80 Mountain Lion Tips & Tricks

 This article by Cory Bohon is presented on the Mac|Life web site.

Some of the 80 Tips & Tricks are: 

  1. App Store: Software Updates – App Store now the one stop shop for geting and updating applications including OS X updates.  New updates automatic and notifications come from the Notification Center.
  2. Contacts: uses iPhoto, Aperture ore iSight camera to get photos for contacts.  (Note:  Contacts is now the new name for Address Book.)
  3. Contacts:  Now click on email address or phone number to send an iMessage.
  4. Reminders:  Use Reminders to set location alerts.  Just click on the “i” in the reminder box.
  5. Mail:  Setting Rules – New options for creating mail-filtering rules including “Sender is Vip and “attachment Type.”
  6. QuickTime Player: QuickTime Gets Social – Share button now for several new sharing options including videos to YouTube, Vimeo, Flickr, Facebook and more.
  7. Preview – Will now insert pages into PDFs, from you scanner, a file, or a blank page.
  8. Parental Controls – More – Seting parental controls will now let yo specify Game Center and Message limitations.
Of course, this is only 1/10th of the items listed.  I am not sure that these should be called Tips & Tricks, but I did learn some new features of Mountain Lion (OS X 10.8), perhaps you will too.
