Apple To Make Mac More Like iPad

Apple CEO Tim Cook revealed yesterday that Apple’s latest operating system, Mountain Lion OS X, is inspired by the iPad.

The system, which comes out this summer, will let you centralize all of your goings on through Apple’s iCloud. Apple explains on its site: “In OS X Mountain Lion, sign in once with your Apple ID and iCloud is automatically set up across your Mac. That means right away iCloud keeps your mail, calendars, contacts, documents, and more up to date on every device you use. So when you add, delete, or edit something on your Mac, it happens on your iPad, iPhone, and iPod touch. And vice versa.”

Cook told The Wall Street Journal: “We see that people are in love with a lot of apps and functionality here. Anywhere where that makes sense, we are going to move that over to Mac.”
