Are you sick and frickin’ tired of Apple + Beats + give me a freakin’ break? Tapscape, too. However, Apple won’t be cutting us any slack for the next “X” weeks. And, by “X”, we are referencing OS X 10.10.
And, iPhone and iPad fans, iOS 8 gets an honorable mention, as well.

Of course, though OS X 10.10 is expected to be the focus of WWDC 2014, iOS 8 will also get significant stage time. But not Apple’s mobile operating system, per se.
That said, Apple has promised that all future versions of OS X, starting with the current OS X 10.9 Mavericks, will be named after California landmarks. Obviously, here in 2014, more 150 years after Gentle Abe bestowed his name, Yosemite would be an obvious choice for OS X 10.10.
OS X 10.10: Change the World
Writing the code is what WWDC 2014 is ultimately about. Though self important bloggers, journos and users blithely believe Apple loves us, the Worldwide Developer Conference is about setting the table for the company’s most important collaborators — developers, developers, developers.
How will Jony Ive + Apple rewrite Mac OS X 10.10 Yosemite? Most observers are expecting a flatter operating system with a lot less skeuomorphism.
But what about you? What changes do you want to see in OS X 10.10 Yosemite?
