Swift is a new programming language for iOS and OS X apps that builds on the best of C and
Objective-C, without the constraints of C compatibility. Swift adopts safe programming patterns
and adds modern features to make programming easier, more flexible, and more fun. Swift’s
clean slate, backed by the mature and much-loved Cocoa and Cocoa Touch frameworks, is an
opportunity to reimagine how software development works.

Swift feels familiar to Objective-C developers. It adopts the readability of Objective-C’s named
parameters and the power of Objective-C’s dynamic object model. It provides seamless access
to existing Cocoa frameworks and mix-and-match interoperability with Objective-C code.
Building from this common ground, Swift introduces many new features and unifies the
procedural and object-oriented portions of the language.

Swift is friendly to new programmers. It is the first industrial-quality systems programming
language that is as expressive and enjoyable as a scripting language. It supports playgrounds,
an innovative feature that allows programmers to experiment with Swift code and see the
results immediately, without the overhead of building and running an app.

Swift combines the best in modern language thinking with wisdom from the wider Apple
engineering culture. The compiler is optimized for performance, and the language is optimized
for development, without compromising on either. It’s designed to scale from “hello, world” to
an entire operating system. All this makes Swift a sound future investment for developers and
for Apple.Swift is a fantastic way to write iOS and OS X apps, and will continue to evolve with new
features and capabilities.

Luna : The next generation of Elementary OS (Free Download)

Lightweight and beautiful. All-new apps. A refined look. 
Mac OS X is definitely one of, if not the most, consistent and aesthetically pleasing desktop OS on the market to date but in order to use it, you still need to get a Mac. If you work on a Windows PC and don’t want to build a Hackintosh, you can try this alternative: Elementary OS Luna.

Elementary OS Luna is a Linux distro based on Ubuntu 12.04 LTS. It’s the second OS developed by the Elementary OS team after Elementary OS Jupiter (which was based on Ubuntu 10.1)
The Elementary OS team’s focus on minimalism extends beyond Luna’s user interface. Elementary OS Luna comes with only the most basic applications pre-installed.
Amongst these applications are:
  • Midori, a web browser
  • Noise, a music player
  • Geary, an email client
  • Shotwell, a photo manager
  • Totem, a video player
  • Empathy, an internet messaging client
  • Scratch, a text editor

On the whole, though, Elementary OS Luna is a good Linux distro that will definitely appeal to users looking for a stable and smooth OS that manages to provide some of Mac OS X’s visual polish and consistent user experience.
Elementary OS Luna will never replace Mac OS X, that’s for sure but, for users who are unable to run the latest version of Mac OS X on their computers, Elementary OS Luna is definitely worth a try.

FREE DOWNLOAD : LINK 1 (64-stable)  
                                    LINK 2 (64- iso file) 
                                    LINK 3 (32 - iso file) 

Mac OS X 10.10, aka Yosemite #WWDC14

The operating system has a new look, a refined toolbar, new notification center features, and a dark mode.

Additionally, the OS will now synchronize with Apple's iOS mobile system through AirDrop file sharing, iMessage messaging, and the ability to make and take phone calls.

While developers have access to Yosemite, Apple will release the OS to the public in the fall. But the company is allowing non-developers to sign up for the software's test version this summer through a public beta program.

The system's features, including new iCloud synchronization abilities and Mail Drop, a way to share large files through email. 
He also boasted fast video streaming, without a plugin, on Safari, and new tab feature.

You Can Now Text 911 in an Emergency

If you're deaf or in an emergency where you can't speak, getting a hold of 911 is problematic. In just a few hours, the nation's leading mobile providers will start the support of texting to 911 for emergencies in certain areas.P
The providers supporting the service include AT&T, Sprint, T-Mobile and Verizon Wireless. For the time being, only certain states and counties have call centers that support 911 texting, but the goal is to get this service rolled out nationwide as soon as possible. If you're located in an area that will allow the service, make sure you provide your location when texting 911. Call centers will not have the ability to triangulate your location the same way they can with a phone call.

Apple in talks to buy Beats for $3.2B

Apple is closing in on its largest ever acquisition with the planned $3.2 billion purchase of Beats Electronics, the headphone maker and music streaming operator founded by music producer Jimmy Iovine and the hip-hop star Dr Dre.
The deal could be announced as early as next week, people familiar with the negotiations said, but they cautioned that some details had yet to be agreed and talks could still fall apart.
A deal of this scale would represent a radical departure for Tim Cook, chief executive of the iPhone maker: under the late Steve Jobs, Apple was reluctant to pursue high-profile acquisitions.
Apple will acquire Beats' streaming music service, which launched this year, and its audio equipment business, which includes its brand of headphones and audio equipment. The Beats management team will report to Mr Cook, said people familiar with the deal. Apple and Beats declined to comment.
A decade after Mr Jobs transformed the music industry with the iTunes download store and the iPod digital music player, the deal is likely to be seen as an admission that Apple needs to look outside its Cupertino labs to continue making an impact.
While Beats commands a leading position in the premium headphone market, its real value to Apple is in revitalising its "cool" at a time when iTunes has waned in popularity and Samsung's marketing campaigns have savaged the iPhone's brand.

