  1. some really nice additions coming on here, in particular the control center tweak is lovely. Looking forward to getting my hands on it later in the year.

    1. I like it too. It’ll be neat to see it released to the public soon.

      By the way, are you going to beta test Yosemite for Mac OS X as they are doing a public beta release tomorrow? Do you have a Mac?

      1. Sure will!

        I do have a Mac, but I don’t think i’ll get in on the Beta – even though I signed up months ago. My Mac has been having some problems of late since it had some water damage, so I think i’ll avoid it.

          1. no, i didn’t spill it. The girl sat next to me on a train ride a few weeks back did. It was actually tea, with milk and sugar. The sugar is corrosive to parts, so I feel i’m not out of the woods with it yet. Water wouldn’t worry me quite so much! Here’s hoping it works out though!
