comment Why do I have to drag my new apps into the application folder?
@Drew So the difference between an installer and a dmg with an app in it is simply copying the app to the /Applications directory. This answer (by XQYZ) states why apps are distributed as dmg format, so to answer the question, why do you expect you to drag/drop it? Because it's convention but not required. So they give you the option but you could put it wherever you want. An installer doesn't make sense because the developer doesn't know where you want to place the app. Installers are used when you need to write more files than just an app.

I can confirm that QuickTime X can play AMR files. I just downloaded one and tested it.

comment How Do I Run Xcode
Also note you can use Spotlight to open applications. Press CMD+Space and type the name "Xcode" and it should be the first hit under the Applications heading.

comment Debugging Wifi issues on my iPhone
"Sometimes I try to connecte to a Wifi network..." Can you elaborate. Is it always the same network having issues. Do you connect successfully one time and another time it doesn't work? Is this a public network or work/school network?

Is this referring to Automatically Add to iTunes because I don't understand how this relates to Dropbox.

comment Can I make an iTunes playlist comprised solely of songs that lack iTunes genius information?
The only thing that comes to mind is writing an AppleScript but I don't know if you can determine if a song lacks genius info. The only script I found dealing with iTunes's Genius is this: dougscripts.com/itunes/scripts/…

comment Print HTML to PDF while retaining hyperlinks
I can't confirm if this works, but something you might consider is converting from HTML to LaTeX. Then convert from LaTeX to PDF since LaTeX is a common way to create hyperlinks in a PDF.

comment How does iPhone's facetime work even when the phone function is off?
@bmike What I'm curious about is what happens when you have two devices (say an iPhone 4 and iPad) using the same AppleID? Do they both ring when someone calls?

comment How does iPhone's facetime work even when the phone function is off?
@VxJasonxV I distinctly remember flicking the switch to turn on Facetime when I got my iPhone 4 and receiving a verification text. The reason being I had SMS blocked and I had to get it unblocked to get the text and enable Facetime.

comment Which OS X Applications do you find indispensable?
@CarlosZ Thank you! I knew there was a way to do it but I forgot. But I'm like @Cawas at this point: I rarely maximize anymore after switching from Windows (where it seems like everyone maximizes).

comment Finder Cover Flow Icon Preview not working
When you hit spacebar, does a preview come up in quicklook? It looks like you have Adobe Reader installed so maybe that has something to do with it. Do other file types show a preview?

@RobZolkos The split seemed successful but I couldn't get unzip to work (or even Archive Utility).

comment All pages in Google Chrome are rendered with a very thin, bad looking serif font
If reseting the fonts back to default don't do anything, I would suggest just uninstalling and reinstalling Chrome. Serif fonts are not the default, that's for sure.

comment Can I hide the “All on My iPhone” option in iPhone's Contacts app?
I could be wrong, but this is not the case when someone calls you for the first time and you tap "Add new contact" in order to add them. I'm not sure if this changed in iOS4 but this always saves it to my phone rather than gmail's contacts.

comment Automatically arrange icons on the Mac OS 10.6 desktop in groups
@Lars I don't think this is a feature, but rather a glitch that @bmike explained in his answer. Maybe you could try placing only 5 icons on your desktop, connecting the external display, and then see if anything happens. Does it happen every time you connect the display?
