You probably think of Yosemite National Park as a haven for nature, a place to experience all that is good and pure, in a landscape untainted by commercialism. Nope, just like the rest of the world, it’s being ruined by greedy assholes.
Lyell Glacier was Yosemite’s National Park’s largest glacier. In 1883, park officials took a photograph of the ice giant. This year, NASA’s climate team recreated that photo with the glacier in its current state. The comparison is stunning.
Stretching 200 miles through the Sierra Nevada, most of the High Route is off-trail, posing challenges both physical and mental as you attempt to navigate dangerous, unmarked terrain. It took us two solid weeks. Worth it? Well, at least the photos came out good.
Brittle, anemic Helvetica is simply not a good choice as a default display font for Apple's operating system. That's why I'm pretty excited about this little trick to replace Helvetica Neue (the standard font that comes with Yosemite) with San Francisco, Apple's new typeface designed in-house for the Apple Watch.
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…
If you installed OS X Yosemite at the end of last week then you've no doubt been busy exploring its various tools and features. Here are 17 new things you can do with the software, from hiding the traces of your Web browsing to recording screen activity on an iPad.
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.
Handoff is Apple's new feature that integrates Yosemite and your iOS 8 device so you can start working on one device and then continue it on another. For example, you can start writing an email on your phone, then flip it over to your Mac when you realize you'd prefer a keyboard. Here's how to set it up and use it.
Yosemite's here today and as seems to always be the case with Apple's new operating systems, it comes with a handful of annoyances alongside its new features. Don't worry though, most of the common annoyances can get fixed up with a few clicks.
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. 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.
OS X Yosemite, the upcoming version of Apple's operating system, won't launch until the fall, but if you're interested in trying out its new features now, you can sign up for Apple's public beta today. The beta was previously limited to developers and dev accounts, but now it's open to the first million users who opt…
Apple just released the latest build of OS X Yosemite, including a brand new iTunes. It's only a little bit anti-climactic. Version 12.0 does indeed look a lot like Version 11.3, the version that's probably on your computer. But it's got some neat little treats nevertheless.
Did you know Yosemite Valley used to have an identical twin? It was dammed in the early 1900s to provide San Francisco with water it relies on to this day, but recently, conservationists have been calling for its restoration.http://gizmodo.com/how-san-franci…
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.
The National Parks Service just announced a sweeping ban on drones. The new policy prohibits "launching, landing, or operating unmanned aircraft on lands and waters administered by the National Park Service." Why? Because they're disruptive, that's why.
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.
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…
Apple's brand-spanking-new OS X Yosemite seems to point to a future where iMacs are equipped with Retina displays. As MacRumors discovered via a French developer forum, the preview version of OS X Yosemite includes display settings that correlate to a 27" Retina display. Desktop users, prepare for a crystal clear…
