Rumors state that this summer a bunch of new features will be added to the Mac operating system, OS X Mountain Lion. Major features include Messages (which is said to replace iChat), Reminders, Notes, Game Center, Airplay Mirroring, Gatekeeper, Share sheets, Notification Center and iCloud.
Apple Store describes it as inspired by iPad and re-imagined for Mac. Also, with the new update, Apple’s desktop operating system is now simply called OS X, so from now on Apple will be used when refering to hardware products while OS X goes for the software.
OS X Mountain Lion comes with Reminders and Notes to simplify the user’s work. Reminders are meant to gather all important events from one’s life and make sure the user doesn’t miss a single one; deadlines and alerts will remind one if something that mustn’t be missed is soon to take place.
What is really outstanding is that the latest operating system for Mac provides Notification Center that keeps the user in touch with the rest of the world. It pops up messages, calendar and friend request on the desktop for a short period of time.
