Another Edit Tip to Fix OS X Yosemite Nvidia CUDA Update Required Problem
In reply to a user that said just editing the CUDA info.plist for the OS X 10.10.1 Nvidia .02 graphics driver key didn't work (this post), the author of that tip posted a follow-up on also copying 2 CUDA library files for the .01 driver version to .02 filenames. (Anyone try renaming the 01 library files to 02 instead of copying them?)
A reply to that tip said it solved the CUDA Update Required problem. (Assume 02 key also added.)

  But again, user mods/edits like this should not be required if Nvidia would sync their CUDA and Graphics driver releases. They posted CUDA 6.5.25 for OS X on Nov 19th, a day after they posted the 343.01.02f01 graphics driver for OS X 10.10.1 that is not compatible with it. (Apparently CUDA 6.5.25 added 343.01.01 driver support but not .02. As of Dec. 7th, still not seen a CUDA update to fix that.)

(Also updated the Nov. 19th archived news' Nvidia CUDA post for this new CUDA edit tip.)

Another Report on Combo 802.11ac Wifi + Bluetooth 4.0 card/kit for Mac Pros
Updated our page of Mac/OS X compatible 802.11ac WiFi adapters with another report on a 802.11ac + BT 4.0 card/kit for Mac Pros. This one from a 2008 Mac Pro owner that bought from ebay. (Page has 3 earlier reports on Apple/OEM 802.11AC/BT4.0 Combo card and kits from other source.)

Also updated earlier post on Edimax 802.11ac USB adapter with a reader's notes that they are working on a driver update for OS X Yosemite.
