I am not a hippopotamus. I apologize in advance for any inconveniences this may cause.


As of August 2014, I'm a student at Brown University. I love photography, tech support, graphic design, coding, and loads of other things. Though I'm somewhat of an introvert, I really love talking with people. Drop me a line!

comment Can't disable “Press the Option key five times to turn Mouse Keys on and off”
"went to the appropriate place in System Preferences to disable this, … but it's greyed out." I no longer have the problem, so it's moot, but your answer doesn't address my question.

comment How can I tell iTunes to stop playing a song?
Your answer is utterly false. Since time of asking (at which point even then your answer was incorrect), iTunes now lets one stop playback with command-period or the respective menu item.

comment Banning domains temporarily from local access
There are dozens of browser extensions and apps that do that automatically. Would that be acceptable, or are you really looking to do it through AppleScript or something?

comment Are old podcast episodes removed from the iTunes store?
Nearly all of the podcasts I linked to are still updating, so that's definitely not the issue. However, I didn't know that podcast episodes aren't hosted on Apple's servers. Is that the case, or did I misunderstand? If so, it seems to me like that's the most likely explanation.

comment Is there an app that lets me use an iPhone as a mouse?
Okay, good luck! I've spent ages searching and so far the most promising things have all turned out to be of the waving-the-iPhone-in-the-air variety.

comment Is there an app that lets me use an iPhone as a mouse?
@NickT Obviously this is quite different, but there are apps that measure your pulse with the camera. It simply detects the changes in brightness. I'd imagine it might be possible to make this work even with the very blurry image you'd get.

comment Is there an app that lets me use an iPhone as a mouse?
Thank you, but this does not address my question. "I'm looking for an app which enables me to physically maneuver my iPhone on the desk to control my Mac's cursor. (I am not looking for a "remote trackpad" app—there are dozens of those.)"

comment Is there an app that lets me use an iPhone as a mouse?
I have downloaded the iOS and Mac apps, and I've spent the last 15 minutes or so looking through every setting to make sure I'm not missing anything, and the nearest thing I can find is a feature which lets me wave my iPhone in the air to control it. It sounds like you're convinced it does work the way I want though; is there something I'm still missing somehow?

comment Once iOS files are backed up to iCloud, can you access them programmatically?
This doesn't quite address the question—Hugo is looking for a way to access his iCloud backups programmatically.

comment Is there an app that lets me use an iPhone as a mouse?
@MatthieuRiegler That description implies I want to wave it around in the air. I want to slide it around on a mousepad—even just the camera could be used, fairly accurately I'd imagine.

comment How can I get persistent Dictionary popups to go away?
That sounds like it will work for when it occurs in Spotlight, since as Nathan said above the popup is owned by the parent app and removing it requires killing the parent app, but not if it happens in a normal application.

comment How can I stop Safari from playing videos on a site automatically?
Of course, if this is only in the context of unwanted, noisy ads, just use an ad blocker.

You should accept this answer, if you're sure this is what solved your problem!

comment Why does Time Machine's backup size not equal the size of my hard drive?
Are you saying 113 GB is the total capacity of your hard drive, or the amount of used space on it?

But if the springboard is frozen, how do you get to the Settings app?

comment Can any Apple software create “photo montage” still frame from a video file?
This seems like a lot of hassle, but you definitely could have proper placement that way: stack all the images together, use Instant Alpha, and mask them. Alternatively, Photoshop works on Mac, and you can import video frames as layers, which you could mask yourself. I expect that's what the creator of your example here used.
