OS X Mountain Lion

Apple has recently announced their newest operating system, namely OS X Mountain Lion. From what I could see all that is new is a lot of new applications.  It's designed to work better with Apple's iCloud, and they took a lot of queues from the iPad in how the new applications work. New applications include reminders, notes, a notification center, "Share Sheets" (which allows you to easily share web pages), a new Twitter application, a game center, Airplay streaming from your Mac to your Apple TV, what looks to be an anti-virus anti-malware program, and a new messaging application (which allows you to send messages to anyone who has a Mac, iPhone/iPod with iOS 5, or an iPad. Sadly it doesn't look like they did much with the back end, but hopefully they have and they'll release that information soon.
