    It's not like they're making money on it. Besides, I don't see Growl notification going away. Email receipt is only one of many notification events I see. IM notifications are probably less efficient going through a central server. Dropbox notices would probably be well served outside of Growl, perhaps OmniFocus task notices as well. However, iTunes music changes, last.fm scrobbles, Handbrake encodes - basically any local processing alerts do not need to go through Apple's notification servers.

    This is a cool feature. More control/options is good.



    I just noticed the buttons in Lion for the first time; they're square. Which makes sense, for Apple to match their buttons with their iMacs. Round and shiny for the gum-drop style, matte and square with rounded corners for the current gen.



    Nice attention to detail, Apple. Keep it up.

    True, but Apple added Local Notifications to iOS, they could very well be planning to add them to OS X too, alongside Push.

    Ah, true. Well I'd hate to see Growl superseded by OSX notifications because of how flexible they are. Example, the vast majority of my notifications automatically fade after about three seconds. Omnifocus due notifications remain until I close them. And while I never use network or email notifications, I can see how handy those could be...

    What are you talking about, when an app crashes you get the option to show a report of what happened already. Now maybe the window that pops up will give users an option to save work & then crash. This example may be architected more for developers but something similar will probably show up in final version.

    All we can do is hope Apple employees use the same awesome apps we do, which is probably very likely. Along with Growl styled notifications & options how about some native QuickSilver like features built right into spotlight!!

    Woah, I forgot all about the reset and interrupt buttons on my Mac Plus. I just checked and they are still on there too! Woot! Since they clipped on, they were very easy to loose.

    if you just create a new untitled document, yup, it is saved.

    "Save as" is no more in textedit. Now you have "save" who allow you to name the new document or create a new version immediately and "duplicate" to create a new document starting from an old.



    I noticed this earlier when typing in TextEdit, but I'm a bit confused... It seems the file, despite being saved, won't actually show up in Documents until I press CMD+S. And thus, what happens if I never actually save the file, but close TextEdit? It just holds a file called "Untitled" in memory?

    Today Lion crashed completely. But it recovered without a restart. The screen just went blue, and after a couple of seconds it was up and running again. It was not just a restart of the finder. Is this a new feature??

    Not to be the NDA thrower-arounder ... but Lion is a Dev preview. Shouldn't you be talking about it only on the Dev Forums?

    Sorry if this seems off topic as it's not about push notifications, but has anyone else experienced severe input lag using a Magic Mouse and Apple keyboard? It makes the OS unusable.

    Right. What was Apple thinking releasing this to consumers in this state?! Oh, wait....
