Updated to iOS 8.02, OS X Yosemite

I updated my Apple OS’s to OS X Yosemite (10.10) and iOS 8.02. I’m downloading iOS 8.1 but it looks like Apple’s servers are busy/slow at the moment.

Initial impressions are positive (except for iTunes 12, which once again hid the sidebar. Here’s how to sort of fix it: http://www.mcelhearn.com/itunes-12-how-to-display-the-sidebar/) A new feature I like is AirDrop now works with OS X and iOS, formerly it was iOS only. Yosemite seems to be faster on start up, notably the interval from logging in to running is shorter.

PHOENIX — A suspected bank robber was shot and killed by a witness and another was taken into custody Wednesday afternoon, according to Phoenix police.

Two masked, armed men reportedly robbed a Desert Schools Federal Credit Union near Cactus Road and Tatum Boulevard and were confronted by a witness while leaving with a garbage can full of money.

Police said that after a struggle, the witness shot one suspect, who was pronounced dead at a local hospital.
