comment Partition Format on Mac
Is there any benefit to doing this? I see much pain in your future. A mess of symlinks, app compatibility issues, etc.

comment Determine what's using the 'system' cpu in OS X Mavericks
Oops missed that. That list accounts for all processes on your machine. All cpu usage will he accounted for. In case youre doubtful, you can compare it to something else, such as the output of the top command.

comment Is there an app that lets me use an iPhone as a mouse?
The accelerometer and gyroscope only sense changes in position and orientation, respectively. Getting absolute position/orientation from changes in position/orientation is possible (it's called dead reckoning), but I'm doubtful that it'll yield the type of accuracy you'll need for an effective mouse. There are many trackpad-esque apps you should give a try.

comment Determine what's using the 'system' cpu in OS X Mavericks
But what you care if the process uses a high % as "User" or "System"? The distinction between them is completely arbitrary and quite meaningless. It's ultimately just CPU utilization, either it's there or it's not. Just sort by CPU usage and you'll get the top CPU usage culprits.

comment GUID partition scheme
You can't change a scheme from "Apple to GUID" ... "Apple" is a software company, not a partition scheme. Their devices predominantly use GUID to begin with, so what is it you're going to exactly

comment Determine what's using the 'system' cpu in OS X Mavericks
The User/System CPU usage is fairly arbitrary, does it really matter what the formality of the processor usage is? CPU time is CPU time, and that's easy to check.
