The Engadget Show 30: DJ Spooky, Google, Toy Fair and a pinball museum

Friday, February 24th, 2012
The Engadget Show has just hit the big 3-0, and to celebrate, we’re stretching out our legs in a more spacious locale. Yep, we’re hitting the Times Center this month, but don’t worry, we’ve got plenty of show to fill up the space. We’ll be kicking things off by checking out February’s hottest gadgets, including the Droid 4, AT&T’s Galaxy Note, the PlayStation Vita and Apple’s newly announced OS X Mountain Lion.

Next up, Brian takes a trip to Toy Fair in NYC and comes back with a table full of some of the coolest products of the show — helicopter flying and water pellet gunfire ensue. Then we head to Asbury Park, NJ to check out the Silverball Museum, for some Springsteen-worshiping pinball action, and Michael Gorman visits the Googleplex in Mountain View, to get to the bottom of Google Translate. We cap the show off with a performance and conversation with DJ Spooky, who tells us all about his iPad app and his latest project, The Book of Ice.

Hosts: Tim Stevens, Brian Heater
Special guests: DJ Spooky, Josh Estelle
Producer: Guy Streit
Director: Michelle Stahl
Executive Producers: Joshua Fruhlinger, Brian Heater and Michael Rubens

OS X Mountain Lion to be download-only, USB stick going the way of the dodo

OS X Mountain Lion to be Mac App Store exclusive, USB stick going the way of the dodo

Last time around, Apple was cognizant not everyone has broadband to download a 4GB OS, offering solace to those with slow internet with a (pricey $69) USB stick alternative. Times change though, as Cupertino’s confirmed to Pocket-lint that the recently unveiled OS X Mountain Lion won’t be offered with a physical counterpart. Apple’s reasoning? “It was an interesting test, but it turns out the App Store was just fine for getting the new OS.” So there’s that. High time you took the plunge and upgraded to broadband apparently, or contemplated moving within the vicinity of an Apple Retail Store’s willing WiFi. That or you could just buy a new machine. Your call.

OS X Messages: This Is the Future of IM [Video]

Thursday, February 16th, 2012
AIM, Gchat, FaceTime, and iMessage—too many ways to communicate between too many different devices. Not anymore. The new Messages app—available as a beta from OS X 10.8 Mountain Lion—fixes that. This is how our fingers will talk now. More »

Apple drops the ‘Mac’ from OS X Lion, Mountain Lion

Thursday, February 16th, 2012

Clearly, cats are in. But Mac, it seems, is out. Apple has quietly dropped the Mac name from its latest OS X Mountain Lion operating system, while also retroactively changing the Lion branding on its website. While it’s clearly a marketing move and won’t affect the user experience, it looks like Cupertino is further defining the line between hardware and software — Mac is hardware, OS X is software, and that’s the end of that. Apple purists will need to download the developer preview of Lion to see the change reflected on the OS side of things, though that could always change with 10.7.4. Hit up the source link to see for yourself.
