1. Tech writer Alexis Madrigal joins us as our new contributor for all things digital to review Apple’s software release of iOS 7:

Of course, it’s not the first time that Apple has updated its phone software. IOS 7 is, logically, the seventh version of the software. But previous revisions to Apple’s mobile operating system nibbled around the edges of a design that they first unveiled in 2007 along with the original iPhone. IOS 7, by contrast, is a complete, post-Steve Jobs overhaul, spearheaded by the company’s head of design, Jonny Ive.To be clear: if you’re an iPhone user, everything — your email, your calendar, your texts, your phone dialer, your photos, your notes — will look and work differently.In reinventing its key software, the real big change — the visionary change — is that the idea of the operating system is radically new.

It’s not something that should be relegated to 5 percent of the population over in the corner. It’s something that everybody should be exposed to and everyone should have mastery of to some extent, and that’s how we viewed computation and these computation devices.
