Mac OS X Earlier this week, Apple released the first developer preview of Mac OS X 10.7 Lion. At the same time, Apple listed a number of new features we hadn't yet heard about, which are quite interesting. There are two themes: bringing iOS to Mac OS X, and adding features other operating systems have had for ages - except in such a way that you can actually use them. Update: Fixed that scrolling thing. It's the other way around of course.

I wonder if saving files every hour isn't a bit of overkill, though. Especially taking into account the fact that SSD lives are measured in writes.

Word autosaves every 10 minutes. However, the extra versions Apple are proposing aren't likely to cause a whole lot of extra wear on SSDs - most writes aren't simple user data anymore. A single 100Mb update balances 1,000 hours of editing a 100Kb word document, for example.
