During the 2000s, Apple ran a hugely successful advertising campaign for its line of Macintosh desktop computers. The ads poked fun at some of the perceived bugbears of the Windows-based PCs of the era compared to the Mac.

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.

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.

In the midst of updating its operating system to Yosemite, Apple seems to also have some hardware refreshes in mind. According to Mark Gurman at 9to5Mac, sources say that Apple is planning a smaller Macbook (12-inch diagonally) with a high resolution display as well as a pixel-drunk 4K iMac or standalone monitor.

Last month Apple released a preview of their new operating system, OS X Yosemite. Following the visual refresh in iOS 7, Yosemite features a significant visual change. Apple has added the familiar blur and translucent materials, a cleaner looking user interface, a new system font and updated icons.

It's impossible to think about Yosemite Valley without Ansel Adams coming to mind. The photographer's countless breathtaking images of that location, and others in the western United States, shaped our perception of the region and landscape photography in general. But artists continue to bring their own experiences and techniques to the task of depicting the American West.

Apple revealed a sneak peek into Mac OS X Yosemite earlier this week. Not surprisingly, Apple updated its desktop OS to match iOS 7's design language. The new OS X now embodies a brighter and flatter styling, coupled with icon updates, font changes, and translucent materials. Here's a quick look at the visual design changes in Yosemite and my impressions of them.

Apple announced OS X Yosemite along with iOS 8 last Monday and designers are already coming up with beautiful app concepts and gorgeous icon designs for some existing Mac apps. In OS X Yosemite, along with the overall design changes, the apps are also overhauled to match the flat interface.
