New Filesystem For next Mac OS!

As noted here it looks like Apple is finally going to be replacing the HFS filesystem with something more modern. It will have Copy on Write, Snapshots and Space Sharing (like ZFS). Also noted is that AFP protocol is being deprecated and you won’t be able to share files on APFS formatted volumes. I guess that’s not surprising considering the fact that SMB has been the default protocol for a while now. 



Andy Ihnatko switches to Android

Gruber has an article about Andy Ihnatko switching to a Samsung Galaxy SIII from an iPhone 4s. He is surprised about him picking the Samsung over the current Nexus device. I’m going to guess it had to do with wanting the speed of LTE vs. HSPA+. It’s a hard choice, I have the previous Nexus, the Samsung Galaxy Nexus. Frankly, the hardware sucks. I’m not knocking Android, I think it’s great, but really from what I’ve seen with my Samsung Phone, and some friends who have other Samsung devices, they are definitely not in the Apple level of devices. (I also have the original Nexus phone too.)
