comment MacBook Pro Battery Problems
I really don't think Apple has licensed the Magsafe design to third party vendors. I remember a vendor (cant recall the name) of portable Macbook battery chargers who had to buy actual magsafe adapters and cut off their magnetic ends for use with their chargers!

comment How can I make in-app purchases with a different Apple ID than the app was purchased with?
bmikes answer is correct. The Apple store does not allow it. Case in point: All my apps on my iPad were purchased using a particular Apple ID. Recently when I moved to a new country, I created a new ID and used that to login to iTunes on my iPad. (The apps downloaded using the previous ID were still there). One of those apps was a magazine app for which I attempted to renew the subscription (in app purchase) but it gave an error saying that the app was downloaded using a different ID. Finally I had to delete the app and re-download it using the new ID.

No problem. I am pretty sure you can achieve the same thing using an HDMI input too. Can you tell me your TVs model number?

Mitch, are you sure you are changing the video mode and not the input? You might me changing the input to PC which will result in the TV searching for a signal at your TVs VGA port. What's your TV model?

comment How can I get OSX to appear as a wifi router without sharing internet
If your iOS device is connected to a wireless network which does not have access to the Internet, and if you open an app which requires a connection to the internet, it will show that error message. This is not specific to OSX ad hoc networks. BTW, where exactly are you seeing this error message?

The message is shown by iOS. What has OSX got to do with it?

Is there a way for you to try with a different adapter? This could very well be a adapter issue.

The created network shows up under a special section "devices" on iOS. - Where is this? I dont think I have ever seen such a section on an iOS device.
