comment Why do full-screen applications change their order in Mission Control?
Memories of the days that I didn't know how to take proper screenshots. Even though I swear I learned in like 2008...

Given George's answer, I think a reference answer here is nice.

comment Jailbreaking a stolen iPhone 5S after remote wipe from Find My iPhone
Details appreciated. (edit) Oh, I see, you answered as well. I really don't think anything in my answer is wrong. When something is stolen, software can always be circumvented. Physical access is total access is ALWAYS true. No, they may not be able to reactivate it, but if someone wants your data, cellular network activation is meaningless.

comment Is there a PoE (Power over Ethernet) kit available for the 802.11ac Airport Extreme?
POE doesn't let you power routing hardware, it lets you power downstream hardware, like IP phones, etc.

comment When can they use ESC to close windows?
Apps that don't obey one or the other, are terrible. Apps that obey neither, are worse. Literally rage-inducing.

iTunes is pretty good at interfacing with and controlling iOS devices.

comment Is it safe to keep iPhone's Hotspot on?
Because you have to accept the pair explicitly. It's not password based. Not to mention the radio distance for Bluetooth is so much shorter than wifi.

comment Is there a hotkey to Search Wikipedia for “x”?
Other options: Always use a browser. If you use Chrome, you can set up a custom search engine for Wikipedia, type wp, hit tab, type in the name of the article, enter. Alfred has a quickly selectable search wikipedia for 'x' option, as do many other Spotlight replacements.

comment Amplify mic even more
Wanting to intentionally overdrive your signal is not a standard feature of media players, so few have implemented is. My original answer still stands.

comment Amplify mic even more
Haha, wow. I do know what you're talking about, but I don't have any clue about what goes on to actually send the audio signal to have any sort of suggestion for this. Amplification in general stands as my answer, but it's hard to make a more specific recommendation.

comment How do I resubmit a podcast to iTunes after Apple has rejected it once?
Pardon the bluntness, but what exactly are we supposed to do about it? Feed Validators do agree that it's valid, it seems like your media is accessible, I'm sure you've done equally as much checking or more. What exactly are you asking us to do/help with?

comment Jailbreaking a stolen iPhone 5S after remote wipe from Find My iPhone
@MacLemon Reasoning? I admit I don't actually know much of the details because I've never had to use it. And I don't want to wipe my phone to test it :P.

comment What Window Management Options exist for OS X?
I couldn't tell you if it's updated or not, but it's worked the same as the day that I first used it. Perfectly well. It suits my transition from built-in display, to thunderbolt display, and even multi display. The "press twice to cycle" feature is really amazingly good. I still love it and put it to use constantly.

comment What is the resolution of the Apple Thunderbolt Display's built-in camera?
And the answer is 1280x720, or more succinctly, 720p. I probably should have figured that.
