Daring Fireball – Mountain Lion

February 16, 2012

The recurring theme: Apple is fighting against cruft — inconsistencies and oddities that have accumulated over the years, which made sense at one point but no longer — like managing to-dos in iCal because CalDAV was being used to sync them to a server or notes in Mail because IMAP was the syncing back-end. The changes and additions in Mountain Lion are in a consistent vein: making things simpler and more obvious, closer to how things should be rather than simply how they always have been.

This is an awful lot of effort and attention in order to brief what I’m guessing is a list of a dozen or two writers and journalists. It’s Phil Schiller, spending an entire week on the East Coast, repeating this presentation over and over to a series of audiences of one. There was no less effort put into the preparation of this presentation than there would have been if it had been the WWDC keynote address.

Mini-Apple event given for John Gruber:  A preview of OSX Mountain Lion.

Wow.

From an enterprise development perspective I do wonder if there will ever be any support for an private enterprise iCloud or Notification Center inside the firewall.
