Apple Announces OS X Mountain Lion With New Features (Video)

If you use iMessage on your iPhone or iPad, you would probably know what to do with this. iMessages on Mac allows you to chat unlimited with your friends or families, no matter what platform they are on: iPad, iPhone, or Mac.

A new feature that is being implemented is called Notification Center. Just a simple swipe to the left will reveal a sidebar coming out of the desktop, on the right to reveal a Notification Center.
