Apple Drops Front Row Media Feature From OS X Lion

Given our recent reviews of the Elgato tuners specifically designed for Mac, we were hoping for somewhat of a growth for HTPC usage for Mac customers. Instead we discover that Apple has dropped Front Row (is Microsoft next?).

New features, amendments and the odd issue are still being discovered within Apple’s new OS X Lion operating system and one older feature to have received the chop in OS X Lion is Apple’s Front Row media menu. The Front Row feature under Snow Leopard was accessible by pressing the “Cmd+Esc” keys together.
