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.

Well, we can add another legacy feature to the list of things Apple’s forward migrating into oblivion. TUAW reports that iSync is going the way of DOS and the dodo.

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.

Know of other features that won’t make it into Mac OS X 10.7 Lion? Drop us a note and link in the comments below…
