Perfect. I need to get on that. Thanks.

Do you use a program or something that automatically backs everything up, or do it manually?

I just use a WD hard drive and Apple's built in time machine.

Snagged a 13" w/ Touch Bar today. Amazon has $200 off the top end model. For the wife, of course. Her Late 2012 rMBP AppleCare ends 10/31/16, so we'll drop that off tomorrow to take care of the freezing and trackpad issues. Then sell it on ebay once we get it back.

I really want AirPods, but I also feel like I'm an idiot for really wanting AirPods. Did any of you grab a pair? Thoughts so far?

I have test drove them. And they sound better than I expected them too.

I don't have a wireless fetish for audio equipment. My thing is more fidelity more than anything else and wireless just doesn't sound as good.

If it were me I would spend $150 on Etymotic brand headphones. But they are probably going to be wired.

Thanks. I agree and if I pull the trigger, it wouldn't be for fidelity, it would be more for the convenience of being wireless. I have a couple of cheap bluetooth sets and they're okay, but the fit is off and they're a PITA to sync and charge and all of that. #FirstWorldProblems
