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.

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)

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

comment Copying the current directory's path to the clipboard
Since you already have the AppleScript made (assuming that screen shot is yours), can you please upload it to a service like droplr.com and offer a direct download link please? It'll be more user friendly for the OP. Considering he's new to the Mac OS, i'm assuming he won't like fiddling around with applescripts/automator services

comment How to shorten startup time after Lion to Mountain Lion upgrade?
"You won’t even lose any data." That's not a FRESH install. A fresh install constitutes the backing up and formatting of the drive, installing the OS then restoring needed personal files.

comment Configure MacBook Air at Apple Premium Resellers in Singapore
Your selection will be limited to the "base" configurations, as offered on the Apple website. Further customizations require a made-to-order device to be made.
