comment Is charging iPhone all night harmful to my iPhone?
Please provide a reference for this statement: "However to my understanding, as part of that process, if it is left in the charger beyond the point when it is charged, it will start going through charge cycles - discharging a little bit and filling back up - as part of a safety measure, and those little charge cycles will add up over time. " As an electrical engineer I've not yet seen a lithium polymer charger that does this by design, so I'm very curious.

comment I cannot find an app
I have that on my iPad. It was one of the very early apps to use multi touch in an interesting way. To adjust the thickness and color of the boids you'd use all ten fingers. One finger would shoot boids away from it. Two would capture boids nearby, three would capture and spin all boids, 5 would pause all boids, etc. I don't recall the name at the moment, but it has been updated in the last two years, so it may still be available and searchable on the store. I still have it loaded on my ipad, but that's not with me at the moment, so if I don't post an answer in a day or two, remind me.

@erdekhayser "A little deceptive, but isn't that a part of parenting?" I hope not. Certainly not a part of good parenting.

comment Headphones Jack not pluggable into Macbook-pro retina socket
Shine a flashlight into the jack and see if there's anything in there preventing full insertion. If not, use a paperclip to push on each contact inside to make sure they move freely with a little force. Examine the headphone plug to make sure it is round and hasn't been damaged. Try it in another device with a headphone jack, and try a different headphone in this jack. If none of this works, report back and tell use what you found at each step.
