In terms of performance, I haven’t noticed a difference between iOS 7 and iOS 8, which is a good thing. Simon Royal has already noted that iOS 8 seems to be more energy efficient than iOS 7 on his iPhone 4S.

While Apple makes opening applications and documents in OS X relatively straightforward, there may be times when you’d like to automate the process, opening those apps and docs when you wish without lifting a finger. Perhaps, for example, you want Mail to open every time you log in. Or maybe you want a specific set of apps to open every Friday at 9:00 am. Or maybe you want to get fancy and have a particular program open whenever a certain disk is mounted.
All of these things are possible using tools built into OS X. In fact, there are four distinct ways to schedule or automate the opening of applications and documents on your Mac, without the intervention of third-party tools.

With both videos and voice memos, iMessage lets you review the content before sending it. You can play it back and then choose to delete or send it off into the world for other peoples’ viewing and judging pleasure.
With still pictures, however, the photo is automatically sent the second your finger releases the camera button.

The new iOS version has a bug that renders sending files by browsers impossible. When you choose a file in a form on HTML page and try to submit it, no file is sent in the request. The browser indicates that it’s waiting for a response, but in fact the response never comes.

Apple has the market share, influential users, and cachet — particularly in the U.S. — to popularize features that others have offered first. If iOS opening up “Today” in the Notification Center to third-party developers fundamentally alters the way people use iPhones — as Roussel suspects is possible — those news organizations holding out on offering mobile apps might find reason to reconsider.
Next time I’ll be submitting to Apple first. They give the best feedback.
