Apple As widely anticipated, Apple's new major OSX release is available this morning, download-only, for $29.99 USD in the Mac App Store. There's a quick copy and paste job of the feature list after the jump. Also as expected, there's a new, Sandy Bridge-based Macbook Air. Update: A reader pointed out John Siracusa's Lion review at Ars.

RE: Shrinks a partition

Sounds fine, until you realise that resizing partitions only has a 99% success rate. Statistically speaking, one in every hundred Lion upgraders is going to lose all their data.

I dunno - it never caused me any great problems when I used it a while back. However, there's danger in any partition resize and everyone should have good backups anyway, especially for mobile devices!!

A good way of selling Time Machine units?

Time Capsule. I got a 2TB a short while ago after looking for a replacement wireless router/NAS (pure NAS, not one with extra "apps") and coming to the conclusion that what Apple was selling was fairly close in price to the competition. Simple install all in one box won.
