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.

But for 99% of the users it doesn't matter and would be better. If there is a hidden button to mess up a computer, people will find it and press it. The iPhone and iPad don't have such a button and don't get messed up.


I've yet to see an Android phone get messed up....
