So my mac book pro w/ retina that I just this past June has taken a big dive in battery time. When I first got it and for the first few months I would say I was getting a good 4-5 hours which I guess was normal. But the last 4-5 days I have noticed it's gone down to about 3 hours max and is draining really quickly. Any explanations?
It sounds like you weren't getting good battery life to begin with. Those are supposed to push 7 hours, so getting 2-3 less than that is a problem. You could try fully draining the battery until it shuts off then charging it to full capacity and see if that resets everything, but based on your initial battery life, I'm assuming you'll have to bring it into Apple and get the battery replaced.

Definitely appreciate that. I know it doesn't take long, but it's still annoying having to type out the .net or .edu, etc.
It's always been there, for as long as I remember, behind the old .com bottom. When they removed that button, I thought they removed the functionality altogether, but now it's just hidden behind the . button. Glad they didn't, because like you said it's annoying, even if it doesn't take that long.

Looks like an iPad event is coming on the 22nd. Hopefully there's a new MBP release too.

I thought about going with G3, tbh. Decided against it, but it can stay.


One of these days I'm going to get an iPad. Might be this gen, I'm not sure.

Quite likely.


I'm having one issue with the GM, but I'm thinking it's related to a Safari extension. On occasion, the swipe to go back in Safari breaks and it takes a restart/log out to fix.

This is an interesting concept design.

Looks better on there than it does on the iPhone.

I know they were trying move OSX closer to iOS. Wonder if they're still going that direction? We'll see that design soon if they are.

Hope not. I love OS X the way it is now. Making it more like iOS reminds me of what Windows did with W8. Apple might do it better, but I didn't like the approach in general. However, there may be some things I'm unaware of that will be good about doing it so I'll hold out on forming and opinion til the new OS comes out.

Reminds me of this: http://qz.com/46348/we-shouldnt-be-designing-for-mobile-says-google-ceo-larry-page/

Making OS X more like iOS is the O/S version of that, which I don't agree with either...

Everything is moving towards mobile and touch screens so it makes sense.

I have a feeling Apple learned their lesson with Final Cut Pro. When they released X originally, they had cut it down a lot to make it simpler and in doing so, made some of the power user things harder to do, as well as even removed some features that your average user didn't use. There was a massive outcry that led to Apple giving everyone free trials for it (I believe there might have been a huge price reduction as well), and a series of releases that gave back all the features and then some. There's a huge section of Mac users that are very much so power users that require the high end functionality.

That + seeing the response to Windows 8 leads me to believe that while we may see a redesign aesthetically and a more intuitive way to interact between iOS and OS X (or OS XI, maybe?), I don't think you're going to see function and ease of use change much. The design may end up looking like that posted, but it would continue to work much like OS X works now.


I actually like that design. I've been swapping out my app icons for more iOS looking ones since upgrading to Mavericks,. I might use Geektool to do some of that look. The blur would look absolutely perfect behind Newsbar.

I have a macbook air and somethings wrong with my charger. I go to "plug" it in but it's like the magnet powers aren't activating. Don't see anything on google about it. I can put stick it in there and it'll light up, but once I let go it just falls out. No magnet powers. Anybody know anything about this?
