish I'd brought a calculator on each shop
All this lost my trust
I just hope our UK grocers take this kicking on board and fix things
It too have experienced ~hourly display blank-outs with my new i7 mac mini. I agree that it sounds like a MRC issue and that likely Apple are working it. I did call their help line and indeed they were very helpful. They offered to swap out - but I declined as I suspect that wouldn't fix it and would just entail a load more grief for me.
So long as it is fixed in the next few weeks, I'll just put up with it. Has kind of taken the shine off an otherwise pleasant purchase though ....
