[TechRepublic] Everyone vs. Apple

TechRepublic Australia Wrapper

Editor's note
Hello again, everyone. I think it's fair to say that today is Apple day. The company's Mountain Lion update to OS X has arrived, and the Cupertino giant remains in court today, continuing its Australian face-off against Samsung. If Apple isn't your thing, make sure you check out these stories: Barry Saunders delving into why maintaining UX libraries can be a waste of time, and Brien Posey re-examining his Windows 8 predictions from January last year, with disturbing results. It's nice when a writer returns to their former prediction articles to see how they matched up. This is one reason why you'll never find me providing a simple list of predictions; the future in the tech world is never what you'd expect. Have a great week all! --Chris
