comment iPhone 5 iOS7 no sound only vibrates when ringing?
The accepted answer indicates this isn't the case. Want to remove this? It's wrong and will attract down votes.

comment My MagSafe to MagSafe 2 converter becomes extremely hot. Why?
Answers that are speculation and offer no corroborating support here attract down votes. I suggest either finding some source to offset your lack of "electrical guru"-ness or deleting this.

comment macbook pro 15" mid 2012 with 16gb works slow
You're going to need to quantify "slow" here -- in comparison to what? How they used to run? Is it limited to just Adobe software? Have you contacted them for help? When you run an Adobe product and watch the Console is there any output that might indicate what the problem happens to be? Error messages? This remains closed pending more clarification.

comment How to restore a hidden file in Time Machine?
The window redraw has the same effect as a Finder restart FWIW. I wouldn't say it's faster, but having the ability to detect and toggle state is nice.

comment Xcode 3.2 - Directly link to URL
What does "link an app directly to a URL" mean? You'll need to be clearer here -- it's not answerable the way you've worded it. Consider screen shots that explain what you're trying to do in Xcode if it helps make things clearer.

comment Creating symlinks in “~/Library/Application Support/minecraft” that point to Dropbox, but “the original item for ”[file]“ can’t be found.”
That's odd. You shouldn't need a symlink made by root (what happens when you sudo ln) here. It's all in directories you own.

comment Trying to get a Symlink but it turns to be an Alias
The spurious quotes might be your problem. Have you tried: ln -s /MacintoshHD/Backup ~/Library/Application\ Support/MobileSync?

comment Check brew and brew-cask for valid package names
Why not just attempt the install and report failure if the return code isn't 0? What does pre-determining get you that attempting to install and detecting failure doesn't?

comment iPhone 5s not registering steps data in iOS 8 Health app
What is "steps and walking & running"? Is this an app? What are you expecting to see that you are not seeing? Let's see if we can get this in to better shape and then reopen it. It's impossible to answer clearly with the information given right now.

If I knew, I'd have posted it as an answer. :)

comment Used Air Drop to move a folder with mp3 files in it to my phone. Where are they now?
AFAIK the only way to get music files in to the Music app is via direct sync with an iTunes instance running on a PC or Mac or via iCloud Music Match. There is no import via AirDrop capabilities.

comment garage band imports are playing at unintellible tempo/pitch
Check the sample rate setting on your Garage Band project and your audio interface -- they need to match. What you're describing sounds like mismatched sample rates.
