comment What OS X and iOS software combination tracks finances?
Why is it that whenever a person says something that can be interpreted as a slight preference for a windows feature over a Mac feature, they can pretty much count on getting down-checked. :( I scoured the market for 4 years looking for something to substitute for Quicken on the Mac. I finally found Virtual Box, allowing me to have my Mac and my Quicken too, and I announce that here, only to get down checked.

I guess if you don't have too many windows open, that would be fine. I just missed the old Windows-E so I now programmed F6 using Keyboard Maestro

This really good but the Keyboard Maestro answer allows you to specify many more options; for example, if you press the shortcut key again, it toggles back to the prior front application

I have no doubt there is not a viable product out there. It's kind of unbelievable that everyone is willing to vie for a share of the Windows market when the Mac market is easy pickings for anyone who wants to grab it

It doesn't look like mint lets you do a reconciliation. How do you know if your charges are for the correct amount?

Isn't it incredible that Quicken hasn't figured out yet that there is a vast Mac market waiting to buy their product.

comment What is the keyboard shortcut for editing a cell in Excel?
I wonder why Microsoft change it? I have been using Windows in work for years, and now I use Mac at home. It would be great if I didn't have to learn a whole new set of shortcuts. (Ctrl-I and Ctrl- for adding and removing rows, for example. Any others?

No, sorry, I tried both sets of instructions (I have IOS 6 but I also tried other), and I still get a prompt asking me for the password.

comment How to install Java 6 on Mac OSX 10.75
The answer there is not complete. Yes, you can build to an earlier target, but if your source contains Java 7 API's, it will still not run on Java 6. I am really asking for a new Java 6 installation download for OSX 7.5

comment Is there a way to configure the keyboard on an iPad
ok, I see about international keyboards, but you would think Apple would provide a little more feature rich keyboard! I guess I am just expecting more, having come off a <gasp/> Android device.

I just want to open any application, such as gmail, and type. The default keyboard is very bare - keys only show caps, can't see the shifted value on each key, my old smith corona typewriter was more robust! :)

I don't follow, do you mean physical keyboards. Else, where can I find some of these keyboards, I would perhaps like to install one.

That's unfortunate - so how do they handle foreign language keyboards such as kanji or hebrew.

comment What can cause 90 second delays joining a wifi network?
One interesting event occurred - I went out of town for a few days, and the Mac immediately connected to my room Wi-Fi. So me says, this proves the problem was with my home router. However on return home, my Mac is now connecting faster than ever to my home Wi-Fi. WTF?

Strange - even when the wifi is turned off, ifconfig shows me an ip address, then when I turn Wifi back on, and wait for the connection, the IP address is the same. In fact, when I close my machine for a few minutes and come back, it is still the same ip
