iPhone Calendar Starting on Sunday

Annoyed that the iPhone's Calendar app shows the weeks starting with Monday, although iCal (and most paper calendars) start on Sunday? Here's the answer: go to Settings > General > International and change the Region Format from English to United States.

OS X Mountain Lion 10.8.2 Supplemental Update

Send Article to a Friend

Apple has released OS X Mountain Lion 10.8.2 Supplemental Update, a small update that addresses a few specific issues that weren’t large enough in scope to require a new version number. In particular, it fixes a problem that caused certain Japanese characters to appear incorrectly in Mail, fixes a crash with DVD Player, enables access to secure Web sites in Safari when parental controls are enabled, and fixes an issue that could prevent systems with more than 64 GB of RAM from starting up. (Free, 26.65 MB, available through the Mac App Store or direct download)

Check out the Take Control ebooks that expand on the topic in this article:

Whether you're a relatively new Mac user or someone who remembers the days before there were three colored buttons in the upper left corner of every Mac window, Mountain Lion has something new for you. In this concise book, Macworld focuses on Mountain Lion's new features and adjustments, and demonstrates how you can use them.

Comments about OS X Mountain Lion 10.8.2 Supplemental Update

Groups in Contacts appears to be not supported between Mountain Lion and IOS6.
Groups in Contacts on an iMac display as before but when synching with iPhone 4 or iPad 2 do not display on the iOS device.
I called Apple support and they hadn't heard of any problem but on their Forums, there are several others complaining or wondering also.

Do you know anything about this?
It is not critical, but is very convenient to have groups in the address book, or contacts app.
Thanks!
