comment Is it possible for a mobile phone manufacturer (other than apple) to make their phone sync with iTunes and iCal?
Cool. Thanks! So to rephrase, I guess the answer is "there is not some software or hardware or encryption block that apple uses to prevent it. Furthermore it seems that there is no licensing law that apple can use to legally prevent it (otherwise it seems the two quotes above would have been less mild and tolerant, they would instead have simply used injunctions) ... Seems apple's only real method against these third-party folks is instead simply the threat of adjusting the iTunes etc. software to introduce incompatibility."

comment Keyboard shortcut to prevent login items from loading but still allow extensions
Actually, of course, I went and tried to confirm it myself (it was silly of me to ask you to confirm it.) When I did as you said, and hit shift RIGHT after I typed my password+enter, and waited, it seems good. Didn't load the startup items. But I realize that I can't even remember how to confirm if "extensions" were not loaded. Now that I'm actually thinking of it, I haven't seen "extensions" for a long time, before OS X in fact! Do extensions still EXIST? Perhaps my whole question above is silly since my computer is OS X Lion and extensions are a thing of the past?

since you're talking about the same "shift" key -- can you confirm, your method allows the "extensions" but locks out the "login items"? (seems that way, but wanted to confirm. Thanks!!)

OK, learned more and found a solution, which I've posted as "answer." By using this solution, I realize that in my case I am causing a lot of the traffic on my devices to go only through 802.11 b/g, which is sad to think that I am forgoing the benefits of N. but at least I'm getting connected on all my devices...

comment known iOS mail bug? The inbox skips over displaying hundreds of messages (IF inbox has >500 messages or so)
aha... my first guess would be that that choice of 'all inboxes' takes the number of emails over the same "too much" amount that is causing the bug for me. To me this is a big bug... I mean, a lot of us have folders or inboxes with more than 500-600 emails, right? I keep all old email, and I don't painstakingly subcategorize them. Hope this gets fixed!!

HOWEVER, your experiment demonstrated something interesting. When I went over to ANOTHER of my satellite routers, it DID report that it saw the network (with an appropriate, strong signal) -- but this satellite that "worked" is in fact my OLD airport express, which is only a 802.11g, and not the nice newer 802.11n ones that are in the more important zones. Seems that somehow my iTouch is wanting to talk to "g" routers when using WDS?? Can I configure the newer Express satellites to have a mode friendlier to "g"-hungry clients? Thanks for this help! [you should post as 'answers,' not comments!]
