Apple did it right… if i see my traffic stats ;)

Cat5_CablesWell, this is suprising, even for me. I already ordered some more bandwidth and traffic for this new Cat, errr Sea Lion, errrrr Mavericks few days ago but this is absolutly crazy!

You generated more traffic since beginning of the year in only now 14 hours. Currently we held around 800 stable connections open and had a total summary of more then 8TB traffic. The Main Mirror is still on 100% port limit since release of the download here.

Guy’s you are really crazy… Some of you may now say, ehh i saw this coming – Well i don’t. I expected much more traffic and bandwidth need but not this much, no this was suprising. Anyway, i hope you enjoy the ride and be able to get much more fun out of all the betas from Apple! There are more to come, more Developer Previews and much more fun! Let me know how is goes with the new Sea Lion, sorry i mean Mavericks OS X 😉

Soooo how was your WWDC2013 feeling?

mavericksI can see betas everyhwere! As a special gift for you guys i prepared a third special download mirror which is not part of the default mirror Please choose the different mirrors directly from below! The total network capacity available is not disclosed but its much more then at the last OS X Developer Preview 😉

Enough tech talk, here are the long awaited OS X 10.9 Mavericks Preview! I decided to not provide the iOS 7 Betas because nobody can use it without a proper developer account.

For testing, for happiness, for celebration for… eehhh just download and enjoy!

WWDC 2013 Event

wwdc13Today is the big day of software! We expect iOS 7, at least a developer preview or some kind of internal beta of OS X 10.9 and hopefuly some nice hardware refresh of MacBook Pro and Mac Pro. I don’t think we will see a new iPad Mini or a new iPhone (Maybe a 5S).

There is a live stream directly from Apple, so anybody can watch it live with Safari or via Apple TV:

If a new OS X is released, expect the download soon. I already have some more capacity available. But for now, happy watching the WWCD 2013 out of the Moscone Center in San Francisco!
