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.

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!

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.
