We’re still processing the flood of new technologies announced by Apple at last week’s Worldwide Developer Conference, with Adam Engst and Josh Centers collaborating to bring you a look at 10 annoyances that Apple will be addressing in iOS 8 and OS X Yosemite. Plus, in FunBITS, Josh looks at new technologies for gamers coming in iOS 8, as well as this year’s Apple Design Award winners. Moving beyond WWDC, Josh also spent several weeks using Amazon’s new Fire TV in order to compare it to the Apple TV, and Julio Ojeda-Zapata reviews Google Docs and Google Sheets, the search giant’s new iOS productivity apps. Also, TidBITS members can now read the latest chapter of Charles Edge’s streamed “Take Control of OS X Server,” which covers the often mind-bending Open Directory. Notable software releases this week include Keyboard Maestro 6.4.3, Tinderbox 6.0, BBEdit 10.5.11 and TextWrangler 4.5.9, Fission 2.2.1, and 1Password 4.4.1.
