 I would suggest do either Adblock -or- Ghostery -or- DoNotTrackMe, but not all three at once.  Running all three is redundant, and will only slows your browser down. Sometimes noticeably and substantially, depending on the situation. Also, you don't need ClickToFlash if you simply uninstall Flash altogether. :-)  In order for ClickToFlash to do it's trick, it still has to advertise itself has you having Flash installed (not a good thing, if we're trying to eliminate the...
There's a couple reasons, actually.   1. yes, there is a very slight speed increase. (although, admittedly, many people might not even notice it, especially depending on the application in question).  Also, there's a slight momentary performance hit as the kernel does a context-switch from 64-bit to 32-bit mode (and back) as a 32-bit application calls for attention (again, maybe you might not notice, especially on newer hardware. But it's there).  So, yes, it's overall...
 Something like DHCP would not be using middleware like BASH for direct communication with the DHCP server, or even for logging to the console.  BASH is a shell environment, not something that commands like DHCP would be using. Also, any input something like DHCP would accept would be completely sanitized, and malformed data would simply be rejected.  For illustrative example, DHCP would not accept input of any number larger than 255. Or any negative numbers, or even...
 This comment wins!   Yup, that's usually how most exploits work these days.  It's no longer, one simple hack and the hacker now has root access.  It's now usually a complex dance of exploits strung together in a specific order and way.  Read, for example, how hackers have to jailbreak the iPhone (which *still* requires physical access to the device). So, yes, this requires a vulnerable web server (which is certainly isn't that extraordinary) that also has mod_cgi enabled,...
I'm fairly confident that Apple is not the least bit interested in how well Yosemite performs in a Parallels 9 VM...  ;-)
 I bet you could. The difference is (as another poster pointed out) is mainly how much volume (room size) you need to fill.  A under-sized subwoofer will be over-driven on low notes (like that rumbling sound effect that can be frequently heard in action movies), that results in the voice coil literally knocking the limits of its travel range.  Instead of a nice smooth rumble, it sounds more like a farting noise. The movie Gravity is what convinced me to finally upgrade my...
Friends don't let friend buy Bose.   I too once was sucked into their sexy tiny Accustimass 10 series IV home theater system.  After getting tired of watching movies with subtitles on (because they have no mid-range frequency-- like where all the voice dialog is), that's when I started doing a bit of research and found out what a joke they are.   I sold the whole thing on Craigslist and bought a real system, and never looked back.   Do yourself a favor, and avoid...
 If you're asking that, then you should even entertain the idea of running Yosemite.  It's beta.
 I don't know anyone that has dropped it into a toilet either.  I never said toilet.  And I never said these folks tried to claim a warranty repair. I appreciate that that you and your friends are so perfect and exacting that you never dropped, lost, or broke an iPhone.  Or dropped it in water.  But in the real world, the rest of us clumsy people aren't so lucky. Here's just three quick example's of people I know who lost their iPhone's to water (none claimed warranty,...
 Really?!  If you don't know anyone how hasn't bricked their phone due to water damage, then you don't know very many iPhone owners. I know several people who've damaged their phones due to accidental carelessness or even [in a couple cases] circumstances beyond their control.  It happens.  Accidents happen.  Just this weekend I was caught in a rain storm and couldn't get to a shelter.  I wasn't worried about getting wet, but I will admit I was more than a bit paranoid...
