Gone in OS X Lion: iSync, Exposé in the Dock
This isn’t the Fairer Platform’s first time at the missing OS X Lion feature rodeo. Thereupon, the trimmings in Apple’s next-generation operating system are significant — Rosetta, Java Runtime, Flash, Samba and Front Row.
In a nutshell, Apple’s iSync is the feature in OS X that folks use to sync feature phones, such as the Motorola Razr, Nokia 91 and even Palm phones and PDAs (ugh!). With those devices fading fast into the sunset, the mothership’s decided it’s time for the rest of us to move on.
Make that a double
Features come and features go, but few quite so fast as this one. According to Wikipedia, Exposé in the Dock, a way of activating Exposé for a single application from the Dock, added in Mac OS X 10.6 has gone missing.
