There are two possible reasons why the adoption of Mountain Lion is set to vastly outpace Lion: Mountain Lion is a bit cheaper than Lion at $19.99 compared to $29.99. And Lion was considered a largely evolutionary upgrade.
Unhappy with Lion’s new iCal interface? You’re not alone. While some fixes exist, I’ve found BusyCal not only retains all the good stuff from iCal for Snow Leopard, but also adds many new features that make it a great purchase for anyone.
System Preferences are the motivational speakers of your operating system. Don’t like something? The OS gives you the power to change! I’m not going to list every preference, but I am going to tell which choices you can make will have the greatest impact.
Apple now has a free tool available for Lion that, once downloaded, will allow you to create another recovery drive using a USB drive instead. It’s now very easy to create your own Apple-sanction Lion install and recovery drive. Just follow these steps.
When Snow Leopard arrived, it came with an updated version of QuickTime, called QuickTime Player X. It lost a lot of features from the previous release, QuickTime 7. With Lion, a new version of QuickTime Player drops the “X” and gains a few more advanced features.
Managing email on OS X has always been about finding the lesser of many evils. I have too many email addresses to use webmail efficiently, but I’ve never been happy with any email program on the Mac. That finally changed, thanks to OS X Lion.
The wait is over. Lion is here. But are you (and your Mac) prepared? Here are five things you need to really, really need to do before you upgrade to Mac OS 10.7 (and links on how to do them).
The latest update to our favorite OS code-named after felids, Lion, is due out sometime this month. To celebrate, we’re going to take a look at how Lion’s new features evolved from its predecessors, its little brother (iOS) and other sources.
Apple is dropping Rosetta from OS X Lion, which means PowerPC-only apps won’t work on Macs running the operating system. It might surprise you how many still-useful and used apps that will leave out in the cold. Here’s a few, and some replacement suggestions.
The U.S. Patent and Trademark Office published a new patent that describes a system by which Spaces, Apple’s system for operating multiple independent desktops on one computer, might be brought to the iPad. Could this be a preview of the merger of iOS and OS X?
The Lion developer preview was released about two weeks ago, and while the marquee features such as Launchpad and Mission Control are getting most of the Mac blogosphere’s attention, there are some smaller changes in Lion that I think are worth pointing out.
Mac OS X Lion, the next version of Apple’s Mac operating system, got a developer preview release today. Alongside the developer preview, Apple gave a little more insight into the upcoming changes Lion ushers in for OS X, including many features borrowed from the iPad.
In my coverage of OS X Lion, I wondered how the app resume feature would work. I noticed that in the preview, the activity indicators in the Dock (those white dots) were all gone. Then I realized: There are no activity indicators in iOS.
