Apple’s Mountain Lion (OS X 10.8), released last month has been wildly popular. I have really enjoyed using the Messages feature on my Mac while I am working in the office. It is so handy to text, and have those texts sync with the iPhone and iPad.
Reportedly, though, there have been battery life issues for MacBook users, and from what I can tell, it is affecting those users who own the new Retina MacBook Pro. Battery life is reported to be diminished by up to 38 percent. That is significant.
Apple has been working on a fix, and they have already released OS X 10.8.1 to the Apple developer community. OS X 10.8.1 should be released to the general population soon.
