It looks like a substantial update. I just hope that it also provides better battery life. Because it's been awful in comparison to Snow Leopard and Lion.

That's so awesome! Very Happy

I could care less about the Facebook stuff though. I kinda hate that company and their sign in tactics anymore.

Mountain Lion has been really stable for me, but I'm loving all of these updates today.

Why can't you pause or stop and update anymore? I accidently hit update now it's downloading the new iTunes and iMovie I left there. It's gonna take forever. I dont' see any options to pause or stop a download anymore with ML.

No problems with the update. I'm also really appreciating iMessage in ML. And what I like best, it's probably starting to scare AT&T and Verizon. I mean, why is even SMS a feature to be sold anymore? It's just data anyways, right?

Yep about time one of them take the 1st step and stop charging for texting, the other sheep will then follow.

You can still pause them in Launchpad. Just click on the icon to pause or restart them.

I've been completely satisfied with Mountain Lion to this point. I mean, it's given me a little more faith back after Lion. Which felt forced and glitchy on a couple levels.

I noticed I could with all the apps but couldn't seem to find any option for OS/Ilife system updates.


I did figure out one way to pause it but not sure its a great idea. I just put my computer to sleep. Very Happy
