Q: see call history from a computer

xxxIs there a way to access the call history on an iphone from a computer? My phone has a problem with the display that stops me from using it, it still turns on, but the screen only displays vertical bars, I can tap the screen and it seems to doing something, it makes various sounds that you would...

I reopened this one yosemite question with Apple's nice FAQ explaining exactly how to leave the beta program. There is a meta question asking us to re-examine the beta restriction, but I'll see about answering that later. tldr - I don't see a good reason to relax the beta stance at the moment.

Q: Can I reinstall Mavericks after I got Yosemite?

OmegaI have installed the developer preview for Yosemite. Huge mistake. Everything in my workspace is broken. I don't have any sort of backup image. I was wondering if I could re-download Mavericks and run the installer - would that effectively downgrade me back to Mavericks?

@bmike it's an important question, and it's essential for users to understand that there is no true downgrade. If the full installer for OS X 10.9.4 can be applied to an installation of Yosemite, I should treat that as a bug in the released full installer.
@bmike re your apple.stackexchange.com/a/105803/8546 historically, many testers are surprised that there's no roll back/downgrade. Debatably, Apple does not make things obvious enough.
This will sound nit-picky, but here goes: careful with use of the phrase roll back. To some people, that phrase is synonymous with revert, and there's this from Apple: OS X Mountain Lion: Revert to a previous OS X version
Parallel to that: Apple's use of the word revert is debatably not ideal. It would be better to use the word restore, but I guess they wanted the keyword revert for search purposes.

Considering what's above … for prominent use of the word downgrade, I have cautiously nominated a reopening of the following question:

Q: Downgrade from OSX 10.10 Yosemite Beta to OSX 10.9 Mavericks

user2397282I downloaded the Beta version of Yosemite, but I'm finding that some of my key programs are running properly. I keep regular backups to a Time Capsule. How do I downgrade back to 10.9? EDIT: 21.5 inch iMac, Late 2013. Original OS: Mavericks

An acceptable answer might be reference to general roll-back-related apple.stackexchange.com/q/93850/8546 but I'm hesitant.
If that question is reopened, then some answers might attempt to go into detail about things that require attention when user data, application support data (and so on) from Yosemite is reused with a lesser version of the OS. Well-intended, but it would be inappropriate to encourage/allow such details. There's that risk, one leak leads to another
