Apple's next iteration of Mac OS X: Mountain Lion Video Transcript
Hi. I'm Kent German, senior managing editor here at CNET. Today I'm gonna talk to you about mountain lion which is the latest version of Mac's OS10. So walk you through a few of those. First is the notification. On the Mac, you actually take to your 2 fingers, place it on the end of the pad and drag it over and you see a notification slide one miss message there and then you could just slide it back. Now we do have notes as well. The experience is about the same but bigger screen allows you a little more space so you can see all your notes here on the side. Can drop photos in and you got a multiple notes, you got a lot more space for typing. So basically the same is what you're use to on IOS but just here in OS 10. The next app we'll talk about is messaging. Yeah this replaces iChat. So you see the interface is a lot similar. You know the messages appear on either side in the little bubbles. Bigger space of course means more. You can see all your chat here on the side. You can drag in photos, you can drag in contacts, you can drag in videos and they will. . All these sents, as long as you're online you can chat with an iPhone with an iPhone phone number or you can use an e-mail address if they're using an iPad or an iPad touch. Next app is reminders. This is another thing you'll get, you notice from IOS Lion. You can see the full calendar over here so you can just click on individual days so we can show you the reminders for those days or you can make new list, you can set by time, by day, if you'll get reminders. Unlike that IOS where there's no GO sense here so I mean that's really more appropriate for a strictly mobile device anyway. We're also gonna find enhance Twitter integration, click on that. It has a little notepad and there's a little paperclip and it puts it all in so very easy to use. Nice to be able to have that. Few other things that come new with Mountain Lion versus share sheets that enables you to share links, photos, directly from the app. So it saves a lot of stuff. You also have game center integration so that's a lot deeper integration and you do have something called key caper which is enhance security features from Apple. Developers can also sign up for a unique ID so they have an Apple developer ID and so then it sort of giving allowable security. So that's nice. Last couple things are airplane (??) that enables you to take whatever is on your Mac, link it to Apple TV and put it on a TV screen. I can't show you that because it's not enabled yet on this particular laptop but we'll be able to look at that later. And then of course it's iCloud integration. So this is really about unifying user experience whether you're on a Mac, whether you're on a mobile device, iPad whatever it might be. So that is developers build at Mountain Lion, the latest version of Mac OS 10
