Mac OS X Finally Implements Autosave in 10.7 Lion

Apple recently released this video to highlight some of the many improvements coming in Mac OS 10.7, Lion. The feature I’m most pleased to see is autosave. Saving files is an example of interface excise; that is, a procedure or task that software requires us to perform even though it doesn’t contribute to our goals. Autosave will be a very welcome addition, but it’s been a very long time coming. (Autosave is explained 2 minutes 35 seconds into the video.)
