OS X Yosemite hands-on: Mail, Messages, and Calendar

“A major update to OS X generally means that many of the apps included with the operating system also get major updates—or at least the biggest updates they’re likely to get until the next major operating-system release,” Jason Snell reports for Macworld.

“In OS X Yosemite, due this fall, several major Apple apps have received upgrades both big and small,” Snell reports. “I’ve been using a pre-release version of Yosemite (on an Apple-supplied MacBook Pro) for the past month and have had a chance to spend a little time with Mail, Messages, and Calendar.”

    1. NDA: Non-Disclosure Agreement.

      I don’t think Apple is going to exactly be pleased with Jason Snell. But this isn’t the first time such, ahem, unallowed reviews have occurred. There’s nothing particularly secret Jason is discussing here. It’s free hype-inducing marketing for Apple, for the most part. Apple appears to be appreciating this fact these days. And as Jason points out, Apple has provided both the hardware and software allowing him to view, if not review, the beta.

    2. This is what Snell says in the comments after his article:

      “Thanks for your feedback. I think it’s useful, and there are only loose judgments here — how many times can I say it’s an early beta and that things can change before the final? Also, since Apple provided me a system and NDA-free access to write about it, I imagine they don’t consider it an unfair situation either. “

  1. Text Zoom is desperately needed in Mail. Text is so small on a 27 inch iMac that clients can’t read it. No one wants to type text in 18 point.

    The current method confuses clients. Several have nearly returned their snazzy new iMacs after discovering this issue.

    Pages uses Text Zoom so it should not be hard to implement into email.
