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 How can I get `defaults write com.apple.screencapture` to change screen capture location in Mountain Lion
+1 for this. As well, have you made sure to include the "location" portion of the command? I forgot to do this myself a couple times and never got any correction from the command line.

comment What hidden features have you found in iOS 6?
@ughoavgfhw Just confirmed with a few different app searches, and it doesn't always happen, but when it does, it only shows as a "Top Hit", but nothing else.

Not all the time; I've had hit-or-miss luck with this, sometimes it just shows "Top Hit" for search queries.

comment What hidden features have you found in iOS 6?
@EnricoSusatyo That's a negative. Being able to consolidate messages received to a phone number is a new feature specific to iOS 6.

comment Who else besides Apple typically offers Iphone preorders?
A good strategy that I used when I first decided to go with a new phone was to determine which carrier you're going to go with, and have both their website and Apple's website queued up and ready to go when pre-orders go live. That way, you're guaranteed a slot regardless of whether one source sells out (both the iPhone 4 and iPhone 4S pre-orders were exhausted fairly quickly).

comment Why not use 1080p cameras for both front and back cameras on an iPad?
@bmike Fair enough and noted for future reference, thank you.

comment Is there anything special about the “Applications” folder?
Outstanding, thank you! You'll get zhe bounty in 19 hours and counting. Again, thank you very much.

@bmike No problem. Just curious about the hardware, and possible explanations for the choices therein (confirmed through the FAQ that I can ask questions related to hardware).

+1 for parts availability, specifically at the launch of a new device. Though as far as the front camera's quality being negligible, that's not entirely true. I was having a FaceTime session with a friend of mine, and when he rotated the feed around to the HD camera on back to show me something, there was a night and day difference (obviously).

comment Can I save iCloud documents to the Documents folder as well as to iCloud?
Sounds to me like they want to have the iCloud equivalent of "offline documents". Which, as far as I understand, is how iCloud works anyway. You save it to the "iCloud" destination, and it ensures that you've got a version backed up in the cloud.

comment Can the iSight camera perform facial recognition at the lock/login screen?
Agreed. Looks like it may be able to replace the one on Windows, but I'm skeptical of that as well. At best, it looks like it's a face-based password storage utility for other sites and services.

comment My iPhone 4S has been destroyed… can I backup from the cloud at a later time?
It's a rough estimate, usually indicating the worst case scenario for full restore.

comment What causes me to be unable to burn Windows 7 ISO due to a medium error?
A valid suggestion. I'll give it a shot with an Ubuntu image when I get home.

comment What causes me to be unable to burn Windows 7 ISO due to a medium error?
The brand name escapes me at the moment (as I said, it was a brand I've never encountered before). And no, I didn't try any other bootable images for lack of need of any other bootable images.

comment What causes me to be unable to burn Windows 7 ISO due to a medium error?
Yes. I tried more than once with several different discs, and it always ended up with the same results.

comment Being asked to log into a different account on Mac App Store?
Yeah, was having the same issues myself when I tried to make a purchase the other day. After resetting my password five or six times, I eventually had an Apple representative tell me that it was a bug on their end. Good to know!

comment Some information about an extra SSD drive in MacBook Pro
It is. Absolutely zero issues during the install whatsoever, and now my 2011 17" MBP has the same pep as my 2012 MBA.

comment Does Remote Wipe securely wipe the contents of the drive?
So that being said, I'm assuming you could contact Apple to retrieve the encryption key (for a fee) and retrieve the contents of your drive? And if that is the case, why not just lock it?

Though I can't verify the success of it, it looks like that exact question was posed (and answered) here: apple.stackexchange.com/questions/25932/…

comment Some information about an extra SSD drive in MacBook Pro
This is true, those particular paths are located on your SSD, but for things like Music, I believe those paths are controlled from within iTunes.
