Apple announced a couple weeks ago that Mac OS X Lion will only be available as a download from its Mac App Store.  So what about all the people who have slower Internet connections (DSL Lite), dial-up or, as scary as it sounds, those who don’t have Internet at all?  ComputerWorld has posted an article […]
