Apple has released OS X Mountain Lion 10.8. and if notification centre hasn’t informed you it’s there, load up the App Store and check for updates. A manual update package is also available.
Another neat feature of Mountain Lion is the ability to keep your text documents in iCloud. This seems to be a trend now with ML overall, there’s no real big killer feature but lot’s of little handy things that make sense. I’m not on iOS6 yet but i’d bet they synch up nicely. Handy.. very handy.
Dictation and speech is one of the key features for Mountain Lion. Don’t expect Siri like searching functionality but more a handy feature to get down ideas with a double tap of your shortcut key. It might be basic but being able to dictate anywhere is handy and much easier than the Dragon Express “send too method”
Personally for me it’s been awhile since I last delved into the murky waters of creating my very own Hackintosh. I never seem to be able to get the right combination of hardware when you start looking at all the PC components out there you can potentially used to build your own PC which is Mac-based it easy to get overwhelmed. But that hasn’t stopped the active community over at tonymacx86.
