Apple’s newest operating system, Mountain Lion, has finally arrived. Let’s take a look at the new features it will bring to your Mac: Mountain Lion is more compatible with other iDevices than past operating systems. iCloud plays a much greater role, allowing for easy syncing of media, calendars and contacts. A few new apps let you sync messages, reminders and notes between devices as well. The new OS is more social too, with integration for both Facebook and Twitter and with multiplayer gameplay through the iOS Game Center. It also has a new notification center that pops up in the right hand corner and looks very similar to the notifications on iOS5. Safari gets a few updates too. A copy of Mountain Lion costs 19.99 at the Mac App Store and can be downloaded to multiple Macs after purchase, but you have to be running the latest version of Snow Leopard or Lion to install it.
