First for the bug. Now that I have SMS messaging available to me on my macbook pro, I am using it. I texted a co-worker with some connectivity issue, and my message to his iphone went green, bypassing Apple's messaging infrastructure and going through as an SMS message. Messages on my macbook pro showed an unread message from this specific message. So I read the message. It was marked read. Then I went about my business and saw that messages showed an unread message. It was that same message, which I read again. This kept happening. For at least a couple of days. I see it is now marked read, perhaps after a reboot. Annoying.
Next - iphoto icloud. When I use iphoto, I have to attach an external drive. I just do not have room on my internal drive for my iphoto library, which is around 180GB. Thus I am interested in having my photos in the cloud if possible, hopefully both protecting my photos and removing my need to hook up an external drive to manage my photos. With ios8 (or is it 8.1?) ios devices are ready for photos in icloud beta. Apple has information at https://www.apple.com/icloud/photos/
It is not yet available for Yosemite -see more at imore: http://www.imore.com/photos-os-x-yosemite-explained
There are features I am not yet testing, but I am interested in looking at soon. If you have family members with Apple ID's and you share with them, they could interest you. You can can now share other icloud item types:
- Reminder categories
If you run the OS X Yosemite version or log in to icloud.com, these now have options to share! I look forward to sharing calendars and reminder categories with my family.
