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.

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?

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

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.

@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.

comment Could the recently announced Mac Minis power a theoretical 5K Retina display?
It sounds to me like the bigger problem is that current Thunderbolt implementations don't have sufficient bandwidth...

comment How do I get Time Machine to Show in Notification Center?
Do you mean that Time Machine doesn't show up in the list of apps under System Preferences > Notifications, or that no notifications from Time Machine ever appear? (In my experience, Time Machine only notifies me when a backup hasn't happened for many days...)

comment How do I remotely control my iPhone from my MacBook with no wifi or AC power available (so no router)?
Once you've connected to the ad-hoc network from your iPhone, does the phone not show an IP address on the network's details page?
