According to Nilay Patel at The Verge, Apple has announced the developer preview of OS X 10.8 Mountain Lion. It is the next iteration in the Mac operating system but ‘Mac’ is conspicuously absent in its name. Mountain Lion includes new features such as Notification Center, AirPlay mirroring, and iMessage, all staples of the iOS operating system. Apple is taking another step toward the convergence of its Mac and iOS operating systems.
