We're now halfway through July, so it should be just a matter of time before Apple unleashes OS X Mountain Lion. We have no idea exactly when it will arrive in the next 16 days, but at least one website is placing bets on Wednesday, July 25.
Although we haven't noticed this problem on our own MacBook Pro with Retina Display, InDesign users have been filling up Adobe's online forum with crashing problems since the Ivy Bridge-era notebooks were released in mid-June.
While you're tapping your fingers in anticipation waiting for OS X Mountain Lion to arrive this month, you might want to consult Apple's upgrade page again -- it's been updated and a few otherwise capable 64-bit models appear to left hanging.
When it comes to the Mac, there’s no Siri, but there is built-in speech capability, which is configured and activated in the Speech System Preferences pane. Primarily, speech on the Mac is designed for disabled users, but we’ve argued in the past that well-designed accessibility functions are beneficial to everyone, and we reckon that’s the case here. We explore this System Preferences pane and show how anyone can potentially improve their OS X experience by talking to their Mac and having it talk back to them--and now through a user-definable accent, no less!
Only a day or so after reports surfaced that Apple was quietly slipping a beta version of OS X Lion 10.7.5 into the hands of select developers, Cupertino has now pushed the update to all registered developers on Tuesday.
We know, you're all sitting by the internet waiting to see what Microsoft will be announcing tonight. But for those who aren't (or simply don't care), we're back with our usual generous helping of tech news for this post-WWDC 2012 week. It's a fairly lazy day for tech news, but that doesn't mean that you'll have to dig far to read everything happening on this Monday, June 18, 2012.
Are you ready for the big cat to come down off the mountain and roar onto your Mac? Apple has finalized a July release for OS X Mountain Lion, with developers receiving a gold master of the 10.8 release today.
Veteran Mac users may still think of Microsoft as the bad guy over that whole “Mac vs. Windows” thing, but never let it be said the folks in Redmond don’t listen to us. Last month’s Mac release of SkyDrive was plagued with one really annoying fault that the company has fixed in an update rolling out now.
Memorial Day Weekend is chock full of activities. And sales! Yes, who doesn't love an excuse for a good App Store blowout. There's plenty to choose from so we grabbed a little here, a little there, a lot like your plate at a picnic lunch. Dig in and enjoy.
It’s that time again, kiddies -- Apple has fired up the Software Update factory once again and the assembly line is busy pushing OS X Lion 10.7.4 onto Macs everywhere, with a little Safari 5.1.7 thrown in for good measure.
