comment What's the difference between iTunes Match and Apple Music?
I think what Apple is trying to convey is that Apple Music itself is not only a paid service, as it also includes Beats 1 and Connect, which is both free. The two of them will work along with iTunes Match. But if you are to subscribe to Apple Music, it wouldn't make sense to have iTunes Match.

Check the specification! It's on Apple's website somewhere!

comment Can an iPad be charged while acting as a USB host?
An accessory does let iPad charge when in used, the 30-pin to HDMI adapter for iPad, but the HDMI signal comes from 30-pin, not USB protocol.

comment How to navigate google search results in Safari 8 with keyboard?
I think you can look into Google's keyboard shortcut list or try in some other browsers to see if Safari is the cause.

comment How many TSI I am allowed to submit?
Off the top of my head, I believe two tickets came with the program. You may purchase more. You might want to first investigate by yourself why.

Absolutely. I'm glad this solves your question.

Lastly, the quad-core CPU does offer more cores for you to scale, or for you to test your application on more than just a few cores, see if your app can be threaded well. You should also notice that by going with a model without discrete graphics, the integrated graphics will take some memory away, more than what a model with discrete will(it still will, but less as you will switch to discrete when running VM.) I've ran a bunch of VMs on my home/school server. I'm more bounded by RAM always. But for development work, I would consider the 15" to more suitable.

Also, you're not specific about how many VMs there will be, obviously the ideal situation will be 1 to 1, one virtual core to a physical core/thread. That would offer the best performance. I once ran 8 VMs at the same time, all doing intensive I/O on an external drive. The performance is quite limited by the amount of RAM, and the CPU seems fine. I'm using a 1st generation 15" Retina MacBook Pro but with 8 GB of memory.

The dual core i7 can do virtualization just fine. In a development environment, your not going to get a lot of queries on both your IIS and SQL Server. You're looking at near instant performance there. What you should be concerned about is what takes time, for example, compiling and indexing symbol in Visual Studio. Is your project going to be so big that dual core would take too much time to compile?

comment Tunnel all traffic over HTTP
I don't think it's possible. But I would setup server-side terminal web app. So you can have terminal access to all of your servers, at least.

comment How can I use Audio Midi Setup utility to create a multi-output device with multiple AirPlay speakers?
I think airfoil can do this. But that would be using a third-party app.

comment Macbook pro stuck on 'About a second remaining' for an hour
Well, if it does stop to respond. You have no choice but to do it all over again it seems. Although use Dusk Utility to check for disk failure, for both source and destination, and put the log window up front when installing do you can see logs if something does happen again. (Remember to choose "Show All Log" and not just errors.)
