Next in line for the Sandy Bridge refresh after the 2011 MacBook Pros is Apple’s MacBook Air family.
The new version of Apple’s Mac operating system, OS X 10.7 or simply called “Lion” is now available for purchase. Unlike previous releases by Apple, OS X Lion will only be available for download via Apple’s very own Mac App Store for $29.99 (the standard price of Apple’s OS X releases).
Some of the bundled software have been given very welcome overhauls like iCal, Mail and even Finder that make upgrading from Snow Leopard well worth the $29.99 price tag.
More information on Lion can be found on the official Apple site.
For in depth reviews of Lion, you may want to check out the following links:
Named in honor of the composer and pianist George Gershwin, Auttomatic has released WordPress Version 3.2 “Gershwin”, bringing with it the usual slew of bugfixes, redesign and optimization of the WordPress framework.
The focus of 3.2 is making WordPress faster and lighter thus we have a refreshed dashboard design that seems to fit the bill. The new admin area feels much more streamlined if but spartan (which is a good thing).

While everyone’s attention was trained on any upcoming Windows Phone 7-powered Nokia smartphone, the Finland-based company has released the Nokia N9 Smartphone.
The N9 is powered by the latest build of Meego, yep, the Linux distribution that Nokia has officially discontinued in the wake of the Microsoft acquisition.
Nokia calls the N9, the first-ever pure touch smartphone and from the get go this new phone really doesn’t sport any front-facing buttons. You unlock the phone by just double-tapping the screen.
Thankfully, a workaround has been found that would bypass the usual IP check and use any credit card information you have inputted into your account. If you’re already thinking ahead, yes, dummy information does work. The downside is that you’ll only have access to free apps, if you want the paid applications, you need to go through the official Android Market. But hey, free apps!
Important: DO NOT USE your current email address tied to Amazon because entering fake information is grounds to have your account suspended.
To Download free Apps from the Android Amazon AppStore you need to:
1. Register for an e-mail address or use a throw-away account. DO NOT under any circumstance, use your valid account.
2. Go to Fake name generator (which will generate a fake but valid identity) and enter the required information for your Amazon account (name, address, phone number, and credit card number).
3. Download the Amazon App Store apk to your phone. To install the appstore, make sure Unknown Sources is ticked in the Application Settings of your phone.
4. Browse the Amazon App Store from your phone and download your free app!
I have been spending more or less year and a half on OS X and yet I’m still forgetting what the keyboard symbols mean (some of them anyway). If you’re like me, here’s a simple guide to these confusing keyboard symbols on OS X.
I was excited when I first heard that LG’s new midrange android phone, the LG P970 Optimus Black was coming to the Philippines. LG failed me when I tried to procure the device as they’re currently having the Optimus Sale and touting the Dual Core Optimus 2x instead of the unit I wanted which, if the timeline of the sale is to be followed, will be first available today. I got one off the gray market in less than 3 hours… (heh).
