Will you be switching to OS X Mountain Lion for Mac? [Poll]

Will you be switching to OS X Mountain Lion for Mac? [Poll]

What do you think of OS X 10.8 Mountain Lion?

Apple shocked the tech geek community with this morning's surprise announcement of OS X Mountain Lion where they once again brought iPad and iPhone features "back to the Mac", including Messages, Reminders, Notification Center and more.

There's no word on Siri, Apple's voice controlled assistant, for Mac yet, but then again there's no word on Siri for iPad 3 yet either.

Apple is taking their time and doing what they do best -- seeding interest and creating buzz. They're excellent at it, just look at all the coverage they're getting this morning without even holding one of their famous keynotes!

And we want to know how its working.

If you're a Mac user, is this a no-brainer, instant-update for you when it's available, or would you rather Apple kept OS X and iOS separate and distinct?

If you're a Windows user, does anything you've seen today tempt you to make the switch to Mac, or does the idea of iOS-style stuff on your desktop make you even less likely to make the change?

If you're undecided, if you're waiting to see more, what precisely would Apple have to do to win you over to Mountain Lion?

You know the drill, vote in the poll above and give us your thoughts in the comments below!

How to use the 'rule of thirds' to take more striking photos with your iPhone

The iPhone has often been called the "best camera" because it's the one most of us have with us most of the time. But it takes more than just a great camera or lens to produce great photography. One of the most important, yet most difficult, elements in creating great photographs is composition - where your subject is placed and how it's related to its surroundings. A great starting point for developing composition is to understand the rule of "thirds".

Note: If you're using an iPod touch or iPad, the concepts and methods are all the same, so please follow along as well!
