Designed to feel fresh, yet inherently familiar, Apple has launched their newest operating system for Mac: OS X Yosemite. Focusing on details large and small, there are obvious changes to big things, like translucency in windows and streamlined toolbars, as well as more subtle changes, like the buttons, icons, and font you see. By adding translucency to certain interface elements in OS X Yosemite, Apple has managed to put a greater emphasis on content. They’ve also redesigned the buttons, checkboxes, and pop-up menus to make the Mac experience feel cleaner and more refined. Additionally, Apple has simplified the appearance of the Dock and its icons to provide a more consistent look and feel. Furthermore, fonts have been refined systemwide to be more legible and consistent across the Mac experience.
The fastest way to find things on your Mac also got better, Spotlight now pulls information from new sources like Wikipedia, news sites, Maps, iTunes, movie listings, and more. The search system has been redesigned to appear front and center when you open it, allowing results to appear in interactive previews that let you view a document, send an email, and even make a phone call.

Apple‘s newly unveiled iPad mini 3 boasts a stunning 7.9‑inch Retina display, an incredibly powerful A7 chip, advanced wireless technologies, and Touch ID. To ensure the Retina display in iPad mini 3 was sharp and vivid, Apple had to pack every one of the 3.1 million pixels from the 9.7-inch iPad into a 7.9-inch display. With a 2048-by-1536-resolution display, more pixels and more signals are placed closer together on the same plane, so signals can get crossed and image quality can suﬀer. To ensure everything on iPad mini 3 looks crystal clear, Apple engineers elevated the pixels onto a diﬀerent plane — separating them from the signals. In the end, the pixel density jumped to 326 pixels per inch — so dense the human eye can’t distinguish individual pixels — making everything look incredibly detailed, vibrant, and razor sharp. The new iPad mini 3 comes in silver, space gray, and for the ﬁrst time, gold. iPad mini 3 starts at $399 USD and will be available online beginning October 17.
