Apple's layered user experience approach

Apple implements an interesting layered user experience in both iOS and OS X. They've always done this to some degree; early on with Mac OS X, UNIX gurus could live comfortably in Terminal while those raised on the GUI of classic Mac and Windows would feel right at home in Aqua.

Apple holding "Back to the Mac" event October 20

Looks like Apple will be holding an event in October again, this time called "Back to the Mac" and no doubt focusing on -- OS X 10.7 Lion?! -- new MacBooks, a new MacBook Air, and maybe iLife '11 and iWork '11?

Since iOS is such an integral part of Apple these days, it's hard to believe they'll skip iPhone, iPod touch, and iPad entirely, so we'll be keeping our eyes peeled for anything from new slideshow exports (yawn!) to a whole new app for making HTML 5 goodness for our mobile devices, or Back to my Mac for iOS?

I still want an iOS layer to replace Dashboard and FrontRow. How about that?

What do you expect?

iPhone Dev-Team: Mac OS X 10.5.7 Safe for Jailbreak, Fixes DFU Bug

Good news for Mac OS X-based Jailbreakers! After having to resort to using powered USB hubs or patching in older versions of files to work around a bug in 10.5.6 that prevented DFU mode from being recognized, the iPhone Dev-Team dropped a note a Twitter to give 10.5.7 the all-clear:

The new 10.5.7 Leopard update is safe. In fact it's more jailbreak-friendly than 10.5.6, since the DFU-mode bug is gone.

So no nasty cat-and-mouse-game shenanigans this time around, and even a slight improvement over the previous -- unintentional -- round.
