    Chrome Lion Full Screen Support Is Ready To Go In Canary, Both With Tabs And Without

    Following up on our earlier coverage of Google's Chrome browser for OS X Lion, it looks like development is moving along faster than expected. Specifically, swiping gesture support has already been fully implemented (in the right direction now too), and now a proper full screen mode has hit the Canary build of the browser as well. Shortly after Lion's launch a few weeks ago, we noted the Chrome… Read More

  • The Good: Chrome Gets OS X Lion Two-Finger Gestures! The Bad: They’re Backwards.

    The Good: Chrome Gets OS X Lion Two-Finger Gestures! The Bad: They’re Backwards.

    Considering that it hasn't even been out a week yet, it shouldn't be too surprising that many users and developers are still getting used to OS X Lion. This includes Google, makers of the popular Chrome web browser. While we previously noted that a version specifically tailored for Lion was in the works, Google said that it may take a little while. But an update today already brings two key… Read More

  • The MacBook Is Dead. Long Live The (New) MacBook Air.

    The MacBook Is Dead. Long Live The (New) MacBook Air.

    "At this point, I'm thinking Apple should just replace the standard MacBook with the Air." Yes, I just quoted myself. But I have a good reason. I wrote that on October 21 of last year, after one day of playing with the just-released new MacBook Air. Today, 9 months later, Apple is listening. The MacBook is dead. Long live the MacBook Air. The fact of the matter is that this was inevitable. Read More

  • With OS X Lion, Apple Touches Upon The Next Decade Of The OS

    With OS X Lion, Apple Touches Upon The Next Decade Of The OS

    Ten years ago, I was not a Mac user. I had never owned a Mac. I thought I probably would never own a Mac. I was a Windows guy all the way. Sure, Windows Me sucked, but Windows 95 and 98 were solid. And we were on the verge of Windows XP. The Mac was something I was forced to use at school. Then, on March 24, 2001, OS X hit. It was unlike anything I had ever seen before. It was beautiful. I… Read More

  • ROAR! Apple Puts Out The Call For Devs To Submit OS X Lion Apps

    ROAR! Apple Puts Out The Call For Devs To Submit OS X Lion Apps

    A Lion is quickly approaching. OS X Lion — aka OS X 10.7. Some are saying it will hit this week. Other signs point to next week. Either way, it's coming very soon. How do we know? Apple has just put out a call to developers asking them to submit their OS X Lion apps for the Mac App Store. The email message (pasted above) notes: OS X Lion, the eighth major release of the world's most advanced… Read More

  • The Best Overlooked Numbers And Subtle Features From WWDC 2011

    The Best Overlooked Numbers And Subtle Features From WWDC 2011

    In case you weren't following our WWDC keynote coverage live earlier today, you missed — well, a lot. The event — which ran about two hours — was packed with information. Thousands of articles have already been written covering some of the bigger numbers and features. So I thought I'd highlight some of the smaller (or quickly mentioned) things you may have missed from the keynote. WarningRead More

  • Still Think The Mouse Isn't Dead?

    Still Think The Mouse Isn't Dead?

    We've been over this. But many of you felt the need to argue — passionately — about the fate of an input device we all use today: the mouse. I say it's dead. Well not dead, dead — yet. But the wheels are clearly in motion. Many disagree. And I thought it was worth bringing up again upon seeing the demo video that Microsoft put out there for Windows 8. I mean, does anyone still think the… Read More

  • On iCloud, Baby

    On iCloud, Baby

    Apple did something really odd today. Something they almost never do. They pre-announced the agenda for the keynote of one of their events, WWDC, taking place next week. Yes, they probably did this in an attempt to set expectations — read: no new iPhone coming — but in doing so, they also managed to do something even stranger: they outed a completely unreleased product. iCloud. So what is… Read More

  • Official: iOS 5, OS X Lion, and iCloud To Be Announced Next Week At WWDC

    Official: iOS 5, OS X Lion, and iCloud To Be Announced Next Week At WWDC

    There goes all the fun rumors and wild speculation. Apple just released a press release detailing what's coming next week at the company's annual Worldwide Developers Conference. I'll let that sink in for a moment. Apple pre-announced something -- iOS 5 and OS X Lion to be exact. Oh, and something called iCloud, too. It was already generally accepted that the two operating system were going to… Read More

  • The iPad Has Broken My Brain; OS X Lion Will Help Fix It

    The iPad Has Broken My Brain; OS X Lion Will Help Fix It

    This past weekend, I went on a trip and did the unthinkable — I didn't turn on my computer. Not even once. Okay, that's sort of misleading. While I didn't turn on my computer, I did use my iPad. Extensively. But I still fully expected to get the urge to turn on my computer as well. And I never did. That itself isn't that remarkable; I'm sure a lot of iPad users have experienced the same thing… Read More
