Apple to axe Messages on OS X Lion from December 14th

Want to carry on using iMessages on your Mac? You'll have to upgrade to Mountain Lion if you haven't done so already

Apple has informed customers that its Messages Beta program for OS X Lion will be terminated on December 14th.

Apple fans who want to carry on using the Messages service will have to fork out £14 for the OS X Mountain Lion upgrade from the App Store, although those with Macs too old to run it will be left in an iMessaging lurch.

Head on over to the App Store if you fancy upgrading or add a new Mac to your list to Santa if you feel like something new and shiny this Christmas.
