» Mavericks and battery life

Kif Leswing, writing for Wired:

If there’s one major point of emphasis for Apple’s new desktop operating system, it’s battery life.

It’s kind of amazing how just adding the percentage of power being used as a column in Activity Monitor reminds you that that thing you’re using? Yeah, it uses power.

Apple’s had a long-running beef with Adobe’s Flash, but the reason isn’t corporate politics. It’s because Flash kills batteries dead.

Remember that fuss about Flash? Glad that’s over.
