The current operating system, called Lion, is a great example of how Apple began to merge the PC and tablet.
Mountain Lion further blurs the lines.
So how is Apple doing it? We tok a look at the ways your desktop is getting more tablet-like.
Dictionary In The Cloud
Previously, the custom iOS dictionary lived separately on your iPhone and iPad. With Mountain Lion and iOS 6 the dictionary and your additions can be accessed across multiple devices including your computer.
Documents In The Cloud
Documents in the cloud allows you to keep the latest version of your documents on your Mac, iPad, iPhone, and iPod touch. When you edit a document, the changes appear across all your devices.
This is Apple's Google Docs killer. But the ability to pick up where you left off is killer. Imagine playing a game on your iPad, moving to your computer, and then picking up where you left off the heading out the door and playing the same game on you iPhone.
We've always wished we could continue text conversations from our iPhone onto our iPad or MacBook. Now we can with iMessages.
Yes, we know the Messages Beta was already on the Mac and Messages was on the iPad last year but it wasn't seamless.
We couldn't just put our phone down and look at our iPad and see new messages unless someone was texting our Apple ID. Now that we can receive messages from a phone number on all our devices this is possible.
