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.

The car analogy doesn't apply. A car does only one thing: go from a to b. That's it. No amount of fiddling is going to change that.

A computer is more than that. It can do a bazillion things, and a computer bought yesterday can be made more useful today just by changing the software.
