Last week we told you about fading dock icons but today I came across an interesting guide about how to speed up opening the terminal with the help of a shell. Credits for the guide go again to osxdaily so here is what they’ve discovered.
Each time that you try running the Terminal, Mac OS X will read various logs from the system so that it can now the details of the last login session. As a result, you can open the terminal faster in Mac OS X by using a shell instead of the default “/usr/bin/login” parameter.

Many people think that Mac OS X Lion is a perfect operating system, which works smooth all year round when in fact it is not entirely true. Just like any other operating system, Mac OS X Lion has all kind of services loading when you boot it up. This is why I thought that a guide to help you speed up startup time in Mac OS X Lion, would help you decrease the time required for boot .
Windows 8 users are the only ones who complain about having a bunch of programs loading at Mac OS X Lion startup. The truth is that no matter what operating system you’re on, you will still have some annoying startup programs running automatically once you boot into Mac OS X Lion, Windows 8 or any other.
One of the main differences between Mac OS X Lion and its counter-part from Microsoft, Windows 8, is that it comes with a really cool looking Dock which hosts all of your program shortcuts for easy access. Sure, we have seen several applications which imitate the Mac OS X Dock for the Windows operating system but in my opinion the original looks a lot better.
The most recent update to the MacBook Pro lineup brings in some serious processing power but also a lot of storage space, with 750GB hard disk drives on some of the 15 inch models. The thing is that no matter what storage space your drive comes with, in the end you will probably reach a point where you will strongly consider buying an external unit or something like that.
If you are a Windows or a Mac OS user, you always like to tweak your operating system settings, but unfortunately for Mac OS X Lion users, they have to be really skilled in using Terminal commands so that the changes will not make it worse. From what we know, there are not that many Mac OS users who know how to work with the commands but things will change as there is an interesting app that will help them tweak the settings.
