comment Is there a way to access OS X location services from the command line?
I really haven't messed with it at this time. While being neat, I was really looking for a Find My iPhone type of code for portables.

comment Can a Windows PC do anything while it is sleeping?
Not really. The requirements are for a SSD drive, which helps reduce the amount of power used. But that's not special hardware, those laptops came with SSDs.

comment Making Mac media keys open app other than iTunes
Or to disable the special key functionality, go into System Preferences -> Keyboard and check "Use All F1, F2, etc, keys as standard function keys". And Voila, they now start showing up as F1, F2, F3, etc...

comment With a USB bluetooth adapter do the devices pair with the dongle or the computer?
Newer versions of Bluetooth allow multiple pairings, but only one can be used at a time. For example, my Bluetooth headset is paired both with my computer, and cell. The headset will pair with the last device. So if I want to use it on the computer, I disable BT on the cell.

comment Is it possible to detect the previous byte position on a hard drive after it has been overwritten?
Moab, I would tend to agree... (That no one has ever recovered data from 1 overwrite). But I think never is too far reaching of a statement. As a general rule, if the drive doesn't contain sensitive data, I go a for a single pass erase. If it contains sensitive data, I generally perform a 3 pass erase. The time difference is noticeable, but generally not prohibitive.

comment Game not recognizing Virtual CD
Second this! I Highly recommend doing this as well, since it allows you to have unlimited downloads of your legally registered Blizzard software. And you can recover your keys if necessary....

comment Why is there a difference between ping “localhost” and ping “local IP address”?
@Diogo, Not quite. Localhost allows you to test the network behavior of an application, or verify that the network stack is working.... But it doesn't test the driver. So for example, if you have a bad NIC Driver, localhost might be able to help prove it's the nic driver. Your mileage will definitely vary though!!
