So goes the rumor.
It's not Apple Computer opening up actual cages to reveal real lions, at least not yet, it's the release of the new operating system, OSX 10.7, codenamed Lion, presumably because it sounds cool. Rawr! Lion! Word is that Apple retail stores have been told to upgrade their internal computers to get ready for the new release of Lion and perhaps the newest MacBook Air. Lion has built in Facetime, built in App Store access, and is said to offer more in the way of security than previous versions. Anyway, unless you're hardcore nerd you've stopped reading. If you are such a nerd, well, hello. How are you liking Game Of Thrones so far?
