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.

You might bring up online gaming in something like the latest CoD, but no, playing against some asshole 12 y/o that thinks he's a 1337 |-|@X0rz because he's using a trainer app(99% chance of virus) to see through walls and whatnot hasn't been appealing in years.

Sorry, couldn't resist.
I love playing games too but the sheer idiocy has ruined online gaming for me. That and the fact that you need to spend 8+ hours a day grinding to get some lame in-game money to buy upgrades and crap. Even in FPS games. Seriously, wtf is that about.

Just play with people you know. I only play online over XBL with my actual, real-world friends.

Problem solved. Such a non-issue, this.
