New Mail.app for Mac OS Lion

New Mail.app

Yes, Mac OS Lion will be getting a new Mail Client. It even gotten a new icon, which have a metallic looks. Overview of the Mail.app seems to be very very similar to what we have seen on iPad’s mail client. They want to have a more generic looks and feel so users will feel very familiar when they use mail on iPad and Macs.

Mail.app will have a conversation view for emails. Yes, same look and feel of iPad’s mail.


Photo Booth in Lion track your face!

This is quite cool, something that we have not seen in Apple’s Lion OS intro. Now Photo booth in Lion will track your face and do on the fly effect on your photo/video! Pretty cool

This is much better than the photo booth on iPad 2. But I hope this will go to iPad 2! 🙂 Let’s wait and see.


Lines at WWDC 2011 [Video]

Guys from 9to5mac filmed the lines at WWDC 2011. Yes at this time, they are queuing over the night for WWDC. I don’t remember seeing queues outside WWDC 2010, so I’m sure developers can’t wait for iOS 5 and Lion to be out!
No confirmation from Apple what will iCloud cover, but I’m sure we see lots of syncing, not just Macs, but iOS devices.

We will be blogging live for WWDC 2011. Stay tuned with us. We also can’t wait for WWDC 2011 to come!


Steve Jobs will be at WWDC annoucing iCloud, iOS 5 and Lion on June 6

Steve Jobs announcing iCloud in WWDC 2011

Apple has just announced that their CEO, Steve Jobs will be taking the stage to talk about their new iCloud Service, iOS 5 and Mac OS Lion. Below is what they have sent to developers:

Apple® CEO Steve Jobs and a team of Apple executives will kick off the company’s annual Worldwide Developers Conference (WWDC) with a keynote address on Monday, June 6 at 10:00 a.m. At the keynote, Apple will unveil its next generation software – Lion, the eighth major release of Mac OS® X; iOS 5, the next version of Apple’s advanced mobile operating system which powers the iPad®, iPhone® and iPod touch®; and iCloud®, Apple’s upcoming cloud services offering.

Pretty packed WWDC 2011 for Apple. But why did Apple announce to the whole world about iCloud just a few days away from WWDC? Apple is always secretive and like to give us surprises. So are we going to get even more surprises from Apple?

Predication for Apple’s WWDC 2011

iCloud will be Apple’s newest cloud service, which might comprise of iTunes Cloud Streaming, iDisk(or a possible rename?), Cloud App Syncing, Monthly iTunes music Subscription. Apple has been building this massive Datacenter, which will most likely be supporting iCloud. So with such a huge cloud datacenter, it will not just be iTunes, I have a feeling it will be much more.

  • Monthly Music Subscription – Users will be able to pay a monthly fee and have music as all-you-can-listen package
  • iTunes Cloud Streaming – Users’ existing music will be automatically upload to the iTunes Cloud
  • iDisk fully integrated in Mac and iOS 5 for iPhone, iPad and iPod Touch. So files can just be transfer via iCloud without going through 3rd party apps
  • App syncing – All Apps that users purchase will be stored in the cloud, but not only that. All the save games data, information will be stored in cloud thus be able to sync up throughout all the devices sign in with the same account

Above are just some prediction, and hopefully we get even more surprises from Apple! Stay Tuned and we will be reporting about WWDC 2011.


What we might see in Apple’s WWDC2011

Apple’s World Wide Developer Conference 2011 is just round the corner. Apple for the past few WWDC has been very focus on showing and telling the developers what is up and coming for the year. But they also did not forget the consumers, and always take the chance to introduce new products.

So what will we see in this year’s WWDC?

  • iOS 5 – Yes, Finally we will have a preview of what iOS 5 will be. It might be more tabletish, having more multi-tasking features, more features to make use of the screen real estate of iPad.
  • Lion OS – Lion has been one of the main focus for the past 2 conference Apple held. This will be the final one, showing us the final product of what Lion will look like.
  • iPhone 4S – I think iPhone 4S will not ship so soon, because White iPhone 4 just launched not long ago, but who knows Apple might surprise us with a new iPhone
  • Macbook Air – MBA has been a success, and it is close to its refresh period. Thus we might see a Macbook Air with Thunderbolt and Sandy Bridge
  • Mac Pro – Apple recently killed XServe, and Mac Pro is the “replacement”. I’m thinking Apple will redesign Mac Pro to be “mountable” so as to better used in Data Center

Let’s hope we will have a exciting WWDC2011!

Mac OS Lion handles External Monitor better [video]

Mac OS Lion handle External Monitor on Macbook Pro better!

I’m not sure about how you guys think about how Mac OS Snow Leopard handles external monitor, but I feel they can really improve it. Mac OS Lion handles external monitor way cooler.

On Mac OS Lion, external monitor won’t go to sleep, if you close your Macbook’s lid, it will automatically switch the primary monitor to your external monitor, which is much cooler.
