TUAW Talkcast tonight: Lion features and more
There's nothing quite like Sunday night around TUAW-land. Many of us who participate regularly in the Talkcast look forward to this night as the time we can get together with our friends and talk about our passion -- Apple products.
Tonight we'll turn our opinionated mouths to the next cat from Apple, Mac OS X 10.7 "Lion" and some of the anticipated features that we're now beginning to hear about. Whether it's Launchpad, full-screen apps, the new iOS-like Mail app, Mission Control, the new Multi-Touch gestures, AirDrop or any of the other features we've heard about, we'll discuss it.
We'll also tackle the news of the week plus your questions and comments -- and if there's time afterward, there's always the TUAWTF aftershow (never recorded, often regretted).
To participate on TalkShoe, you can use the browser-only client, the embedded Facebook app, or download the classic TalkShoe Pro Java client; however, for maximum fun, you should call in. For the web UI, just click the TalkShoe Web button on our profile page at 4 HI/7 PDT/10 PM EDT Sunday. To call in on regular phone or VoIP lines (yay for free cell phone weekend minutes!): dial (724) 444-7444 and enter our talkcast ID, 45077 -- during the call, you can request to talk by keying in *8.
If you've got a headset or microphone handy on your Mac, you can connect via the free Blink or X-Lite SIP clients; basic instructions are here (if you like Blink, the pro version is available in the Mac App Store). Talk to you tonight.
