yea - OSX Lion is all downloaded and I can set it up - Wonder if I should wait until the morning - how long will it take to do its stuff?
Added more to the article I started yesterday for the http://amazing-ipad.com web site. I have it edited & not to add some pics in MarsEdit
Lots to download today. Updates to various apps and also Lion. A few podcasts already in to put into the iPod Touch.

Wednesday, July 20, 2011

Back finished - now downloading Lion - Going to take a while on this bloody slow connection. Will put on a USB drive when I have it
Also I got the hard drive 2TB SATA that I could slot into the IcyBox toaster. Making a bootable back up for being ready for OSX Lion
I got my Apple Battery Charger in the post today & I like it - small neat and the best charger I found - going by the specs.
Like the look of the new Mac Minis - Not sure if I would get on though - with adding bits I could be better off with an iMac

Monday, July 18, 2011

Downloading the 4.3.4 update for the iPad. I wonder if I can get it for the iPod Touch too, The one I have is stuck on 4.2.1 for now
Hurray - day off and I have been able to do some writing. 3 articles done so far. I will get some more done after lunch

Thursday, July 14, 2011

Ha ! All the rumour-mongers got it wrong about Lion coming out on the 14th. That'll teach ya...Suppose you will predict another date now..
Bit sick of all the rumour mongering by the Apple fan boys - be happy with what you have until a new thing comes out. It's coming whatever !

Monday, July 11, 2011

Three articles written this morning - Enjoying my day off so far - Flamin hot out - could be a day for a dip in the sea too
Just got the Hard Drive toaster IcyBox - Need some drives to put in it. It does eSATA and USB Will there be a thunderbolt to eSata connecter

I predict that Apple will put in a GPS receiver into the iPad 3. It only makes sense to have it in there in the 3G model.
Took the car to be ITV tested and walked the dog back home through the forest and now I am writing on Squidoo about OSX Lion
