    I have a question for some of you more seasoned vets out there..I recently just updated my macbook pro 15 in. 2012 with a 256 samsung 840pro,16 gb ram, old hard drive into the optical bay blah blah, anyway my question is i did a fresh install of mountain lion (twice actually,) i formatted and partitioned the ssd before reinstalling the osx, and i just noticed that my old bookmarks are still intact? How the ****? lol. Am i missing something? Did i do something wrong? or is this just some sort of back up feature

    Did you use the migration assistant when you started up OSX after you reinstalled it?

    Sounds like it... as soon as you turn on iCloud on a new install it will pull in your iCloud bookmarks.
