Thanks! Interesting and they do have cities in there for fonts. Shhhh... Before some wise cracking lawyer gets an unoriginal idea to sue. 1smile.gif. Or perhaps they got a special agreement like they did for that Swiss train clock. That said, IMO it would be nice if Apple would promote these locations with say a dollar sent in the name of some fund representing these areas like the Yosemite conservatory fund for every Mac sold.

How do you pronoune Yosemite? I presume it's Yo! sa might.

At the keynote featuring the OS X 10.9 Mavericks unveiling, the Apple senior brass claimed that OS X releases would hereto forth be named after inspirational California places as Apple is a California company.

 

This narrows the name pool considerably, although there are enough locations within the state to support annual naming until long after I have departed from this planet.

 

Clearly, when Apple selected Mavericks as the first name of this new scheme, they did not go with what was most well-known on a worldwide basis.

Yosemite is pronounced

yo-SE-mi-tee 
yo - rhymes with SO, NO 
se - pronounced as SET without 'T' 
mi - pronounced as MISS without 'SS' 
tee - rhymes with SEE

 

It is an American Indian name for the location.

Thanks! Just to clarify for my dull brain: is that mayor(as in mea culpa)-tee or me-tee?

Sorry, 10.10 is just ridiculous. 10.10 is very similar to 10.1.0, which is common nomenclature (not that it will lead to much confusion). 10.10.10 is going to look ludicrous. They really need to figure out what comes after OS X marketing.

Just go to YouTube, search for "Yosemite Sam." 

 

He's a character from the Bugs Bunny cartoons, which most American kids would know. Well, at least the ones before the Millenials.

 

Play a few of those videos, he usually says his name.

Joe Consumer probably doesn't even know what version number is on his computer/smartphone/tablet.

 

The operating system versioning is only important for dork wads like the ones in tech rumor forums. Meaning Apple doesn't care.

 

And 99% of the people who will run OS X 10.10 won't be people who ran 10.1.0. Note that we have already seen 10.x.10 releases. Your concern is completely irrelevant to Apple engineering or Apple marketing.

I definitely remember "Yosemite" from the PowerMac days, not sure if it was a chipset or CPU or what...

Why would AI jump to OS X Yosimite when they published previous names that were trademarked that included El Cap and El Capitain? I'm guessing we are getting OS X El Capitan and not Yosimite.

Maybe it was just Mac Rumors.

See the update had El Cap and the main story had Yosimite.

Why the hell would it even reach 10.10.10? When was the last time OSX got 10 major updates before the next version? 10.9.3 was JUST released and 10.10 is going to be revealed next week. At most it will reach 10.9.5 before they stop updating. Did you forget we're on yearly releases now? 

 

It may or may not be called 10.10, but I very much doubt Apple is concerned it may be confused with an OS released 13 years ago. Jus like Tallest Ski's epic obsession that it wouldn't be called the iPhone 5 because it literally wasn't the 5th iPhone, the concern was utterly irrelevant to consumers and thus Apple, and so is this.

10.10 better be amazing and blow everyones mind if it is called Yosemite, because if it is buggy or lame it will be called "Yosemite Sam" by the pundits, press, and Apple haters.

Sweet! El Capitan was my first choice after seeing the banner. I don't want it to be something already fairly well known outside of CA.

Mt Shasta — thanks, that nicely explains one of the names in Thomas Pynchon's Inherent Vice (which I am in the middle of at the moment). I'm sure there are many other California-based insider jokes that I am not getting, having never been there.

 

I like Big Sur as a name. Maybe that.

Is there a OS X version that wasn't 1-2 names in it? All the California things, I find it weird that it was cats to California, and was hoping they would keep plant(or nature) theme, they could have done bears, trees, anything then naming things that only California has.

I surprised Tim Cook didn't name the OS X releases after great civil rights campaigners.

Mac OS X 10.10 should obviously be called "Eames"

 

Charles and Ray Eames produced the legendary "Powers of 10" short film that I'm sure readers of this column are intimately familiar with!

post #66 of 78
Perhaps the reason the date didn't match on "Yosemite" is that it was already used (and likely trademarks filed) as the name for the original blue and white G3's. (the tall "PowerMac" not the iMac)
Not saying they couldn't use it again, but if I were Phil (which i'm not), I wouldn't.

I hope they don't use it again, because I want them to use more obscure names so I can learn something new with each new name, but they did use iBook for a notebook and iBooks for an app so I think an old Power Mac codename from 15 years ago means that Yosemite is definitely still on the table.

So I’m the first to mention how embarrassing this leak is? This is obviously one of the posters that is supposed to be covered before the keynote.

No, it’s perfectly fine. No one will be confused, as you said.

The tech for OS XI doesn’t exist yet, so they can’t very well move to it.

I'm not American (so don't know if I'm right) but I've always pronounced it "Yo-seh-muh-tea"– 'seh' like Seth without 't' and 'muh' like in machine.

What are you talking about? These posters are leaked online before the event EVERY SINGLE YEAR. There's nothing "embarrassing" about it. And no, they're never covered. But yes, an "8" and an "X" are shockingly revealing. 

 

Unless your post was sarcasm. Which I hope it was.

Yeah, the ones they have up before the keynote.

2007. 2011. 2013.

We now know the theme of iOS 8 and the name of 10.10. We didn’t before.

 

A few years back, we learned the iCloud logo early because of an uncovered banner.

Well, I'm hoping that banner was hung upside down for iOS 8. If it's hung properly then it implies that it's raining from the ocean.

If the picture is of the banner hung upside right then it means it's raining from a very strange cloud.

The fact that it's an 8 doesn't help. Perhaps that the point.

Windows is by far the most popular platform (90%), so Windows users are the lemmings. Linux users are all zealots, who want everything to be "open" no matter what. Mac users are just buying good quality.
