comment Does Facebook's “find friend” algorithm get data from the iOS app?
Downloading an iOS app only involves you and Apple -- the app developer doesn't get anything, except for knowing that they've had a download. Actually running the app is a different story, but that's not what you're asking here. If it's what you meant to ask, I suggest editing your question.

comment How do I backup photos *from* iCloud Photo Library
That won't do the trick, because once the MacBook is only storing thumbnails then only the thumbnails will be backed up. What is needed is a way to copy the cloud's versions of the master files onto the backup disk -- I don't know of one.

comment How does iPhone 5 get indoor altitude?
@demonguy Skyhook offers such a database as a commercial product -- Apple used to use the Skyhook database before they developed their own.

comment How to tell if service centre installed tampered MacOS?
As I say, if they're just trying to save money or work then there would be no point in doing this. And if they're malicious, then you can no longer trust your hardware as well as the OS.

comment Moving from Stanza to another eBook reader on my iPad Air
No, MegaReader lets you read your own books as well, and interfaces with Calibre (though you might need to use Calibre2ODPS). You can just ignore the built-in libraries of free books.

comment How does iPhone 5 get indoor altitude?
@demonguy OK, that's interesting -- I'm not sure how that would work. Maybe it does use the barometer as well to give the relative altitude from the known base point.

@demonguy Apple have cars driving around building up the wifi database. Since those cars are not indoors, they also have GPS signal, and so can determine the exact location including altitude at which they have seen the wifi network.

@w3d They're not GPS and barometer, they're GPS and wifi database. I'll edit to make it clearer.

comment OS X 10.5.8 - can I upgrade the OS?
I wouldn't necessarily agree with @Tetsujin. I run Yosemite on my late 2010 MacBook Air, which is considerably less powerful than your iMac (same RAM but only a 1.6GHz CPU), and it runs perfectly. Admittedly it has an SSD rather than a hard disk, and that makes a big difference.
