No RAID support in Disk Utility anymore, but we now have a taco icon and middle finger! Woohoo! That middle finger one will come in handy when I send Tim Cook my feedback on how I feel about Apple's priorities these days. ;)

Hey, the new iTunes update has a nice BEGGAR SCREAM on it when you start iTunes after the update! "WON'T YOU PLEASE TRY iTUNES MUSIC!?!? PLLLLLEEEEEAASSSE??? COME ON! START YOUR FREE TRIAL ALREADY!!??!?! I'LL THROW IN A BURRITO ICON FOR FREE!"

Yeah, it was pretty annoying. I guess everyone went back to Spotify after the trial period ended because iTunes looked like some kid designed the interface. I hear his name is Johnny Boy.

I'm really tired of Apple releasing a new OS every year. It's just ridiculous. It's too fast and it almost always takes a good 6-9 months just to iron out the new bugs. I wish they would at least move to a 2-year cycle so we could quit chasing down all of these problems for awhile.

Everything has been working great except for two things. First, Norton Antivirus started taking up 235% of my CPU. Turned my fans on my MBA and everything. Crazy.

Second, battery life seems horrible. I am at 60% and it says I have 3 hours of battery life left on my 2015 MBA. On 10.11.0 it would have said about 7-9 hours left. Have no idea what it going on but I hope it's just acting a bit screwy for now and this isn't permanent.
A reason then to get rid of Norton... Jebus, i wouldn't even put that on a Windoze machine, let alone a Mac, which doesn't actually need it...???

where is the combo update ?
Update should be working now... I am updating as we speak 942MB combo update.
http://swcdn.apple.com/content/downloads/58/29/031-42280/7dk26w4zk4mepf5uydph4wvw6wgmt4f432/OSXUpd10.11.1Auto.pkg
Guys, there is no combo, you need a minimum 10.x.2 version for it to be called a combo.
10.11.0 is the new OS, then 10.11.1 is only 1 update from 10.11, the combo combines previous ones, so there will be a combo from 10.11.2 and onwards since it will skip all the former 10.11.1-2-3-4...versions.
