comment Why my iBook G4 superdrive spits out the Mac OS X Leopard Install Disk?
@Thecafremo that doesn't mean the DVD will be rejected, the installer just won't run. He's talking about a common issue of an optical drive refusing to spin a disk up, and ejecting it instead. I've yet to find a solution.

comment Slight play in trackpad on 2014 MBP
There's a triwing screw on the underside of the trackpad that lets you adjust the trackpad's clickiness, but I'm not sure about how easily accessible it is on a rMBP

No... It has nothing to do with input. Thats just a mute for volume out.

comment How to turn WiFi on\off based on location
I haven't run any tests, but I can guarantee you that constantly polling GPS for location data to toggle the WiFi status will use considerably more energy than just polling for WiFi networks directly.

comment How to put a custom launcher in the Dock (Mavericks)
You don't require third party applications to change the icons. When you select an image file and copy it, the pasteboard contains the file, not the file contents. You can change the icon by opening a (say, png) file in preview, selecting all, copying, and pasting in the image well.

comment How to control UI/Apps from shell?
If your goal is just to control a Mac with an iPad (I din't know if it is or not), have you considered VPN, or are you looking strictly of a bash approach?
