comment What environment variables are set in .profile for OS X?
Most of environment variables are not set by .profile. By default, that file does not even exist. Whatever problem you have, it is not because you have overwritten your .profile.

comment Apple Music Remix Replacements
Apple Music is absolutely naive and ignorant about electronic music scene, from their "album-oriented" UI design (even though most electronic music artists don't release any albums ever) to inability to figure out the real artist of a remix. I personally have given up already — I discover my music by other means, adding mp3s of mixes to the library as needed, to enable uploading to iPhone. The best you can do is to file a bug report and hope they will improve their audio fingerprinting algorithms, so that remixes could be told apart from each other better... if they can.

comment How to determine what an app does and if it contains malware?
You've basically asked how to replace whole anti-virus industry with several mouse clicks. You can't. And no, running an executable in Terminal does not tell you what the app does.

comment Make the green full screen window icon on Yosemite maximize windows
@Jeff You're confusing maximize and zoom. OS X has never had maximize, but some apps define zoom to be maximize.

comment New terminal to same directory
Terminal does know your directory. The shell reports to Apple Terminal whenever directory changes; the code that enables this is in /etc/bashrc.

comment Can't assign keyboard shortcut to service
Is the file writable (has w in -rw-------)? You can also try to run "Repair Disk Permissions" via Disk Utility for the whole startup disk.

comment Keyboard shortcut to change tabs in terminal not working anymore in yosemite
There are default Cmd+Shift+']' shortcuts for changing tabs, shared by all tab-based Mac apps (Safari, Xcode, etc.), since at least 10.8, why would you make your own ones for Terminal?

Never do this. There are much more than just Shared that can be there.
