I just upgraded to the New Mountain Lion on my new MacBook Pro overnight and this morning. I wanted to share the immediate results I have found so far with all of you Mac Lovers.
After it finally came up, the first thing I noticed was a new symbol in the upper right hand corner of my menu bar. I was tickled to find that my calendar events for the day pop out when I click on it. Yeah! I no longer have to launch Calendar in order to see what is up for my day. I can now just click that little symbol and viola! it shows me what I need to do.
The next thing to pop up were two new images in my dock-reminders and notes. A nice way to keep lists in my face, and quick to access. I really love that everything is right there now, and I don't have to open any programs to see what I need to be doing.
Next, when I opened my email program I got this message:
It looks like there are some nice new features in email that can come in handy. Oh! While I was writing this I got a little pop-up message on the top right of my screen with info about a new email I just received. Nice! It came in and went out with a small reminder, and wasn't too intrusive.
I am looking forward to seeing some more nifty changes as my day goes along with some of the work I will do. Apple promises a faster experience, and it looks to hold true so far.
Has anyone else uploaded Mountain Lion? I would love to hear what you have discovered so far.
