In our ongoing coverage of Lion, Adam looks at how to build an external Lion Recovery drive using Apple’s Lion Recovery Drive Assistant, and Michael Cohen walks readers through the questions necessary to find a replacement for Quicken under Lion. (Rich Mogull also has a great article on our Web site about Lion security that we didn’t have room for this week.) The other big news is Google’s acquisition of Motorola Mobility — Glenn Fleishman ponders what it means for Apple and other smartphone makers. Notable software releases this week include Voila Screen Capture 3.1, Mactracker 6.1, Migration Assistant Update for Mac OS X Leopard, DEVONthink and DEVONnote 2.2.1, TextExpander 3.3.2, BBEdit 10.0.1, and Skype 5.3.
