Mac OS X Lion Adds 'Signature Capture' Feature to Preview

No comments:



Apple has added a new feature to capture your handwritten signature and place it into documents using Mac OS X Lion and Preview.


Discovered by a 9to5Mac reader, the new 'Signature Capture' is accessed from the Annotate toolbar.






Simply hold up a piece of paper to your computer's camera and Preview will capture the signature and store it for future use.

Apple Adds Yahoo Messenger Video Chat to iChat

No comments:



Apple has added support for Yahoo Messenger text, voice, and video chat to its iChat application for Mac OS X Lion, according to an AppleInsider report.

For Lion, Apple has added Yahoo as an account type. Yahoo operates its own proprietary protocol that can't interoperate with AOL or Jabber type accounts.

The other primary chat protocol is Microsoft's Windows Live Messenger, which is also proprietary and does not support cross chat with AOL or Jabber, although Microsoft and Yahoo have created a gateway between their two networks.

News of the new Yahoo client working with video and voice chat was initially reported by blogger iMarck90.

Yahoo Messenger was the first app to bring 3G video chat to the iPhone.

Find My Mac Could Be Coming to OS X

No comments:



References found in the developer preview of Mac OS X Lion reveal that Apple has been testing a new Find My Mac feature, according to 9to5Mac.

The details are scarce at this point, but we have found references to a Find my Mac service deep down in the 10.7 file system. The actual system files don’t tell us much besides the name, but they do share this Lion build number: 11A372z.

That build number appears to be an internal seed, meaning Apple has been playing around with this Find my Mac feature internally, but swiped it from the developer preview.

Find My iPhone is a free MobileMe service that lets you locate your device on a map should it be lost or stolen.

Retina Monitor Support Found in Mac OS X Lion

No comments:



Apple may be building in support for super high resolution 'Retina' monitors into Mac OS X Lion, according to files found my MacRumors.

Taking cues from iOS, Apple has reportedly built in support for what it calls "HiDPI display modes". These HiDPI modes allow developers to supply 2x-enlarged images to support double-high resolution displays. Like the iPhone 4's Retina Display, this means that user interface elements will remain the same size, but everything will be twice the resolution and therefore twice as detailed. For example, instead of a 1440x900 pixel 15" MacBook Pro, you could have a 2880x1800 pixel 15" MacBook Pro. All the screen elements would be the same physical size as elements on the 1440x900 display, but with a much higher level of detail. Developers would simply need to provide 2x-resolution images for their user interface elements, just like on the iPhone to support its high resolution Retina display.

Apple recently released the first preview of Mac OS X Lion to developers. The new operating system is expected to be released to the public this summer.
