Downloaded the Messages Beta application. Happy to see this app coming. I imagine there are millions of Mac users all trying to try the service at once, and it is beta, so there might be some glitches.

So far, application is downloaded and installed, I'm at screen trying to log into my Apple ID, and it's been spinning for about 5 minutes now.

Watching the video about Mountain Lion now (Still can't log into Apple ID through Messages).

Saw the part about Game Centre on the Mac. Would be neat if it could create "Groups" of friends, and then we create an ehMac Group to have regular game night again. :)

I'll upgrade just for AirPlay Mirroring alone. :)

I've got my iMac in my basement. A bit over a year ago, I completely renovated my basement, installed a new home theatre, and I wanted to be able to stream my Mac's video to the TV. I had the crew install a long HDMI cable from where my iMac was, to the home theatre. Being a cheap dutch guy, I ordered the long HDMI cable myself, as I could save some money. I thought I was ordering the thickest gauge cable (The one with the highest number), but instead, I ordered a very thin gauge cable and unfortunately it can't carry the signal consistently.

It's always bummed me out, but now with Airplay Mirroring, this will be awesome! Getting a wireless keyboard and Magic Trackpad, will be able to do stuff on the Mac, on my home theatre. :clap:

I think I would have to agree. streaming from the Mac to my AppleTV will be awesome with not having to use any cables what so ever.


BTW I got the messages installed, logged in and working (Although my wife won't talk to me right now, go figure)

I agree with the sentiment regarding AirPlay Mirroring. That feature alone is worth the price of admission. I also like the separation for reminders from iCal. It always felt tacked on, never like the two were meant to be integrated.

Well... that came outta nowhere, hey?

Apart from all of the iOS feature-ish stuff and the slow-motion merger of iOS and OS X (iOSX ?), this quote from John Gruber / Daring Fireball makes me hopeful:
...the recurring theme: Apple is fighting against cruft inconsistencies and oddities that have accumulated over the years, which made sense at one point but no longer like managing to-dos in iCal (because CalDAV was being used to sync them to a server) or notes in Mail (because IMAP was the syncing back-end). The changes and additions in Mountain Lion are in a consistent vein: making things simpler and more obvious, closer to how things should be rather than simply how they always have been.
Still, the only thing that's going to get me even a little bit excited isn't another cat. I need my iWork (Keynote/Pages and... ah, jeez... what's that third thing... nope. Sorry. don't remember. Oops.) fix.
