  • I feel so stupid.. I just realized that the default screen looks like a surf wave... and now I know why thanks to this video because Mavericks is a surf spot in California.
    The more you know.
  • Yup!
  • You can lock iCloud keychain by going to keychain app in Mac and using a secondary click on the iCloud. ability to change the password is missing though.
  • Overall Mavericks has been great for my iMac 2008 model. Sped it up a lot from Mountain Lion. Also just fyi the one thing about keychain is when making purchases on non Apple sites that you use the auto fill debit/credit card keychain fill it forces you to put in the 3 digit code on the back of cards every time for that extra protection.
