First off, Macs will happily bind to Active Directory domains - there's some variation between versions of AD and OS X, but if you're on AD 2008 or newer and OS X 10.8.3 or newer you won't have any problems.

Your file should be viewable on the Mac without issues, though there are some things you need to avoid. Motion path animations isn't a feature that exists on the Mac version, but it will play those animations in files created on windows. You just won't be able to edit that animation on the Mac. You should also avoid embedding linked content and anything ...

Windows 7 should see your connected iPhone as a Photo Camera. Just use the same software that you'd use for importing individual photos from a regular USB-connected camera. In Mac you can use a builtin utility called Image Capture for this (or iPhoto or Aperture if you have those).

Yes, Apple provides a Software (including the drivers) to install Windows a Macs: Bootcamp Apple's EULA doesn't allow installing OS X on non Apple hardware.

In my experienced opinion, CoRD and Jump Desktop are the best RDP clients for Mac. CoRD is more for those that know what they're doing - it's simple, stable, fast and reliable. Jump Desktop however is for those that are new to Remote Desktop Connections and want something that makes things easy. It's easily the slickest RDP client for Mac too and looks ...

I know this is not the answer you want to hear, but unfortunately there is no way to disable the discrete GPU and use the integrated graphics, when using Bootcamp. This has been discussed (to death) on support forums and on the web generally. I have thought myself in the past, that it would be useful to be able to turn off the discrete GPU just to improve ...

Currently, no, this isn't possible. There's no such thing as maximising a window in OS X — I therefore presume you are referring to a window which has been stretched to fill the entire screen (as much as possible — i.e. not behind the menu bar). Since there is no difference between a window which has been enlarged and a 'maximised' window, there's no ...

Hold ⌥ on boot and select your OS X partition. This changes your boot partition once for that time you boot.

TotalTerminal might be a better option. TotalTerminal has a visor mode that allows it to stay on top of all the other windows. You can choose to place it anywhere on the desktop, of course, and choose to have it slide out from one of those positions when you use CTRL-~ key combo or anything else you’ve set up. Plus it’s free.

I can't offer you another option, but I have run into the sharing issue as well. Occasionally my iPhone will connect very slowly and not show my entire library. The fix that has always worked for me, is to remove and then reset the home sharing Apple ID from the iPhone Music settings. This seems to reset everything to how it should be and has solved my ...

I found a great little script that seems to do the job: iTunes Automation: Convert FLAC Audio Files to Apple Lossless Although there's a tiny bug at present (v0.91) meaning it will only convert one file at a time.

In essence, this is due to poor drivers in Windows. The Mac drivers have been created better than those in Windows. The problem is created because the trackpad is waiting for the possible second tap to indicate a double-click. In OS X, the drivers are simply 'smarter' and understand better when you intend to double click or click and move. Indeed, ...
