OS X Mavericks: big wave computers

Apple has announced the new Mavericks operating system, inspired by the iconic wave spot, located in Half Moon Bay, California.

The OS X Mavericks is the newest operating system by Apple. The company from California has decided to honour the local big wave with a brand new surfing theme.

"We want to set a name that will carry us for at least the next ten years, and the answer was really obvious: it's those places that inspire us here in California, the place where OS X is designed and built", says Craig Federighi, software engineering leader at Apple.

In 1961, three surfers, Alex Matienzo, Jim Thompson and Dick Knottmeyer decided to test the waves off Pillar Point. Matienzo's white-haired German Shepherd named Maverick is the origin of the big wave surf spot.

The OS X Mavericks includes key changes in iBooks, Apple Maps, Finder Tabs, Safariand a number of other time-saving enhancements.

The new line of MacBook Air and Mac Pro will feature the OS X Mavericks.

The Golden State boasts more than 1,000 miles of coastline, as well as some of the world's best surf breaks. And the Ventura County Coast is one of the original birthplaces of California surf culture.
