For a while, it looked like computers would come with more storage than you could ever need, but some modern Macs are almost heading in the opposite direction. Solid-state drives mean you must now be a little careful about weighty files—the smallest MacBook Air, after all, has only 64GB of precious, precious disk space.
Apple CEO Steve Jobs has teased some exciting changes are ahead for MobileMe, but a French website may have uncovered evidence in Mac OS X 10.7 Lion that indicates the service will be getting a new name as well.
There have been some curious rumors lately that Apple plans to rush out a gold master for Mac OS X 10.7 Lion, despite many developers complaining of bugs in need of squashing. Cupertino just pushed out a second beta of the next Mac OS X to hopefully alleviate some of their suffering.
We’re already two months into 2011 and nary a word has been heard from Apple regarding Mac OS X 10.7 Lion, the next major version of the operating system which the company plans to ship this summer. If rumors are to be believed, the new iOS-inspired Lion could soon be seeding to developers, complete with an overhaul of the user interface.
When Apple demoed Lion, the next major version of Mac OS X, at a press event in October, we all oohed and ahhed over the first four features Steve Jobs and Co. told us about. The Mac App Store, Mission Control, Launch Pad, and full-screen application views all look very cool--so cool that we got a little bummed that we’d have to wait until Lion’s launch in summer 2011 to get them on our Macs. But with just a few application add-ons, you can give your current install of Snow Leopard some of the same teeth as Lion.
