comment How to install apps which require iOS 6 on a 1st gen. iPad?
I thought you only got the message to download the last compatible version if you had previously purchased the app when it was the current version for the older iOS.

comment I have iCloud but I don't know how to use Find My iPhone
@GeorgeGarside That may be true, however, I've always found the pinpoint accuracy to be off (I have multiply devices and they are always shown scattered throughout my property, even when they are located on the same desk). Better to use Find my Phone to play a sound on the device, especially when you don’t have another phone to call it with.

Please be aware that Find my Phone will not be able to pinpoint your phone's location within your house, just that it's in/near your house or at another location.

comment Is it possible to share reminders?
@Aaron, looks like they did not add the ability in the released iOS 6.

comment Is it possible to share reminders?
As noted by @crazyj, iCloud.com has since removed this ability. It is expected to return natively on the mac with OS X 10.8.2 and on iOS devices with iOS 6.

comment How to recover data from unreadable hard drive?
"Died" is somewhat vague, it could simply be a corruption issue that is preventing the drive from mounting or it might be a physical issue. Can you elaborate, such as: does Disk Utility list the drive when attached? Is it greyed out? Have you tried any recovery software yet?

comment Why get a regular MacBook Pro versus the Retina display model?
One drawback to installing your own SDD is that it will not take advantage of Power Nap.

comment Is there a way to hide the unread count badge in Mountain Lion's Mail.app?
There must be a way as I had the Dock count turned off before the upgrade and it is still off after the upgrade. However, I don't see any further options.

comment How do I examine my iPad for malware?
Please provide more information: Is this happening within the Safari app or third party app? Is this happening when you manually enter the site's URL or when you tap on a link? If it is when tapping on a link, are you sure that the URL of the link text actual goes to the site you believe it to?

comment What has changed Finder list view in Lion to make “Calculate all sizes” exponentially faster?
@CajunLuke you need to switch your window view to list before opening the "Show View Options" window.

comment I would like my application to overlap the dock (with the app behind of course)
Is there a reason why you don't just turn dock hiding on? That way your app's window will use the full screen height and the dock will overlap when it is needed.

comment What's the proper way to pronounce “Mac OS X”?
They have also revised Lion's webpages to now show "OS X Lion" e.i. removed Mac.

comment How do I repair permissions of a specific directory?
@gentmatt you are correct, an admin account does not mean that the root user is enabled.

comment How do I repair permissions of a specific directory?
I don't believe that you need to have the root user enabled to do this if you have an admin account and use 'sudo' instead of 'su', like this: sudo chmod -R 777 / #put the path to your directory after the slash. Enter your user's password when prompted.

comment Syncing with multi Mac household
No. iTunes Match will not sync your movies, books or ringtones, it handles music only. It is my understanding that if you purchase any of the above via iTunes or the App store, you can download then to your other devises directly by using the same Apple ID - this obviously will not work for any content that was not bought from Apple.

comment iPad Apps with nice transitions/animations
Just create a US account sans credit card. You can then download all the free apps in the US store that are not available where you are. Once created it's easy to switch between the two accounts as needed. Here's a guide: support.apple.com/kb/HT2534

comment Where does Lion's autosave feature save past versions?
I just tested this with a USB drive (formatted as Mac OS Extended Journaled) and the result was that Lion created the the .DocumentRevisions-V100 directory including the sqlite database files at the root of the USB drive.
