Just a few hours ago Apple has announced Mac OS X 10.8, dubbed "Mountain Lion," the next major release of its Mac operating system, set to launch on the Mac App Store this summer. Apple has boasted that Mountain Lion packs over 100 new features, including many brought from the iPad and iOS mobile operating system.
New features introduced with Mountain Lion include Messages, which replaces iChat, as well as Notes, Reminders and Game Center for the Mac, Notification Center, Share Sheets, Twitter integration, and AirPlay Mirroring. Mountain Lion will also be the first OS X release with iCloud. Apple also adds Gatekeeper, which helps keep users safe from malicious software by giving control over what applications are installed on a Mac.
This time Apple decided to add its Game Center to OS X 10.8 Mountain Lion that is expected to be unveiled this summer. Game Center for Mac will even replicate the user interface of the existing Game Center offerings for iPad, iPhone and iPod touch. So, now users will be able to play online competitively and cooperatively against gamers who have the same title for iOS.
- By logging in with an Apple ID, users can add friends and keep track of their played games in Game Center.
- Multiplayer games can be initiated with someone added to a friends list, or even with new players randomly matched up.
- Game Center in Mountain Lion also features leaderboards, so gamers can compare their high scores to friends and other top players around the world.
Best Buy has decided to carry out a survey related to the rumored Apple’s HDTV powered by iOS that, noteworthy to say, has not been released yet. The questionnaire notes that the 42-inch Apple HDTV "finally reinvents what a TV can do," with a 1080p LED flat panel display, connectivity with iCloud, and the ability to use an iPhone or an iPad as a remote control, and "iSight" camera. Such details, however, look like speculations on the part of Best Buy. Since introducing FaceTime video chat, Apple has referred to its forward-facing cameras as FaceTime cameras, not iSight.
The full details from the survey follow:
Though Apple doesn’t officially participate at CES, the company continues to keep an eye on new products by its competitors, but is likely also interested in what companies are coming up with in terms of accessories for Apple's own products, and CES is a prime event for announcements for products of all types, including those within the Mac- and iOS-related markets. paidContent has in fact proven Apple's interest in CES when met accidently into iOS device marketing chief Greg Joswiak on the floor at the expo.
While wandering around the Central Hall of the Las Vegas Convention Center Tuesday, I bumped into Greg Joswiak, head of iOS product marketing for Apple, just outside of Sony’s booth. Joz, as he’s known within the Apple community, grinned sheepishly upon being recognized by a reporter and stopped to chat for a few minutes.

Implementation of this feature on the Mac will reportedly be similar and will allow broadcasting whatever is on your desktop to your TV.

JPMorgan analysts have recently predicted that Apple slashed its fourth quarter iPad production plans by 25%, suggesting significant price cut. But The Wall Street Journal believes that such argument is insufficient to make these predictions. Other analysts not that Apple appears to have actually accelerated production ahead of the holiday shopping season. Sources also indicate that Apple plans to begin production of the iPad 3 at the end of the fourth quarter or early in 2012, so accelerating production now, the company tries to ease that transition.
We believe chatter regarding iPad production cuts are misleading – we have seen pull-ins, not cuts. We have noted recent comments by competitors discussing iPad production cuts for 4Q. Our recently published AAPL supply-chain checks noted a sequential decline in 4Q iPad builds from 17 mln-19 mln units in 3Q to 11 mln-13 mln units in 4Q. However, the 4Q sequential decline was accompanied by an increase in 3Q builds, leading us to conclude that production was likely pulled-in from 4Q to 3Q.
Some analysts suggest that the fourth quarter production cuts may be connected with shifting some production to Brazil by the end of the year.
