comment How do I Convert FLAC files to ALAC for iTunes?
You may run into issues with Max crashing if you don't have Growl installed. Last time I had to install this, I had to get the source and compile it myself, but it may be fixed in the "dev" version (or even the "stable") by now. Just a heads up if you're getting any crashes.

comment Why do movies sometime lag on my 15" MacBook Pro (2011)?
I would assume that software is the issue first because it's easier to troubleshoot. If many different software combinations all yield the same results, try it on another similarly spec'd computer and if the results are consistent then it would more likely be hardware. (Or an issue at the system level that will need to be addressed by an OS update.)

comment Does Gmail push on iPhone 4S?
This is what I do. The only problem with doing this is that the iPhone has no concept of Gmail's Archive function when the account is added as Exchange. You will have a trashcan icon that will "delete", but Gmail's servers will treat that as an archive. Manually moving messages from the Inbox folder to the Trash folder on the iPhone interface also doesn't work. The only way to delete a message is to log into the web interface and delete it there. All other actions will simply archive it.

comment Does Gmail push on iPhone 4S?
Incorrect. Exchange accounts also get push, and have for a long long time, and Google enabled adding gmail accounts as Exchange for iPhones.

comment What iOS apps will take pictures and not send them to Photo Stream by default?
HUGE fan of Camera+ here. This is the answer. Plus it's only 99¢. In my experience, Camera+ is also faster to store into its own "Lightbox" than it is to save to the Photo Stream, allowing you to take many pictures in MUCH more rapid succession.
