OS X Lion Stick to hit Apple Stores as Soon as Today

For those who are still on an analog modem, Apple is releasing OS X Lion on an USB Stick this week.

Apple released OS X Lion got released on July 20. The $29.99 OS X Update was released only as a download through the Apple App Store. If you live off the grid, this is a problem. According to 9to5Mac's source Mr. X, Apple is releasing the Apple OS X Lion USB stick. Giving Mr. X recent performance, the OS X Lion Stick might already be offered today.

While OS X Lion is a great update, it has several bugs. The most annoying issues are with Wi-Fi. My iMac loses connection after wake-up 8 out of 10 times. Only fix is to restart Wi-Fi. The new mail client occasionally forgets the POP account password. Only fix is restart of Mail. Speaking of the new Mail. The handling of newsletters is really bad. I have not found a fix for that. The new Mail client loads all emails form the newsletter into the preview pane and this takes time. I just want to view the newest one right away and not wait until that is rendering. If anyone knows a workaround for this "feature" please post a comment below.

OS X Lion introduces more than 250 new features to the Mac, including Multi-Touch gestures; system-wide support for full screen apps; Mission Control, an innovative view of everything running on your Mac; the Mac App Store, the best place to find and explore great software; Launchpad, a new home for all your apps; and a completely redesigned Mail app. My favorite new feature is definitely the new Mission Control. It really puts me into control of my six desktops.
