10 Features Revealed for OSX Lion including Multi-Touch Gestures, Full Screen Apps, and Mission Control

Revealing OSX Lion on the first day of WWDC in California today, Apple's Phil Schiller started down a list of 10 features that would essentially outline the breadth of the new Mac operating system. He began with Multi-Touch Gestures, a system that would expand on what Apple's trackpads already had in place.

iCloud costing Apple up to $150m to charm labels?

Apple's new iCloud service may cost users $25/year - after a whet-your-appetite free trial - according to the latest rumors, but the company itself has reportedly had to open its wallet a whole lot wider in order to keep the labels happy.
