comment How can I explain to my friend that running a “hackintosh” is a violation of the law?
I'm voting to close this question as off-topic because it seems to be about how to persuade someone of something, and not about any issues you actually face with Apple hardware or software. The question isn't about what you can do with Apple hardware or software, but rather how to best convince someone else about it.

comment How can I explain to my friend that running a “hackintosh” is a violation of the law?
Whether it is "illegal" depends on the laws of the jurisdiction in which your friend lives, but it's certainly against the terms of use in the license agreement. Whether that is a binding contract that will stand up in court is a separate question.

@erotsppa it should be corrected and updated now.

comment Stop Image Capture from opening when a new device is connected
That's great. What I'm saying, and yes it's hypothetical, is that any future system update might rely on it being there. I'm glad it hasn't caused you any problems so far.

A Modbook is modified Apple hardware, so it's on-topic here.

comment What options are available to _losslessly_ trim mp4/m4v video on 10.8 or above?
I'm most worried about the time involved in re-encoding (these are many multi-hour long videos that I'm taking a few minutes off of), but ffmpeg looks promising!

This answers part of the question, but not how to actually use the program to trim video.

comment Can't delete partitions after attempting BOOTCAMP on my iMac 5k
FYI, it isn't that the mods personally don't like extended commenting, it's that the system isn't set up for it.

comment Low budget: Wait for a MacBook Pro or get a MacBook Air?
I'm voting to close this question as off-topic because it is about shopping, which is off topic.

comment Stop Image Capture from opening when a new device is connected
While this would indeed stop Image Capture from opening (because it would delete the program), it's often a dangerous course of action to delete system files. This program is a part of the operating system, and deleting it could break other components of the system that expect it to be present.

Are you tied to using AppleScript?

Can you tell me more how this works for you? What do you plug into what?

comment How to use OSX to create a bootable USB key to install Windows 8.1 on a PC
This question appears to be off-topic because it is about running OS X on non-Apple hardware.

comment Yosemite white-screen crash (with avatar)
Asking "has anyone else experienced this" has literally as many correct answers as there readers of the question. If you are asking for a fix, that's a great question, but asking simply for others to confirm that they have or have not encountered the problem is far too broad a question.
