Apple has released MacBook Air and MacBook Pro Update 2.0 for all laptop models introduced in June 2012: both 13- and 15-inch sizes of the MacBook Pro, the MacBook Pro with Retina Display, and both the 11- and 13-inch versions of the MacBook Air. The minimal release notes say that this release “includes graphics performance and reliability enhancements and improves compatibility with some USB devices.” Requiring OS X 10.8.2 Mountain Lion, the update should appear in the App Store’s Updates screen for affected models, or you can download it directly from Apple’s Web site. If you have one of these models still running 10.7 Lion, it would seem that an upgrade to Mountain Lion would be the only way to take advantage of the update. (Free, 127.07 MB)
iCal Alerts You Can't Miss
Did you miss that tiny little iCal alert dialog? Use a more prominent Open File alarm.
First save an image, text file, sound, or movie that will really fill your screen and grab your attention.
Select an iCal event and choose Open File as the alert type. Choose your unmissable file as the one to open.
Set more alerts with more files to open for the same event if you like. You won't miss an appointment with one of these alerts!

After clicking Download on the Apple page http://support.apple.com/kb/DL1609 I receive an error.
Apple has pulled it.
I tried Software Update (a.k.a. MAS) on my new MacBook Air, and there is no sign of it there either.
I've opened a case to find out what happened to it.
