comment external disk formated with NTFS not working on Mac
Use Fat32 instead of NTFS and both should be able to write to it.

comment Show iPhone as non-iPhone on network
This is probably dependent on the carrier. Your best best might be to use a prepaid plan.

comment How can I connect 2 non apple screens to my 13" mac book pro?
according to the specs, you can only drive one external display - "Dual display and video mirroring: Simultaneously supports full native resolution on the built-in display and up to 2560 by 1600 pixels on an external display, both at millions of colors"

comment How to use MacBook from my PC
sorry, did not read your question clearly. I think your best option is to get an inexpensive KVM ($30) or just use a VNC client to connect to the Mac

comment Is is possible to use remote desktop to a Mac via direct cable or wireless?
a mini is just a desktop, you can use any usb keyboard/mouse and display with it. You could also use a KVM to share with your windows desktop.

comment Dual NON-APPLE Monitors on Macbook Pro w/ Thunderbolt
AFAIK, daisy-chaining can only be done with Thunderbolt displays. It will not work with DisplayPort.

if you're in Japan or S Korea, I believe there are laws requiring camera phones to have audible shutters.

You can't. Just get a wireless adapter for the desktop.

comment Download free app updates without prompting to enter Apple ID password on iOS 6
I believe this only applies to updates. Installing an app still requires you to enter your password.

comment Why is the home button on iOS devices physical?
A physical button can be located by touch - a soft button requires you to look at the device. It also provides tactile feedback when you push it. And having it located on the front of the device is easy to navigate when holding the device one handed - it is also blatantly obvious to anyone picking up an iPhone for the first time - "this is what I push to make it do something"

comment Is there an iPhone app that acts as a radio signal strength sensor?
I don't think that Apple provides any public APIs for interacting with any of the device radios, and would not approve any app that did so with a private API.

comment Are there external drive enclosures yet with a Thunderbolt interface?
I believe that the GoFlex adapters use SATA internally, so you may be able to use one as a generic TB --> SATA adapter. Google "goflex bare sata" for examples of others trying this.

comment How to print from an iOS device to a remote office?
if the printer is stationary, why is iOS initiating the print job? Why not setup a desktop machine to monitor a shared folder and submit jobs to the printer? And I don't follow how AirPrint will help - if the printer is on a remote network, and your iOS device is on 3G, it will not be able to see the AirPrint printer.

It is just telling you the username you tried is already used by someone else. You need to pick a different username.

comment What is the difference between SSD and flash drives in the latest MacBook Pros?
Flash and SSD are the same thing. The difference in price is because the Retina is a completely new model & form factor (Retina display, no SuperDrive, etc).
