Mac OS X Lion?

I subscribe to Google Alerts on Apple stuff using Google Reader. Yesterday, I learnt that Apple has sent out invitations to an event on October 20th that said "Back to the Mac". The invitation had a hidden picture of a lion indicating that Apple might be coming out with a new version of its Operating System.



This is expected to be a major upgrade from the previous version, Snow Leopard which had mainly performance enhancements. People are speculating that Apple might eventually merge their iOS with Mac OS X and this might be the last version of the desktop OS.

Well, with Apple, you can never be sure. The entire world expects something and then Apple comes out with something totally unexpected.

I am going to be keenly awaiting the October 20th announcement. I have been using a Mac for years now and am really excited to see what Apple has in store for us! They have revolutionized the phone and the tablet in the last few months. Let's hope they have something equally great for the desktop now.

Let us see what the Lion has in store for us. Not long now.

It is time that Apple started taking India seriously. It is much, much cheaper to buy Macbooks and iMacs in the US as compared to India, and they do not sell the iPad or iPhone 4 here.

They take years to service a fault and at prices that are atrocious. Compare this with the service you get at the iStore in NY. Prompt, cheap and replace the gadget if it needs opening up kind of service.
