comment Is there a PDF annotation application for OS X that doesn't suck?
The notion of a 75$ software being expensive is relative of course, but generally speaking, an application like PDFPen is very cheap for what it does. Not affiliated, etc.

comment Make existing PDF searchable ( OCR ) via command line / script
Nice project. In my tests, recognition was poor, but I'm sure that depends on my inability to fine-tune it. I was looking for a lazier solution, but this might be a fine choice especially if you want more control and can dedicate time to it.

comment Seeing the desktop while in Unity mode in VMWare Fusion?
note that shared folders under Fusion are maddeningly slow (try using Visual Studio with a non-trivial project stored in a shared folder).

comment How do I stop NSURLSessionD from starting every time I restart my Mac?
Because it downloads petabytes of unknown stuff without your consent at the most inappropriate times, especially when you're on a low-bandwidth, expensive connection and you're in a hurry. You don't know who's using it, you don't know what's downloading, you only know that your connection is clogged by the same computer you're desperately trying to use.

comment How to set the iphone mail app to send email only
Smart tip. Although I find iOS Mail alerts (when it can't connect to a mail server) simply maddening. I wish you could turn them off.

comment Do Macs run the full Windows OS making full use of Windows functionality?
I would add that virtualization software running on SSD drives is nowadays so efficient that in most cases, running a VM in parallel is a vastly superior experience than having to shutdown, reboot, and deal with partitions, bootloaders, and being forced to run a single machine at any given time. Unless of course you really need it native for some reason, but more often than not, you don't.

comment Is there a way to only enable automatic graphics switching when on battery power?
Sure, but the "Automatic Graphics Switching" checkbox is outside, meaning that it's a global setting.
