comment iPhone use in Thailand
I don't know about the Verizon part of this, but as a long term resident of Thailand I can confirm that you will have no problem getting a local SIM card at the airport, with great deals for voice and data. 2 of the 3 main carriers - TrueMove and Dtac - have 4g, while the market leader AIS is only 3G, although this is fast, reliable, with coverage over the whole country. Cost is around USD20 for voice plus 5gb of data. From time to time the carriers give away free SIM cards at the airport with 5 minutes of international call time and some data, so check for deals.

I had the same issue, but the 1.0.1 release, which came out yesterday, seemed to fix it for me

comment Is there an app that downloads websites including media files needing a log-in?
Have you considered a browser extension such as Down Them All (downthemall.net)? I think it could do what you want as it piggybacks off your browser and any cookies.

comment iOS8: Spotlight keyboard missing
I get the same from time to time. Annoying if you use Spotlight to launch apps a lot. Seems to be random.

comment FaceTime on my iPad
I had the same, for me it was the fact that the screen was showing Video, when the missed calls were actually on the Audio tab. Switching to the Audio tab meant that when I closed FaceTime, the numbers were gone.

comment Is it possible to change an adult account to a child one?
@JamieBullock that is strange, not sure why it doesn't work for you. I did it for my 2 boys without any problem. Not sure what could be different. Was there a credit card or gift card on the account? Maybe that would somehow lock it?

comment Complicated iOS upgrade - no wifi, no computer
To fix the Wifi, have you tried resetting network settings? This sometimes works. Go to Settings > General > Reset > Reset Network Settings.

I would love to hear other people's experience of this -- i find the same problem, and want to know if it's the way i have my network set up, or if it's something about Mac networking.

comment How can I copy the full smb:// link from a file in Finder?
Aha. TotalFinder (totalfinder.binaryage.com) gives quite a selection of ways to copy paths (Windows, Posix, UNC, HFS, Terminal, URL), but nothing i can see with the server name.

There is an option in WinShortcutter to copy the path either Windows-style or OS X style (forward or backwards slashes) -- not sure if that will do what you want.