New Firefox version delivers Chrome-clone UI redesign to World+Dog

Firefox 29 has left beta to become the latest stable release for desktop PCs and Android devices, bringing with it a long-promised UI overhaul, new customization options, and an improved data sync feature.

Mozilla senior user experience designer Jennifer Morrow compared the old Firefox UI to a sinking ship and said one could think of the redesign as "a new hull."
"It's not an interface adjustment or tweak," Morrow wrote. "It's not a bug fix. It's a complete re-envisioning of Firefox's user experience, and it's been brewing for the past five years."
Long story short, the Mozilla browser's "Australis" redesign means it is now virtually a dead ringer for Google's Chrome, although it does offer a few unique features if you look past the surface.
Gone is the familiar orange Firefox menu in the upper left of the desktop browser window. In its place is a new menu to the right of the URL bar (just like Chrome) that's activated by clicking an icon of three lines stacked on top of each other (just like Chrome).

Firefox 29 also marks the official debut of the improved Sync feature, which is powered by Mozilla's new Firefox Accounts – yet another Chrome-ish concept. The new service is now included in both the desktop and Android versions of the browser.
Overall, if you were pleased with the design decisions Google made with Chrome, you'll be happy with Firefox's new direction, which Mozilla say was designed "to reflect how you use the Web today." If, on the other hand, you preferred how you used the web yesterday, you might be disappointed.
One thing Firefox prides itself on, however, is its high degree of customizability. If you don't like the new defaults, Firefox 29 still supports over 300,000 available Appearance Add-Ons, including so-called Complete Themes that can change the look and feel of the browser radically.

Firefox 29 is available for download now from Mozilla's homepage and from the Google Play store for Android devices, and it will begin rolling out to current users via the browser's built-in update feature over the coming days. ®

The Google Science Fair is an online science competition sponsored by GoogleLegoCERNNational Geographic and Scientific American.It was announced in January 2011; all entries were due at 11:59:59 pm Eastern Daylight Time on April 7, 2011 and judging occurred in July 2011. The competition is open to 13–18 year old students around the globe, who formulate a hypothesis, perform an experiment, and present their results.All students must have an internet connection and a free Google Account to participate, as the projects are submitted through Google Sites in English, German, Italian, Spanish, or French.The final submission must include ten sections, which are the summary, an "About Me" page, the steps of the project, and a works cited page.
Entries are judged on eight core criteria, which include the student's presentation, question, hypothesis, research, experiment, data, observations, and conclusion.Prizes are awarded to three finalists. The grand prize includes a National Geographic trip to the Galapagos Islands, a US$50,000 scholarship, and an "experience" at a sponsoring organization; finalists will receive a US$25,000 scholarship and assorted packages from sponsoring organizations.While Larry Page and Sergey Brin were PhD students at Stanford University in California, they created Google in January 1996 as a research project; Google employee Tom Oliveri highlighted the company's early days: "Science fairs help students to explore their vision and curiosity through science. Our company was founded on an experiment. We firmly believe that science can change the world," he stated.


Windows 8.1 Update goes live, download required for 8.1 users to receive patches beyond May 13

The update, which arrives as part of April’s Patch Tuesday, is formally known as Windows 8.1 Update (previously Update 1 or Spring Update) and will be mandatory to all Windows 8.1 users. In fact, those that decline the update won’t receive any further patches beyond May 13, 2014.
So, Windows 8.1 RTM has essentially reached End-of-Life early and Windows 8.1 Update is the new servicing baseline for Windows 8.1 -- Windows 8 will still get security updates. The reason behind the move is unclear but enterprise customers in the midst of a Windows 8.1 rollout will need to get busy.
In any case keyboard and mouse users will likely want to get this update as soon as possible. Among the changes, Windows is finally becoming contextually aware, meaning if you are on a PC without a touchscreen it will now boot directly to the desktop by default, while touch-enabled laptop or tablets will boot to Metro. Users can still manually configure this too.
Microsoft is also making the default program for pictures and audio files relevant to the device they are being opened on. Whereas it used to be that these files were associated with the Metro-style Photo and Music apps (a big annoyance), pictures and audio files now open by default in the Windows Photo Viewer or Windows Media Player if opened from a non-touch PC.
