Continued to use my fault AirPods Pro for few reasons

I bought my AirPods Pro during the initial months of launch and Apple has come out with new announcement that due to manufacturing defect, the product manufactured before Oct’20 would be replaced for FREE. Post this announcement, I had suspicious about my AirPods Pro manufacturing defect, but continued to use the product for more than a year for my own reason as detailed below

  • COVID Outbreak and transport restrictions: After suspecting that my AirPods Pro has manufacturing defect, I wanted to check the product at Apple store for the same and get FREE replacement. However, when I was about to go the Apple store there was COVID restriction at my location and the stores were completely closed, I had no other option but to postpone my plan.
  • Usage scratches & dents in the AirPods Pro stem and case: As I was delaying my visit to the Apple store due to COVID restrictions, there was another notable concern of scratches on the AirPods Pro stem and on the case. I was skeptical about the scratches and dent on the product and was worried whether the claim would be rejected due to product damage while usage.

The above factors delayed my visit to the Apple store, and I continued to use my AirPods pro with the manufacturing defect for more than a year. However, finally I was successful on getting my replacement AirPods pro due to manufacturing defect and to know more about my replacement process, please feel free to check out the articles published in “G R Team Sites”

My 2012 MacBook Pro started to create issues after long time

I have been using 2012 MacBook pro for a long time and I always prefer MacBook devices for their reliability and long-term usability. However, out of no-where I experienced following symptoms in my MacBook pro and was grateful that it was working still now.
  • Random shutdown and SMC reset: One fine day, while I was working on my personal project out of nowhere, my MacBook pro shutdown all by itself and it didn’t restart as it usually does in my earlier times when I stress out the RAM with multiple projects. This random shutdown was suspicious, the luck was in my favor, as my MacBook was able to boot again, and I didn’t want to take a chance and performed SMC reset. So, the issue was resolved for the time being and continued my personal project work.
  • Power Failure and Cable Change: After SMC reset, my 2012 MacBook pro was working fine for past few weeks and out of nowhere the laptop got shutdown again. But this time laptop was not booting as well, and I was completely scared. After few minutes, I noticed that there was no light in the power cable and diagnosed that the power cable had issues and time has come for replacement. After power cable replacement, the laptop was working fine, and it was not the end.

My MacBook pro has started to show signs of wear out and the problem had increased by each week. To know more about how my MacBook pro was failing, please feel free to check out “G R Team Sites”

Storage partition & limit option availability in OneDrive



OneDrive have become my preferred online cloud storage option and I have started to upload all my important work files to OneDrive. It has been few months since I have started to use OneDrive as my preferred cloud storage option and started to use work files directly from OneDrive folder integration into MAC operating system. However, there are few constraints that I have encountered while I was using OneDrive and following are my concerns. 
  • Limit storage in each folder: Since OneDrive provides vast storage option of 1TB for each user in the family, it has become difficult to keep a check on storage that is being used by each folder and should include option to limit storage to certain levels for specific folder, so that the folder can be cleaned up from unwanted files or remove unnecessary backups.
  • Storage Partition between system files and Photo’s backup: OneDrive has been primary backup solution for all my needs, including important work files and to back-up all my photos taken on my iPhone. However, there is no option to partition the folder structure within OneDrive to separate the files that is being uploaded into work files and exclude the personal photos getting merged into work file history. 
Microsoft should enable few options or features for the users to have their files better organized into OneDrive and for more such suggestions, feel free to check out the articles published in “G R Team Sites”

iCloud issues: Lack of always on this device option in iCloud


Apple has numerous iCloud features and lot of exclusive in-built option in MacOS, however there was one of the most annoying option for its users. Let me detail the constraints for users using iCloud in Mac operating system
  • Files getting removed frequently: While storing the files in iCloud, the files are removed randomly and occasionally without no reason. Later, I figured that the files are removed from iCloud folders to save some storage and no matter how much space available in the hard disk, the files are removed from iCloud folders. 
  • Lack of option available to make files available offline: iCloud or Mac Operating system does not have option to enable file available in offline mode and at times, the important files get deleted. There should have been preference option to enable the iCloud files to be available always in the Mac computer and not be deleted for saving storage. 
Hope Apple brings up new update or enhancements to the iCloud preference to make all file available offline and not to be deleted to save storage. For more such articles, please feel free to check out the "G R Team Sites"

Most annoying Spam mails and new features suggestions for Gmail

Recent times for most people across globe, the most annoying part of checking their mails is the spam mails pumped by most unsecured servers and by automated bots. The most concerning part is that the mail service providers have not enforced few restrictions to block spam mails from specific domains and following are my views on introducing new features by mail service providers like Gmail. 
  • Option to block all mails from specific domain address: Usually we get repeated mails from specific domain address and only the prefix name changes. Gmail can provide an option for users to block mails from specific domains and all future mails with the repeated content. 
  • Option to report domain names and block further mails: Gmail provides basic option to report phishing or spam mails, however those mails are just moved to Junk folder and again new mail is received from same domain name. There should have been option report the domain names as well and post reporting the mail, the domain should be blocked from sending any further mails to mail address. 
Hope Google makes note of above feature requests and introduces these features to all mail users, so they can have hassle free mail experience with limited or no spam mails. For more such articles or information from me, please feel free to check out the articles published in G R Team Sites.
