Retro-rock band Greta Van Fleet’s rise over the past year has been nothing short of astonishing.Just 10 months ago, the band was playing the lobby of F.M. Kirby Center in Wilkes-Barre. A month later, its song “Highway Tune” hit No. 1 on Billboard’s Rock charts, and two months later, another single, “Safari Song,” achieved the same spot. That same month, the band was the hit of the Rock Allegiance Festival at BB&T Pavilion in Camden, N.J.On Saturday, Greta Van Fleet showed it is deserving of all that attention, and that it likely isn’t yet finished with its rise.Its sold-out concert at Philadelphia’s Electric Factory – packed more than for any act in recent memory – showed that the public has bought into Greta Van Fleet’s neo-Led Zeppelin music not just on records, but as a live entity, as well.The surprisingly mixed-age crowd raucously cheered the band throughout its 13-song, 82-minute set, from the opening of a … [Read more...] about REVIEW: Greta Van Fleet shows at Philly’s Electric Factory it’s worthy of the praise, and isn’t finished rising yet

This story was written by CNET's Elinor Mills Friday's release of the new version of the Mac OS, dubbed Snow Leopard, could include some security features that would make it secure, or at least push it closer to the level of security that Vista and Windows 7 have, experts said this week. Contrary to popular Mac fanboy belief, Macintosh is not more secure from a software standpoint than modern Windows; it's merely safer to use because malware writers prefer to target the platform with the biggest install base, according to Charlie Miller and Dino Dai Zovi, co-authors of The Mac Hacker's Handbook, which came out this spring."Apple hasn't implemented all the security features that Vista has," Miller said. "They made some improvements in Leopard, but they are still behind."If there is any truth to rumors circulating about Snow Leopard, the operating system security playing field could become more level as of this weekend and Mac users will really have something to brag about.

By "Sunday Morning" contributing videographer Judy Lehmberg. I love to travel, and when I'm not traveling I love to read about it. I've already plenty of travel books in my life, everything from how to survive in America on zero dollars a day to which luxury safari is the best (the one that costs $1,500/day or the $3,000/day version). And no, I would not pay for either of those. I use a different method of selecting travel destinations. My method has been boiled down to a simple equation entirely based on dollar-per-bird. I have a brother-in-law who developed an "Effort-to-Reward Ratio." When someone suggests a trip the first words out of his mouth are "What is the ERR on that?" His daughter and I are pretty serious bird watchers. We have a twist on the ERR. We want to know how much it will cost in terms of effort, but money is more of a limitation. Our biggest criterion is cost-per-bird species. The formula is simple: Divide the number of bird species in the country of interest by … [Read more...] about Nature up close: The new math of travel
Last Updated Jul 13, 2015 12:54 PM EDT Apple is launching the new versions of its mobile and desktop operating systems in the fall, but intrepid users can get their hands on iOS9 and OS X El Capitan today by enrolling in the company's public beta. Apple revealed details about the new operating systems at last month's WWDC, including improved multitasking abilities and better recognition for voice commands.You could wait a couple months for the market-ready versions to come out. Or you could be part of the beta program and help Apple put on the finishing touches by testing it out and sending in your feedback. If you're eager to take the plunge (and deal with bugs), CNET's Jason Cipriani explains how to do it:First things first: Yes, Apple has released iOS 9 as a public beta, but that doesn't mean it's ready for everyday use. In fact, I'd suggest you stay away if you don't like troubleshooting issues. And even after you've attempted to fix the issue, there are times when you simply have … [Read more...] about CBS News Logo How to get the new iOS 9 in beta
