10/24/2013, With OS X Mavericks being rolled out to the masses, there are probably still Mac users running on much older versions of Mac computers, meaning that their devices might not be eligible for an upgrade to Mavericks. What this means is that they will either have to turn to OS X Lion or OS X Mountain Lion, but unfortunately both OS X Lion and Mountain Lion have since been removed […]
09/11/2012, A while back it was noted that the upgrade to OS X Mountain Lion had decreased battery life on MacBook laptops somewhat drastically compared to when it was running on OS X Lion. As some of you guys are aware by now, Apple has released OS X 10.8.2 to developers for testing, and the good news is that according to the tests conducted, battery life has returned to OS X […]
04/19/2012, Apple has issued a statement stating that the near defunct MobileMe service which has basically been replaced with iCloud would be killed off for good on June 30th. Mac users running an OS X version older than Snow Leopard cannot use iCloud because it is not compatible. The only way for users to gain access to iCloud is to have Snow Leopard installed after which you must install OS X […]
11/11/2011, Apple’s Mac OS X Lion was launched some time in the middle of the year and was met with both praise and criticism, much like everything else in life. However it appears that in this case, the critics may have been on to something as web as publisher Chitika has released data about Mac OS X Lion which is short of troubling.
09/15/2011, Apple announced iMessage at the unveiling of iOS 5 a few months ago, and while we have still yet to catch it action (it should be arriving with the launch of iOS 5), it looks like it might be available on OS X Lion as well. A MacRumors reader recently went through the code of OS X Lion’s iChat and discovered that there are some lines of code that are […]
08/17/2011, Apple has just released the very first update for OS X Lion, four weeks after the launch of the operating system. The update which bumps Lion OS X up to version 10.7.1 comes in two versions – one for the latest MacBook Air and Mac Mini computers and another one for older machines that upgraded to the new OS. Both updates fix general bugs and issues with the operating system, […]
08/11/2011, When Mac OS X Lion was first announced, it was also mentioned that unlike the previous incarnations of the operating system, it will not be available in CD format, which meant that users who wanted to install OS X Lion will either have to download it or get it on a USB stick, which costs about double what the downloadable version costs.
08/08/2011, The digital distribution model seems to be the way to move forward for software companies, but it is always good to have a physical copy of your software somewhere, just in case something untoward happens such as a hard drive failure that takes down Lion’s recovery partition along with it. For those who live life carefully, planning each and every single step, this should come across as no worry since […]
08/08/2011, While video calls made on Skype for the Mac have always been somewhat decent (although quality is also largely dependent on your webcam and internet connection), it appears that with the latest version of Skype for Mac, users will be able to make HD quality video calls to their friends.
08/05/2011, Unlike Mac OS X Snow Leopard, Lion will not be available in disc form, which I guess is Apple’s way of trying to reduce dependency on the optical format. Instead users will be given the choice of either downloading OS X Lion from the Mac App Store for $29, or they will have the option of purchasing it on a USB flash drive which will cost them $69.
08/04/2011, If you have made the jump to the latest OS X Lion version of the operating system without forking out far more than what it is worth, and are interested in running old school Windows operating systems such as the venerable Windows XP and Windows Vista thanks to Boot Camp, then you are in for an unpleasant surprise. Either operating systems will not run in Boot Camp in OS X […]
08/01/2011, How would you feel if you purchased a $100-plus operating system only to realize that you were overcharged, to the tune of $4,000 thereabouts? Surely you would be hopping mad, and even more so when the software company or electronic merchant gets into a dispute over who should make the refund. Good news for folks who got more than what they bargained for when they purchased the Mac OS X […]
07/28/2011, If you have recently installed Mac OS X Lion on your computer, you might have been slightly pleased with the automatic login which shaves off a couple of seconds between turning on your computer and getting down to business. As convenient as that feature may be, it turns out that the feature could very well leave your passwords ripe for the picking.
07/28/2011, Purchasing your operating system online is a novel idea, as there aren’t any physical discs for you to contend with, and neither do you need to worry about impacting the earth further with more paper printed, packaging, plastics, and having it shipped to your doorstep. Unfortunately, it seems that the Mac OS X Lion’s downloading process has hit a snafu as John Christman claims to have been charged a grand […]
