Looking at Apple's new iOS it seems they haven't even decided for themselves what things should look like. Too much more delay here is bad for third-party developers and, therefore, bad for us. See what Dave Hamilton found.
Last night Dave Hamilton attended the NeXTEVNT fundraiser for San Francisco's Cartoon Art Museum and found some interesting artifacts, amongst them Steve Job's NeXTCUBE from his desk at Pixar.

Dave Hamilton, TMO's resident Sonos addict, recently had the opportunity to put the new Sonos PLAYBAR through its paces. There's a lot of cool technology baked into this thing that Sonos has, again, made very easy to use. Read more to find out just what Dave thought about it.
As always happens throughout human history — though perhaps moreso today — our lives see us constantly exposed to new technological developments. Our perspective on them taints our gut reactions, and it's often easy to forget that all of it is simply part of the iterative design process we as humanity share. Nothing we have today, not cell phones, not cars, not even a can opener, was created in a vacuum. Everything builds on that which came before it, and this is an easy fact to forget — and an important one to remember.
A perfect game with which you can waste your entire Friday right from the comfort of your own desk (or couch, or chair, or bed, or ... wherever). Visit GeoGuessr, see a 3D view of someplace on earth, and get points for guessing it correctly. The closer you are, geographically, the more points you get. We're sorry, we know you had other things to do today. Just remember to come back here to TMO, because we've got some more cool stuff coming your way, too.
Apple just released the OS X 10.8.4 update via Software Update. Includes fixes to Wi-Fi-networks, FaceTime, Exchange Calendar, and adds Safari 6.0.5.
If you've ever looked in iTunes > Preferences > Devices you've probably seen what appear to be duplicate backups of your various iDevices labeled with a date. These are archives that iTunes automatically creates, typically when you updated to new software or otherwise made a change that caused your iPhone to start anew. There are times, however, when it might be handy to create one of these at a point in time of your choosing, and we can show you how.
As we've done in the past, The Mac Observer will be in San Francisco attending WWDC, and we'll be conducting interviews with developers starting Sunday, June 9 thru Wednesday, June 12. If you'll be in town then we'd love to hear from you and possibly set something up. Just provide your details below and we'll coordinate from there.
With all of us collecting more and more stuff (i.e. data!), having some sort of centralized, network-accessible storage is becoming common and even necessary in our homes. To that end, Dave Hamilton sets about answering the question of which NAS to get and, more importantly, how you can choose what's best for you.
