comment Disabling sound output devices (e.g. Internal Speakers) in OS X
I don't have a Mac handy (at work), but when you open Sound Preferences, I thought there was an option to remove items from there.

comment How do I prevent applications from taking over my screen?
Ok. I did not realize that the computer was not responsive. In that case I don't think even a second monitor would help. You may be able to see the code hitting the breakpoint or something like that, but you may not be able to do anything.

Can you post a screenahot of your full screen Window? CMD + Shift + 3 will take a screenshot and place it on the desktop.

comment I want to mount a virtual CD-RW drive
What do you intend to do with the virtual CD after that? For backup or for sending to a different device may be? In either case you should be able to copy the original file to another folder. You can get the file location by right clicking the item and choosing get info.

comment What is keyboard shortcut for “Open With” in Finder?
Ah... I did not know that. Other... does work. (It does amaze the programmer in me though that there is an implicit assumption that the menu items should have unique names. What if another submenu has an Other? But that is beyond this question...)

Also, as a side effect of adding the shortcut, the Open With context menu item (ctrl+click) becomes Always Open With whenever the keyboard shortcut is mapped: Before and After

I dont think this works. I just tried and looks like Finder confuses Open With and Always Open With (10.7.5): The keyboard shortcut pref and the error message

are you sure?: if the lock screen is on, then iPhone is connected to the cellular network, not wifi.

Apparently it works only if the view is not sorted. See my answer.

Shift + down should work. It does for me. Can you check and confirm?

It looks like this was the problem. After I changed the setting (Bridged to Shared), the problem never reoccurred. Thanks!

Trying... but I am not sure whether this would be the root cause. I have Parallels for quite sometime now.

comment What tiny thing in iOS 5 makes you smile, or has caught you off guard?
Perhaps you meant Safari users on Lion. On Safari on SL, I see only the boxes (as with Chrome)

comment How can I speed up the Open With menu?
The speed most likely depends on the type of the file you are trying to open, and the number of applications that you have installed. I have tons that can open images, so open with on images takes a long time. The same for a plain text file (.txt) is instant. What type of file are you trying, and do you have a lot of apps that can open that type?
