That is a perfect chance to add your own question and answer it, because this will probably help someone else! And yes, that's perfectly ok to do.

comment Can I display GMT on my iPad's world clock?
I think this is discussing the World Clock widget in OS X dashboard, not the World Clock screen in the iOS clock app.

comment OS X /cores/ directory taking up 200GB after a couple of months
Something must have enabled core dumps, because it's not the default. Try running "file coredumpname" to see if it shows the name of the process.

comment How much use can you get from an Apple Watch if you don't have (or plan to get) an iPhone?
Now that the Apple Watch has been released, this question can be answered. And the answer is "You cannot use the Apple Watch without an iPhone, at all. You cannot activate the watch without an iPhone. If you activate the watch with an iPhone but then no longer have the iPhone, you can receive messages and use Siri

comment Can I test iPhone apps downloaded from iTunes in the iPhone Simulator?
This answer is 100% correct. The iOS simulator comes with system frameworks compiled to run on x86 and which thunk down into OS X frameworks. When you compile your app for the simulator, it is compiled into x86 object files.

comment Is it okay to use the cord from a Magsafe adapter with a different wattage?
MagSafe chargers are queried by the laptop and the laptop will only draw as much power as it's rated for. Here is a description of the query but I haven't found a description of the current draw process yet.

comment My NAS connected through AFP or SMB takes really long to load folders with many files?
This is a good question. I've found that some network protocols are really slow with big directories, and optimization tips would be handy.

comment Unknown when I receive incoming calls on Iphone 5S
There are no wireless carriers that I know of in the US which charge additional for caller id. AT&T does not charge extra for its wireless plans. It is very common to charge extra for caller id on landline phones, but the iPhone is not a landline.
