For those that live and thrive on the leading edge of technology which can also be the bleeding edge at times, if you are considering upgrading your Apple Mac to impending OS X Lion update you should first research if your applications and hardware are ready. It takes some time for software developers to fully test for compatibility in a new Operating Systems changes and then update their code to support the new OS. While OS X Lion looks like a good update to OS X for Mac users including many long needed new shiny bells and improvements, you need to remember to do your research before installing any new OS on your machine regardless if it is Mac or Windows OS updates.
When you upgrade your OS make sure your hardware and software are ready for it, or you may be the defenseless squealing little animal on the digital savannah with a hungry Lion quickly approaching to eat your productivity and happiness for a snack.

Other day to day tools I use such as the ones from my friends at TechSmith and their SnagIt and Camtasia. They sent out an email last week on their Mac OS X Lion testing and indicating they will be releasing an update to address compatibility issues found in testing.
A new version of Apple's operating system, Mac OS X 10.7 (Lion), has been announced and will be coming soon!
