Introduction to OS X Lion Workshop Today

In case you missed the last workshop on Apple's newest operating system, "Lion," Will Le, Apple's student rep on Penn's campus, is offering it again this very afternoon (Friday, Oct 7, 2pm-3:30pm in the WIC Seminar Room). It's a great introduction for anyone who's thinking about upgrading, or for people who have already made the switch but weren't quite sure how to take advantage of all the new features.

Get a preview of some of the new features of Lion at

We Lost a Friend Yesterday

The lab owes a great deal to the man who helped bring us all of this incredible technology. We always had a charge after seeing what new things he would unveil at his press conferences. Steve's products were always clean, sleek, and sometimes beautiful, but most importantly, they just worked. His company certainly shaped our daily lives and with his early involvement with Pixar, he helped warm our heart. You will be missed sir.
