iTunes/Apple ID password woes

Scotty, should I upgrade to OSX Mavericks? I have no idea.

That depends on the speed of your processor and the amount of ram you have. I say anything above a 2.66 Core 2 Duo is fine. And while Mavericks will run with only 2 gigs of ram, 4 is much better. You can find out this information by selecting “about this mac” under the black apple in the menu bar.

Overall, the answer is yes. Upgrade. It’s free and available in the Mac App Store.
