Save Sponsored Links A reader contacted us the other day with an interesting problem: Here's the twist: It's also not available on Apple's website, or Amazon. The good news is that Lion is still available from Apple The only weird part is that the Apple Support salesman said that it may take "up to a couple of days" to get the redemption code. I'm not sure why that is, but my guess is that if you haven't upgraded to Lion yet, waiting another day or two won't be a huge deal.
Two words: That's correct — Lion's default scrolling behavior is to scroll down when you swipe up on your multitouch mouse, and to scroll up when you swipe down, just like you would on an iPad. This modification in scrolling clearly illustrates Apple's ambition with Mac OS X Lion, which was to make the Mac operating system more like the mega-popular iOS software powering not just the iPad, but also the iPhone and the iPod Touch. Apple CEO Steve Jobs previously said the company was learning lessons from the iPad and rolling them into its desktop operating system. The company envisions a future where PCs become more and more like mobile products , as they continue to get thinner, lighter, more battery-efficient and more dependent on online storage. And while that all sounds great, some of Lion's iOS-like features scale up very well, while others behave very poorly in a desktop environment. First, let me finish my rant about inverted scrolling.
