comment I was physically robbed and now can't manage my Apple ID… how can I extract my purchases?
@AndrewU. I wiped the phone using FMI. However I cannot reset the password because I have two-step authentication on the account and my only two authentication methods were stolen.

I saw the family sharing thing, have yet to attempt this but I had the same idea. Are you sure that it shares both directions like that?

The fact that I cannot change the password means that this account is even less secure now. It is a design flaw when a system that is suppose to make things more secure makes them less secure.

comment Will a 1.8GHz MacBook Air be much faster than a 1.3GHz model?
FWIW the RAM cannot be upgraded on these so make sure you get the model that has as much as you'll ever want

I have yet to call developer support, I will try that soon. I am wondering if the security is such that not even anyone at Apple can access the account. Kind of like how a password can be hashed.

yeah I hope they fix this soon, not only is it a security flaw because I can't change my password but also I am not going to make any new purchases until this is addressed, I don't want to tie up any more money in a system that I could be locked out of like this

this part cracks me up: As long as you remember your Apple ID password and still have access to one of your trusted devices, you can sign in and create a new Recovery Key. Go to My Apple ID, select "Manage your Apple ID," and sign in. Under Edit your Apple ID, select "Password and Security." Under Recovery Key, select Replace Lost Key and follow the onscreen instructions. NOPE: it asks for the RKEY when I try to login

@JamesManes yep, and after much ado and the rep telling me how much they will surely be able to resolve the issue, they do some digging and say that this is now entirely in my hands which I agreed to when I signed up for two-step... my last ditch effort may be next time I am in Cupertino to show up with a photo-id and a sign that says "I AM ME PLS HALP"

comment What is behind these “squares” of colour appearing on my screen?
Looks like some Google search results are behind them.

comment Delay in keyboard responsiveness after wake with Mountain Lion?
I have this problem. When my MBAir 11" was running Lion I could type my password right away, as soon as the screen came on. Since updating to Mountain Lion I have to stare at the screen for a few seconds before it allows me to key it in, the delay also seems to coincide with the keyboard backlight coming on.

comment As of Mountain Lion, Google Chrome has asked for permission to view my contacts. Does this mean that it has likely had unrestricted access before?
It was only the first time I launched it.

comment Battery life on a core i7 Macbook Air
Keep in mind that these hourly ratings posted by Apple are specifically titled "wireless web": "The wireless web test measures battery life by wirelessly browsing 25 popular websites with display brightness set to 50%."
