| No Comments

Apple previewed their latest operating system update, OS X 10.8 or "Mountain Lion," to developers and press Thursday, according to the BBC.

OS X 10.8 boasts a number of new features that push along the convergence between Macs and Apples iOS devices, such as a Notification Center, a messaging application that mimic's the app on iOS and replaces iChat, and full integration with Twitter via an omnipresent "share" button.

The Washington Post also notes that Mountain Lion contains a new feature called "Gatekeeper", which promises to protect Mac users from Malware by only allowing the download of applications from developers certified by Apple.

The tech giant has not announced a price for the upgrade but slated it's release to consumers for "Late Summer 2012."
