This week Apple gave the world an early look at their forthcoming operating system, and tech journalists got their first peek at some of the concepts driving development of Apple's next desktop operating system, dubbed Mac OS X Lion.

Could the company be preparing to bring one of the most frequently demanded features, a fully functional Mac OS, to the iPad?


Our brief glimpse of Mac OS X 10.7 Lion told us one thing: Apple is attempting to bridge the gap between their mobile platform, iOS, and their Mac operating system, Mac OS X. When it arrives next year, Mac OS X 10.7 will bring new several staple features of iOS 4 to Apple's Mac computers, specifically Launchpad, an icon-focused interface that arranges all of your available apps, complete with app folders, just as they would appear on your iPhone, iPod touch, or iPad, on your Mac desktop. Unlike a full iOS interface, however, Mac OS X 10.7 Lion makes the system toggleable, and users will still have access to the dock, desktop, and menus of a full Mac OS.

Furthermore, apps designed for Mac OS X 10.7 will feature full screen modes that occupy your entire desktop or laptop screen, much like an iPad app, and will support trackpad gesture controls that could easily be applied to a touchscreen interface.

Primary among those drivers, as Apple chief executive Steve Jobs announced, was bringing to Lion what Apple had learned from its experience with the successful iPad tablet. Like the iPad, Lion will run apps from a similar central app store. A new Launchpad for apps and a Mission Control feature will combine the talents of Spaces, Exposé, and Dashboard.

Jobs announced that Lion would emerge in the summer of 2011, but the Mac App Store will open within 90 days. Another anticipated Mac OS feature is coming along much sooner: Facetime for Mac, which will let Mac users make video calls with iPhone 4 and iPod touch users. It is available now. So it's not part of Lion, but coming already for Snow Leopard.
Multitouch support was another much-predicted feature for Lion, but Jobs was careful to state that it wouldn't be in the form the pundits expected. Apple researchers determined that multitouch doesn't work on vertical screens, because of arm fatigue. Instead, Lion's multitouch support will be for larger trackpads. If you want multitouch on an actual screen, you'll have to get an iPad.
Over 7 billion iPhone, iPad, and iPod touch apps have been downloaded from the Apple App store, and then the ipad or ipod touch ursers transfer music from ipad to mac , Jobs noted that there will still be places other than the store to get Mac apps. Installation will be as easy as it is on the iPhone, and developers will get the same 70 percent of revenue on paid apps.
"We think bringing some of these things back from iPad to Mac, with some fresh new things like Mission Control, will really delight Mac users," Jobs said. With all the attention bestowed on the iPad and iPhone, it's about time Mac users get to enjoy some of the delight. This was just a first glimpse, but it's promising. We'll be there when it debuts.

colt Rodeo V6 3000i. What is the consumption?


Fuel consumption figures usually don't mean very much as there are lots of variables affecting consumption in the real world.

The EEC force manufacturers to state consumption figures for cars sold in Europe. One or two of those are results from constant speed tests but the third is called the urban cycle which is a realistic real-world figure but don't forget the Imperial gallon is bigger than the US gallon so it is probably better to stick to litres.

Few motoring journalists have a vehicle long enough to produce useful consumption figures and simply recycle each other's information. A few journalists test a car for a week or longer and do produce their own useful figures.

When searching for reliable information it is important to know what sort of driving, the type of country, the ambient temperature and so forth as hot or cold weather can affect consumption significantly so any figures you find are fairly useless without qualifying information.

A freind gave me a compaq evo d300v desk top windows xp professional. How do I do factory recovery? I was told f11 but so far I was able to f8 and open windows advance options menue.


Best advice here is to get the windows 7 operating system as windows XP is no longer supported by Microsoft and updates are no longer forthcoming
a factory recover may require a re-entry of the registration code so you will need to get that from your friend..

What are the requirements to download Apple Mountain Lion OSX?


You must have the following computer to download Mountain Lion:

iMac (Mid 2007 or newer)
MacBook (Late 2008 Aluminum, or Early 2009 or newer)
MacBook Pro (Mid/Late 2007 or newer)
MacBook Air (Late 2008 or newer)
Mac mini (Early 2009 or newer)
Mac Pro (Early 2008 or newer)
Xserve (Early 2009)

Once that is done, you must be updated to the most recent version of either Snow Leopard or Lion. If you don't have either of these operating systems (which is highly unlikely considering the other computers should have them, but I digress) then you will need to get them before Mountain Lion.

After that, go to the Apple Store and download Mountain Lion!
