comment How to thoroughly waterproof a Macbook?
Thirded. Liquipel will help prevent small accidental spills from doing any serious damage, but the gap between helping minimize spill damage and making a laptop virtually submersible is huge and, as other have stated, pretty much impossible to bridge.

comment Unable to install Internet Explorer on MAC OS X 10.7.4
I'll also add: Internet Explorer used to be available in an old version for Macs, but it only ran under Power PC. Macs starting with Lion (I believe) stopped shipping with Power PC compatibility, meaning that once you have a Mac with Lion or higher installed you cannot run PPC apps like IE.

comment Actual Size Album Art in iTunes 11
I want to be able to view it as I could in previous versions, within the app while it was playing. I spent a decent amount of time and storage space (not tons, but a decent amount considering what it is) getting really nice, hi-res versions of a lot of my albums and now all of that seems wasted.

comment is there anything like ditto for Mac
Alfred isn't as complete as a standalone clipboard manager, but I do use it a lot and love it.

comment Change “reply with message” text
I don't fully understand. When I go to the indicated menu and tap on one of the stock replies, I can enter in a custom one and it seems to overwrite it.

Oh, I see. I only ever use it on the desktop, so I was a little confused about it now working for you.

Yes, unfortunately, sometimes Apple doesn't get around to little things like this.

comment Why does Mail.app translate the :-) smiley into a computer icon?
I think the real question is why does your computer not like :-) to begin with? My computer has never done anything like that.

I think this might be it, here. Expensive and currently out of stock, but it should have what you need at the very least.

comment Understanding active, inactive, free and swap memory allocation
It may just be a characteristic of the OS version you all are running. To be honest, I have the same problems you have pretty frequently, but I have so much stuff on my computer I assume it's a natural consequence and have come to live with it. I'm sorry I can't be of more help.

comment Why does my ipad music player automatically stop playing a song?
It may be that not all of the song was downloaded. Were these tracks bought from iTunes?

comment Why does my ipad music player automatically stop playing a song?
Is it playing song files saved onto the iPad itself? Or is it doing some streaming/downloading, like with iTunes Match?

comment Understanding active, inactive, free and swap memory allocation
This is a minor point, but is your RAM composed of 2x4GB sticks, or 1x8GB stick? I believe having two equal sticks is slightly faster than having one stick. In any case, do things improve if you keep WiFi off?
