Launchpad If you don’t understand how typing the name of an application into a search box can be so much more difficult than clicking an icon in the Dock, I suggest that you have not spent enough time with novice users.

It’s called Circles.
Movie or series with made up website that doesn’t exist in real life.
Movie or series with no soundtrack list.
Song with no lyric page.
Lost series finale didn’t give us any explanation to the question that need to be answered. You can’t save him, Jack! You just can’t. Moving on, Dude. Whatever happened, happened. See you in another life, brother.
