comment How do I move an app out of a folder on iOS 8? (e.g. newspaper out of “newsstand”)
@Bryce Perhaps this isn't the answer you're looking for, but alas even according to the NYTimes FAQ, it's true. You can't move the NYTimes app out of the Newsstand folder.

comment how can I delete a partition (coreStorage logical volume?) from the Terminal?
I had a corrupt Fusion Drive partition which Disk Utility refused to reformat. I followed the first two steps of this procedure (with the difference that because I rebooted with a recovery drive I couldn't use sudo and the distil command was diskutil unmountDisk). I couldn't do the mergePartitions command because the partitions are on different physical disks, but when I switched back to Disk Utility it automatically recognized the deleted LVG and offered to rebuild the Fusion Drive. Success! Thanks for getting me on the right track.

comment How to contact Apple Support?
@jww Silly question. I know it's quaint, but have you tried calling a support phone number or the developer support phone number?

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?
