comment How can I browse WWDC session videos directly on my iOS device or AppleTV?
Streaming I don't know about since I always do "view in iTunes" and then download, I usually watch session videos on public transport so would rather not do it over 3G.

comment Tips on avoiding “Could not activate cellular data network” with New iPad
Since the 5.1.1 update this has not occurred again although I have been trying to make it happen, to gather data for the radar issue I filed.

comment Synchronise/Merge MP3 collections without duplication or huge copies
iCloud is taking care of this, mostly. It's worth a bounty in case anyone has a really clever solution. Is there some Mac-based deduplication technology that could help? (and this could also apply to images)

comment Nook Comics on iPad?
My answer is no, not without breaking DRM. It's a shame but that's DRM - paidcontent.org/2012/04/24/breaking-drm-publishing-exec - if I buy it I need to know I can un-DRM it, because it is very unlikely I'll read exclusively on a Nook for the rest of my life.

comment Airport extreme base station won't turn on
Do you have a meter to test the AEBS power supply with? There's a chance it is the power supply shutting down and removing it from the wall could allow it to reset its overload protection (if it has any) and bring it back to life.

comment Is it true that any external hard drive made for the PC, can be used by a Mac running Lion?
Other problems with FAT32 - 32GB maximum partition size, inefficient storage (files occupy more space than they should) due to cluster allocation method, also they use ugly uppercase names in Finder. If you must have the widest compatibility it is best but has some disadvantages.
