comment How do I connect to a wifi network from the login screen on OS X Mavericks?
This does not work for me. I initialized the Mac with a local admin account, then added an account set to use its icloud password. Upon logging out of the admin (or just using fast user switching) the wifi disconnects.

comment Can Mac Mini Support 4k Monitor
Loomy, I apologize for not being clearer. No, it won't happen. What I am talking about is theoretical, and may well require custom hardware modification. No one anywhere, including Intel, has done it. And Apple would say to just buy a new Mac.

comment Can you run a 4k monitor at 30hz with a late 2011 MBA?
Apple's documentation is clear about what their implementation allows, but it is not necessarily a hard physical limit. Given that TBolt 2 supports 4k @ 60, TBolt 1's throughput is theoretically sufficient to run 4k @ 30. Of course, the semantic distinction between "supported" and "possible" is moot for most end users.

comment Can Mac Mini Support 4k Monitor
Hmm. This presentation says otherwise. Perhaps there is a 2x difference between theoretical and actual performance?

comment Mountain Lion - Flash sluggish, spinning beachballs etc
@bmike, Disagree. My 2GB 10.6 Mac shows kernel-task using 135MB active RAM, whereas my 8GB 10.8 Mac showed kernel-task over 700MB. Just to be sure, I rebooted, and immediately after boot it's at 650MB. Plus all the daemons you mention.
