For years, many Mac app developers have had to design their own ways to get your attention. But with Mountain Lion, a true systemwide notification service will finally arrive.
Two of the new iOS-flavored apps to move to the Mac with the release of Mountain Lion this summer are Notes and Reminders. Here’s a sneak peek at how they work.
iChat is dead—long live Messages. With Thursday’s announcement of Mac OS X Mountain Lion comes the news that iChat is being upgraded and renamed to Messages, with support for the iMessage chat system introduced with iOS 5.
Apple updates its iOS mobile operating system once a year. But why should the iPhone and iPad have all the fun? Apple has announced that it will release a new version of OS X—Mountain Lion—this summer, just a year after the release of OS X Lion.
Mac users, take note: as of September 13, 2000, the next-generation OS has landed. Sort of. Apple may not be finished yet, but it's taken its first big step with the public release of an early version of Mac OS X.
Apple Computer Inc.'s been down the dual-processor road before: back in 1996, when the Chicago Bulls and Gil Amelio still ruled the land, the company rolled out the power-mad Power Mac 9500. It had two 180MHz PowerPC 604e processors, and to really take advantage of the second one, you had to use software written specifically for the task.
Sometimes it's hard to see the future until it smacks you in the face. For the past two years, Apple has been telling us that Mac OS X is on the horizon-and that when it arrives it'll be a revolutionary development that will change the Macintosh experience forever. But like the year 2000, the arrival of OS X always felt like a distant eventuality.
When it comes to software, there's no free ride. In December, Qualcomm Inc. (800/238-3672, http://www.qualcomm.com) announced it will offer a full version of its Eudora e-mail program for free, continuing a trend that began when Microsoft offered its Internet Explorer Web browser for free. In the short term, Mac users have access to powerful Internet applications they don't have to pay for. But in the long term, it's possible that only companies rich or powerful enough to give away their software will be left standing.
