On the 20th of July, Apple was glad to announce that it made the Mac OS X 10.7 Lion operating system available to the public via the Mac App Store. On the same date Yahoo! was pleased to announce that several of its products are integrated into the eighth major release of the Mac OS X operating system.

“If you’re purchasing a shiny new Macbook with the latest OSX Lion just released you’ll find a seamless integration with some of your favorite Yahoo! products,” announced Product Manager with Yahoo! Mail, Herbert Wang.
Herbert went on to say that when a Lion user opens the new Mail app the operating system has to offer, the user will be asked to set up an Yahoo! account. Once the user sets up an account, he or she will have access to:

Yahoo! Mail – the user will be able to send email directly from within Apple’s Mail app.
Yahoo! Contacts – the user has access to all the contacts from his or her Yahoo! Addressbook and all the contacts added to the Apple address book are automatically backed up by Yahoo! As Herbert explained, “Yahoo! is the only partner that supports the tight Contacts service integration with OSX.
Yahoo! Calendar – the user can share calendars with others and keep calendars in sync across devices.
Yahoo! Messenger – the user can chat with his or her friends using Apple’s iChat product, se which Yahoo! Messenger friends are online, and get in touch with Yahoo! Messenger friends.

Mac OS X 10.7 Lion is available for purchase as an upgrade to existing Mac OS X 10.6.6 Snow Leopard users. The operating system can be purchased from the Mac App Store for $29.99. “Lion is the best version of OS X yet, and we’re thrilled that users around the world can download it starting today,” said Philip Schiller, Apple’s senior vice president of Worldwide Product Marketing. “Lion makes upgrading a Mac easier than ever before; just launch the Mac App Store, buy Lion with your iTunes account, and the download and install process will begin automatically.”
