CNET's Josh Lowensohn reported:

As a quick recap, the US$19.99 software update brings a handful of iOS features to Macs, including the notes and reminders apps. It adds a few other things, like Twitter integration, Apple's Game Center and iMessage services. There's also a new security feature called Gatekeeper, designed to fend off malware by controlling what applications can and cannot be installed.

Mountain Lion will be available as a download only at the Mac App Store.
