If there's one Mac utility we couldn't live without, it would probably be TextExpander, which saves us countless thousands of extra keystrokes each year. The software got a big update today, but don't go looking for it in the Mac App Store.
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.
Who are we kidding when we try to act like there was any story this week other than WWDC and the Retina Display MacBook Pro? No one, that's who. It's all we've talked about lately, the great new features coming to our Macs and our iOS devices, and how they'll be syncing together and sharing awesomesauce back and forth. So here it is in all its glory: the week that was WWDC 2012.
WWDC 2012 week is winding down, which means things should get back to normal next week ahead of the July release of OS X Mountain Lion. Then again, Google could pull a rabbit out of its hat at its own I/O developer conference coming at the end of the month, so we have that to look forward to as well. For now, let’s get a dose of tech news for this Thursday, June 14, 2012.
Long before iOS 5 introduced Notification Center, The Growl Project was doing something similar on the computer. Now that Notification Center is making the leap to the desktop with OS X Mountain Lion, the creators of Growl are speaking out on their plans for the future.
With Apple’s announcement on Monday that OS X Mountain Lion is coming down off the… well, mountain… in July, it should come as no surprise to find that the company’s swanky Messages beta has been yanked ahead of the release.
Ever since its sneak attack back in February, we’ve only discovered further details of OS X Mountain Lion through leaks from Mac developers -- that is, until Monday, when the WWDC 2012 keynote offered up the rest of the details, including a price and rough release date.
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.
The iOS 6 banners went up in Moscone West on Friday afternoon, confirming that Apple will, at the very least, preview the next version of its mobile operating system to developers when WWDC 2012 kicks off today -- and you’ll probably be able to download it shortly thereafter.
