“Your time is limited, so don't waste it living someone else's life. Don't be trapped by dogma - which is living with the results of other people's thinking. Don't let the noise of other's opinions drown out your own inner voice. And most important, have the courage to follow your heart and intuition. They somehow already know what you truly want to become. Everything else is secondary.”

comment How does HealthKit resolve recording of the same activity by multiple sources?
@bmike: Several apps now (8.0.2) work with HealthKit as sources. Check the app store.

@bmike: Cyclemeter is just an example: the question applies to any two or more sources.

comment What does the option to “Allow Full Access” for my iOS keyboard do?
I'm just wondering how it pertains to the question. What's "it" (the Keyboard?), that can't be accessed system wide if I don't allow?

comment How do I add a cover image to an iBook that lacks one?
Just to be clear: turning on "Sync Books" (if that indeed still works) is not a viable option.

comment What is “Sync Books” in iTunes for?
It turns out (at least for me) that leaving "Sync Books" on in iTunes (at least using it for books purchased in the from the Apple Books Store) is a mistake: it completely messes up iOS's ability to determine whether a book has been downloaded or not. Don't use "Sync Books" for iBooks!

comment Is there a way to prevent downloads of purchased items to iTunes?
Apparently this bug has been fixed in 11.4.

comment Can 'Find My Mac' work while the computer is sleeping?
So if I have my Mac joining networks automatically, will FMM work even if I don't have a Guest account?

comment Can I turn off my Guest account and still use Find My Mac?
Well, the defense (if you'd really like to take it up) of inadequate (and over marketed) "security" measures is off topic. If what you say in the answer is true, I find FMM pretty useless.

comment Can I turn off my Guest account and still use Find My Mac?
I guess I thought Apple had some magic. That's pretty stupid on two counts: (1) it means it offers no protection from any real thief and (2) I can completely disable protection (by turing off the guest account) without being warned.

comment Can I turn off my Guest account and still use Find My Mac?
If I were a thief (and what you're saying is true), I'd turn of WiFi, or go where there was none. Are you sure this is how it works: the whole thing relies on a thief being connected to the internet?

comment Can I turn off my Guest account and still use Find My Mac?
Is that how it works. Someone has to log in for me to be able to remotely wipe, so that disabling the Guest account makes it impossible of for me to wipe (or, presumably, get a current location)?

comment How do I disable “iTunes Home Sharing”?
Wow (and Duh!) it looks like that did it. What does "Share my library on my local network" do then? How is it related to "Home Sharing"?

comment How do I control Finder and App Store notifications in OS X?
Adjusting setting as I can for other things (what appears in Notification Center, how a notification is presented, etc.).

comment What does a 'reservation' for an iPhone 6 at the online Apple Store mean?
@bmike: Direct delivery. Apple sent a 12-character "reservation number" I can use (when it works) to check status. The mail they sent reads Your iPhone has been reserved and your reservation number is: B201EO5PMZU1 "We will email when we’re able to reach the carrier systems. The email will include instructions to complete your order as well as the return link. You will have 24 hours from the time the email is sent to return to the Apple Online store to proceed with your order. If you do not complete your purchase within 24 hours, your reservation will be canceled."

comment Why do I need to “bypass” 169.254/16?
@Buscar웃: Does it in any way expose me to devices with (perhaps maliciously) self-assigned IPs that happen to be on my network?

comment Why is my ac wifi signal weaker than my b/g/n; does it matter?
@AnonymousAppDev: See my comment/question below about what Apple means about "stronger" signals.
