comment How could i use an iMac as secondary monitor for windows 7 laptop
@jaume I went to add a short explanation of target mode video to explain the "cables needed" portion of the question and found it's not a short edit. Feel free to reorder things so AirDisplay is up top or reject my edit entirely if you're not comfortable collaborating on one answer covering both hardware and software.

comment How to delete unused icon from launchpad?
Is this either reproducible, or solved by the two answers? One addresses corruption in the database (unlikely but harder to fix and diagnose) and the other covers how deleting apps normally should work.

comment C# and .Net Programming Development of MBP
Is this something you can refine into a more objective question. As it is worded, it's more a guessing game about what "best solution" means to each person stepping up to answer.

comment How to enable faster WiFi Roaming with Mac OS X & Airport base stations
@magiconair Great comments - I've revisited the question and tried to make the answer more direct in the "no" - you can't do this with Apple's tools directly (as well as pointing to your scripting solution).

comment How does an iOS device keep time when it is out of power?
And I would amplify - the device shuts down the OS and hardware other than the clock at voltage levels far above the point where the last chip running is drawing a minuscule amount of power. Yes, if the lights are "turned out when the last chip surrenders to low voltage" - the device will re-sync via wireless as long as you allow setting of time. I've seen devices in AirPlane mode be without power for 6 months and still not have the clock fail to keep time - so in practice, the device doesn't even need to set time the vast majority of cases. +1 for the short and useful answer.
