comment How come my 7200 rpm external HD is slower than my 5400 rpm portable HD?
“Also, the RPM speed refers to the outer most rim of the disk. Not the core.” — This is not correct. RPM stands for revolutions per minute and measures angular speed independent of size. (Given two disks with the same speed in RPM and different platter size, the larger one has additional outer area which moves faster (in linear speed) to keep up with the middle.)

comment How do I tell which app stole my focus in OS X?
FYI, I asked basically this same question on Apple SE: Is there a way to detect what program is stealing focus on my Mac?

comment What are the default programs to open docx, PDF and ZIP files on OS X?
Note that Archive Utility has almost no UI — the only thing it does is unpack the contents of archives into a new folder. It cannot be used to modify an archive in-place (which I've often seen Windows users assume is normal functionality).
