Trust Us, Change Your Yosemite Font From Helvetica To San Francisco

Brittle, anaemic Helvetica is simply not a good choice as a default display font on Apple’s operating system.

Yosemite Maimed My Older MacBook. How's It Working For You?

My 15-inch MacBook Pro is the most expensive thing I own. I’ve used it every day, often for well over eight hours, since January 2011, except the two weeks I went to Ecuador last summer when I left it at home (and felt moderate to severe separation anxiety). I love this thing as much as a human can love a laptop. And it does not love OS X Yosemite.

Squarespace Made One Of The Most Compelling Short Films I've Ever Seen About Climbing

Video: I’ll be honest, free climbing scares the living hell out of me. The idea that you could plummet from a giant rockface to your spine-smashing death is something I struggle with. So watching climber and avid outdoorsman, Alex Honnold, scale a granite rock face in Yosemite National Park is a compelling experience. Inexplicably, it turns out that the whole thing is a subtle and beautiful ad for web platform company, Squarespace.


Why Your Old Mac Can't Use Handoff In OS X Yosemite

One of the coolest features of OS X Yosemite is Handoff, which allows you to transition your app session on an iOS device to a Mac and vice versa. Unfortunately, Handoff isn’t going to work with every Mac.


OS X Yosemite Is Out Today -- And It's Free

Apple just announced that OS X Yosemite will be out today, and it’s free. No huge surprise there — Mavericks was also free. But it’s still good news for anybody who likes pretty things.

In the midst of updating its operating system to Yosemite, Apple seems to also have some hardware refreshes in mind.
