Mac users will get a chance to try out Apple's newest operating system starting today. The new operating system, named Yosemite, was unveiled at last month's Worldwide Developers Conference.

Happy birthday, iPhone. You’re 10 years old! What do you want to be when you grow up? When Steve Jobs unveiled the first iPhone 10 years ago today, he touted Apple’s ability to combine three products -- “a revolutionary mobile phone, a widescreen iPod with touch controls, and a breakthrough internet communications device with desktop-class email, web browsing, searching and maps -- into one small and lightweight handheld device.” Those characteristics are still in today’s iPhones, but they’re so much more.
