Apple has a new TV ad with the iPad showing how the iPad is changing the way we do things. Just like the “If you asked” Tv ad.
We’ll never stop sharing our memories… or getting lost in a good book. We’ll always cook for our favorite team. We’ll still go to meetings, make home movies, and learn things. But how we do all this will never be the same.
Also at the end of the ad as a quick little promotion for the new Mac OS X you notice the Alphabet fun app the kid in the video is using one of the words is LION. Good timing and good little promotion huh?
Apple has made Xcode 4.1 free in the Mac App Store and on the Official Developer site. Xcode has been free with Mac OS X for many years now and Apple mysteriously made it $5.00 for all the non-develpers and now it is back to being free which doesn’t affect developers at all but for everyone else this is a great way to make your Lion apps! Go get Xcode from the Mac App Store or the Developer Connection.
Well the day has finally come. The the day where your internet connection is going to go insane. The day Lion is available to download from the Mac App Store. Yes Apple has released the new OS today like they said they would at a giant 3.5GB download size. It is going to take me a few hours or days to download Lion but when it is done soon after I promise a video review of the features and what you can do with the newest OS. To download Lion just launch the Mac App Store and click the Lion banner and then buy, download, and install.
Well today seems to be a big day for Apple and I regret not waking up a little earlier. Well it seems Apple has released the new Mac Minis and MacBook Airs. It seems they didn’t release the New Mac pro or MacBook as we thought. The new MacBook air features Intel i5 and i7 processors, a thunderbolt port, and a backlit keyboard. The new Mac Mini has an i5 and i7 processor, a thunderbolt port, and it looks like to prove downloading is the future Apple has stripped it of the DVD port like when the MacBook Air was first introduced.
If you are planning to migrate from a Mac using Snow Leopard to a Mac using Lion you will need to get this update. Here are the release notes.
This update addresses an issue with the Migration Assistant application in Mac OS X Snow Leopard that prevents transfer of your personal data, settings, and compatible applications running Mac OS X show Leopard to a new mac running Mac OS X Lion.
This doesn’t matter if you are just going to be installing Lion on a new Mac though. It is only important if you are going to be transfering information from a Snow Leopard computer to a Lion computer. Seems we are getting ready for launch.
Yup that’s right. Lion has been officially confirmed by Apple that it is coming no later than tomorrow. The man who announced this was Peter Oppenheimer. So get your macs ready to update and I will have a post up later today but CultOfMac has one that’s great as well you can check out here.
