Mac OS X

Apple has released OS X 10.9 Mavericks - for free - so it's that time again: John Siracusa's excellent OS X review.

According to Apple, Mavericks has a dual focus. Its first and most important goal is to extend battery life and improve responsiveness. Secondarily, Mavericks aims to add functionality that will appeal to "power users" (Apple's words), a group that may be feeling neglected after enduring two releases of OS X playing iOS dress-up.

Is that enough for Mavericks to live up to its major-release version number and to kick off the next phase of OS X's life? Let's find out.

Upgraded an iMac, a Mac MIni with just 2 GB of RAM, a Macbook Air, and a Macbook Pro with mobile users and FileVault 2 enabled. No problems whatsoever.

Going to update our server this week. I don't know how the server itself updates. Is it a new app or an upgrade?
