There are still many older Macs with people still running Snow Leopard on them, and it could use one final update, adding some more iCloud support, as certain iCloud features are not available in Snow Leopard. Snow Leopard is still very popular and used by many people, including me.

 

 

 

Don't hold your breath, not gonna happen. The percentage of Macs running 10.6 is dwindling by the day, so if they didn't suport iCloud initially for those machines, what on God's green earth makes you think they'd be inclined to do so in the future? Why would they decide to add even more older configurations to support, maintain, troubleshoot, etc? It's an irrational expectation, and there's no logical reason to assume they would be adding any features to 10.6 at this point, which is a 4 yr old OS.

You're almost definitely 100% right, and I'm not holding my breath for anything to happen, as that would almost certainly end up being fatal.

 

Even if it never gets a final upgrade, I'm still happy using 10.6.8 on a few older Macs. A final update would have been nice, but it's not essential.

 

There were a ton of rumors a while back reported on many sites (probably like 2 years ago) about a 10.6.9 upgrade, but like most rumors about Apple, I guess that this rumor was also totally false.

So what if he posted a Nazi symbol as a response to a dumb post? Any intelligent person can see that he was not promoting or endorsing Nazism by posting it, and I certainly don't see anybody who tried to offend any ancestors of yours, so your imagined outrage is simply the fabrication of a mind that's looking to be outraged.

 

Go get a sense of humor, because yours is certainly lacking.

 

And you're calling for somebody to be banned for posting an image? Isn't that a tiny bit Nazi like?

The dots behind the "7" banner remind me of the Mac Pro.  This is most likely not intended, as why would it be on the iOS banner, and not the OSX banner.  Just kinda interesting

 

This is unless, as others have noted, everything points to convergence. The bright translucent colored squares with rounded corners overlapping and showing/creating new colors.  The green/blue wave (it looks more like a forrest to me) being windsept and fluid rather than upright and still.  The "7" over a Mac background.  And, a swath of colors within the "7" rather than a single color.  There is a sense of overlap and convergence, but still separateness to all the elements in the banners.  If that is a forrest, rather than a wave, the forrest takes prominence over the individual trees.  A similar observation can be be made if it is indeed a wave, with the wave being more important than individual drops of water.  Same for the dots.  The perforated like grille patterns stands out more than just the individual dots.

 

In all of this there is a strong sense of movement.  Compare this with the Google I/O banners which were just solid blocks of color and a watercolor looking washed-out static thick "t / O".  Compare it also to last year's WWDC which was just a scattershot of overlapping colorful app icons forming an Apple logo. The other banners being the same just not in the shape of an Apple.  This year the imagery feels far more deliberate.  Every image has motion.  The sweep of the wave/forrest.  The overlapping squares (unlike last year's squares which were all in a static gridlike overlapping pattern).  Even the "7" against the white background with dos has motion.  The 7 appears to float above this grille/grid of dots, which appears to  slant forward and toward the viewer.  Additionally, they all appear to be in a fog or cloud; the tops of the wave/trees appears white and foggy, while the top of the "7" banner is more white and faded, and the colorful icons appear to float on a cloud of white.

So hopefully this does indicate convergence or integration, while still maintaining distinction where needed.

One other thing.  All of this - the motion, the bright colors, the use of strong bold imagery - all seem to run counter to the super flat black and white rumors we have been hearing of iOS.  IF, these banners are any indication of the design, simplicity minimalism and cleanness are definitely high priorities.  However, the black and white superflat look stated in the rumors and seen in some images with the gloss removed, seem to oppose the boldness and brightness of these banners.  Some of the gloss and 3D effect may be toned down, but this definitely does not look as dull as the muted deglossed rumor photos we have seen of iOS.  Im liking these banners far more than the rumored iOS leaks we've seen so far.    

of course this is all just conjecture, more for fun than anything.

moderator 269 up67 down
 
(n.)Someone who moderates a chatroom or message board. There are generally five types of moderators: 

1. Asswipe: Moderator that likes to punish members for little or no reason, harasses members and then punishes them for harassing back or questioning them, or is an asshole in general to those around him, not including his suckup friends, who will respond to his powerabuse with: "lol", "pwned bitch", or "wut a fag". 

2. Strict Moderator: Follows the rules by the book, no exceptions. Any rule infraction spotted will be punished, often without warning. Normally dreaded. 

3. Do-Nothing Moderator: Moderator that acts more like a member than a moderator, only intervening in serious matters that require mod attention. Usually ignores rule infractions for fear of angering the administrator or stricter moderators. Usually friendly. 

4. Badass: Best moderator there is. They are fair, and will usually joke around and let things go if the intention of the rule infraction was not fitting with the reason the rule was created. However, if someone is being a total idiot, especially flaming, they will proceed to argue with them for the sole purpose of getting them to make a fool of themselves, often to the point of losing their cool and posting a last "FUK U ALL!!!!!" message, at which point there is muchlulz and the nooblet gets b7. See Winrar 

5. Nutcase: Moderator that not only rarely enforces rules, but often breaks them themselves in the name of fun, or sometimes just out of boredom. Usually doesn't have modship for long, or is constantly scolded by other mods or the admin. Me. 

