Apple Shows OS X Mountain Lion for Mac
Apple announced the latest OS X version Thursday February 16th, and although it looks similar at first glance, there are many additions to OS X 10.8 Mountain Lion. You may even think that this is the first real binding of features seen in Apple's iOS with Mac OS X. Things like the Notification Center and iMessage are at the top of that list.
Other features to make their way to OS X 10.8 are Game Center integration as well as AirPlay Mirroring. Both of which are also taken from the iOS feature list. It is much more apparent what Apple has in mind for their Mac line of computers, as the world becomes more mobile, and iOS continues to dominate the mobile markets for tablet devices as well as smartphones. Now we just have to get our hands on a touchscreen iMac and we'll all be set. Until then, here's a video of OS X 10.8 Mountain Lion, followed by the Apple Press Release.
