OS X Lion Arrives Tomorrow- Here’s How To Upgrade

For those of you who have been patiently waiting for OS X Lion, wait no more, the operating system will be arrive tomorrow for Mac users nationwide. But before you go crazy and install the software, there are a few precautionary measures you should take to protect your data.

First thing you want to check is to see if your Mac model was made in the middle of 2006. This is because PowerPC and single core Intel processors were fueling the macs until this time period, and OS X Lion won’t run on either.

250 Features In OS X Lion, All For $30

Here’s the moment you’ve all been waiting for, the low-down on Apple’s new OS X Lion. For $30, you can grab the latest version of the Apple desktop and/or laptop software for your Apple machine.

OS X comes with over 250 new features and 3,000 new APIs. Apple claims that users will see iPad influence in ‘many places’. A cool new feature that OS X has is the ability to have any application run in full screen. An app called Mission Control allows you to easily see all your open apps to get a good idea of what you’re working with.

Major Take-Aways From WWDC 2011

Apple’s CEO announced today a new service called iCloud at Apple’s WorldWide Developer Conference 2011. The service allows Apple product owners to store both documents and music in the cloud (on the Internet) rather than on a physical computer, hard drive, or mobile phone.

With the iCloud, users will be able to have greater access to content without having to max out their portable media devices. The iCloud also will offer the convenience of synchronizing automatically with all of the user’s Apple devices (iPhone, iPads, and Mac computers), allowing users to access docs, apps, calendars, and e-mails from any location without having to worry to remember to hit the Sync Button on their computer. Here are some key highlights:

Genuine iPhone iOS5 Image?

TechCrunch has posted a photo (top) of the home screen of an iPhone running iOS 5 which will officially launch later today at the WWDC keynote address in San Francisco. TechCrunch didn’t report the original source of the image and claim that it is possible it is another fake, but made some interesting points on why it might be real.

TechCrunch first directs our attention to the European version of the weather app, denoting the temperature in Celsius rather than Fahrenheit. The next detail is the camera app being all black.

Steve Jobs Will Introduce iCloud And iOS5 @ WWDC 2011

Apple has officially announced that Steve Jobs will introduce the iCloud service, as well as iOS 5 during the WWDC keynote address on June 6th, at 10AM. The computer giant will also reveal the next generation OS X, Lion software, as well. WWDC stands for WorldWide Developer Conference and will feature over one hundred tech sessions, each presented by Apple engineers.

Apple fanatics, tech enthusiasts, and journalists will all get a taste of what Apple has to offer in the coming years, at least on the software front.

iPhone 4S Coming This Year, iPhone 5 Due Next Year?

A rumor has been circulating around the Internet today, and don’t worry it’s not one of those ‘vicious’ types. The rumor is that the next-generation iPhone will contain curved glass. According to industry sources, Apple has purchased between 200 and 300 glass cutting machines for the production of the curved covers.

Since glass cutting machines are typically expensive, we can bet that Apple is going to use this to give the iPhone a fresh new look.

Rumor: iPhone 5 Release Date

We’ve heard the many rumors circulating around in regards to the iPhone 5. Many originally claimed that the iPhone 5 would debut at the WWDC 2011 until we heard that the worldwide developers conference would focus on software rather than hardware. Yesterday, a vague date of November, 2011 was given from an employee working at his local store.

A guy by the name of Shazna gave a clearer date today of November 21st, 2011 as the release date in the United Kingdom which would make sense given that this would be plenty of time for the iPhone 5 to be constructed.

OS X Lion Features “Find My Mac”

While the Apple Worldwide Developer Conference is only a month away, we are learning more about what might constitute the new OS X Lion. According to 9to5Mac, the new OS will feature a “Find my Mac” tool that works very similar to the “Find my iPhone”, exclusively for MobileMe. There will also be Find My Mac messenger, and we have no idea what this could be.

Some speculate that it is a way for Mac’s Finder to instant message the Mac owner, but we’re not too sure how it works or how effective the applicaiton will be.
