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.

@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...

@ShiVik Good catch! This had been bugging me as well. Please consider posting command + down as a separate answer and accepting it. :)

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?

comment A REAL iTunes server on NAS
Guess I was thinking internal, where you're limited to 2x2.5" drives. But, yes, externals give you more flexibility.

comment A REAL iTunes server on NAS
I think a refurbished or used Mac Mini could easily be price-comparable to a decent NAS + drives, though it's obviously going to be more capacity-constrained...

comment Can I change “delete” to “archive” in the message control bezel in Mail.app?
Are you talking about the icons in the toolbar, as in koelnek's screenshot, or the icons that appear inside the message itself, per the OP's screenshot? The former can be modified as you describe, but I don't get any options when right-clicking the latter in Mavericks.

Done. Glad I could help!

comment iOS turn off word byte matching
How are you trying to place the cursor in the middle of "toFind"? If you tap the word, the cursor ends up at either the beginning or the end, but if you tap-and-hold until the loupe appears, you should be able to place the cursor in between characters as expected. Does that not happen?
