Mac OS X 10.7 Lion: the Ars Technica review | Mac Stuff | Scoop.it

Re-downloading Lion | The Mac Screencast Guy

Re-downloading Lion | The Mac Screencast Guy | Mac Stuff | Scoop.it
"I've received a lot of emails from people who installed Lion before watching the tutorial, and are now unable to create the USB installer drive so they have a backup, or to use on other Macs. The issue is that the standard install deletes the Installer file as part of the process so if you don't copy it, it's gone.
Even worse is that once Lion is installed, it doesn't seem to allow you to re-download the installer, perhaps forcing you to buy the official USB drive when available next month - for a cool $60.
Well the good news is that you can re-download the installer, even if you have Lion installed."

→ good to know there are some ways

The Best Video Player for Mac | lifehacker | Mac Stuff | Scoop.it
"The Mac offers a few options for video players, and all of them are pretty great, but VLC still gets the gold medal for video playback because it just works better than the competition."

→ In terms of performance I agree that VLC is better; but MPlayerX is much nicer (UI) to use.
