Every week, we pick the most notable apps, hardware, podcasts or what ever else we’ve encountered and think you should know of. This post will also be updated regularly throughout the week as we find more amazing stuff. So check back every now and then to learn about our latest findings.
Our picks this week:
Back in June, when Apple announced the new iCloud infrastructure, they also announced a feature called iCloud Drive which replaced the existing, opaque iCloud service with a new, much more transparent, container-based system. Basically every user gets his own container (something like a big folder) on Apple’s iCloud servers where he/she can store his/her files.
Now, with the release of OS X Yosemite, Apple has added the final missing piece of the puzzle: access to this container from your Mac. On Yosemite you get a special folder aptly named “iCloud Drive” that not only gives you access to the existing contents of your personal iCloud container, but also allows you to put your own content in it.
With iOS8, and later this year OS X Yosemite, Apple introduces a pretty nifty feature that may very well transform the way you’re taking phone calls while being in the office or working at home.
Imagine you’re sitting at your desk, your phone is somewhere in your pocket or all tied up and charging in the other room. A call comes in, what do you do?
Up until iOS8 and Yosemite, you literally had to hunt down your iPhone to take the phone call (and hope it hadn’t stopped ringing by the time you had fount your phone).
