The new version of High Sierra comes a little over a week after the second macOS High Sierra beta was first released to developers.The new beta can be downloaded from the Apple Developer Center, and once installed, subsequent betas will be available through the Software Update mechanism in the Mac App Store.Apple earlier this week introduced updated versions of both iOS 11 and tvOS 11, and those beta 2 updates preceded public beta releases , so it's possible we'll get a macOS High Sierra public beta release in the near future.macOS High Sierra builds on features introduced with macOS Sierra.
Fans of the Colorado Rockies, Detroit Tigers, Kansas City Royals, Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim, and New York Yankees are now able to use Apple Pay either for the first time or in many more places at each team's respective stadium.Los Angeles company Appetize today announced it has launched its modern point-of-sale solution at five Major League Baseball stadiums, including Angel Stadium in Anaheim, Comerica Park in Detroit, Coors Field in Denver, Kauffman Stadium in Kansas City, and Yankee Stadium in New York City.While some of the ballparks already accepted Apple Pay to a limited extent, Appetize's technology extends Apple Pay widely to concession stands, team merchandise stores, and other new areas.
The NFC-enabled terminals also support other EMV-based payment options such as Chip-and-PIN cards and Masterpass.Appetize said wait staff will also be using its iPad mini-based handheld point-of-sale solution for in-seat ordering and delivery.A spokesperson for Appetize told MacRumors that most of the ballparks were previously using legacy point-of-sale systems, primarily with swipe-only functionality for credit and debit cards.
Kauffman Stadium did widely accept Apple Pay at concession stands during the 2014 World Series in partnership with MasterCard.Appetize had already installed its solution at Dodger Stadium in Los Angeles, Fenway Park in Boston, and Citi Field in New York City.

A free 15-day trial version of Yoink is available on the developer's website
Popular Mac drag-and-drop app Yoink received a substantial update on Thursday, adding the ability to bring back last removed files and better sharing options, as well as many smaller improvements.The Yoink app aims to simplify the action of dragging and dropping files and app-content on the macOS desktop by providing a temporary place for files to be dragged to.
Yoink fades in when users starts a drag - either with files from Finder or app-content, like an image from a website - offering them a temporary place for your dragged files.With their files temporarily docked in the Yoink pane and the mouse free, users can more easily navigate to the intended destination of files, which is especially helpful when moving and copying files between different windows, Spaces or (fullscreen) apps.Today's version 3.3 update allows users to bring back Yoink's last removed files by keeping its keyboard shortcut pressed down or right-clicking on Yoink's window.
