Apple recently released macOS Sierra, the latest version of the Mac operating system. It had new features in it, but one of the most notable changes was something it left out — the X, the Roman numeral 10, from the name. It's a small, unimportant change, but it's kind of the end of an era. I talked to Apple history buff Stephen Hackett to reflect on the name's past.
You can check out Stephen's blog post about the lingering Xs in macOS Sierra. Also, you can watch videos of people who are really upset about people calling it Mac OS Ex.
This summer, Apple opened their first retail store in Brooklyn, up in Williamsburg. It was near my apartment, so with recording gear in tow, I went to investigate. It was my first Apple Store opening, but I got to talk to some seasoned Apple Store opening veterans.
