  1. Ben Bajarin, writing for tech.pinions:
  2. My iPhone X works great, 4G LTE, TMobile plan with a US number, via online Apple store delivered in USA. I got it about 6 months ago. 4G hotspot works great in SJC when telecable goes down. Apple has over 1 billion users with better customer satisfaction than any other smartphone manufacturer. The people who attack Apple users as a cult that have been dooped in some way are misguided. Google and Apple have both won the mobile era, they are merely consumer choices. There is no one correct choice for everyone. Price is just one factor in an individual’s buying choice. It’s like cars, many choices available and all are likely to do their intended job. Pick the one you like, are comfortable with and can afford.
  3. Tacos Los Primos in Jocotepec has great al pastor tacos. On the same street as Farmacia Guadalajara and a block past the Chinese Restaurant on the same side of the street. Open only in the evenings. They also make al pastor gringas ( with cheese )
  4. I pay my CFE bill in advance for my own convenience. I have also paid IIlox in hopes of helping to fund better infrastructure for the area. Since the costs are relatively small for me, the risk is also small with the potential of great reward ( fast internet ). It is a simple equation of low risk, high reward for me. Your mileage may vary, and that’s ok.
  5. Even though it is not on the menu, their snapper zarandeado is among the best in town.
  6. Telecable offers internet, TV and phone service as well...
  7. We prepay (anticipo) CFE which works great except they do not print the remaining credit on your bill, one has to ask CFE what the remaining balance is...
  8. Buy from the Apple online store in Mexico and have it delivered to your door. https://www.apple.com/mx/ipad-9.7/
  9. ATV works well in Mexico. I use a dedicated router that routes all ATV traffic through a US VPN. With a NOB cable subscription one has access to all the cable verified apps like NBC, CBS, etc. Paid services like Hulu and Netflix also need the VPN. TV rights are unfortunately fragmented via country. The VPN gets detected every now and then after which you wait a day or two for the VPNs outgoing IP to change up. TV shows and Movies that are rented or purchased via ATV/iTunes works perfectly without a VPN. Hope this helps.
  10. Telecable is unreliable and oversubscribed - I am low down in the RC. Depending on how many people are in town ( hotels & snowbirds ) service becomes unusable or non-existent in the afternoon/evening. Usually fast speeds in early morning then close to nothing by 5 PM. I pay for 15mb/s, right now ( 11:30AM) I'm seeing 9 down. Tonight I'll be lucky to see 2mb/s down. It has gotten worse over the last few years. Telecable also has periodic outages - last Friday night it went down and did not come back until Monday morning. I was hoping to switch to Telmex for better service but sounds like that is oversubscribed too. Just realised this this is an old thread that was revived... by bmh, ooops.
  11. I would reformat the hard drive and then restore from backup ( as long as you KNOW that your backup is good). I would also check that your backup media is good on a different machine first. As for prevention, I agree that running an OS that is targeted less frequently leads to a safer computing experience. Windows and Android are the most ubiquitous and therefore the most targeted operating systems in the world. Clicking on a malicious link, adware, and poorly curated app stores are common delivery sources of malware. I run MacOS and iOS and have never had a problem in decades of computing. I run adblockers and never click on an email link that is not obviously good. I have never installed anti virus software due to my choice of OS. I update my operating systems regularly. Your mileage may vary.
