Easter eggs are fun little hidden features that many developers sneak into apps. We’ve seen Easter eggs from Apple before like on the Text Edit icon. It’s a little ode to Steve Jobs’ “Crazy Ones.” Well, the first easter egg has appeared within Mountain Lion, and it’s awesome.
When downloading an app from the Mac App Store, go to the applications folder in Finder and click list view. you’ll see the download date appear as January 24, 1984. For those unaware, this was the date that Steve Jobs introduced the first Macintosh.
We’ll be on the lookout for more hidden Mountain Lion easter eggs!
