Lion is supposed to dumb things down a bit for basic users. No (need for) spotlight looking for apps, simply click that rocket thing and get an iOS style view you can endlessly swipe through to find apps. But wait. There's more. Or should I say less. Under SL, my 2008 Penryn Macbook was geekbenching at 3000+ and most recently at 3300. Now it's down to 2800. 2800. Wow. And the fan is running all the time now. Bummer. No wait. Chrome has flash running. Let me shut that down and come back and 1) rerun geekbench and 2) listen for the fans to go off. Ok, I'm back with flashblock enabled and the fans only run for geekbench which is now at 2957. Not the highest I've got but closer to average again. Whew.
