Wouldn't that kinda suck? You'd only be able to right click in the top right corner of the screen.

comment Why doesn't MiniDisplay out work with Thunderbolt-only Target Display Mode iMacs?
Thundbolt doesn't have a "video in". As you can see the diagram in your question, there is a DP and a PCIe layer to thunderbolt. I suspect iMacs in target display mode emulate a PCIe graphics card with attached display.

Just curious, why don't you tether your iPad to your iPhone via WiFi? Bluetooth is atrociously slow and power consuming.

comment Mavericks Using Up All Available Memory
It's strange that you're noticing unresponsiveness at idle, but using a lot of RAM is kinda the point of the ram update in Mavericks. Free RAM is a complete and utter waste as far as computing goes: it's hardware you've paid for, you're powering, but is doing absolutely nothing in the present. Optimally, computer systems should use as close to full memory as possible, whilst ensuring that space can be made for vital operations. This is why Mavericks typically uses 99% of RAM: it detects free space and stores file caches to speed up the system. It's strange that it's not properly freeing though

comment Which is the best alternative for Dreamweaver in Mac?
It's too clumsy to have all these separate tools just to do one job. The higher level functionality saves SO much time. I love how powerful Vi's commands are, and it might be great for a quick edit here and there, but it's awful if your workflow is: edit in vi, upload via ftp client, preview with a browser. Coda's code clips and native PHP implementation alone are a deal maker.

Coda and Espresso are really where it's at. I think too many of these answers are from quick google searches and lack personal experience. You'll NEVER use Vi, Vim, MacVim, Eclipse or other editors for this stuff. If you take yourself seriously, you need an IDE with FTP support, syntax highlighting and automatic indentation, auto completion, in-line error messages, etc.
