OS X 10.10 Yosemite: The Ars Technica Review
This book can be downloaded and read in Apple Books on your Mac or iOS device.
Yosemite is a milestone in the development of OS X, a product that John Siracusa has been reviewing for Ars Technica since 1999. Learn what’s new in Yosemite: iOS integration, Extensions, application changes, iCloud Drive, and, of course, the bold new look. This is not a how-to guide; it’s a review of the operating system that explores the technologies and philosophies behind the features, all within the historical context of the Mac platform.
Deserves 5 stars in advance
If we give enough stars maybe he'll write another?
Rumor has it this may be the last Mac OS X review penned by Siracusa. I hope he's compelled to continue reviewing future releases. I can't help but think of his reviews every time I accidentally confuse "back" and "up" in the Finder. :)
John is an exceptional communicator and an insightful teacher. His writing is sharp, concise, and deeply thoughttul. His OS X reviews are legendary, and this one is no exception. Anyone who wishes deeper understanding of the design philosophy of Yosemite will find this book an essential reference.
