comment Connecting iPad to a USB powered monitor?
If it's a solution, don't post it as as a comment. Post it as a solution and accept it (assuming it solves your problem).

comment Privacy with individual deleted txt
Questions about why Apple does things the way they do are largely speculative in their answers. In this particular case we cannot know why Apple has chosen this particular implementation.

You're going to need to provide more details. You don't even mention iTunes in the body of your question or the title. How is iTunes involved? How are things set up with respect to itunes? What do your non-Apple devices have to do with the whole setup?

Because they add nothing to the answer. This is not a chat forum. Commenting that "you'd like another answer" on an existing answer is not constructive.

Can you see the WiFi network listed under Settings > WiFi? If you can see it, can you join it?

comment iPhone 5s forwarding automatically to another phone in the household after iOS 8 is installed
This answer could be greatly improved by expanding on "you have to go in and turn those off" to provide explicit, step-by-step, instructions for "going in" and "turning off" things. Answers that aren't fully spelled on out Ask Different tend to get down voted. For more information on how Ask Different and the StackExchange Q&A format works please see our FAQ.

comment Creating and modifying tags hangs Finder in OS X 10.9 Mavericks
If force quitting Finder fixes the problem, how long does it stay fixed for? Indefinitely? Until the system sleeps and resumes? A few minutes? It sounds like maybe your Spotlight database is corrupt.

I suggest familiarizing your self with the Stack Exchange Q&A format before posting your first question. This question is missing lots of details and is unanswerable. For example, what is "the same problem" exactly? Also, referencing people in your questions isn't helpful -- people come and go.

comment Sync Contacts, Calendar Across Apple devices
You've made statement, but there's an inferred question here. Could you please spell out the question so there's no guessing as to what it is you're looking for an answer for? Thanks. For more information on how Ask Different and the StackExchange Q&A format works please see our FAQ.

comment How do I maximize my privacy in iOS 8?
Hi and welcome to Ask Different! Compound questions, especially open ended ones like "anything else I should know" ?" aren't especially well suited to the Stack Exchange format. There tend to be no canonical answers to open ended questions. I've removed the open-ended part of your question. The three questions I left but normally we'd ask you split those up in to three separate questions on the site. Thanks!

comment Suddenly lost all contacts and calendar entries
This answer doesn't provide enough details -- you'll find it's going to attract a lot of downvotes as a result. How did you back up manually? Do you really mean "backed up" or do you mean "restored from a previous backup"?

comment Can a SSH session be wrapped to appear as a distinct App?
Running command line tools and parking Webkit sessions in their own windows are not the same things. But I enjoy being proven wrong, so let's see what someone else comes up with.

comment Can a SSH session be wrapped to appear as a distinct App?
The only other way would be to write a custom application in Xcode that uses threads to put an ssh session in to the background. Such a thing is outside the scope of this site. You can also hide the Terminal window. I've added instructions for that.

There is support for installing your own packages from your own repos via taps on kegs. See "Other Ways to Specify Casks" here: github.com/caskroom/homebrew-cask/blob/master/USAGE.md

comment How to send text with telnet in Terminal?
The send command is for sending special character sequences to remote machines, not random text. See the man page: developer.apple.com/library/mac/documentation/Darwin/Reference/…

comment How to send text with telnet in Terminal?
This answer is completely wrong. Of course you can send text with the telnet application. It functions the same as telnet on any BSD system. The send command is for sending special character sequences to remote machines, not random text. See the man page: developer.apple.com/library/mac/documentation/Darwin/Reference/…
