This week's book giveaway is in the OCAJP 8 forum. We're giving away four copies of OCA Java SE 8 Programmer I Study Guide and have Edward Finegan & Robert Liguori on-line! See this thread for details.
Shoot, I still haven't learned all the new features of Mountain Lion. I can't keep up!
They haven't used Ocelot yet, have they? There's a pretty big overlap in the Mac Fanboy community, and the Love Me An Ocelot (LMAO) community. This is bound to cause some backlash. Sometimes Apple just seems intentionally tone deaf! In any case, if Maverick isn't just a one-off, what else fits with the theme. Other NBA teams? Top Gun call signs? Slogans of failed presidential campaigns?
ETA: aw, Bear beat me to it! I wasted ten minutes looking up slogans of other failed presidential campaigns, and couldn't find any that were funny / would work as OS X nicknames.
However, my favorites were:
1884 James Blaine: Ma, Ma, Where’s my Pa, Gone to the White House, Ha, Ha, Ha
1884 Grover Cleveland: Blaine, Blaine, James G. Blaine, The Continental Liar from the State of Maine
Will we ever recapture that level of poetry in another run for the White House?
On Twitter, people were really upset with iOS 7 icons and theme.
Some are saying that Apple is copying Windows 8 Mobile UI, Pandora and Rdio.
Well any way, I'm going to upgrade to iOS 7 once it is out!
I'm a lot less concerned with how things look (though I think there are some nice improvements, and the ditching of the out-dated skeuomorphisms is welcome) than the under-the-hood improvements which look to be vast.

Contrary to many reports in the tech press, OS-X has very little to do with IOS for any versions. And I'm glad. iOS has reasonable engineering restrictions for an embedded device. My $3000 MacBook Pro Retina ain't an embedded device, thank you very much.
