Mac OS X

Close, minimize, and maximize are now close, minimize, and full screen, eliminating the extra full-screen control and consolidating the window controls in one place. Streamlining these and other elements of the interface means you can navigate the desktop more efficiently.

OS X' idea of "maximise" was "some random window resizing nobody really used anyway", so I'm glad Apple finally replaced it with something else. Too bad OS X' fullscreen view is way too disruptive for my tastes to be of any practical use.

A bit off topic but very interesting

I came across this quote about WWDC that I thought was very interesting indeed.


Gr8DesertWind, AAPL Sanity: I am amazed at what people miss. “Phone numbers ride on something called a Publicly Switched Network, PSN for short. iDevices just became part of the PSN network. And this actually makes Apple’s network facilities a virtual phone company. Every mac will be able to make and receive phone calls. And this will allow developers to build in smart calling features into every application… But further, Apple showed off a new communication protocol that allows secure communication between applications via OSX and iOS. This is how the ‘internet of things’ will have to communicate in order that we are not vulnerable to life disruption via hacking.”
