comment How to use the balance on your apple account in app store?
Which region are you in / which iTunes store are you using? Initially, gift cards weren't redeemable for apps in the Canadian iTunes store, most likely for sales tax reasons. This may still be the case in your region. You should check the fine print on your gift card and see if it excludes apps. If that's the case, there is no way to purchase apps with that balance.

comment terminal ask for ssh passphrase every time
Nevermind, I was trying to guess why it was being triggered, but it looks like it automatically tries to load an SSH key if it finds one in ~/.ssh/id_rsa. Did you generate an SSH key for something?

comment Which Macs support HDMI with ethernet?
I don't know for sure, but I suspect that this feature isn't exposed or supported at all. I've certainly never seen HDMI show up as a network interface. If the TV has an ethernet port, you'll probably have a much easier time just using that.

It depends on the script. It would have to be written to work with a SOCKS proxy.

comment Delayed, undesirable sleep on de-powering MBP retina with ML
It might be worth running a command like pmset -g log | grep -E '^.{24} Sleep ' in Terminal to hopefully see what the sleep cause was.

comment Syncing non-Amazon purchased eBooks between Kindle, iPad, and iPhone
As explained in the other answer, it's very easy to add ebooks to Amazon's cloud storage as personal documents. From that point on they're treated no different from purchased ebooks. That answer does need to be edited as Send to Kindle also supports mobi and AZW files.

comment How does one access Team Foundation Server from an iDevice?
I assume TFS refers to Team Foundation Server. It's an unusual acronym around here so it might be good to edit and clarify that.
