Craig was sucked into the endless vortex of tech at an early age, only to be spat back out babbling things like "phase-locked-loop crystal oscillators!". Mostly this receives a pat on the head from the listener, followed closely by a question about what laptop they should buy.

As speculated, during its earnings call today Apple revealed that Mountain Lion would be released 25 July, US time, following the exact same pattern as its Lion release.

CNET's Josh Lowensohn reported:

As a quick recap, the US$19.99 software update brings a handful of iOS features to Macs, including the notes and reminders apps. It adds a few other things, like Twitter integration, Apple's Game Center and iMessage services. There's also a new security feature called Gatekeeper, designed to fend off malware by controlling what applications can and cannot be installed.

Mountain Lion will be available as a download only at the Mac App Store.
