OS X Lion
Mac OS X Lion is finally released, it cost US$29.99 in the Mac App Store. I was downloading this at 11MB/s (megabytes not megabits) yesterday night! If you have a slower Internet connection, Lion will be made available on a USB thumb drive through the Apple Store (Singapore) for S$88. Mac OS X Lion is the eighth major release of Mac OS. It has more than 250 new features such as new Multi-Touch gestures, system-wide support for full screen apps, Mission Control, Mac App Store, Launchpad and a new re-designed Mail app.
It seems that Xcode 4.1 (App Store link) is free (usual US$4.99) for OS X Lion only and FaceTime is included in OS X Lion (App Store Link) (usual US$0.99).
Apple has quietly refresh Mac Mini the same time the iPhone 4 is ready for pre-order (today). The lime light has been stolen by iPhone 4 and hence there are no leaks or generated interests to the refreshed Mac Mini.
The new model brings about the aluminum unibody, adding in a SD card reader and a HDMI port. The graphics card has been upgraded to NVIDIA GeForce 320M (256MB) as well.
