Does airplay only allow mirroring?
Can't you use a 2nd screen wirelessly as an expansion of your screen instead of mirroring?

Also, the new tab view of safari seems awesome But apple keeps adding new multi-touch gestures and I wonder if they will work well together...

What are you talking about? that's how it works, you start from the right of the track pad and swipe left.

Or, in this case, you start with your fingers right off the edge of the pad and the screen still scrolls

How was it not a surprise? How would mac users expect that it would be pulled, particularly since ML doesn't run on some machines?

It's not a surprise because Apple has discontinued every previous version of OS X once a new one has been released. The only exception that I'm aware of was 10.6, as it was a prerequisite for 10.7.

Is display mirroring not available on all machines?
I have an iMac 3.06 GHz Intel Core 2 Duo and I can't seem to get it to Airplay/mirror to either of my Apple TV's.

My iPad does this without problems.

Just finished installing on my iMac; have dropped the installer on an SD card and am now installing on my laptop.

Seems nice so far; it's quicker and feels very smooth and solid. Fantastic for the price

However, bit surprised by the lack of support for Airplay mirroring for a Mid-2010 iMac!

Not true. Earlier versions may have been harder to find but they were still available from Apple.

One big hiccup for a lot of folks I know is installing the cmd line tools without a pay developer account. Apple was nice enough to provide me with a link to the dmg, however I had to install it manually from terminal (individual package files) since the package itself looks for 10.7 only and won't install on 10.8. You could also make symbolic links to the versions of the tools within XCode.app itself, but this is much easier. Here's what I got from the Apple Dev Center:

Re: Xcode

Hello XXX,

Thank you for taking the time to speak to me regarding the Xcode issue you are experiencing.

I can confirm that there is an error when attempting to download Command Line Tools for OS X 10.8 through Xcode. For now, the work-around is to go to the download site and download it from there. The URL is below:

https://developer.apple.com/download...ion?name=Xcode

I apologize for the issues you experienced.

Best regards,

Eduardo
Apple Developer Program Support
Hope this helps some folks.....

I believe that you had to call Apple and explicitly ask for them; they weren't listed on the site. Presumably it's the same for 10.7 now.

I would at least upgrade RAM to 4GB. 2GB should only be used with Tiger or Leopard. Mountain Lion is superior to Lion hands down. There is simply no debating that.

If you can't upgrade your RAM then i suggest downgrading to Snow Leopard for a better experience.

$20 is that difficult to cough up and justify to you for an OS upgrade? *shakes head*

Mountain Lion.

Wow - thanks Apple what a big difference, so much faster than Lion, quick to download and install, took all of 40 minutes from start to finish.

Its slick and is what Lion should have been 12 months ago.

Happy Happy Happy.

No new ones for me. I figured that they would add a Mountain Lion wallpaper. The old Lion wallpaper is still there. I am upset that my Fliqlo clock screensaver doesn't work anymore.

It's dumb I'll give you that, but I can't see any reason not to upgrade unless there really is some bit of stoneage software that can't run on your machine.
