Dear Nishant,

many thanks for your wonderful work.

Just two updates about Mac install of TensorFlow.

1. As at https://docs.docker.com/docker-for-mac/ , they say that if you have Yosemite
or newer running on a 2010 or newer Mac, you have to use Docker for Mac
and not Docker Toolbox.

The Docker Toolbox installation does not work in Yosemite or newer due
to (I guess) Apache/Mac problems.

2. At https://www.tensorflow.org/versions/r0.8/get_started/os_setup.html#pip-installation
there is a simple pip install

sudo easy_install --upgrade six
sudo pip install --upgrade https://storage.googleapis.com/tensorflow/mac/tensorflow-0.8.0-py2-none-any.whl

(for Python 3
sudo pip3 install --upgrade https://storage.googleapis.com/tensorflow/mac/tensorflow-0.8.0-py3-none-any.whl

Best, Pietro

Thanks for the info!

I've been trying to delay updating the installation appendix because (as you noticed) things may change.

I will definitely take a closer look at the Mac installation in the next iteration.

Thanks!
