comment Why does my iPad automatically capitalise Bono but not the edge?
FWIW, it doesn't get Larry Mullen jr right either — it capitalizes Larry Mullen but not the Jr., and it doesn't auto-add the comma. Adam Clayton comes out just fine.

comment Parental control popups are constantly showing
There's a lot in here. Some of it is a rant about how bad the software is; some of it seems to be a search for solutions. While it can be satisfying to rant about software that frustrates you, this isn't the place to do that. If you can clean this question up and make it clear 1) what are you trying to accomplish and 2) what have you tried, and eliminate the portions about the worst software ever, this might help you get answers.

comment Useless Eject key on Apple Wireless Keyboard
Asking why Apple make the decisions they make is rarely a constructive question here. This could be edited so it is about solving a problem, but as it is written, it's really just a rant.

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 Editing system keyboard layout
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 Why does the enter/return key rename a file/folder, instead of opening it?
folklore.org/… is such an answer, but the question attracts terrible speculative answers and doesn't solve a real problem.

You're absolutely right that my answer is a workaround. It's also the only way I know to solve the problem.
