comment Set audio output source per application
So change it after you plug the headphones in. You can also change the sound output by holding down the option key when pressing the sound control in the menu bar. That makes it very quick and easy to check and change settings.

comment My calendar won't work on my iPhone 4 since upgrading to iOS8. I am unable to save events
Are you sure it's an iPhone 4 and not a 4S? The oldest device that iOS 8 supports is the iPhone 4S.

comment Is there the way to resolve RAM problems?
Then you are up pretty late, Google tells me it's currently 4:41am in Moscow right now. I'd suggest trying to sell it to a somebody with a PC. There tolerances are not at tight as Apple's and it will probably work fine in a PC. My recommendation for where to buy Macintosh upgrades probably won't do you any good either.

Most stores will accept returns as long as it is not damaged. Check the store's return policy.

comment Graphic noise in OSX
That wouldn't be unheard of. You could try running Disk Utility's "Fix Permissions" for the disk in question.

The best thing to do would be to boot from a separate partition or hard drive. If you don't have one available, the next best is create a fresh account on the machine. If it doesn't happen with either one of these, it's probably a corrupt file somewhere. If it does happen, it doesn't necessarily mean that it's hardware either. Taking it to the Genius bar at an Apple store is your best bet for getting it fixed quickly.

comment Graphic noise in OSX
It's probably a hardware problem. I've seen symptoms like this on a few different systems. It was fixed by taking it to Apple and getting the motherboard replaced. As for the cause, it's hard to tell.

comment Downloaded an app from App Store but it never appeared on my iPod touch
Did you use the home screen's search feature to try and find it? What OS is running on your iPod? What generation of iPod Touch is it?

comment How do I require password prompt EVERY time I close my MacBook's lid?
Closing the lid with an external monitor attached doesn't put it to sleep anymore. I enable this option and also set the upper right as a "Hot Corner" (Screen Saver Preference panel) to start the screen saver. When I leave my system, I flick the cursor to the upper right corner and my system is locked with the screen saver running. Unfortunately, the "Put Display to Sleep" Hot Key option, doesn't lock the system like normal sleep does.

comment Headphones only play right side
No Apple computer or device require 4 part connectors. They work fine with no audio problems with both 3 and 4 part connectors.

comment Can I copy the entire scrollback buffer from iTerm2 to the clipboard?
There is a setting in iTerm 2 that automatically copies anything selected to the clipboard, making the Command-C unnecessary.

Yes. I wasn't able to keep that setup for long, but it worked well while it lasted.

comment When can they use ESC to close windows?
These are just guidelines. The developer can choose to ignore or extend them. You can find plenty of examples and counter examples in Apple's own apps.

All you should have to do is turn it on. Are you having a specific problem?

comment What are my (hardware) options from migrating an account from an MBA?
In that case it will pay to be patient. Set up Time Machine machine drive and go to bed. Likewise with the restore.
