I too think it's the card going out; however, testing on a different network could be a good step before dissecting your MBP. Try starbucks or a neighbor to eliminate your router dropping you as a variable.

comment Cannot empty trash
I had a similar issue where emptying the trash took... hours.... the sudo command did the trick. (long term solution was a fresh install of OSX)

comment Is it possible to log out of 'mail' on the iPad?
I'm considering the same thing actually.. I'd actually like to write an applescript like i have for my desktop to disable my mail while I'm at work because everytime i get an email my MBP, iPhone and iPad all go off and it's annoying haha

comment is it worth it to install SSD internally, instead of using USB3?
I don't know about your mac mini, but my MBP thats a few years old I would have to also replace the cable from the SDD to the logicboard to get the most out of the SDD. It's unlikely the computer came with a cable installed intended to power a SDD given the price of that cable being a little higher.

comment Using an iPad for doing web development and programming
I use diet coda on the run and for emergencies. You can't work locally, so when you hit save you're making live changes.. be careful :) Also, you can pair diet coda with coda 2 on your mac to see changes every time you hit the save command on coda 2 (super handy not having to hit refresh every time)

comment “Unable to Download”/“Unable to Install” on iOS app update
I feel like we're leaning towards jailbreaking being the problem. I suggest backing it up (if that works with jail broken phones) and restoring the phone through iTunes to a legit status and see if the app will then update.. If so, do you need to jailbreak anyway? I recommend against, but others do have good reasons to do it

comment Cracked iPad display - What are my options?
DIY is not easy for iPad. proceed with extreme caution. It's not impossible. I have done it about a dozen times. Go ahead and order a wifi antenna while you're at it.. the chances of you breaking that while removing the broken glass is extremely high (especially your first time) in America I can get the glass for about $50 and the wifi antenna for about $5 and it takes about an hour to get it open and about 5 min to swap the parts and another ten to put it back together... little tip: fill a sock with rice, heat it up and place it on the ipad to loosen the glue
