1. Mountain Lion Mac OS X 10.8:
Amongst a heap of ‘new features’ that we are told about with every new version of Mac OS X is a great one if you have an Apple TV — the little wireless gizmo that connects to your LCD TV. Now anything on the screen of your Mac can be mirrored the telly. A video you are watching, an iPhoto slideshow etc. All can be streamed to the telly by clicking the little icon at the top right of the screen and choosing Apple TV. Magic!

2. Learn a Language:
Becoming multilingual can be done at home on your Mac. BUSUU is free too and has courses and apps for mobile devices and computers.
