comment How much RAM does the 6th generation iPod touch have?
Well, that didn't take long. :) With those specs, this iPod might actually make a decent smartphone alternative...

comment How much RAM does the 6th generation iPod touch have?
You're going to have to wait for someone like iFixit to get one of these and do a tear-down before this question can be answered.

comment Will Apple Music work with iPod Classic and iPod Nano?
Missing features like this tend to come down to the actual definition of "easily". :)

comment Is it possible to save a song “station” in Apple Music?
+1 I noticed this, too. Might be the closest we'll get, but let's see if anyone else finds anything.

comment Don't have Time Machine back up a file again if a Tag is added to it
Have you seen evidence that Time Machine actually makes a second copy of a file if only its metadata has changed? I would expect it to just save a delta of the metadata.

comment How to remove an entry from iOS Safari's URL bar?
Do you have other devices using the same iCloud account that might have that URL in their history? Safari appears to sync browser history between devices with the appropriate iCloud settings activated.

This question can now be answered, and I've voted to reopen.

comment Reuse other app's icon in my app?
I'm voting to close this question as off-topic because it is a question about the legalities of reusing someone else's intellectual property, it is not specific to the topic of this site even if the property in question in this case is a Mac/iOS app icon.

comment Reuse other app's icon in my app?
There's no way to answer that question, definitively. Whether what you're proposing will work out depends on, (1) does the original creator notice? (2) do they object? (3) if they request that Apple block your app from the App Store, does Apple take your side or theirs? (4) if they sue you for trademark infringement, does the court take your side or theirs?

comment How do I view a previous day's steps in the Health app?
Good recommendation (and I like the developer). This may have to be my solution. :)

comment Can I sell software with in-app purchases via the Mac App Store?
Err, wait. Ian, what are you asking? What is the distinction between the "Mac App Store" and the "OS X App Store"? I've never heard the latter term used, but would assume it meant the MAS. :P

Yes, OmniFocus for Mac offers in-app purchases.

This answer should cite an authoritative source for those specs.

comment How to react on Appstore rejection of screenshots?
It might be easiest to replace screenshot 1 with a similar shot taken within the app's UI (like 2 and 4). Replacing 3 and 5 are difficult since showing the wallpaper in place on the home screen is obviously the point - but perhaps engineering your home screen so that only your app's icon is featured would get the point across while being acceptable to App Review.

comment Why retina mac book pro won't output signal to second monitor via mini display, but detect it?
If you unplug the HDMI cable, does the mini-DP->DVI-connected monitor get signal, using either Thunderbolt port? This will help isolate where in the chain the problem is occurring.

comment What's the difference between Apple Watch and Apple Watch Sport?
Likewise, what are the features of the Apple Watch Edition that make it worth the extra $9500? Hint: it's not the value of the gold. ;)

comment access iCloud backup app data
You can back up to iTunes via wifi, but I believe you have to set up wifi syncing first; backups occur as part of the sync process.

comment How do I Get Info for multiple items in one window?
@user3019105 I'm not sure - that's probably worth its own question!

comment How come Dropbox gets an icon in Finder sidebar?
Speaking of Yosemite, I believe that Dropbox now uses a Finder Sync extension to integrate with the Finder... but I don't see anything obvious in that feature's docs about providing a custom sidebar icon (custom toolbar icons are supported)... So the hack may still be in place.
