iOS 8 Beta 4 Reportedly Coming Monday, July 21

As iOS 8 proceeds through development and testing, the fourth beta version will be seeded to developers on Monday, July 21, according to BGR. A release on that date would mark a two-week interval since the release of the third beta on July 7, down from a roughly three-week interval between the second and third betas.

BGR regularly publishes reports predicting future release dates for iOS betas, and while the predictions are sometimes off by a day or two as was the case with beta 3, they are usually close to the actual date barring any last-minute schedule changes by Apple. As a result, it is reasonable to believe the fourth beta should arrive early next week rather than the following week.

It's too bad Apple doesn't have a website or anything to list and describe them one by one....


You could have at least linked it (https://www.apple.com/ios/ios8/) for him as part of your sarcastic response.

Why can't the USA call Autumn season by its proper name, as the rest of the world does? Why this childish 'fall' nonsense? "Oh, my dear 3-year-old, the leaves are falling from the trees, so now it is Fall." Please.



Fall and autumn are both accepted and widely used terms for the season that comes between summer and winter. Some who consider British English the only true English regard fall as an American barbarism, but this attitude is not well founded. Fall is in fact an old term for the season, originating in English in the 16th century or earlier. It was originally short for fall of the year or fall of the leaf, but it commonly took the one-word form by the 17th century, long before the development of American English. So while the term is now widely used in the U.S., it is not exclusively American, nor is it American in origin.


According to Slate, British lexicographers begrudgingly admit that the United States got the better end of the stick. In "The King's English" (1908), H.W. Fowler wrote, "Fall is better on the merits than autumn, in every way: it is short, Saxon (like the other three season names), picturesque; it reveals its derivation to every one who uses it, not to the scholar only, like autumn."

GENERAL QUESTION:

On a similar note, why can't the USA metricate, instead of continuing to use outdated Imperial measuring units?


Because freedom.
