  • Just the facts: skip the comments

    I was expecting less personal comments from the author and more facts describing what to find in 10.9. I can make my own judgement of whether or not a new feature is to be liked or not and certainly don’t need the author’s views. Just give me the facts is what I’m looking for. For example the use of the ‘+’ button in Safari and comments such as “I’m not sure the frequency with which people add bookmarks, … warrants such prominent, permanent placement for this button” . Don’t care what the auther thinks, just tell me how the feature works, ie. stick to the facts.
