Apple has just pushed out OS X Mountain Lion 10.8.2 just moments after releasing iOS 6 to the general public. The update makes available a variety of features that put OS X on par with iOS, namely Facebook integration inside Notification Center, Game Center, Contacts, and photo-sharing. 10.8.2 also includes Power Nap support for late 2010 MacBook Airs, as well as consolidated AppleIDs and phone numbers — which means that iMessages sent to your phone number will now also appear in Messages on your Mac.
