You Can Now Get The OS X Beta! But Is It A Good Idea?

You, yes thats right, you! You can now get the OS X beta for upcoming releases if you of course have an Apple Mac. Previously you had to be a developer to get your hands on the beta versions but Apple has now decided that anyone can avail of the programme. Simply go to the Apple website, access the developer portal, sign up for the programme and Apple will seed the latest beta to you. Go ahead and install it for free and you can have the latest version of OS X before public release!

However, is this a good idea? I mean the latest software could sound pretty good to some users, but is there a risk associated with doing this? Also, if there is a risk, then just how big of a risk is it?

Blackberry have one in the works too, at least that is according to a new test build of Blackberry 10. The feature is known as “Intelligent Assistant” (which is likely to change should this service hit the market).

Does OS X 10.10 Need A ‘Flatter’ Design?

Last year Apple released their new version of OS X, as they have done over the past few years on a yearly basis. The previous version of OS X brought features such as iBooks, Maps, interactive notifications and more, along with a bundle of under the hood improvements.

Not a penny to upgrade, and people loved it. On top of that Apple said afterwards that future versions of the operating system will be free also, so we will get a new version of OS X this year again for free. However, what does Apple need to do to up the game even further?

Uber Unveils New Service – Uber Rush

Uber is a venture-funded start up transportation company which was founded in San Francisco. It connects the user to a driver who is available for hire and allows the user to request a pick up and pay through the application. But these are no ordinary drivers either, Uber cars are all about comfort and style at an affordable price, far from a Taxi you would get from your local cab office.

The company is ever expanding and is now providing their service in 32 countries across the world, recently they launched in my home town of Dublin (excellent service by the way, I love Uber so far) and their application also allows users to track where their car is after they have requested a pick up.
