Took me a while to find this, but here's the profile picture directory in Mountain Lion: ~/Library/Containers/com.apple.ImageKit.RecentPictureService/Data/Library/Images/Recent\ Pictures/

Did you check the settings in the app "Audio MIDI Setup"? It's in /Applications/Utilities. Sometimes the settings there can get out of whack.

Well, a bit more research and I may have found a solution. * Proceed with caution. Backup files. Be smart. This worked for me YMMV. * The Easy Solution The most straight forward way to fix this problem seems to be to delete the SQLite database that stores Launchpad's data. To do this simply open the following folder, ~/Library/Application\ Support/Dock ...

Try the Boom system-wide volume booster tool. While it's not free, it is cheap: $6.99. See reviews here, here, and here. Below is the description from the product page, and a screenshot: Boom is a simple volume booster and system-wide equalizer that lets you boost the volume of your Mac and your music files. Using Boom is simple. You know the ...

Apple limits what can run in the background to ensure battery life is not dramatically reduced. Skype will be constrained to the same restrictions that all other App Store apps must follow. Given this, it is fair to assume Skype uses no more than any other Internet telephony app running in the background on your iPhone. Fraser Speirs's article may be ...

As this was an upgrade install, you had used Skype already for quite a while, right? I assume that Skype is simply displaying its own database which it build-up before Mountain Lion. I myself don't use Skype, so I just installed it and used my firewall to monitor what files Skype accesses: During the setup I was also prompted by Mountain Lion if I wanted ...

The EASIEST solution. Download the LaunchPad Control Preference pane, and use it to hide the pages, groups or single icons you don't want, like the duplicated Skype icon.

Well, seems like I just had to think about it a little bit more. My workaround is not possible using only system utilities. I used Soundflower and LineIn from Rogue Amoeba software. Using LineIn, I could select channels 3-4 specifically from the PreSonus device and route those to the two-channel Soundflower device. Then, I simply selected the Soundflower ...

Skype and Google Voice act very differently in the way that calls are received on your phone. Skype is VOIP (Voice Over IP) software, and all calls made using Skype will use your data plan when you're not in a WiFi area. However, if you have Skype Call Forwarding configured to forward to your iPhone you will be charged per minute just like a regular cell ...

multiple copies of Skype can only run under separate user accounts, making for some unfortunate but not critical overhead. create another user account on your Mac, either business or personal. then from the other one, open Terminal and do: $ su - [your other username] $ /Applications/Skype.app/Contents/MacOS/Skype & after which you can close the ...

Do you have it connected to a dock connector at the same time? I know in my experience with an iPhone 4 it does heat up when the screen is On while charging. However, this was in a period of an hour or two. 15 minutes shouldn't cause the phone to overheat like that, even on Skype. I suggest to take it to an apple store like @glenstorey said. Explain the ...

See iPad: Using Bluetooth headsets and keyboards in Apple’s Knowledge Base: Bluetooth car kit functionality is limited to audio output. Additional car kit features are not supported on iPad. The article on supported Bluetooth profiles on iOS might also be of interest. As you can see, the first-generation iPad doesn’t support the Hands-Free Profile (HFP ...

Did you try the screen share? It does require you typing, but not in the Skype field. You could use excel or word to type, and then share your screen with others.

BaiBoard BaiBoard is a free white board tool that allows you to share and collaborate on a virtual white board. It allows the use of free hand drawing, typing, lines, etc. There is a free Mac and iOS app. I find it works really well with google talk for audio chatting whilst a Wacom Graphics tablet for input.

Skype is a VOIP app so it is in the class of apps that actually do run in the background. However you need to start it manually. There's no facility in iOS to start a non-Apple app every time the device starts.

The tweak Phone GV Extension integrates Google Voice into the normal Phone app. I haven't tried it myself, but it's pretty popular and has a free trial available. Here's a Lifehacker post that recommends it and also suggests an App Store app: GV Mobile +.

Took me a lot of time to discover you have an option in iPhone (iPad) Settings app, you scroll down until you find Skype, and there you have the option to go offline automatically. Make sure this is set appropriately (e.g. to Never). I'm running last version available today, 23rd of may 2012, both IOS and Skype. Solved my problem few weeks ago.

There is an app for that :) ManyCam will allow you to use the iSight camera over multiple applications. I haven't had the chance to test it myself, but according to the app description, it should work just fine. Some customers complain about a slow Mac, some don't. So please give feedback about this app. EDIT: CamTwist should do the same.

I am running Skype 5.7 on a Mac without Flash installed. It does not complain about its absence. The 'Home' screen initially showed a blank box which was clearly a Flash video with a demo for something. That has now disappeared. It looks like Skype will use Flash if its installed but it is not required.

SoundFlower This is the traditional solution, and it is free. Although I am not sure if it's compatible with Lion. Once you have it installed, you'll need to get familiar with the Mac OS X system utility, Audio MIDI Setup, in the Utilities folder.

Back up your iPad with iTunes. Back up that hard drive. Unplug that backup and store it far away from any internet connection. If you do update Sykpe by mistake, restore the iPad from the backup. It won't keep Skype from updating, but it will preserve your ability to undo the update.

Not possible with the official Skype App. Running unofficial Skype client is possible, but recently Skype changed the rules and pushed out third parties, running Skype gateways (like Fring).

On Skype 6.3.xx the avatars are stored in ~/Library/Caches/com.skype.skype/(your skype name)/SKAvatarCache in TIFF format. You can view them by in Preview by opening Terminal and running open ~/Library/Caches/com.skype.skype/(your skype name)/SKAvatarCache/(name of the file)

Screen sharing on Skype is one-way only. Only one person in the call can share their screen with the other callers at one time. With the free accounts the sharing is limited to one-to-one. With the premium accounts you can do a one-to-many broadcast and share your screen out to multiple people at the same time. This does make some sense, two-way sharing has ...

This command from shell: sudo killall VDCAssistant restores the camera for me every time.

This is a solution involving exclusively free applications that I found in a great answer here. It involves Soundflower and Audacity. A great video on how - here. It seems that it's superior to the payed solutions, which I found discussed on the net, but which do not provide the same level of customization and complexity (especially, separate tracks and ...
