Roar? With the coming of Apple’s amazing third quarter profits is the release date for their new Mac OS X release: Lion. It launches tomorrow on the Mac App Store of $30 and is only 4GB in size.
Think of this: Apple has iOS 5 and Mac OS X Lion coming around the corner further stabilizing their dominance in proiding amazing user experiences on their hardware, and further advancing their monopoly of making the nearly-perfct software. But what about hardware? Well, for the third of 2011, Apple sold 20.34m iPhones, 9.25m iPads, and 3.95m Macs. Those numbers are well above the estimates made by analysts and Wall street. PR after the break for your analysis.
So while the release to the monumental Minecraft Beta 1.8 nears, more screenshots have been outed by both Notch and Jeb, this time displaying cooked chicken (seen after the break) and taller natural formations. Also an experimental bug launcher is available for those who would like to stress-test it and give the geeks at Mojang AB an easier time at getting the new launcher ready for Minecraft Beta 1.8.

Apple has officially approved Google+ for iPhone without much drama or issue, and it is now available from the App Store, for free. Now, how about a version for the iPad, Google? The app has all of the features seen in the Android app, however just with the normal iOS flares we’ve come to know of Google apps on iOS. Via: iTunes
Nokia’s first intentional leak on the Nokia Sea Ray was rather small, but this newer leaks comes in the form of a rather clear video, along with quick look of Windows Phone 7 Mango. There’s a plastic flap covering the microUSB port (located at the top), along with a placeholder boot screen for WP7. Check out the video, embedded after the break. Via: WPCentral
Tired of long URLs for Google’s products and pages (like Google+ profiles)? Well, Google is too, so they have G.co now, much like Twitter’s T.co, and Amazon’s A.co. Apparently the G.co link will go online later today, and will be the ultimate form of verification that you’re visiting a true Google page or product, in the format of g.co/[XYZproduct/service]. As for the price of said TLD, .Co founder Juan Diego Calle states a domain like G.co costs more than $1.5 million, and as part of this monumental addition to the .Co portfolio, the 500 Startups will become 500.co, therefore giving the “.Co” branding the true definition of “company”.
So now, here’s the question: Is T.co better than G.co?
Want to see what every single part of a brand new Motorola DROID 3 looks like? Head over to iFixit right here to check it out. Oh, and according to iFixit, the “repairability score” (meaning how easy to take it apart) is a meager 6 out of 10, which really isn’t that hard or that easy.
Well, will you take a look at that? My fellow geeks at Thisismynext have busted open another exclusive (don’t be surprised, it just happens for them) and took a short but blurry look at the Samsung Galaxy S II variant for Sprint, which in the recent months was dubbed the Samsung Within. As all reports of US-bound Galaxy S II go, the new line of Galaxy S II devices will all have Android 2.3.4 with Touchwiz 4.0, an 8 megapixel camera and front-facing, and the dual-core 1GHz to 1.2GHz ARMv7 setup seen in the European model, as well as possibly coming in every carrier’s flavor of “4G”. In this case, we (and by “we”, I mean “I”) cannot wait for the Galaxy S II to launch here in the States. It’s just boss.
