Answers need to stand alone; links are okay but you also need to summarize the content.

comment 1993 Apple Color Classic
Hate to break it to you, but the first color Mac was far from Apple's first color pc. The Apple // had color, and the //GS had not only color but GSOS provided a color version of the Finder years before Mac supported it. #AppleTwoForever

comment Disk cloning fails due to wrong format
Answers on Ask Different need to be more than just a link. It's okay to include a link, but please summarize or excerpt it in the answer. The idea is to make the answer stand alone.

Your answer needs to stad on its own; links are helpful, but we want the answers here to work even if the linked document goes away.

comment How can I add Trash icon to the sidebar in Mac OS X Lion?
@dunxd In the title bar of a Finder window, next to the name of the folder, there is a small image of the folder's icon (this is not limited to the Finder; in many programs, you find a similar icon in the title bar of the window that refers to the file the window represents). This is the proxy icon. Dragging the proxy icon has the same effect of finding the icon for the folder (or file) in the Finder and dragging it somewhere.

comment How do I turn off push notifications without turning off notifications in iOS 6?
Answers on ask difference need to be more than just a link. The goal is for them to stand on their own, in case the link someday points to a site that no longer works.

comment Enforcing single document copy in iOS
Is this a question asked on behalf of end users or developers? The question itself is unclear, and if it's aimed at developers, it's off-topic here.
