One of the main reasons I wanted to wait to build the Hacintosh with MacOS 10.10 is the promise of Handoff. I find that I sometimes start looking for info on the phone but then get to a point where the small size is just too constraining so I want to switch to the computer. I end up e-mailing myself a URL. How primitive! Being able to handoff a URL from the phone to the computer would be way better. The ability to make phone calls on my iPhone using the computer, what Apple calls Continuity, seems neat but that’s a nice-to-have, not a feature that I’d use often. (If I am at the computer, odds are good that I am going to use the landline rather than the cell phone to make a call – nothing like a quality landline with zero delay, zero garbling, and zero signal drops.)
Unfortunately, after I got the Hacintosh working, Handoff didn’t appear to be working. I was disappointed, but I had lots of other stuff to deal with at the time. Now, it’s finally time to get back to trying to get that working. So what is it that might be preventing it from working?
