But... I use a HDMI switcher (cheaper than upgrading my otherwise perfectly good receiver) that will automatically switch to an active HDMI input. I have a blu-ray, HD-DVD, Roku, AppleTV, and a cable box. Neither the Roku nor AppleTV turn off, so I have to manually switch inputs on my switch which I could avoid if either the AppleTV or Roku had a power-off option.
I was able to do that with early Mavericks betas. I haven't tried it with Yosemite but I would be surprised if the latest build of Parallels 9 didn't support Yosemite as a guest OS.
Yeah, that one qualifies according to this article.
On what hardware? I think Nasser was referring to a mention that Handoff requires Bluetooth 4.0/LE which is not available in certain Macs more than two years old (and the list of hardware is somewhat random and arbitrary since late-2011 MacBook Pro models do not have the capability yet my mid-2011 Mac Mini does).
If Handoff is the only feature I'll be missing out on with my early-2011 MBP (my mid-2011 Mac Mini appears to support it), that alone wouldn't have me upgrading. Once I dropped a data doubler in and gave my MBP a SSD boot disk (which has progressed from 120gb to 256gb and now to 750gb alongside its 768gb HDD), my machine runs so fast I can't fathom needing a new machine anytime soon (especially since I sprung for the upgraded HD display).
Doesn't bother me too much, but then I use BusyCal and Fantastical and haven't done a whole lot with the built-in Calendar app in quite some time.
It's been great for me since DP3. DP1 and 2 were a bit of a mess, although the stability has been really good for a major release (unlike 10.8 which gave me constant kernel panics during the first couple of betas). The only real compatibility issue I've run in to is with iWork '09 (which is a real shame, since Pages is still missing some of the page layout features I rely on). Even Parallels (which is notorious for requiring driver updates during major point-zero releases)...
I doubt it - you can "sort-of" get the old functionality back by displaying playlists and the column browser. That way you can still drag and drop tracks into and between playlists. But I don't see a way to display your devices in a sidebar the way you used to be able to.
Somewhat similar, yes. Only now you no longer have an option to display the sidebar. Meh.
 ...that and the fact that Blu-Ray discs are almost always cheaper for some completely perplexing reason.
