I just installed it. I'm looking forward to seeing how well they integrated Facebook and how much they extended battery life even though I keep my Air plugged in most of the time.

Well crap. Facebook integration is great for Safari users, but what about Chrome users.

I have a Mini and not a laptop but I have a question about battery life. I have a Lenovo laptop that I can adjust the settings on in regards to battery. On the first start it asks if you use it mostly plugged in or on battery. It then sets to not charge the battery all the time to prolong the life of it. Do Mac laptops have such an adjustment?

They do not have a setting, but I wouldn't be surprised if the battery controller does something similar automatically.

Apple does recommend exercising the battery at least once a month, so it may not be as aggressive as Lenovo's.

Ok, that is good info.

Does that mean Applecare includes a free visit from a priest once per month?

Yes, I know it's spelled different

Active Directory plugin is still broken, smb shares are still broken.

They should just stop at this point and say "eh we don't support it".
