Have you seen the Queen's Farris Wheel (or whatever it's called)? On OS X El Capitan and iOS9 on an iP 5s, you can see the wires supporting the wheel ...Not only that, the wheel rotates in real-time!

LOL.Gengis Khan also pulled his music from streaming on Botoxify ...
... I thought, at WWDC, Apple said that they were going to open-source Swift ...
