OS X Yosemite Beta 2 is now available to download from the Mac App Store for members of the OS X Beta Program. The public release comes a few days after OS X Yosemite Developer Preview 6 was issued to registered members of Apple's development community.
The first public beta of Yosemite arrived in late July, marking the first time members of the general public could officially test Apples next-generation Mac operating system. OS X Yosemite is scheduled to arrive this fall, and brings new connectivity options between Macs and mobile devices running the upcoming iOS 8 platform.
Apple is working its way toward releasing OS X Mountain Lion 10.9.5, very likely the last non-security update for the 10-month old operating system.
Apple issued a new build of the beta of 10.9.5 yesterday, according to 9to5Mac.com. The build, the fourth in a series for 10.9.5, was identified as “13F18.”

Now we’ve been given a look at MIUI 6, the software for Xiaomi’s new Mi 4 smartphone. It’s the most blatant ripoff of Apple to date. Xiamoi doesn’t even attempt to hide the fact that it has based many of its stock apps entirely off Apple’s in iOS. Wherever MIUI 6 doesn’t look like a prettified Android skin, it looks like a direct copy of the iPhone.
Apple has just updated its Safari browser.
There's still no sign of the regularity and frequency in update process that works so well for companies like Microsoft and Adobe, where you know you'll get an update (or at least be told you aren't getting one) every month.
Apple Stores are often seen as a model of modern retail - spotless, stylish temples for the products that they sell. But like any company, the customer service is only as good as the representative delivering it, and there are always occasional weak links.
A man alleges that he visited an Apple Store in Portland, Oregon, and left with a homophobic slur printed on his receipt, entered by the store employee that served him. The employee apparently entered the customer Adam Catanzarite's email address on the account as "firstname.lastname@example.org".
