high five bmike

I'm Mike Bradshaw. Please contact me if I can be of assistance as one of the Moderators of Ask Different on Stack Exchange.

Note, If you are emailing for help answering your question as opposed to help with moderation of the site, be sure to send a link to the question. I can't answer every troubleshooting question here (my paying customers have priority). If you have an exceptionally tough problem to solve, I do love challenges. Help us help you by asking a stellar question.

I'm often in the chat rooms here, but I'm also very much on the twitter as @bmike.

comment Macbook pro 2014 15 inch retina purchase considerations and questions
Welcome to Ask Different. Have a look at the help center - especially the part where hardware shopping questions are off-topic. If you can narrow this down to one question and make it about objective measures, we can see about releasing the hold. Just edit this down to one question. Also, this question on how to ask about software recommendations will help guide you in editing this to have objective criteria.

comment Why is my rMBP drawing twice as much power as my friend's when idle?
If you put your friend's rMBP in target disk mode and then boot your Mac with the option key held down, with a thunderbolt cable you can boot his OS on your hardware and determine quickly if it's software or hardware causing your idle to be higher in watts.

comment How secure are iCloud backups?
@NicolasBarbulesco You'll want to sync, backup and then restore with iTunes to ensure compatible versions get re-loaded. I've not had a problem with iCloud not finding a compatible app - but my intuition is that you could get a dropped app if the app wasn't tagged properly in the store by the developer (to allow legacy downloads, etc...)
