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?

comment Documents confirming the legality of the software
I'm not sure what other documents there could be apart from EULA and receipt of purchase? Your EULA is your license to use the software.

comment How do I use iMessages without a sim card?
Maybe the best summary of all the various links and stories is thenextweb.com/apple/2012/02/02/… - I've experienced this too. Disabling then re-enabling iMessage appears to be the right fix.
