The Lion Cub is released, along with new Macbook Pros
Today, Apple released 2 Mac announcements.
1: Mac OS 10.7, a.k.a. Lion, had a developers release (I call it a lion cub, but maybe I should save that for the alpha and beta, oh well). This means that those non-Apple developers will begin to make their programs, like Firefox, Microsoft Office, Dropbox, etc., for the new version.
Lion has a lot of great features going for it including: Full screen apps, a new control module (imagine expose and spaces combined) called Launchpad, the new version of Mail, autosave has been built in to Mac, Resume (restarting your Mac will bring up everything where you left off, and more.

2: The other big news today was the announcement of the new Macbook Pros. Here are the big changes:
-All Macbook Pros are getting HD webcams, as well as the Facetime app built in, so you can make video calls between your Mac and an iPhone 4+, iPod Touch, and/or Mac (with Facetime built in).
-All MB Pros are also getting the new Intel Sandy Bridge chipset, which means faster speeds, more power, and some dedicated graphic power.
-13 inch MB Pros are getting getting the Intel i5 and i7 (faster and more powerful), but no dedicated graphics card by Nvidia or AMD (the Intel chips have it built in).
-15 & 17 inch MB Pros are getting AMD Radeon graphics cards, rather than Nvidia ones (personally I prefer Nvidia, but that’s just me. The new cards are still pretty sweet).
Go to the Apple Website HERE for more details.
I’m still working on the videos here. They’ll be up eventually.
