Happy Wednesday everyone! This week’s Linkage Love features the two biggest tech stories of July: Apple’s new OS, Lion and Google+ Happy reading!
Unless you live under a rock or really, really, really don’t care about Apple, you likely know that the newest version of Mac OS X, named Lion, showed up in the App Store this morning (along with some new MacBook Airs. Yes, I will confess to lusting for one despite having owned mine for less than a year. Can you say backlit keyboard?). If you’re a Mac owner planning to upgrade, here are some links for you:
- MacWorld tells you how to get your Mac ready for Lion
- LifeHacker brings you the Lion Survival Guide
- Cult of Mac gives a gushing review (they are named “Cult” of Mac after all. Despite the gushing, there are some good points and useful tips in the review)
I am fairly certain that most of you reading this are already on Google+ given the size of my #sachat circle. If you’re not, you probably will be soon. Below are some links of interest if you’re trying to figure out what all the Google+ hype is about:
- Mashable’s Complete Guide to Google+
- MacWorld goes hands on with Google+
- The Innovative Educator helps you figure out when to use Google+, Facebook, Twitter, or blogs as well as what Google+ could mean for education
- From Feministing: Google+ Has a Gender Problem and an update to the original post
What about you all? Are you on Google+? If yes, do you like it, hate it, feel “meh” about it? Anyone upgrading immediately to Lion? Or waiting to see how things go first? Let us know in the comments!
