If you're a fan of Apple products (like me!), you surely know that the Macintosh operating software comes with some fantastic feline names. My pal GeekSugar is at Back to the Mac today and told me all about the latest Mac OS X v10.7, named after the big cat seen below. I've gathered all the kitties featured thus far, so see if you can match their names to the pictures in this quiz.
There's no optical drive and no hard drive, but the new MBAs have flash storage (which comes in the iPhone and iPad), making them more reliable and super quiet. Both Airs come with up to 30 days of standby time, while the 13.3-inch Air has seven hours of battery life and the smaller 11.6-inch model boasts five hours.

Steve Jobs introduced Mac OS X Lion this morning, which will be bringing iOS features to the Mac.Key features include:
- Multitouch gestures — Used with new Magic mouse, trackpad, and tablets, not by touchscreens on computers.
- App Store — Seven billion apps have been downloaded from the App store, so now Apple will bring a store to the Mac. One-click downloads, free and paid apps, auto installs to your computer, auto app updates, licensed for use on all personal macs, and developers get 70 percent of the profits for their apps.
- App home screens — Called the launch pad (which looks a lot like the widgets launcher), this icon allows you to get to all of your apps with a click. Just like iOS, you can create folders and organize your launch pad for easy access.
- Full-screen apps — All of your apps can be opened up to full screen, and switching between apps, home screens, and documents can be done by "flicking" your trackpad.

Cool new maps let you see geo-tagged pics, and enhancements to the Faces feature recognizes faces even better. Additionally, you can customize books even further, add text, and move pics around with ease, then see all of your custom books in a bookshelf (just like in the iBookstore).
