/// OS X Lion Roars Into Town

July 20, 2011  |  All Things Digital

Mac OS X 10.7 Lion, the latest iteration of Apple’s operating system, debuted this morning, just as CFO Peter Oppenheimer said it would during the company’s third quarter earnings call Tuesday. Unlike previous OS upgrades, Lion is available exclusively as a $29.99 download from the Mac App Store. It brings some 250 new features to OS X, among them a number culled from iOS and intended to bring the best of Apple’s mobile OS to the desktop. Also included: a completely new version of Mail, AirDrop — a peer-to-peer Wi-Fi-based network for document sharing, and Resume, a feature which works system wide to remember what app you were using and what you were doing with it. You’ll find more details and a thorough review from Walt here .
