comment How to increase the size of the OS X user interface without lowering the resolution?
@jmlumpkin Yeah, I remember playing around with it years ago and you're right, nothing looked good at all. With this, it looks like it could almost ship

@AdamDavis Yes, sorry, I should have mentioned that

comment Can I get system sound along with QuickTime Player screen recording?
True. I also added a paragraph about using separate apps to record so you get two tracks. You'll have to line them up by hand though.

comment Can anything cause the battery “cycles count” to appear higher than it really is?
Just to be clear, you never plug and unplug throughout the day, it's plugged in at most one time each day?

It's easily possible the number of cycles exceeds the number of days owned, just in this case Daniel says it's not.

comment Does the D-Link DIR-857 support streaming Time Machine backups from multiple machines?
@IanC. You can still do all that with your current setup, and use the Time Machine as a switch that happens to do backups

@IanC. What needs do you have for your network that a Time Capsule or Airport Extreme won't handle?

comment Does PhotoStream copy videos too or just still photos?
Annoying, but true. I can understand why it's undesirable to upload, store, and download videos from an internet service, but you'd think Apple could have been clever and done something like Dropbox LAN sync and sent the videos over wifi if it detected another interested party on the LAN

comment Is there a way to have iOS remember passwords to HTTP authenticated sites?
Adding the username and password in the URL in a bookmark is clever - I can't find a way to do it on the device, but I'll try creating it on my Mac and syncing it over. Thanks!

Is it possible that it's already installed? You can set iCloud to automatically download apps to multiple devices when they're purchased.

comment What other browsers are available for iPad
I'm sorry, but this question is too open-ended. If you have specific requirements, feel free to post a software-recommendation with those requirements. If you're looking to compile a list, it needs to be done in a more curated manner.

It's standard OS X screenshot stuff. I know the screenshot doesn't really do anything, but the post looked a little short/bland.

comment What's the startup/reboot time for iPad (3rd generation) compared to other iOS devices?
@Moshe I don't think so, unless it's jailbroken, but maybe someone else knows? Might be a good question to ask.

comment How do I import files into GarageBand on iPod touch?
@TomBrito Make sure your Garageband song section length is set to "automatic" - tap that small "+" under the gear to change it. Once it's set to automatic, your entire file should be editable, assuming you have enough space on your device.
