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'm anti-anyone who employs the kind of business tactics Apple and Microsoft employ. Apple makes some great products (every review I've ever written makes that very clear) but the company's practices are rotten.


I think you need to deal with the fact that is business. If you don't like how capitalist companies behave there are other models (such as cooperative) ... that might be more to your liking.

Not only that, you can hardly take the moral high ground after buying many of their products ... apparently you are telling us that talk is cheap and you are quite happy to support said company as long as they make gadgets you like.
