comment Can I search for folders of a certain size (say more than xxx mb)
@Mark Thanks for adding OmniDiskSweeper, I've also used that and it works well. But what you've said about DaisyDisk and GrandPerspective is not true. DaisyDisk has a drop location where you can collect unwanted files for deletion. GrandPerspective has a delete button on the toolbar as well.

@DavidDelMonte I've used both, i prefer the way DaisyDisk shows the used space.

comment Apple Pay with iPhone 6
I believe you will still have to enter the password once, every time the device is rebooted from a full shutdown (not just turned "off", only when the apple logo is shown starting up) or an iOS update is installed.

comment Why does the enter/return key rename a file/folder, instead of opening it?
@YemSalat Regarding your second point: Citation please. I doubt most people use the keyboard to navigate (not search) the Finder — that's quite different than navigating the filesystem using the command line.

@YemSalat The key is also labelled "return" on Macintosh keyboards. By your logic, do you also expect it to go back to the previous folder?

comment OS X keyboard shortcut precedence
Sounds like you might also be interested in a keyboard-based launcher like Alfred, Quicksilver or Launchbar. There's also Apptivate which is designed to do exactly what you're looking for.

comment How do I load the DiskManagement framework in single user mode?
@labyrinth I'm sorry, when I answered this I don't think you specified the OS version. I see now that you are running the ancient version Mac OS X 10.5. This command only works on OS X 10.6 or later. Any chance you could upgrade or is this a PowerPC system?
