New in Mountain Lion: Date & Time Preference Pane
After upgrading from the Golden Master to Apple’s just-released retail version of OS X Mountain Lion, I noticed that my Mac’s time was off by three hours — no big deal, just reset it in System Preferences. However, once in Date & Time, as you can see in the above screen cap, it was apparent that things have changed.
Previously (see the image below), OS X’ Date & Time was based on a NASA image and included place names from Geonames.org. The new look is that of cut Aluminum and the mouse over effect appears to be more detailed.
And, again, Apple has done away with some of the Geonames’ cities offered as choices, mostly forgettable places, unless you just down the road in Erie, PA, like Buffalo, NY.
Otherwise, Date & Time seems unchanged. I wonder if the “new” Date & Time in OS X Mountain Lion is one of Apple’s “over 200 new features”?
I can’t imagine how they’d crack 100 let alone surpass 200 without including such banalities…
