Mac OS X Yosemite gets a new Notification Centre with widgets along with new Spotlight Search
Apple is trying to bring the mac and iOS experience together and today they have introduced few changes to notification centre in OS X Yosemite. The new Notification Centre now features a Today view like iOS showing your calendar, stocks, weather and other info. But Apple has gone a step ahead and has now allowed widgets too in the Notification Centre like calculator for easy one click access to all the important tasks.
Apple has also allowed third party apps to integrate their widgets in notification centre which will enhance the usability of the Notification Centre. Other than the new notification Centre we also get a new redesigned Spotlight Search. When you click on the spot light search you will get a translucent search bar in the middle where you will not only be able to search for your files or mails but much more than that. When you type anything in spotlight search it will show results from wikipedia along with other useful sources which might be of your interest.
You will now be able to search for your favourite movie and the search will let you know about the movie theaters showing the movie or the streaming media in itunes. The Spotlight Search is much more productive now which will change the way you search!
The “geek mind” is concerned with more than just the latest iPhone rumors, or which company will win the gaming console wars. I4U is concerned with more than just the latest photo shoot or other celebrity gossip.
The “geek mind” is concerned with life, in all its different forms and facets. The geek mind wants to know about societal and financial issues, both abroad and at home. If a Fortune 500 decides to raise their minimum wage, or any high priority news, the geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants to know the top teams in the National Football League, or who’s likely to win the NBA Finals this coming year. The geek mind wants to know who the hottest new models are, or whether the newest blockbuster movie is worth seeing. The geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants—needs—knowledge.
