Apple releases Mac OS X Lion developer preview via the Mac App Store

Apple's on a charge today and has just released the Mac OS X Lion developer preview via the Mac App Store. The good news is it's full of fancy new features, including Launchpad, an app launcher that displays all of your Mac apps in one easy to use screen; Mission Control, a unification of Expose, Dashboard, Spaces, and full screen apps; and some new multi-touch gestures. The bad news is that...

FaceTime hits the Mac App Store for 99c

Apple has just released FaceTime for OS X onto the Mac App Store. The app will take advantage of the 'built-in FaceTime HD camera' or any other iSight-equipped Intel Mac, to bring you Mac-to-Mac and Mac-to-iPhone 4 (or latest generation iPod touch) video calling over Wi-Fi. It supports up to 720p video for those soon to be released Macs sporting fancy new FaceTime HD cameras, or standard VGA...

Windows 7 SP1 and Windows Server 2008 R2 SP1 released

We heard it was coming, and as foretold, Windows 7 SP1 was released yesterday for download via Windows Update or direct from Microsoft. Appearing in beta form last year, it's not the smallest of updates, weighing in at up to just under 2GB in size for the full dual disc image, but SP1 brings with it a slew of patches, fixes, and updates, all rolled into one neat and tidy package. While Windows...

Twitter for Mac -- right-click tweet from anywhere in OS X

Twitter for Mac, aka Tweetie 2, has seen quite a lot of praise since its birth unto the Mac App Store. It takes a slick, minimalist approach to the Twitter client paradigm, something other big players like Tweetdeck eschew for greater on-screen functionality. So it comes as no real surprise that it took a couple of weeks, for perhaps one of the most useful features of Twitter for Mac, to actually...

FluffyApp hits 0.9.6, gains proper installer and SparkleDotNet auto-update

FluffyApp, the Cloud app client for Windows, has finally gone and gotten itself a proper installer thanks to a 0.9.6 update. No longer will you have to manually extract the program to a directory of your choosing. But that's not all -- auto-update has been snuck in courtesy of SparkleDotNet integration, which will now take care of program updates for you. Developer Richard Wang has even managed...

Adobe says Flash performance on Mac to rival Windows in Flash 10.1

I almost (not quite, but almost) feel bad for Adobe right now. Apple has been unceremoniously dumping on Flash in a big way since the iPad announcement, and all Adobe can do is claim they don't ship known-buggy Flash releases and announce how much better Flash will perform on Macs when Flash 10.1 is released. Flash still has critical mass adoption among traditional computing devices (desktops and...

Microsoft releases Desktops, new virtual desktop manager

Microsoft's Sysinternals team has released a new, free, light weight virtual desktop manager for Windows called Desktops. Yes, Microsoft already had a virtual desktop manager called, well, Virtual Desktop Manager. But Desktops offers a few advantages. First, it's a single, tiny executable file. No installation necessary, which makes this a good candidate for carrying with you on a USB flash...
