comment Can I safely charge my iPhone 4 overnight on a regular basis?
Even if the answer was "no," would you really change your life style around it? Keeping up with some phone charging ritual will be more undesirable than a more quickly ruined battery.

comment Clearing TEMP files on Mac OSX
What is the reason you're looking to delete temp files? 99% of the time deleting them just because they "seem" unnecessary will slow your system down until they're rebuilt.

sudo find / -name xxxxxxxx-xxxxxxxx 2> /dev/null is preferable tbh

comment What are the six openings on the bottom of the MacBook Pro for?
As long as you're not going above like 80 degrees, it really doesn't matter. Operating temperatures of these components are really wide ranges

comment Where is “All My Files” folder?
Just because "When you move files to this folder they end up in Documents folder." does not mean "All My Files folder is Documents folder." They're obviously not the same...

Indeed it is. What a strange place for that to be.

comment OSX Mavericks using up RAM
I've found the exact opposite actually (on my 5 year old MacBook with 4gb ram). Sudo purge is perfectly safe, but it's only really a troubleshooting feature; it'll make your machine slower than with file caching.

"Is it a risk to run out dated software that's no longer really supported" ... well ...

comment MacBook Pro, Thunderbolt Display and overheating
Extra monitors don't really tax the system. Sure you need a bit more video memory for frame buffering, but just having an extra monitor plugged in won't really decrease performance or increase heat. One of the best ways to combating the heat flash player can cause is the Click to Flash plug in for Safari (it's actually my main reason for using Safari). It prevents flash applets from running automatically, and can replace the youtube flash video player with a built in (MUCH more efficient) quicktime player.

comment Vim like terminal
I used to use it as my command line editor of choice. Frankly, 99% of the "features" (key commands) that make it "powerful" just make it clunky. I spend more time counting words I'd like deleted, fixing missing/extra spaces I wrongly selected, than actually accomplishing a goal. Counting lines/words/chars to delete usually takes longer than reaching for the mouse.
