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.

Don't worry Thom, as the Australian tourist to Asia in search of non cotton wooled experiences has show, with a few resultant deaths in boundary pushing, the same will happen with Tech.

Personally it would be nice to lock all these cotton wool brigaders away so as not hinder the progress of mankind but, it is going to take a lot before nannied West wakes the F up and gets over itself. I do believe this lot will happen quickly as the systems of the West implode under the weight of corruption and gov control much like the Soviet System imploded, cause enough of us said enough!

The irony will be those countries the media in the West called authoritarian and lacking in freedoms that will rocket ahead past the West and allow their people to have non locked down freedoms which the West is kissing bye bye.
