comment Why does my iMac reboot every day at the same time?
This was my first thought, too. I'd be surprised if you set this up accidentally, but if OP shares that work/living space with another person, they might be playing a little prank.

comment Legality of iTunes sharing
I disagree that using it at work is a problem. By "noncommercial" they almost certainly mean that you can't use the feature to make money. Basically, they're saying you can't rent out access to your music library. It doesn't mean (IMO, I'm not a lawyer) that you can't use it outside your house.

Also worth noting: Both generations of iPad are supported.

comment Buying apps with different AppleID than one used to buy OS X Lion
I'm with Philip. There's no reason to use someone else's Apple ID to download a free upgrade to Lion.

comment full wireless keyboard for iMac
Then you can buy any wireless keyboard. If you buy one designed for PCs, it will work, but the Windows key will be the Command (Apple) key in OS X.

Do you care if it's not manufactured by Apple?

comment Is it possible to determine the model of an iOS device by its MAC address?
I did find a way to do this, but not by MAC address. We use Exchange Server for email, and it keeps track of all devices used to sync to email accounts. I had my sysadmin run scripts on the server to pull the device info. As it turns out, about 20% of iOS devices in use on our mail server are old enough to not support iOS 5. Almost 10% won't support iOS 4. This isn't a great sample (it leaves out the public and people on-campus who don't use their iOS devices for college mail), but it was the best we could do, given that we don't own most of the devices in use.

comment Is it possible to determine the model of an iOS device by its MAC address?
This would be a great answer if I was developing an app to be used exclusively on devices we own. Maybe I should have been more clear in my question, but that's not the case here. I work at a college, and the app I'm working on will be used by faculty, staff, students, alumni, visitors, donors, and curious outsiders. We only provide iOS devices to cabinet members and a few critical departments (shared devices). The question was a way for me to figure out what devices are in use on our campus, nearly none of which we (institutionally) own. (Read the comments above, though: I did figure it out.)

comment Is it possible to determine the model of an iOS device by its MAC address?
Yes, of course. However, there are some very nice new development tools that are iOS 5-specific (I'm looking at you, Storyboarding). I'd like to use them, but I need to determine if it's feasible to support only iOS 5. (I'm guessing not, but I'd like to be surprised.)
