comment Recommendations for note-taking app for Iphone that does NOT sync to the cloud
Another reason to distrust cloud-based notes: Evernote is in deep trouble: "Evernote has laid off roughly 18% of its workforce in the past nine months, and said it will shut down three of its 10 global offices last week. [...] They want to go public, and, to do that, the focus on revenue now has to be a ruthless prioritization on things that make money".

@patrix: if a software developer shuts down, I still have a copy of their app on my device. As long as I'm careful not to delete it, I can use it; bits don't rot. If a cloud-based service shuts down... then what?

@IronCraftMan: half-flippant answer: because I don't want the NSA to have a copy of my data. More serious answer: I don't want to depend on any third-party service that can be modified or shut down depending on the whims of a company I have no control over. Look at what happened to Google Reader users, for example.

Thanks for the answer, but my notes won't be backed up anywhere in that case, right? Besides, I'd have no way to edit them in my desktop computer either. The built-in Notes app seems to be "iCloud or nothing".

comment Can't stream Airplay from Iphone Youtube app
I don't understand the question. I can watch any video in the Youtube app on my Iphone, no problem. I can also open Safari in the Mac Mini, go to Youtube and watch any video. It's only when I try to stream using Airplay from my Iphone to the Mac that there's the problem.

Nope. Just tried with a Youtube video that did not have DRM, and it gave me the same error.

comment Notes format from Mountain Lion (V1) to Mavericks (V2): how to migrate?
Well, I am using the word "migrate", but in truth I'm not using Migration Assistant or anything like that; as I said, my previous Mac died, so I'm copying everything from backups by hand.
