Budding iOS/Mac developer, trying to learn as much as I can from wherever I can, and develop some best practices along the way.

comment Locate iPhone without an internet connection
I think he means the dial tone ringing, though. Because if he could hear the device itself ringing, then it wouldn't be lost.

comment Locate iPhone without an internet connection
"It does not have an Internet connection. That is, no 3G, no 4g and it is not in a wi-fi zone." The wording is a bit funny because it refers to Internet connectivity, but I think the OP is saying it's got zero connectivity at all.

Even without cellular connectivity?

comment Emptying Camera Roll on iOS 6
I definitely feel your pain there. I've got iPhoto running on my iMac 24/7 to suck up the photos I take each day. Only rarely do I set my 4S in the dock and actually end up having any photos to manually sync. It'd be nice to have a way to delete unsync'd photos from the device without an external means.

This isn't really a solution to the problem posed, so much as a comment.

comment How to mute the camera shutter sound effect?
As I don't have connectivity with the Verizon 4S, myhd may be correct. As it stands, though, it was able to be muted without connectivity. So it could also be something to do with the installed carrier settings.

@AlainKing Would you mind posting your comment as an answer so that I can accept it?

comment How to mute the camera shutter sound effect?
@Gerry The 4S I use here is from the local au/KDDI carrier. I've still got my 4S from Verizon at home, so when I'm done for the day I'll check it out and report back.

Thank you for bringing this to my attention. Would've never thought it to be a localized issue like that, but sure enough, Google does in fact agree with the sentiment. Thank you very much!

Now THAT... is interesting. And Google definitely seems to corroborate's that. Mind making it an answer so I can +1/accept it? Seems like some good stuff to know.

comment Finance app for personal and business
+1 for Mint. It's a great service that's helped me wrangle my unruly financial management skills under control. I've been using it for two years now, and have yet to have any personal data (that I know of) leaked to the public. In contrast, I've had my PII (Personally Identifiable Information) potentially stolen from my employer (US Navy) several times in the past year.

comment Xcode for iPad?
@hhh Yes. Provided the machine you purchase meets the requirements for Xcode (e.g., OS X 10.7.4 or later), you can use any Mac for development.

comment Xcode for iPad?
@hhh That is correct. The only way that you could run Xcode on a Windows machine is if you were to set up a Virtual Machine running the Mac OS platform, or some other sort of thirt-party workaround. Otherwise, the only official source is via an official Apple system.

comment Xcode for iPad?
To quote the Wikipedia article: "iOS is derived from OS X, with which it shares the Darwin foundation, and is therefore a Unix operating system. iOS is Apple's mobile version of the OS X operating system used on Apple computers."

comment Xcode for iPad?
@hhh It does in a way. iOS is a much smaller, streamlined version of the Mac OS operating system that's optimized for Apple's line of mobile devices.

comment Ambient light sensor not working when moving from light to dark rooms with an iPhone or iPad
Excellent article, thank you for pointing me in the right direction. Though it doesn't do much to fix the problem, it gives me hope for a fix for the future. Also, the problem seems to be afflicting my 4S as well.

comment Ambient light sensor not working when moving from light to dark rooms with an iPhone or iPad
Thank you, but as I said: I've got no problems with the display brightening; it's just a matter of having it go back to darker levels when I go back into a darker room. Watching my wife's new iPad last night, I noticed that it eventually darkened after a good five minutes of inactivity or so. But at that point you might as well just lock the screen then turn it on again.
