comment How to delete downloaded iOS 6 update?
It sounds like the update has been downloaded, but not actually installed, correct? And you're trying to reclaim the space taken up by the yet-to-be-installed update payload.

comment Mac App Store purchases are missing
+1 It is also possible that the developer has removed the app from the store. In that case, it should be removed from the Purchased list (this has happened to me).

Sounds like this information should be included on the Colemak for Mac wiki page.

comment Discounts for Christmas on Ipod Touch?
While Apple might not be doing any sales on devices again before Christmas, they are offering free shipping on orders placed before December 22nd, 2011. Depending on your circumstances, that may be a bigger savings than getting 5% off somewhere else.

comment iPhone: Is it possible to gift paid app to another user?
@EnricoSusatyo yeah, I thought it'd be amusing to pick an absurdly expensive app for the screenshots. :) You can gift songs/albums through iTunes, but not from an iOS device. Books don't appear to be giftable at all.

comment iPhone: Is it possible to gift paid app to another user?
@iPhone you can't gift apps from anywhere except the app store. What you could maybe do is figure out what the link is that the "Gift This App" button goes to, and then put that in your app, and use a call to -[UIApplication openURL:] to start the process. But the gifting itself can only be done through the app store.

@iPhone I'm not quite sure what you're asking, but apps can only be gifted through the app store.
