This kind of applies to all hardware, not just apple computers. I did a search for Anker USB Hub. None of the results showed a powered USB Hub. They all relied on the USB Bus for power. The average USB port has about 500 mA available. (900 mA in USB3.0) USB Keyboard uses between 50 mA and 100 mA. The USB hub itself also needs power, more if it's got all ...

Since Retina is an Apple trademark, the "official" answer is no third-party display gets that recognition. According to wikipedia, all Mac that are marketed with Retina displays have a pixel density of 220 PPI or thereabouts, so you could make an argument that any external display that's IPS and at least 220 pixels per inch would be in the "Retina class". ...

This is probably a problem with Safari font rendering engine with Merriweather Sans font. It has something to do with ligature I suppose. You can check typecast.com and see that when You insert fi it automatically is changed to if as You type.

It's an official bug, yes. It seems to be solely happening with Merriweather Sans. Maybe someone at Apple or on the east coast decided to protest the name of the font? ;) Seriously, an update is in the works, and someone here suggests a work-around. https://github.com/google/fonts/issues/184

I'm not going to pretty this up like Graham Miln nicely did however it you want to create an AppleScript app that you can run before disconnecting your external display then this will wait 30 seconds, check to see if it's in clamshell mode and if yes put the system to sleep. AppleScript code: delay 30 set AppleClamshellState to do shell script "ioreg -r -k ...

While running a dual-display setup, you can easily adjust the primary display monitor in Mac OS X. Before beginning, have both displays turned on, and the external display already connected to the Mac: Go to System Preferences -> Displays Choose the ‘Arrangement’ tab Click and hold on the white bar at the top of the current primary display Drag the white ...

iMacs can be used in Target Display Mode, but only from another Mac. This is a specific support mode, Mac to Mac, it is not the same as connecting an external display to a graphics card. See OS X Yosemite: Use another Mac as a display

A 13" Retina MacBook Pro has a screen resolution of 2,560 × 1,600, while the 15" has a 2,880 × 1,800 resolution. 4K is defined as a 4096 x 2160 resolution. So depending on how big the monitor is, a 4K monitor should actually look better from the same viewing distance. As for my personal recommendation, anything but a Samsung.

Yes - that's the way it's coded/engineered No - you'll need to post process the images using a tool that's designed to automate this or use Automator to make a service to resample the images. I like Skitch and Napkin for processing retina images, but there are many others.
