Nvidia CUDA v6.5.14 Update for OS X:
(Clip from the d/l page. Had some nvidia site connection problems at times.)

"New Release 6.5.14
CUDA driver 6.5.14 is required to work with CUDA 6.5 Toolkit.
(Nvidia corrected text above since original posting.)
An alternative method to download the latest CUDA driver is within Mac OS environment (If you installed Nvidia SW previously). Access the latest driver through System Preferences > Other > CUDA. Click 'Install CUDA Update'.

Supported Products:
Supports all NVIDIA products available on Mac HW."

The "Additional Information" tab has more installation info and direct link to CUDADriver-6.5.14-macos.dmg . (I don't have an Nvidia card installed in a Mavericks Mac to test these.) Searching today (8/22/2014) didn't find a later OS X Geforce/Quadro driver web page than the previous release in July.)

Apple iPhone 5 Battery Replacement Program
Today (8/22/2014) Apple posted a page on their iPhone 5 Battery Replacement Program:
" Apple has determined that a very small percentage of iPhone 5 devices may suddenly experience shorter battery life or need to be charged more frequently. The affected iPhone 5 devices were sold between September 2012 and January 2013 and fall within a limited serial number range.

If your iPhone 5 is experiencing these symptoms and meets the eligibility requirements noted below, Apple will replace your iPhone 5 battery, free of charge.

If your iPhone is in working order and exhibits the symptoms noted above, use the serial number checker (on program page) to see if it is eligible for this program.

Replacement process
As of August 22, 2014, the replacement process will be available in the U.S. and China. In other countries, it will be available as of August 29, 2014." (see program page for more info)
