comment Can I keep the MacBook Pro Retina's power-cord plugged in at all time?
@idmean Are you sure you understood the 4th point? It's not about overcharging or exploding devices.

comment What is causing a kernel panic on my macbook everyday?
I experience the exact same thing. AND I have an Anker USB hub, BUT the one without Ethernet... So it looks as if it is something Anker specific?

comment Does iPhone battery life last longer using Wi-Fi vs Cellular Network?
As a second note: Cellular data systems are designed to work with a much lower field strength than IEEE802.11. This makes it consume less power on the same distance. But unless you sit on top a BTS, you won't notice.

Even worse: GSM cell can be as large as 20km in radius.

I don't think so. They don't appear on Bluetooth pref pane, only in the menu.

Yes. Also, various other devices don't see them. Besides, the OUIs are bogus.

comment Command + fullstop VS Ctrl + C
Wow, that's legacy... From my understanding the Command-key on Apple OSes was traditionally used to issue commands, while control-key was a modifier key to Enter control characters. Up to OSX, there was no commandline, which traditionally is controlled using control characters. Thus the easy to memorable CMD+. (Read "Command full stop") was used. With the xnu Backend of OSX, Apple added the traditional Ctrl-C (Read " Cancel") as a lot of software expected it. Besides: CMD+. to interrupt Command line tasks is Terminal.app specific.

comment USB-Stick (Format: FAT) retaining incomplete files
Are you sure you don't just have auto login enabled? If so, you have to have a password set. Have a look at Systemeinstellungen->Benutzer und Konten. Set one for this procedure.
