Are you using some 3rd party app (Chrome, looking at you) that constantly kicks in the dedicated GPU and ruins battery life?

Try gfxCardStatus and force it to stay on Integrated only.

They could just be making the ATI 7000 series cards available for the 2010 Mac Pro.
Nah the power envelope for the decent 7XXX series don't tie in with what is available on the current Mac Pro line. Thanks for the info but I really think it's support for the new units.

Slow shutdowns are due to state saving. Switch off "open applications after startup" and it shuts down in 3 seconds.

No way. I've got it switched off and it still takes forever to shut down.

"OS 11", as a name, isn't coming anytime soon. There's too much brand value in "OS X", and pedantic nit-picking won't change that. Also, they're placing more marketing value on the informal (cat) name over the version number.

We'll get "OS X 10.10" (perfectly normal in versioning), or even "OS X 11.0".

I had this exact issue, couldn't figure out what was causing it. Apple Genius told me as a last resort to reformat and load all the stuff back onto the HD from scratch. Problem solved.

You do know the X stands for 10 right ?

Yes, they made that very, very clear when they first announced it. That, and the fact that they say "O S Ten" on stage during keynotes.

But as a brand, it's sticking around.

Exactly. Windows went from 1.0, 2.0, 3.0, 3.1, then 95, 98, and Me. NT started at 3.1, then went to 3.5, 4.0, then 2000. Later the two lines merged as XP, Vista, 7, and now 8. Surely OS X can break the "10.9" mold with something like "10.10, 10.11 ...

iPhone OS was changed to IOS when the iPad came out.

"iPhone OS" was a clumsy brand with no real public recognition. That's why they had no problem changing it.

I too love SL. But what is with the hate on social networking? If you don't like it, all you have to do is not sign in and go into settings and have it removed from the NC. Problem solved


But still, SL is still my favorite Mac OS X update. But ML is pretty darn close. I do in fact love having the integration of icloud so my iPhone talks to my Mac

I've seen no changelog (anywhere) that mentions those being addressed.
Funny, I get the iCal errors randomly too. No idea why..

Apple doesn't need to do that. All they need to do is get rid of the number scheme and just call it Mountain Lion, Cougar etc.

Who needs numbers except for dev builds? It's confusing and meh. Just call it Mac OS Cougar or whatever the next release will be.

No need for numbers like 10.9, just my little rant.

Improve start up time for people with regular HDD would be a start, shut down time doesn't bother me too much since I rarely if ever shut down (maybe to go into boot camp)
Graphics drivers and Safari needs to be updated, Safari has graphical glitches after the graphics is switched back and forth between integrated and discrete, doesn't happen with chrome or firefox.
Otherwise, still a very solid and smooth OS, though I do want more than just 4-5 hours battery, at least 6 would make me happy. It was 7 when I bought mine with Snow Leopard 2 years ago, since it's obviously been through many cycle and battery health is less, I only expect it to be about 1 hour less, not a whopping 2-3 hours (forced integrated graphics and 40% brightness)

Maybe that's the case with some software configurations, but for most it's something else. Even on a new Mac where i just finished setting up users after the firts boot it took forever to restart.

As long as it runs great i have no problem even if they call it Mac OS Pussycat.

I really don't get why they started calling it OS X and not, like, Mac OS. Because Mac OS will apply even when they introduce System 11, but OS X won't.

Then don't read it... First of all, though "all the social cr@p" is completely optional, its processes are not, and thus cannot be turned off whether you use it or not. It's a bloatware to say the least. Secondly, Leopard has the "proper" exposŤ, SL is the refinement of it. It looks a lot cleaner than some random windows thrown at your screen. I just don't understand why would Apple want to reverse it with Lion and Mountain Lion. I guess that's the very sign that Apple is going BACKWARDS hence the lack of innovation after SJ got beaten back to his grave.

Still don't like it? Don't read it then, don't even bother to quote. Because this I-hate-SL-buggers-ML-being-latest-and-greatest-wannabe whining has to end.

12D54 and you say it's a lot of fixes...? In Snow Leopard, I guess they fixed a lot more with 3-digit builds. That's why Mountain Lion is still a piece of ****...
