I turned of the new backwards scrolling, but when I read the logic in MacWorld, I thought I'd give it another go. Basically, the metaphor is now that you are scrolling the content - not the scrollbar. When you think of it that way, it makes sense - but it is taking some getting used to.
Can I describe the new looks for iCal and Address Book as a bug? I hate them. I have a 17" MBP. Yet Address Book is confined to a tiny window lost somewhere in the middle of the screen. Ugh. Even the new full screen doesn't seem to work in it - and I have never, ever wanted to own a brown faux-leather address book or diary. Even in the 80s my Filofax was plain black leather.
Eurgh - that made me look… that's ugly! andI was loving it so far!
I downloaded Lion yesterday, didn't take too long to stop with an error message, something along the lines of "unable to install, cannot create recovery" then gave an Apple support web address that didn't help much. So, having current a Applecare contract I phoned Apple (not in India, by the way) and spoke to two helpful people. The first explained that because there is no back-up disk Lion attempts to download a recovery program to a separate partition on the hard drive. In my case this was not possible because the space was occupied by Bootcamp. To cut a long story short I agreed to delete Bootcamp as I no longer need it, this was quite a palaver but I was talked through the process by the Apple adviser.
For any future readers, I think the Apple Adviser was giving you duff advice. I'm glad you don't need Boot Camp any more, but I found that just booting into it, having a quick look round, then restarting in Snow Leopard. That changed the Boot Camp partition and allowed me to install Lion without problem.
My white iMac has bootcamp on it. I had no problem with Lion install. I had better check that bootcamp still works though.
I managed to do a clean install on my MacBook by creating a DVD, booting from than and wiping the hard disk.
^Don't worry. We can be part of the cool-dude Leper Leopard crew. Until September when I get my loan. Then I'll get Snow Leopard... For 15 minutes... Then upgrade to Lion. I will feel like I'm wasting Snow Leopard. Unless can someone sell me a used SL DVD? You can buy old Windows copies on eBay legally so could I obtain a cheap SL used?

Will Green: I'm really looking forward to iOS 13, at the moment the iPad hardware is way ahead of the OS. My MacBook Pro was accidentally broken, so when going on business or interviews I take my iPad. The files app seems very clumsy as it is.

Will Green: So I'm looking forward to seeing what iOS 13 has to offer.
