Installed Mac OS X Yosemite

Sunday, October 19th, 2014

Following the release of Apple’s new Mac OS X operating system, Yosemite, last Thursday, I took a leap and installed it on both my MacBook Air and iMac. Especially the iMac install was a *big* leap, as I currently don’t have enough storage space to fully backup the nearly 3TB I have on the machine. 🙂 The MacBook Air install was therefore a trial and since the installation went more than super smooth, it was nothing more than a calculated risk. 🙂

I have to say, Yosemite is doing good so far; my MacBook Air feels snappier and battery life improved?! I also like to look and feel and…it will be even better when iOS 8.1 is released for my iDevices tomorrow; some nifty features bundled as ‘Continuity’ will bring OS X and iOS closer together than ever! The ability to continue things I started on my iPhone on my iMac called Handoff (such as writing emails, working on documents, etc.), answering calls and sending text messages from my iMac/MacBook Air though my cellular connection on the iPhone, are as said; nifty features. 🙂

Also, my storage ‘challenge’ will be solved soon, either via a NAS (am looking into a Synology or QNAP), or through a new Mac mini (updated last Thursday too 🙂 ) combined with a Drobo 5D DAS…I need Terabytessssss hahaha (just 1,5 year ago I thought the iMac’s 3TB would be sufficient enough for a longggg time).
