I discovered some real advantages to upgrading to Lion OS following our break-in last week. Had I installed Lion and added the Find My iPhone app on my phone, I may have been able to track the location of my MacBookPro. Prior to upgrading to Lion, the app could only be used to track an iPhone, not a computer or iPad. Its a free app and upgrading to Lion is just $29 which seems like a small price to pay when I consider the cost of a new MacBookPro.
If you’ve been holding off upgrading to Lion, I recommend taking the chance. There are actually some really nice features and MacWorld has written some great articles about Lion including a cover article from the November 2011 issue about making the most out of Lion (and making it more Leopard-like, if you so desire).
