Apple released its new Mountain Lion software yesterday but very few people have been able to download it.

The problem is that Jobs' Mob's servers have been thumped by countless fanboys who have to by the latest software because Apple told them too and they are thinking different. Apple put up patronising messages reminding fanboys that they need to be patent.  It did not matter if they had it now because the software was not going to go off.
