Mac OS X Ars Technica is reporting that certain 64bit Mac models won't be able to run Mountain Lion. The problem is the graphic card drivers; these are still 32bit, and Apple is unwilling to update them to 64bit. A 64bit kernel can't load 32bit drivers, so that's that. Apple has a list of supported models on their Mountain Lion upgrade page, so you can easily check if your computer is capable of running Mountain Lion.

Well we can't blame this particular issue on Jobs' absence as it was already in the planning stages before he died. But there are some decidedly negative vibes coming from the company these days. One in particular is Apple's decision to no longer seek EPEAT certification for any current and future products. I doubt he would have allowed that to happen.

I'm telling you, in a not too distant time, when Apple starts doing more stuff "Steve would never do" (and/or, when Apple inevitably will see some reverse of fortunes, some decline, & partly from following too strictly the then-old ways), we'll hear ~"almost all his views were genius, just not those few; just some rare errors from his ailing health in the last few years, you have to understand".