These are the main five categories, there are several other types and combinations of types out there. 
 
"Ugh, I told that moderator that he's being a jerk, and he banned me. What an asswipe." 

"That moderator is mad strict. She just suspended six members for spamming just because they had too much chatspeak." 

"Is that dude even a moderator? He hasn't done jack through all this flooding." 

"Haha, this moderator is so awesome." 

"What the hell...? That guy just flooded six pages of the chat away... he's a moderator? Wtf?"

Seriously, thats not a wave. It's a shore/cliff, something like Robinson Crusoe island - the whole new world. And the whole new world is X - OS X. So we'll see a whole new OS X. Seriously new OS X.

Panthers are not really big cats at all, they are misnamed other things.

The wave is for radio and Apple TV... Radio and TV waves
The graphic found behind the "7" and "10.9" is a speaker.
Even the "W's" and "M's" of the WWDC logo look like radio waves or sound waves.

I really like these banners.  Best in years.

 

Clean.  Well designed.  Thought provoking.

 

We'll see if the keynote is half as brain juicing.

You know, for a company that specializes in the video-graphics market, you'd think that they would offer top-of-the-line GPUs...

That is a better interpretation of the wave however Just maybe a picture of a star would be better interpretation (light waves = EM waves) However it could be very likely true.

He was in her before dinner.

The Romans invented a time-telling device, the sundial.
With those Roman numerals on the banner, and rumors of an iwatch, I think the whole new world refers to the reinvention of the watch. A new device that can tell time?

Bullshit.  

 

If Nazi (basically just the swastika apparently) imagery is so offensive, why was it perfectly fine to use it for over 40 years since the close of World War II and the defeat of the Nazis?  No one complained about it for 40 years, and then some nervous nellies got all het up about it and all of a sudden it's actually illegal in some countries to post a swastika.  Ridiculous.  

 

Banning the swastika works right into the hands of the idiots that think is has any kind of "power" as a symbol.  

It's the exact opposite of the right thing to do if you want people to stop using it.  

 

Here is one of the worlds most famous Jewish guys doing it the right way (making fun of the swastika).

Here's an interesting history:

The earliest swastika known has been found from Mezine, Ukraine. It is carved on late paleolithic figurine of mammoth ivory, being dated as early as about 10,000 BC.

What a brilliant analysis and wonderful conclusion that you have come to.

 

I suggest that you and any others who think like you should embark on a politically correct campaign to censor and ban all Nazi symbols from ever being displayed again.

 

You can start by petitioning Spielberg, I noticed a few Nazi symbols in Schindler's List. How disgusting is that? Who does that guy think that he is? lol.gif

 

Ever played certain Call of Duty or Medal of Honor games? Oh my, what a despicable outrage! lol.gif

 

Ever see certain movies by Mel Brooks? The horror! lol.gif

 

Do you watch any movies at all?lol.gif

 

It is quite ironic that politically correct people who lack culture and are also ignorant of history seek to emulate those that they claim to despise. You'd fit right in wearing a brown shirt in the previous century.

Britain WAS in a state, but we still had an Empire that spanned 25% of the world's population.

It's universally accepted that it would have failed horribly.

Ah, sorry; I meant the state Germany was in, having sufficiently defeated neither the Royal Navy nor Air Force. Also, I'm not sure the entirety of the Empire would have come a-'calling, but that's neither here nor there.

2. iOS and/or its built-in apps might have a different system font (the thin Helvetica variant.)

3. Apple's own iOS apps and icons might be more colorful and translucent, setting an example for 3rd party apps.

4. OS X might be named along a "Surfing Cat" theme from 10.9 on.


Other than the last one (which is possibly just the new desktop wallpaper) is pretty much what I was thinking.

 

Everything else is very airy and light. Plus, the "7" in the banner is also multicoloured in the same hues as the rounded square icons. I think that has pretty much given away what iOS 7 will look like from a style choice point of view.

 

At least, I hope it is. I quite like it!

Of course it would have failed, if the Battle of Britain had gone the other way, however...

 

And sorry on my part, I meant that had Germany defeated Britain, they would have the ability to assert control over 25% of the world's population.

Oh, nor do I believe that would have ever been their goal. They would have occupied Great Britain the island, but not British holdings elsewhere. The government would've gone into exile, probably to Canada (or India, depending on the need of the situation there), and the poster that has become unnecessarily popular as of late would've gone up across the island.

 

Capture of Great Britain would've been their bargaining chip to kick the British out of the war, and by that time they would have needed it; the Russians would be bearing down on them. I also remember reading that they planned to give Northern Ireland to the Republic in exchange for continued neutrality.

 

Let it not be said they weren't ambitious, but strong enough ambition is borne of some level of insanity.

As far as I'm aware, the Royal Family (and most likely the government in exile) were going to be shipped to Canada. Although, had he not been in the Caribbean, the Duke of Windsor may have become a Royal figurehead for Wales, Scotland the north of England (much like southern France). But I generally agree, it was the failure to conquer Britain that contributed significantly to Germany's inability to conquer Russia.

 

Perhaps it would not have been an immediate goal to 'conquer the world', but given the opportunity I doubt they would have let it pass. 

 

And oh no...not 'Keep Calm and Carry On'...:(
