    Wow! Love the music feature for converting ripped or downloaded song in iCloud.
    Hardest thing is syncing "all" my music!

    Thanks Gary!

    Gary, will iMacs using the Magic Mouse be able to take advantage of Lion's improved gesture UI? I'm speaking of "pinching" and other such gestures.

    Dear Gary
    During the upgrade to lion , do I need to reinstall the other software like IWORK or restore all my mail and everything again ?
    does the upgrade process leaves all as it it was?

      No. Installing an OS upgrade does not delete your applications or files.

      It will work with iPod touches as long as they are capable of running iOS 5.

    I wish AirPlay would work with my older Apple TV. They really abandonned it. Thinking of trying a home grown OS on it. Any advice on that? Guess Lion won't work on my old MacMini with just a Core Duo CPU and 2GB RAM. You forgot to mention web bookmark synching with iCloud. I hope they give us enough warning in case I have to move my parked domain and lose the iDisk file sharing feature. I am imagining all the hardware products they can build around iCloud. What a great strategy.

      Those are two different things. Lion is a version of OS X that runs on Macs. Your iPod Touch uses iOS, which is a different operating system. Upgrading your Mac to Lion won't change anything on your iPod Touch.

    Dear Gary,
    Thx for the great video.
    Any idea about the picture gallery on MobileMe? Will that still be poss. in iCould?
    I read about the photo-stream but it does not seem to be the same as the photogallery in MMe?
    I'm launching a website soon and wanted to know if I would not do better by getting a Picasa space or something similar with MMe disappearing?

    Thanks for your advise,
