comment Can ghost app updates be cleared in OS X?
FWIW, I had this problem with 6 apps (including some of Apple's), and ejecting my attached bootable backup drive (then closing/re-opening the Mac App Store) got rid of the extra "Updates Available" list items. Thanks!

comment Can I manually re-calibrate the iPhone 4 compass?
I'm not using my compass app for wayfinding or something which requires extreme precision — I just wanted the maps app to show my orientation with an acceptable degree of accuracy.

comment 2008 iMac Running OS X 10.8.2 Won't Boot
I did the RAM swap earlier this afternoon—no luck. Good call on the hardware repair—I'll get an estimate and see where I stand.

The noise does appear on the Apple logo screen. I actually can't get any further into the boot than that screen. Fixing a hardware issue will be probably be cost-prohibitive in this case, given how difficult iMacs are to get "into", and the fact that this is an old "spare" machine for me.

I'll give this a try when I get back to the machine later tonight.
