How to upload multiple Photos libraries to a single iCloud Photo Library

How to upload multiple Photos libraries to a single iCloud Photo Library Rob Rosenbaum has a slightly terrifying question. He‘s been syncing photos from a single iPhone to two different Macs via USB-just importing them on each Mac. He is about to turn on iCloud Photo Library, but he wonders. Once I turn this on for the first time, will iCloud import everything from all three? Even if it‘s the same photo? Will anything be erased?

Hackintosh: Build a DIY Mac for gaming

Fellow Macworld contributor Kirk McElhearn recently built a mini Hackintosh; that is, a generic PC styled like a Mac mini, on which he installed and ran macOS. This is a road I‘ve gone down myself, way back in 2008, when I built my Frankenmac. As Kirk was building a relatively low-end Mac clone, and as Apple has ignored the high-end Mac Pro for so many years, I thought it‘d be interesting to build a new high-end Frankenmac.To read
