OS X Mountain Lion update includes “do not disturb” feature for notifications

The features is meant to block all notifications and banners in order to allow the user to focus entirely on the current work without being buzzed by emails, alerts, iMessages, or other notifications.

The option can be activated with a mouse click on the menu bar or a left swipe on a trackpad and is marked by the appearance of a crescent moon symbol on the top right of the menu bar.

And while the option is featured in the Mountain Lion, it is also expected to come as an iOS 6 upgrade.

The new OS X Mountain Lion is scheduled for a “late summer 2012” and the iOS 6 is expected to arrive at the June WWDC event.
