comment iOS Simulator Hidden in Xcode 4.3.1?
I don't mind it, I already have over 200 apps, and having all my dev tools condensed into Xcode rly helps

comment Is there an iPhone App for reading PDF files?
I highly recommend this because safari supports downloading of PDFs right into iBooks. Also i find that the rendering is great, and iBooks' built in brightness display is awesome!

comment Should I create a Bootcamp partition (even if i plan on using parallels)?
You must have misunderstood me. Parallels can run off of a BOOTCAMP partition, virtualizing Windows as if it was in a parallel's virtual image, but also allowing you to boot into Windows directly if you want extra performance.

comment Should I create a Bootcamp partition (even if i plan on using parallels)?
Yes, the graphics card emulated by Parallel's is kinda sketchy. You can never commit 100% of your system resources to a virtualized OS, so running boot camp lets you (for example) play games with 100% of ur mac's ram and video memory, and without OS X taking up any of it.

I think this question relates to Parallels' ability to virtualize a boot camp partition, allowing you to access same copy of windows by both fully running under boot camp, AND being able to run it in a VM

Tip: when taking screen shots, you can press [space] after starting the shot and click on the window or UI element of interest to focus on it.

comment Suppressing iPhone's native video player when playing HTML5 video
"the on-site HTML5 video player" on the iPad is actually the same player as the one on the iPhone, the iPhone one is just modified to take advantage of the smaller screen.

comment How do you type Theta on a Mac?
You can set up a shortcut (like option+tab) to switch between languages, whilst avoiding an otherwise unnecessary menu item

comment Are Boot Camp drivers for thunderbolt to gigabit ethernet available?
I know this is an inconvenient suggestion, but I think the rMBP is more than capable of perfectly running windows in a VM, which would allow you to pass ethernet over (and have OS X take care of the drivers)

According to keyboard viewer on my mac, there is no direct shortcut for it

comment What are some great OS X games?
It's seems childish, but it's actually so fun! I wonder how they got it to be only 12MB and use literally like NO system resources. Unusually fun and very stable/efficient game!

comment Use a network Time Machine drive locally
It sounds odd, but time machine backups usually slow down as a result of insufficient free RAM, from which SWAP comes into play, and the speed gets butchered by so many disk read/writes. I suggest you monitor your RAM during a back up, and see if that's giving u a problem
