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.

If that's consistent Scot, it might be very convenient!

comment Can anyone recommend a programmers' editor?
BBEdit is great, I'm not an advanced user but it solves problems for me that TextMate and Xcode can't. Try opening multi-megabyte files of raw data in TextMate... (which I bought first)

comment Should I buy Ram memory DDR3 1066MHz for Mac mini (Mid 2011)?
Really, any will work fine? Apple says support.apple.com/kb/HT4805 - that's 1333MHz they specify and not 1066MHz. Any retailer yes, as I also said, IF you're prepared to do the research and be absolutely sure.

comment Tips on avoiding “Could not activate cellular data network” with New iPad
I would have thought I had any required setting but could try it again I suppose. I did sync to restore my old iPad's backup data to the new one.

Hold top and home buttons until white apple appears. Don't know who is down voting you, not me!
