Hot News and Rumors for July 1, 2011

Fresh Hot Apple Rumors and News

1. Apple has released a Golden Master of 10.7 to Developers. This should indicate that Apple will release the consumer client and server versions of Lion soon.

Of course, "soon" is a total weasel word. The release of Lion could come from now to 11:59 PM on July 31st. But we hope and pray that it means sooner. Even those of us planning to wait until our next tax refund to buy a new Mac with Lion installed.

2. Adobe moves in on a perceived opportunity as controversy surrounds Final Pro X. "Want to switch? Here's a 50% savings off" It is the editorial position of MacValley that fierce competition between Adobe and Apple over non-linear video editing software…is a good thing. Better to have the marketing departments slug it out than bring out the lawyers.

3. The MacBook is in short supply. Could this mean…REFRESH IS AT HAND!?

4. The HP WebOS based TouchPad is here. Finally. Is it better than all the Android tablets? How does it compare to the iPad 2? See for a comprehensive review of all the available tablets. You want to go here.

5. The new Thunderbolt interface has finally had some peripherals released. They're Awesome!. Check out Macworld's review of a hyperspeed, and hyperpricy, RAID hard drive array.

In two years, we'll see Thunderbolt hard drives with cables at Apple Store for $100. I hope.

6. Well, I'm presenting at MacValley at the Wilkinson Senior Center on Wednesday, July 6th. Got any questions? E-mail me!
