comment Editing and syncing a pdf file on Mac and iPad through iBooks
Yes, I know. The trouble is that after double-clicking on the icon of the pdf file inside iBooks, I am unable to edit the file and keep it inside iBooks. The copy pdf file that I save (in ~/Documents, i.e. without attempting to save deep inside ~/Library/Containers) remains external to iBooks. iBooks does not know the edits, and hence cannot sync them to iOS.

comment In Spotlight search results, how do I find which folder contains a specific file?
.. and if your objective is to edit the file in emacs, you can drag it there as well. No need to C-x C-f before dragging.

IIUC with Home Sharing you are merely streaming. Once you leave your "master" Mac at home and take with you the "slave" mac, you can no longer stream. You do not have access to your music while you're on the road (just as you would with your iOS device).

Done. I reworded the question. I hope it's become unambiguous.

Could you provide more details. With an iPod and an OS X machine, I can specify "make mp3 versions from the AIFF files and copy them to the iPod such that the total does not exceed 10GB." Were you able to store your (complete) iTunes library on an external drive, mount that drive on your Mac, and say "make mp3 versions... does not exceed xGB"? How?

comment iPhoto on Mac doesn't download the full iCloud photo library
Very interesting. So either Apple is saving on bandwidth by waiting to confirm the user is sure they want to download, or they wait until a particularly low (CPU/network) usage on their side to initiate the download.

comment iPhoto on Mac doesn't download the full iCloud photo library
So the secret is just to wait a week? After the initial download, I am expecting to see photos appear gradually. Even if they are downloaded at some arbitrarily low rate, they should still be moving along, no?
