The line would dramatically improve connectivity for mobile devices. The prospect of wireless service in the park is causing debate between those who see better technology as a sure thing in the future, and those who think some places — like gorgeous valleys — should be off-limits to modern technology.

Over the course of the past decade, we've seen many changes to OS X - some iterative, some significant. OS X's newest incarnation, "Mavericks" or version 10.9, is a bit of both. It doesn't significantly rework the user interface like Apple did with iOS 7, though there are some nice tweaks. Apple did make a number of changes under the hood to improve performance and efficiency, however, especially for mobile users.

Venture capital coursed through Bangalore’s clogged streets.
