    I'm curious to see how many apps "ship" on Lion with Full Screen and Versions support and how fast MAS updates are (Delta)

    I believe we will see it on Thursday 14th July as rumours suggest, hopefully alongside new MBA's at the very least.

    Well Pixelmator made a pretty good deal with their free update to v2 so I wouldn't count them as bad. DVDRemaster had a 2 day period where their app was $5 and they send an email arround to everyone that previously owned it so that no one would miss it.



    So there are some solutions to this problem. The feature I miss most is student rebate. Wouldn't it be great if I could just send Apple a student certificate every semester and automatically get the student price for every app (that supports it?)

    Where are the .99 & 1.99 apps in the MAS?

    Is anyone getting the issue in Snow Leopard of Invites from Outlook, etc. sent as ICS not going back to the Outlook systems properly using Apple iCal?



    Annoying issue because some clients (and potential clients) of mine using Outlook/Windows are thinking I'm declining or not accepting their invitations, I have to manually email them and let them know.



    According to Apple discussion forums, this has been happening recently since they changed the calendaring system (quite an overhaul really) a few months ago. Problem also occurs on iCal on iPad, which is a concern because with iCloud etc and people using iPad and Mac, it may not be interfacing with the Windows Outlook meeting system.



    Is this fixed in iCal/ Mail in Lion? It's a weakness of iCal which I think Apple should tighten up, their Outlook/ Exchange Server improvements have been commendable, though I have no first-hand knowledge of that. Haven't used Windows for anything work-related for years, except to see how websites look in Internet Explorer.

    Hard to say at this moment. My guesstimate is that it's looking like the Tuesday 26th of July at the earliest, probably with new MacBook Airs.

    I've spend just five minutes reading the article, reading the comments, sending off a snarky reply or two, and at the bottom I see 21 people lingering around. What are you all doing?



    It's this:

    i really don't get what's so onerous about this - registered owners of an app ought to be able to submit their apple ids to the developer, who passes them on to apple, who authorise download of the MAS version of the app on that account



    how is that not possible to do? it would certainly dramatically speed the move over to the MAS. it seems totally counterproductive not to permit this

    FYI, a source with "close ties to Apple" suggests Lion will begin rolling out at 1am tonight, UK time.

    Looking like the "source with close ties to Apple" wasn't as close as he/she thought. More like a third cousin on the mother's side.

    Looks like I was right after all.
