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!

comment 2 instances of Xcode installed?
Don't delete the /Developer folder - run the script and let it uninstall itself first. Most times on a Mac I agree you can just trash the folder but not this time.

comment Are Apple keyboards multi-key rollover?
I don't believe any USB keyboard can achieve true n-key rollover. If you take a PS/2 keyboard that is, and give it a USB converter to make it work on your Mac, then it isn't! It's a USB limitation.

@Tom, you're right, ']' is shared with what looks like the degrees symbol, not zero. Updated.

comment Does an iPad consume more battery power when there are multiple applications open?
Your reasoning is sound. I just feel the solution to all of the cases where an app might use excessive background resources is to get a better app! I've never experienced the hot phone except when using Personal Hotspot. Cases 1, 3 - user behavior needs modifying, may as well do that rather than kill all apps. Cases 2, 4, 5 - bad apps.

comment Removing, or minimizing, scratches on the top of a Magic Mouse
great answer R.M. - "flame polish" will work if the plastic is the right kind and if you're a pro with the torch but the best way is patience, progressive grits and elbow grease. Micro-mesh is one brand name for plastic restoration kits with all but the clear coat spray included.
