Mac OS X Well, this is a surprise. Several websites have a preview up of Apple's next Mac OS X release - it's called Mountain Lion, and continues the trend of bringing over functionality from iOS to Mac OS X. Lots of cool stuff in here we've all seen before on iPhones and iPads, including one very, very controversial feature: Gatekeeper. Starting with Mac OS X 10.8, Apple's desktop operating system will be restricted to Mac App Store and Apple-signed applications by default (with an opt-out switch), following in Windows 8's footsteps.

I work in China so see some interesting things, it is true in the US just about everything you do to take control of something you bought and paid for is a crime, but over here I have walked into Apple resellers and watched them jailbreak any of the devices you want for a small fee, it will be a long time before things are locked down except maybe in the US and Europe
