@Opt No you can't, you need a Thunderbolt 2 port to run 4K smoothly.

comment How can I force an application to be launched to the 2nd monitor?
@nhgrif I remember these options showing up were sometimes dependent on the way the application was launched (i.e. from Spotlight, the Dock or double clicked in the Applications folder). Could you please try different methods and see if that shows the options?

comment Apps are not opening in Mac
Won't get deleted from my trash. Does this mean there were more files, but they were could be deleted? So maybe an important file has been erased already? Can you still open Console.app? It's found in Applications -> Utilities. It shows you all the system (error) messages. If you can open it, do so and watch what it says when you try to open Google Chrome.

Do note that the reviews all note that the app is quite buggy.

comment Do Macs store a serial number on the disk?
Come to think of it, I once got the motherboard replaced of my MacBook Pro and when I got the laptop back a sticker with the new MAC address was covering the old addres printed on the lower casing. So the MAC address is tied to the board, which can be replaced. I'm not sure though if my serial number changed w.r.t. the one written on the receipt.

But MAC addresses can be changed, right? That makes them not very useful as unique identifiers.

comment How do i rotate the pictures of my iphone/ipad wallpaper every few minutes
Is your iPhone/iPad jailbroken by any chance? That would change the situation and some workarounds would be possible then.

comment Gathering statistics in Mac Dictation
I don't use the feature myself, but maybe the Console (located in Applications -> Utilities) logs these commands? Try the following: Open the Console, go to All Messages, start Dictation, use a command or word, see if it gets logged in the Console.

comment How do I delete my number from iMessage on send and receive from my iMac?
You should try pressing command+comma when the iMessage app is active (i.e. the program names shows in the top left part of the menu bar). Now you have opened your Firefox preferences...

comment How can I change DPI on OS X?
I've the feeling there are more effective ways to solve your problem caused by bad eyesight. 1) Get glasses, this will help you in more ways than just reading your screen 2) You can increase the system font size

comment Phone not showing in Finder (but available for Dropbox)
I think you've several options: 1) copy to the memory card, then on the phone move the file to the internal memory; 2) send the file through Bluetooth; 3) See if programs like SyncMate or Android File Manager work for you.

comment Phone not showing in Finder (but available for Dropbox)
I've a Nokia 6300 and when I use the Media transfer option Image capture shows up (I don't have Dropbox), but I can't find a way to copy file to my phone either. However, the Mass storage option mounts my phone's memory card as a disk on the desktop. I can't copy files to the internal memory through USB.

comment Phone not showing in Finder (but available for Dropbox)
Did you try changing the USB mode in Menu > Settings > Connectivity > USB data cable? It's strange that Dropbox is able to recognise the phone, while it doesn't show in Finder.

comment Do non-smartphones exist that are able to sync with any OS after Mountain Lion?
I thought that the term "dumbphone" implied it didn't have WiFi. Maybe bluetooth. 'Cause with WiFi it's indeed quite easy to set-up syncing.
