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

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.

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?

@AndrewLarsson Why do you say that?

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.

comment Generating cross-platform eBooks on a Mac?
As TomG said earlier, you can export to EPUB from Pages, or use one of numerous utilities which may do a questionable job (as far as that goes, Pages may, too, but EPUB is really the only cross-platform ebook format).

comment Where that icon on my OS X menu bar comes from?
@MartinMetodiev That's so weird. Maybe try going through your Applications folder (sorted by date modified, probably) to see if you can find it.

comment Why does iOS insist on using my Facebook email address?
Well, you'll want the contact to have your real name, or else it'll fill "Hello Kitty" in web forms! But this solution definitely does work.

@IconDaemon No. I'm probably not looking for a tablet-specific solution, though.

comment App Store on iOS keeps asking for another user's iTunes credentials
Is there a pattern in the apps that require your password? Is it simply every app you've purchased?

comment What solutions are available for using iPad as an extended desktop?
(This isn't arguing or anything; I'm merely presenting data.) Air Display ($10) has 3 stars on the iOS App Store. The only other alternatives I've found (for Mac) are iDisplay ($5), also with 3 stars, and DisplayPad ($3), with 5 stars. Be aware, though, that certain graphics cards are incompatible with DisplayPad.
