Description

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.

  • The only Yosemite review that matters

    Other Yosemite reviews merely scratch the surface of what's going on, offering a fly by of new features that you've already made your mind upon along with a yay or new at the end. Siracusa digs in to what really matters, providing an depth look of what is going on without being boring. Honestly this is the only Yosemite review I've read that really brings something to the table.

    Siracusa does what he does best. Makes even complex topics readable, and sifts through the fine detail like an anally retentive archeologist. I really, really, really hope this is not his last one. He can’t give up until Apple ships a new file system at least.

    Excellent. And if you buy it, he's likely to write more of them. Also, no new filing system :-(
  • Makes "Moby Dick" look like a tweet.

    Siracusa does it again. Let’s get stuck in.

    A true tour-de-force in tech writing. His incisive observations cut to the bone, and the innuendo scattered throughout brings welcome relief. John Siracusa has done it again - a solid review with an explosive and satisfying denouement.

    Expected this book to be written entirely in Swift. Was left in a deep funk upon discovering it was actually written in robo-pedant-English. Also, no new file system.
