AppleBitch reports, “The sticks, available for $69, offer an alternative for those who do not wish to purchase Lion using the Mac App Store download method. Users who also have problems recovering their system using Lion’s built in recovery tools can also get one of these sticks and may even be eligible to receive one free of charge rather than paying full price.”
