Haha, I love it that the first post is about fixing Yosemite's much maligned DNS lookups. ;)

If you're a developer, you can grab it from the Platforms and Tools section (although I imagine you'd already know that if you were).

I'm guessing that this is, in part, because people can get more (seemingly) for their dollar and/or they want something that will have significantly more value in the long run. Then again, I've never...

We need more details than this. What version of OS X are you using? What do you mean by "hijacked" - did the browsers get permanently set to Yahoo?

Without question, this is because you're attempting to use a trick to circumvent geographic limits. My advice would be to simply use a radio/music service that works here. You can set up Rdio or...

Yes it is.

Blaming the user...is this because Apple is always right and when something doesn't work, it must be the user's fault (since Apple can do no wrong)?

I've run the code in the iOS simulator before and it was pretty respectable. As long as it works with their range of addons (which I'm guessing it won't), I'll be happy. Even if it doesn't, if I get...
