I've seen a few articles about upgrading to Lion but most leave out the most important steps. Two steps that you should really do before any software update. In fact even when or if you need to update to the latest Snow Leopard (10.6.8) you should do these first.
Recently I read one of these predictive articles that industry pundits love to make. Usually they are the kind of article you can reread in five years and have a good laugh. The headline read iPad casts shadow on MacBook and of course I got sucked into reading it.

So far only AT&T offers an app which will do this and wants to charge an extra $9 a month for owning the app but I am hopeful the situation will improve.
Obama said that "We have a lot of work to do to get our country back on track", but perhaps no one expected the spanish inquisition? Or the nazi brown shirts?
Yet this is the inevitable result of the kind of mentality we have in the U.S. The kind of thinking that can get us into a pre-emptive war as revenge against a completely different enemy just because they are also arabic and muslim.
