    iphone or Android for Mac compatibility vs cost and other stuff

    I'll keep it brief... I'm a mac user of 15 odd years, and as much as I love my MBP I don't think I'll be going to iPhone or iPad anytime soon; they are too restrictive for me in terms of apps, file sharing, etc. I like my MBP as I can do pretty much anything I need to on it, and any other Apple...

Any ideas? (yes I could put a box behind the text, edit, then delete it, but that seems like a clunky...

    IT help required - SMTP email settings and BT Business internet
