Mountain Lion now gets a notification center, much like iOS (sense a pattern here?). You can view your messages, act on them, create them. This includes the ability to create messages for Facebook (aka Status updates) and Twitter (aka Tweets). The notification center also supports voice dictation, which is built into the OS. You can swipe the notifications on or off screen.

Can you please stop using the world "Blitz". It is short for "Blitzkrieg", the propaganda name for multiple heinous attacks by Nazi Germany on its neighboring countries. The English language is so rich in words that you do not have to fall back on Nazi jargon to make a point. How uneducated are the folks allowed to be who write, edit, and publish such articles?
