An Overview of Automator Improvements In Lion





automator

Automator, the set of automation tools that allows users to create workflows, services or apps has received interesting improvements in Lion. Some of such improvements allow eliminating the need for third-party software. The Option key for example has got new usage in Lion. Now it can reverse the entire Resume system, show the Library in the Finder’s menubar, or change the Finder’s “Arrange By” feature to “Sort By”. Though Lion is the most powerful and feature-rich version of OS X to date, there are still much to be done in Lion.

Apple will pay $800,000 in rent annually and in ten years the rent will go up to a million dollars annually.

Apple Keyboards Receive (Very) Minor Detail Changes



Keyboard-Tweaks

Alongside release of Mac OS X Lion and new MacBook Airs, Apple introduced slightly changed keyboards. The main change is that Apple has replaced now the the Dashboard key (located on the F4) with a Launchpad key. The other one is that the icon of the Exposé button (located on the F3) key that is now used for Mission Control in Lion was a little bit changed. Such changes are now implemented only in wired keyboard, but we presume they will soon make their way to the Apple wireless keyboard and keyboards with purchased iMac’s and Mac Pros. Unfortunately, this time Apple has not implemented the rumored backlit keys as well as significant design changes.

Apple testing Mac OS X 10.7.2 alongside iCloud for Lion beta 5



icloud

Apple is requiring developers to start testing iCloud beta 5 and install Mac OS X 10.7.2 build 11C26 for that purpose, but the company has not provided its developers with any information on test builds of Mac OS X 10.7.1 yet.

"You must install OS X Lion 10.7.2 in order to use iCloud for OS X Lion beta 5," Apple reportedly told developers. "This pre-release version of OS X Lion is being provided solely for testing iCloud."

People familiar with the Apple’s plans believe that Apple will initiate a separate beta test for Mac OS X 10.7.1 in the coming days or weeks. Moreover, developers, who have installed Mac OS X 10.7.2 and iCloud beta 5 note changes in Lion's "Mail, Contacts & Calendars" control panel and iCloud management interface that provides tools for managing storage, backups, and purchasing additional storage and lets users choose which forms of data they'd like synced to the cloud.
