comment 2 instances of Xcode installed?
Don't delete the /Developer folder - run the script and let it uninstall itself first. Most times on a Mac I agree you can just trash the folder but not this time.

comment Are Apple keyboards multi-key rollover?
I don't believe any USB keyboard can achieve true n-key rollover. If you take a PS/2 keyboard that is, and give it a USB converter to make it work on your Mac, then it isn't! It's a USB limitation.

@Tom, you're right, ']' is shared with what looks like the degrees symbol, not zero. Updated.

comment Does an iPad consume more battery power when there are multiple applications open?
Your reasoning is sound. I just feel the solution to all of the cases where an app might use excessive background resources is to get a better app! I've never experienced the hot phone except when using Personal Hotspot. Cases 1, 3 - user behavior needs modifying, may as well do that rather than kill all apps. Cases 2, 4, 5 - bad apps.

comment Removing, or minimizing, scratches on the top of a Magic Mouse
great answer R.M. - "flame polish" will work if the plastic is the right kind and if you're a pro with the torch but the best way is patience, progressive grits and elbow grease. Micro-mesh is one brand name for plastic restoration kits with all but the clear coat spray included.

comment Copying the current directory's path to the clipboard
It says in the question "I would like a command-line way of determining the working directory of the "current" Finder window." - are you not asking to get the path of the current Finder window in terminal, Hippo?
