comment Mavericks frees >12GB of SSD
Finder has always counted local snapshots as free space, and Time Machine has actually never moved them to the external drive. This might have been a feature that was dropped before release, because it's a very common misconception. They stay on the local disk and get pruned when free space drops below 20%. See How do local TimeMachine backups work exactly?

comment Does FileVault encryption slow read/write access on an SSD?
Here's a data point: the 512GB PCIe SSD in my new rMBP initially benchmarked at about 725/700 MB/s read/write. After enabling FileVault and filling the disk to about 50%, it has slowed down to 715/695. Our CPUs have dedicated instructions to optimize AES, so the performance impact is basically nil.

comment What is the max resolution output by the HDMI port of the MacBook Pro Retina?
It's not an issue of "what does HDMI support?", it's an issue of "what does this particular MacBook's HDMI port support?"

comment How the low battery message graphic is loaded?
If the question needs to be reworded to be practical, might I suggest "How can I modify my iPhone to display a grumpycat picture when the battery is low"?

comment Disable loopback interface lo0 on 10.8.4?
That is odd. Does iperf correctly identify the two IPs, just to confirm that both sides are bound to different interfaces? ("local 10.0.0.2 ... connected with 10.0.0.1")? Do you get the same result going both ways (client on 1, server on 2 vs client on 2, server on 1)?

comment Disable loopback interface lo0 on 10.8.4?
I'd suspect that disabling lo0 might have unintended consequences, so it might be better to find another way to accomplish your goal... change the routing tables so 10.0.0.1 doesn't go through lo0, perhaps? I was going to suggest binding the server and client to different interfaces but that didn't make a difference in my test.
