Geezer and Carbon based biped, with a fondness for hard cheese, Amigas, synthesised noises and competing in sprint triathlons.

Unix geek at heart, Mac user since 10.4 so still a little green on some things (Dog cow? Teh snappy?), but familiar to some extent with almost every current computing platform know to man, and some that aren't.

comment How are notifications removed on iOS devices?
Possibly, thanks. I'll look later, but I was hoping for a laymans explanation; I thought notifications were a simple push operation, but apparently not any more

comment Is there a way to prevent voice dictation from turning off the system audio?
Probably by design, or lack of. Siri does the same thing on iOS. Doing otherwise probably requires some comprehensive digital signal processing that analyses what noises it believes it is outputting, and then trying to subtract those from incoming audio on the fly. That's exactly the sort of thing that is left for others to implement as an improved feature.

comment Can't skip iCloud setup on iOS 8
Sounds like you had iCloud setup before, and it now needs to confirm those details. You may not have used it for much, but likely the find my iPhone feature, which is now mandatory on iOS8. If you can't recall your password, you can reset it
