comment Has anybody used Dragon Dictate on OS X with MacVIM
@bradphelan I tested with MacVim. If you can have your macros be triggered by text inserted, it could work

@stuffe OK, looks like gentmatt covered that so I'll post what I found. Since we both have half the answer, how will you award the bounty?

What about the linen when you scroll off the end of the page?

comment Do the three iPad personal hotspot tethering options differ in terms of speed?
It should be noted that you can use Wi-Fi tethering with the device plugged in. This way you get the benefit of charging your device while having the option of sharing the connection with up to 5 devices.

comment 1080p upload to youtube?
I'm seeing a 720p version available now, maybe there's just a delay for some server-side encoding? The 1080p version could be on the way

Do you use Reading List? I have a way to change the linen when you scroll past the page, but I can't yet find a way to change the linen behind the reading list.

comment Where can I purchase repair parts for Apple products?
Thanks for this answer - this is precisely why I was hesitant to just buy a board off eBay. The thing about "one way parts" rings a bell - I had the HD in my MB replaced several years ago by a certified tech, and they would only cover it under warranty if my old drive was sent back. Wish I'd paid the cost and kept it though - there was a lot of stuff on that drive I'd pay to recover now.

I'd known about iFixit, but it looks like their collection of parts has grown dramatically. Any idea where they get them from?

comment Eyefinity PCI Express card with Apple Thunderbolt Display
@HerrKaleun The backward compatibility only goes one way - you can use a Mini DP monitor with a TB Mac. Using a TB monitor with a Mini DP Mac doesn't work. If you don't have TB, you need to get the Mini DP monitor instead.
