  • Cloud Files Found in OS X Lion, Could Be The Evolution of iDisk


    9to5 Mac has just stated that they've found some interesting new icons in Mac OS X Lion that may reveal a part of Apple's new plan for MobileMe, which is currently MIA.

    There seems to be a folder and sidebar icon which looks specifically designed for cloud documents. This would obviously be a place for a user to store whatever documents they choose and store them on the cloud, similar to what MobileMe's iDisk currently does. This however, seems to be a bit more like popular service Dropbox, as there is the file icon, along with the sidebar shortcut in finder. The files are labeled "MobileDocumentsFolder.icns, Mobile Documents 32.png and SidebarMobileDocumentsFolder.icns."

    This seems like an elegant evolution from the current iDisk logos. It's possible that this is simply could be a re-naming of the iDisk feature, but we suspect there's something more to this. We may have to wait until closer to this summer to find out, but I would be surprised if we got some more information on this as soon as the March 2nd event, where Apple will introduce the next generation iPad.

      Hopefully Lion will run on our old systems unlike Snow - I have to force it into 32x in order for it to run smoothly. The 64x mode was too labor intensive on my puny little 1.6 GHz Intel Core 2 Duo + 2 GB 667 MHz DDR2 SDRAM. Honestly... You really need at least 4GB of RAM in order to use the computer freely

      - ie running: Finder, Mail, Safari, iTunes, Gimp2, Bowtie, and MS word at the same time LOL!

      I'm really hoping they do free file backup! We pay big bucks for our iMacs and MacBooks, we should get some basic file features back.

      I didnt understand a damn thing you just said.

      I think it was about how you hate your MacBook air and it's performance. You should of done a little research before you spent $1700. The MacBook air isn't for power performance, it's for portability. It performs very well for what it was designed to do. Don't complain about the price, it's an Apple the have an elite price tag for the elite person. Lol. Just kidding apple stuff always cost more then others but it's worth it to me because all my macs have outlasted all my friends PCs. I still have a functioning centris 610 that I have never had to repair and I have had it sence it was brand new. (Feb 1993). IMO Apple superior hardware is worth the premium price.
