    I'm trying to sign up for the Individual Mac developer program and it asks for a company name. I leave it blank thinking that I won't need it since I'm not creating a Company Developer Account, but when I press Next, it says I need to enter a company name. What do I do?

    If your where I think you are you are in XCode, just hit cancel and it will pop up XCode.

    I'm not signing up through Xcode, I'm signing up online.

    That's "personal information" for your Apple ID.

    You don't need to worry about what you put there, because the company name that will show up on the iTunes store is your full name.

    I just checked my account profile, and my Organization is "none". Which means I must have literally entered the word none.

    I think I'm going to change it to Chaotic Neutral.

    Depending in which legal jurisdiction you are located, any name you put in there and do business under might have to be registered with the county or state, or it could be some type of fraud (but IANAL, check with you own local laws).
