Apple Back To The Mac

Bookmaker.com, which garnered plenty of good press on Tuesday with its odds on the “Back to the Mac” event, will have to pay out money on one of its offerings.

It had offered +150 odds on the next version of OS X will be called “Lion”.  The payout would be $15 for every $10 bet.

"What's the philosophy behind Mac OS X Lion? Well that's where the 'Back to the Mac' thing comes from," Apple CEO Steve Jobs said.

It will feature multitouch, an app store, and full screen function.  One-click downloads, auto-updates and free as paid apps are part of the app store feature.

Jobs also unveiled an ultraslim MacBook Air, which is just 0.11 inches thick with two screen size verions including a 13.3-inch and 11.6-inch.

The new laptop will feature a flash drive in place of a hard drive.  They will be priced between $1000 and $1500. – Aaron Goldstein, Gambling911.com.
