Apple issues fourth beta of Mac OS X 10.6.7 with no known issues

For the fourth consecutive week, Apple has issued a beta of Mac OS X 10.6.7, the next update to its Snow Leopard operating system, to developers, who have been asked to focus testing on the Mac App Store.

Apple released build 10J855, available either as a 1GB combo update or 412.6MB delta update, on Thursday. According to people familiar with documentation for the update, there are no known issues with the build.

The first beta of Mac OS X 10.6.7 was seeded on Jan. 20, with updates following roughly within a week of the previous one for the past month.

Developers have been encouraged to focus on the Mac App Store, Airport, Bonjour, SMB file sharing and Graphics Drivers, said those familiar with the beta.

It is unclear what new features, if any, will be included in Mac OS X 10.6.7 when it is released to the public, but the launch of the Mac App Store last month is expected to be the last major feature added to Mac OS Snow Leopard.

Apple announced last October its plan to release Mac OS 10.7 Lion this summer. The next major update to its flagship operating system will include features brought over from iOS to the Mac platform, such as a home screen, full-screen applications and new multi-touch gestures.

AT&T MiFi 2372 review

In the week or so that I have been testing the AT&T MiFi 2372 by Novatel Wireless, it has already saved no less than three lives. First, it saved my cable guy’s life. You see, Time Warner Cable provides the worst home Internet service I have ever experienced. I can’t even think of a close second. If providing terrible home Internet service was a sport, Time Warner Cable would be on its tenth consecutive undefeated season. Forget the fact that my upload speed is capped at 60Kbps and I’m lucky if I can get half that — it has been months since I’ve gone through a full day without at least one service interruption. Months. Unfortunately, Time Warner Cable has an exclusive contract with my building so I have no choice but to endure its abysmal service. Last week, as a Time Warner Cable technician entered my home for the sixth time in two months, I realized that this certainly would have spelled serious trouble had it not been for my trusty new back up device.
