MacVoices #14182: Joe Kissell Takes Control of Beta Testing Yosemite

For the adventurous among us, Joe Kissell  has just released Take Control of Beta Testing Yosemite, and just in time to help guide you through the best way to work with the newest version of the Mac OS. Joe gives us some options on how best to install Yosemite to prevent problems, what you need to do before diving in, and what to expect when you take your first walk in the park. Why would you want to try a public beta? Joe explains the benefits and risks, what is working and what isn’t yet, and more.
