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.

Ah, another person who sees in black-and-white.

It's a gradient. A relative term.

He's doing awful, malicious, power-hungry things.

Sounds evil to me.

"oh, but he's not as evil as mass murderers!"
Yeah, well arguably neither are child abusers, but it's not a meaningful argument.

Evil = bad, but it's not a "worst or best" situation.

Jeez... If you actually think this way, stop thinking. Seriously.
If you don't actually think that way, stop being spiteful and trolling.


Furthermore, you right-wing <insert insult>, lobbyists (read: legalised bribery) and armies of crooked lawyers who think of it as a game are forcing that 'invisible' (not hard to see what's moving it: rich people doing their best to stay that way) hand of the market.
It's not a product, any more. It's a collection of trivial concepts, patented. "THIS REMINDS ME OF SOMETHING SOMEONE WHO WORKED FOR US THOUGHT OF ONCE!!! SICK THE LAWYERS!!!" Never mind the fact that all the ideas had been implemented years ago. They just patented "encrypted off-site backup, with an icon on your desktop".
Whether or not I buy it, they're doing their best to bend me, you, and every other person who ever uses a computer over.
