After all the waiting, all the speculation, and all the curiosity, there I was, finally downloading Lion. Little did I know, once I installed it, I was in for some very unexpected surprises. For days my workflow was impeded by seemingly arbitrary changes. So sure, while Lion is an update designed to be evolutionary rather than revolutionary, it’ll require some serious getting used to. After a few days of learning the system, my computer was a new beast.
Well, that was fast -- mere hours after announcing that OS X Lion would launch on Wednesday, Apple has pulled the trigger right at 8:30am EST as rumored. That’s right, get your wallet ready, because the big cat is ready and waiting for you!
We know, we know: You’re sick of waiting for OS X Lion and tired of hearing false rumors about its imminent arrival. But bear with us, because Wednesday is looking like a likely day for its release, if rumors of some new visual merchandising at Apple retail stores around the world are to believed.
It's well known by now that Lion is probably going to be due out anytime now, what with Apple announcing a July release and all, and given we're starting to run out of July. A new report out today seemed to further solidify rumors that the next Mac operating system could be released this week, as Apple Retail Stores have now received Gold Master copies of OS X Lion.
The rumor mill seemed certain that Apple was going to release OS X Lion (along with new MacBook Air models) on Thursday, July 14 that many people felt disappointment, anger or outright betrayal -- despite the fact the company never confirmed the rumor in the first place.
We all know that OS X Lion is due in July, and with more than a quarter of the month already behind us, speculation continues to swirl as to exactly when Apple will pull the trigger on the big cat -- which is looking like next week, according to a variety of leaked retail plans.
When Steve Jobs announced that Mac OS X Lion would be hitting the App Store in July, he wasn't kidding: Apple has today released a Gold Master (GM) of Lion to developers, which is the final step before product release.
The distant roar of the Lion is getting louder, that’s for sure -- but no one outside of Apple really knows for sure when the beast will finally be uncaged, only sometime in July. While everyone plays the guessing game, at least one rumor suggests it could be less than a week away.
June is coming to a close, and that can mean only one thing: Lion is about to be uncaged! We all know that OS X Lion will be available in July exclusively from the Mac App Store for a mere $29.99 -- but did you also know Apple will have OS X Lion Server available at the same time as a paid add-on?
If you believe the word on the street, Apple has a new Mac Pro and Mac mini just chilling by the pool on the Cupertino campus, waiting to be unleashed shortly after Mac OS X Lion gets uncaged in July. That got us thinking: What would we like to see from a new Mac mini, anyway?
