Mac OS X Lion, and an updated version of Safari, are set to be released this summer.

Just about every time a new operating system is released, there are devices that get left behind, and things are no different with Apple's OS X Mountain Lion. This, sadly, is an inherent side effect of progress as Apple moves ahead and continues what it started in Mac OS X Lion , in bringing OS X closer to iOS . But, if you have an older Mac that will be stuck on Lion and thus, stuck a bit in the past, we won't blame you for feeling irritated about it -- as great of an operating system as Lion is. Apple hasn't yet released its official list of Macs that won't get support for Mountain Lion and company officials weren't available for comment on the matter on Friday morning.

Apple Inc. updated its MacBook Air laptops Wednesday and released the much-anticipated Mac OS X Lion, while also unceremoniously discontinuing its white entry-level MacBook line. The new MacBook Air notebook computers, which lack optical drives (another example of Apple pushing users toward a disc-free future), gain speedier Intel processors — ranging from the 1.6–gigahertz dual-core Core i5 chip in the lower-end, 11-inch-screen model, to the dual-core 1.8-GHz Core i7. The i5 and i7 processors are known for being powerful, with variations of this chip line running in Apple's MacBook Pros and iMac computers.

Apple has issued an update for Mac users that fixes a security hole identified last week that is known as the "Goto fail" bug. The security issue potentially makes it possible for hackers to intercept and even modify information users send from their Macs, iPads and iPhones to trusted services in what is known as a man-in-the-middle attack.  Apple corrected the gap for its mobile devices with an update over the weekend , but the tech community...

Though Apple just released its latest version of Mac OS X, Mountain Lion, many users still haven't even adopted Lion, its predecessor, and are actually running 2009's Snow Leopard. Almost half of all Mac users, or 45.5%, still run Snow Leopard as opposed to Lion, which has a near-35% adoption rate. Snow Leopard was the last Apple operating system to not be distributed solely through Apple's Mac App Store -- it still came in a disc. But despite Lion costing the same amount as Snow Leopard and seemingly being quicker to install as no disc was necessary, most users have held on to Snow Leopard, which was largely an under-the-hood performance upgrade from its predecessor, Leopard.
