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.

Didn't you know? Thom is a demi-god, able to mod posts after posting himself.

I don't believe in that god stuff.

I think Thom is just the embodiment of a moral compass needed to unify people in hard times of market sickness and innovation starving, later becoming a symbol of our fanily values, and a voice for our concerns about the future of our devices.

Just because some people point to his words when starting flame wars, and some people see him as the anti-fireball, it's still we who fight, hidden behind some idea of a man (ideal or dutch, doesn't matter).

He's only as real as we make him to be.
