high five bmike

My name is 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. Help me 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 Has anyone tricked the Apple Configurator to work with non VPP redemption codes?
I don't see this helping anyone, so I'm closing it as too-localized. Feel free to flag it if you feel it needs a better answer or should be re-opened.

comment How can I see the phone number dialed after I initiate a call?
I'm going to edit that to be "can be" since wrong duplicate, wrong trivial, wrong misleading need proper voting and proper commenting to be useful. It's about the context more than the goal of providing wrong answers.

comment How can I see the phone number dialed after I initiate a call?
@Buscar웃 Surely you joke. This is a very useful answer. Even totally wrong answers can be useful since learning is the goal and this does answer the question very well - especially since it documents changes in functionality. Who knows what's coming for iOS 7...

comment Apple ID working for iPhone but not for iPad
No - one Apple ID is able to be used on many devices (more than most have fingers and toes) if all you want to do is download paid apps. Music is restricted to 10 devices in some cases.

comment Reason why applications aren't stored in the Home-Folder?
Join us in Ask Different Chat for any general discussions as well as questions that basically ask "why" - we close them as off topic on the main site since they end up not being useful when viewed in the definition of what we want Stack Exchange / Ask Different to be.

comment Can we partially jaibreak our iOS devices for enterprise management?
Is partially jailbroken like the proverbial question of being partially pregnant? It's kind of a similar binary definition from how I see it. Do you mind if I edit that out to clarify what you're asking?

comment Reason why applications aren't stored in the Home-Folder?
If you just install all applications in a folder called Applications for each user - they can have their own copy of each and every third party application. I assume you are asking why Apple put Safari and other system apps that are delivered with OS X in /Applications rather than hiding it and hard linking each app to the home folder of each new user when you make them an account? (i.e. - what problem are you trying to solve here other than researching why a decision was made?)
