A Sleeping OS X Lion Stirs
The iPad 2 nears! An iPad 3 is on the horizon! iPhone 5 is coming! Maybe an iPhone nano! New MacBook Pros! New iMacs! Maybe even an Apple television! Of all the Apple rumors out there right now, there's a odd lack of talk about something we know is coming ? and soon: OS X Lion. Back in October of last year, Apple gave an official sneak peek of Lion and stated that it would launch in "summer 2011". The first official day of summer is exactly 4 months away. And yet, Apple has been largely silent about the new OS since that preview four months ago. We now have the Mac App Store which we know will be a key ingredient, and likely points to some other things about the OS as well. But there has been no official update out of Apple about Lion. So where does it stand?
