    I just installed the trial version of airparrot and it works, so, can i please get a refund so I may purchase this app.  Mirroring is the ONLY reason i upgraded from snow leopard to mountain lion.

    If you can't admit Apple was underhanded in this matter, then you are blinding yourself/being a typical Apple fanboy "Apple cannot do wrong". Sure, somewhere they left the tidbits regarding what works and what doesn't in the new OS.

     

    You need to work on your reading comprehension.  All the information is out there, you just have to take the time and read it.

    The fact is they did this on purpose so majority of users wouldn't notice.

     

    Please provide some evidence that this was done on purpose.

    So, you expect every company to list all the support tech specs directly in their advertising copy?  That's idiotic.  Every commercial and advertisement would be paragraphs long.  "Clearly" means the information is available for anyone who goes looking for it.  If you didn't find it, then you didn't look for it.  That's your fault, bro.

    There's nothing underhand about this and I am no Apple kool aid drinker, I've had my beefs with Apple in the past and am sure I will have more in the future.

     

    The sneak peak Apple has had for OS X Mountain Lion has been available for ages with system requirements links etc. Your inability to follow or research those links are not Apple's fault.

     

    If this was a Microsoft forum, would you be complaining that Windows 8 doesn't offer touch capabilities on the PC you bought just last year?

     

    The fact that most of Mountain Lion's features are available on 2007 onward iMacs (5 year old machines) shows Apple's commitment to their users. Try running Windows 8 on a 5 year old PC - good luck with that one!

    You won't get a refund by posting here.  This is a user forum that Apple does not read.

    And that will get me full touch capabilities AC?

     

    Read my full thread and take it in the context of content (earlier ref to touch capabilities).

    Dropping support for iPad ? Drop support for my Core2 iMac? Why? whats up with apple lately? Thats nearly £2000 down the drain!

     

    I bought a Mac Mini late last year because i knew how greedy apple are getting; Good software; Greedy Company.

     

    Steve Was NEVER this greedy, He'd be ashamed!

     

    As for Airplay support, it's the same with Siri and the 4S, everyone knows it can even run on a 3GS; But apple will deny it as long as they live because it makes them money.

    No, and it's a good parallel in a way - older hardware supported but not necessarily all features.

     

    Apologies if I took it out of context.

    Though I agree that the info was made easily available, I also agree that I (who would have been in the same boat with a mid 2010 MBP) am responsible to make sure things will work before I buy. For this reason I decided (before the release of ML) to wait at least 48 hours to buy to let others like you to test it. I'm hoping that upgrades or fixes will follow. Again, I've been looking for the past few days, and it took some time for me to find the literature, but once you find it, how does one know if it's accurate? You only know once its out there being used.

    Brilliant strategy.  Waiting a few weeks or even a month so others can serve as the beta testers is usually the best idea.

    I got lucky and got a new MBP this Jan.  I realize that one could dig through information and find this out but I would be hot too if I had a mac that did not support Airplay.  One of those sitatuions I can see both sides of the argument.

    Why do you need evidence? You cannot see the reasoning behind why they left this out nor can understand what I am saying, unless you are indeed trolling. I'll put it in lamens terms: The more important information they bury, the more copies they will sell, regardless if it works on a users machine or not. It doesn't take a genius to figure this out. I'm not arguing that they didn't warn you, I'm arguing they were underhanded.
