    Heres what I know:
    com.apple.geod: Location services
    com.apple.MailServiceAgent: Mail Helper
    recentsd: Most likely tracks you recent files, apps, servers, etc.

    Most of those other ones are app-related services, and if they aren't, it would be wise to google them to make sure they aren't malicious.

    gamed is part of Game Center's framework
    com.apple.CharacterPicker.FileService sounds like it's the OS X Character Viewer
    pppd serviceid could be the PPP/PPPoE network service settings
