Yosemite has just been released. Like any new OSX, it has various problems with the first release, so unless you really need it, I’d wait for the first minor update to come out to fix some of the buys.

If you decide to install Yosemite, here are a few things to be aware of before you upgrade.

  • Fuji Xerox printers don’t work.   Here is a workaround.

  • Problems with Gmail and Apple mail where you cannot log in to check your mail – password error. Tis can be solved by deleting your gmail account from Apple mail then putting the Gmail settings in again.

I’m talking about an application where I can make a short note to myself and come back later and find it easily.
