TUAW TV Live: Steve and Rich talk Lion, iOS 5 and food

OK, maybe we won't get around to talking about food, although the two of us are both accomplished chefs, but we'll certainly be talking about the two new major operating system versions that will be shipping later this year.

In July, of course, Mac OS X 10.7 Lion is slated to drop from Cupertino. For just US$29.99, the new OS is the first Mac operating system designed to be distributed via the Mac App Store. With a load of new features and redesigned user interface, Lion is bound to both excite and frustrate Mac users. Later in 2011, iOS 5 will hit our iOS devices and bring a variety of new features to the mobile space. We still don't know all of the details about these two new operating systems, but that will be part of the fun of today's TUAW TV Live.

My guest today is TUAW blogger Rich Gaywood, who will be joining me for an hour of discussion on the forthcoming OS upgrades. From your Mac or PC, go to the next page by clicking the Read More link at the bottom of this post, and you'll find a livestream viewer and a chat tool. The chat tool allows you to participate by asking questions or making comments.
