Apple Unveils Mountain Lion OS
6:00 AM | Cord Kruse | 6 comments

Last week Apple unveiled OS X Mountain Lion. The
latest iteration of Apple's Mac operating system will include a variety of features inspired by the popular iPad handheld device. Among the new additions is the Game Center, which will help players set up muiltplayer games, find friends, track high scores, and discover new titles.

Game Center
Mac gets in on the game. The Mac is about to go up against iPad, iPhone, and iPod touch — in a friendly Game Center way. Now it’s a bigger playing field with even more competition. Just create a Game Center account with your Apple ID. Then sign in and you’re in. Friends will find you fast, and you’ll track them down easily. Get a multiplayer game started or go up against people you don’t know. Check out leaderboards and see how your high score ranks against opponents’ scores around the world. And discover new games based on the ones you and your friends already play.

Gatekeeper
A more secure Mac. Under your control. Gatekeeper in OS X Mountain Lion makes the Mac safer than ever. It helps prevent you from unknowingly downloading and installing malicious software. And it gives you control over which applications to download and run on your Mac. Now you can choose from three security options. You can download and run applications from anywhere, just as in OS X Lion. To be even safer, download and run apps from the Mac App Store and apps with a Developer ID. Or download and run only apps from the Mac App Store — the safest setting of all. Gatekeeper lets you decide which setting is best for you.

Mountain Lion is scheduled for release this summer. Read more about the OS at the link below.
