15 Hot Business Apps for Your Mac

Apple is planning to release Mac OS X Lion, the next major upgrade to its operating system, through its Mac App Store, Neil Huges from AppleInsider reports. The Mac App Store, launched last January, is modeled after the company's popular App Store for its iOS platform. The Mac Store, which has recently seen its sales decline, would get a major boost in arm by becoming the primary source of Mac OS X Lion, according to Jason Mick at DailyTech.


Apple won't completely disregard optical discs in the move. The company will still provide the new OS for users who lack a broadband connection, says Leslie Horn over at While developers have had their paws on OS X Lion since February, Apple is expected to unveil the new OS at its annual Worldwide Developers Conference, which is set to take place June 6 through June 10.
