Alleged OS X 10.10 Screenshots Appear ahead of WWDC...

It isn't any secret that Apple will be showing off OS X 10.10 during its Worldwide Developer Conference keynote event Monday morning, but until now there have't been any images showing what to expect from the next version of the Mac operating system. Four photos, however, appeared -- and then were pulled -- at Reddit showing a more iOS 7-like flat look is in store for the next OS X update.

The Mac Observer Spin: Regardless of whether or not these leaked OS X 10.10 photos are legit, it makes sense that the Mac OS will start to look more like iOS over time.

Bandojo Lets You Play Music Even If You’ve Never...

Bandojo, an iOS app from a team that includes Andrew Stone of Twittelator (and Videator, and Stone Design) fame, allows both musicians and non-musicians to explore and play music, regardless of experience. The software has over a dozen built-in soundscapes on top of which you can play one of a number of different solo instruments. You choose notes by simply tapping colored dots on a board that looks a little like a Twister mat. If you know solfege ("do, re, mi" etc) you can see what those intervals are, but the beauty is you don't have to know anything other than what you like to hear. As you find colors that sound good to your ear, you can use them in different places and at different spots (octaves, for those who care) along the board. You can even play notes simultaneously to make chords. Pretty much whatever you think, you can do. A few minutes with this is all it takes to completely grok it and you'll lose yourself and just be able to play. You can link up wirelessly with...

Let’s Leave Apple’s Tim Cook Alone for Awhile

The poor guy. Everyone writes about him day and night. This and that. He's no Steve Jobs. Maybe, but he must be his own man. Lamentations: he's just an operations guy. Praise: He sat next to Steve Jobs for over a decade and had Jobs's trust. The reigns of Apple were handed over to him, but (tearfully) he doesn't know anything. His hair is funny. He's saving Apple. He's destroying Apple. Can we have the madness stop?

iPhone Carrier Deals Pushes up Wells Fargo AAPL...

Wells Fargo analyst Maynard Um raised his 12 month target value range for Apple's stock on Friday because the number of iPhone carrier deals the company has in place is on the rise. Currently, 323 cell service carriers offer the iPhone, up from 316 only a month ago. His target range is now between US$595 and $640, up from $515 and $585.

The Mac Observer Spin: It may not seem like there are many places for Apple to continue expanding iPhone availability, but clearly there are. More carriers means more potential iPhone sales.

Apple Denied Stay in Ebook Antitrust Damages Trial

Apple's efforts to stop 33 states from seeking damages over antitrust claims fell short on Thursday when a Federal Appeals Court ruled the case can move forward. The states are asking for what could amount to over US$800 million for Apple's involvement in what the court deemed was a conspiracy with publishers to artificially raise the price of books.

The Mac Observer Spin: Considering how often Apple's arguments in front of Judge Cote have fallen of deaf ears, it seems likely the states will be awarded a hefty sum in damages. Of course, Apple will appeal, so this case will continue to play out for a very long time. In the end, Amazon is still the big winner because the DOJ and Federal Courts have all but given the company a formal endorsement for its tactics.
