comment Can I downgrade to Mavericks after installing Yosemite?
Yes they do. Yosemite removes the Mavericks Recovery Partition and installs it's own. Using it to go back to Mavericks is possible but then you'll still have the Recovery HD from 10.10. It has to be deleted manually before running recovery.

comment Is the /Developer directory still needed for Xcode in OS X Mavericks?
The suggestion above is horrible, especially in this case as it aims to support legacy structure that is now obsolete. Altering files in .app directories breaks code signing (can test using code sign) and is reversed upon upgrading the package anyway.

comment Why won't my secondhand iPad let me activate an Apple ID?
Take it to an Apple Store and have a Genius reset it. Yes, they can. You will just need to provide proof of ownership.

comment Installing drivers before installing Mac app - rejected by apple review team
Without recoding the app the meet Apple's guidelines, you will have to rely on selling your app outside the MAS. Plain and simple I'm afraid. There is no way around Apple's guidelines. You are the developer. You know the code base and the requirements. There is no loophole. Either you are asking us to provide you with a way to circumvent Apple policy or tell you how to code your app.

comment Checking the health of my iPhone's battery
The best option is to visit an Apple Store and ask them to run a diagnostic on your phone. Failing that, call Apple Support and see if they can't do it remotely. I would do that before changing the battery as the phone isn't exactly easy to service and there is no guarantee you will purchase a legitimate replacement from a 3rd party vendor.

comment Can I upgrade to OSX 10.9 and format my HD along the way?
"You can't create a Partition when booted from the same drive hence the need to boot from a USB installer." You don't need a USB installer with Internet Recovery.
