Here it is folks, release day, well it was 20 minuts before i started writing this post, the new Lion operating system for Apple Macs is out for download on the app store, and to be honest, i’m not impressed. I mean yeah safari is apparently sandboxed now to help prevent nasties sneaking into the OS, and you can encrypt the entire disc with the new Vault feature, but the new gesture additions have overwitten the old, and that’s just peeved me off. 4 finger swipe up should show the desktop, but instead now its a thumb and three finger expand, thats just pants, it doesnt work 2/3 goes for me. Plus i liked it the old way and it won’t let me configure it that way. Apox on you Apple. Also pixelmator has just updated and no longer works, used time machine to get an older version and it only part works, the selection box was completely no where near the cursor.
In other news, the brand spanking new MacBook Air is out too, 1.6Ghz i5 for the 11 inch book with 64GB or 128GB ssd, or the 13 inch has either 1.7 i5, or a 1.8 i7 all dual core. a choice of 128GB or 256GB ssd. All bu the 64GB ssd drive version has 4GB ram, the 64GB ssd verison only has 2. All have the intel HD3000 graphics that are part of the sandy bridge architecture.
