Member topics

  • DaveK mentioned the film The Umbrellas of Cherbourg.
  • We discussed USB-C and what Apple might do with iPhone connectivity and charging in future.
  • Elliot asked about troubleshooting when Safari does not offer the saved password on a website login page. We suggested checking the address (URL) of the login page and if it’s different from the saved one adding a new password entry for that URL.
