comment How to open (and read) .txt files using iPhone?
My vote goes towards simplenote. If you subscribe to simplenote, you can also get dropbox note synchronization, which will make it trivial for you to use and access the notes across all your devices, computers, and browsers.

comment How much free space do I need to install an app update?
Also can't wait for Apple to introduce differential updates. For some apps it won't matter, but for others it would make a huge difference since often very little changes from one version to the next, especially the media and artwork, which often dwarfs the code in storage space.

comment How much free space do I need to install an app update?
The workarounds, for now, are to use iTunes, or to delete the app first, then reinstall it. Both are less than ideal, but work for those very large apps that one needs.

Those two issues are separate and you'll probably find what you need with these questions: Battery on white MacBook shuts off abruptly after 30% charge is left and Why does my MacBook Pro die without warning?. For the sluggish issue, try Mac book pro is very slow

comment Does iPad rotate right sooner than it rotates left (or up or down)?
I cannot duplicate this on my ipad gen3, it rotates at the same angle off of center whether going clockwise or counterclockwise. Would be nice if some iPad 2 users tested their units.

comment 27" iMac (fall of 2010) won't shut down
Create a small partition in the extra space on your drive, and load a fresh copy of OS X onto it. If the problem also occurs there, it's likely hardware related. If the problem doesn't occur there, something is wonky with your main installation.

comment Fastest way to get to camera in iOS?
Sadly the "swipe up to go to camera" feature doesn't appear to work on the iPad. I wonder if it works on the iPod touch? Perhaps they left it off so they wouldn't have to detect whether it was an iPad gen1 (no camera) or not.

comment Secondary display with VGA connection resolution issue with Macbook Pro under Snow Leopard
I've seen a lot of DVI-VGA adaptors that don't correctly pass EDID info, so while you don't mention it specifically, it might help others who have this issue and read this question.
