comment MacBook Pro battery and speed issues
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.

comment How to find a good replacement iPhone e-reader app?
@Senseful Additional sort options are available on the app store for iPad. I do all my app store searching on the ipad now, and load apps by name on the iphone once I've decided, since the iPad app store shows iPhone/iPod and iPad apps.

@TorbenGundtofte-Bruun I use a combination of GoodReader for most computer style documents (word, PDF, etc) and iBooks which supports epub. I suggest you post your own question with your specific requirements, you're bound to get a ton of recommendations so be as specific as you can about what you need, and what you liked about stanza.
