  • OS X Mountain Lion Will Be Released Tomorrow


    Apple officially announced earlier today that OS X 10.8 Mountain Lion, the next-generation Mac operating system, will be available in the Mac App Store starting Wednesday, July 25 (tomorrow). It will be available for download for OS X Lion and OS X Snow Leopard users at the price of $19.99. Users who bought a Mac after June 11 will receive the upgrade to Mountain Lion for free after filling out a form, which was previously spotted then removed yesterday.

    This whole announcement was made during today’s fiscal third quarter results call by Apple CEO Tim Cook and is in line with the rumors that were circulating about a possible July 25th launch date. These rumors all cited extended Apple employee working hours which will also be in effect tomorrow. Cook said the following during his call: “We’ve also just updated the entire MacBook line, will release Mountain Lion tomorrow and will be launching iOS 6 this fall. We are also really looking forward to the amazing new products we’ve got in the pipeline.”

    OS X Mountain Lion is said to bring features inspired by Apple’s iOS platform to the Mac operating system. These features include AirPlay Mirroring, Game Center, and tighter integration with iCloud. Overall, it is said that the new operating system is bringing over 200 features to the Mac OS X, leaving many users eager in anticipation. The announcement of the release of OS X Mountain Lion comes two weeks after Apple seeded the gold master to developers with no known issues. No major issuers were found with the finalized version of the new OS, including focus issues regarding graphic performance and quality, image and media importing, editing or viewing, and networking reliability and performance.

    All of those who have been patiently waiting now have a confirmed date, one that is sooner rather than later so you won’t even have to wait much.

      Anyone know in the GM if it actually does Encrypted wifi time machine to time capsule? That is a big one I wanted without having to do the parse bundle trick.

      Apple actually brought the price down a little. But think about it. A phone to a computer is a big difference. A computer can do a lot more things. It makes sense to have a free mobile os, then have a paid computer os. Plus to upgrade on windows is a lot more..

      The person who said that was a troll. Last time I checked a service pack never came with a couple hundred new features.

      so not only are you willing to overpay for a laptop, you are saying you are willing to overpay for software also! 20 bucks is not a deal breaker but saying you'd pay 50 is saying you'd pay 10 bucks for a double cheeseburger
