MoLo, YOLO; Mountain Lion Review

Lucky for us Apple decided to release the dot eight version of OS X to celebrate inThirty’s second year and 52nd episode. Justin likes to live on the edge so he’s been playing with the betas, but Chaim, Harry, and special guest Apple aficionado Drew Pitchford (the guy who correctly predicted Mountain Lion’s release date before any of the rumor sites) finally get the gold version on their machines.

We hunt down the most significant changes in Mountain Lion, give our first impressions of the GUI, compare it to its predecessor Lion, discuss the impact of iOS on Apple’s latest feline-themed desktop release, and all gasp as Harry gives Android credit for a specific feature of Apple’s latest and greatest. We do all that in thirty minutes, woah.

Our respect to Drake for this episode’s title and to Snoop for showing his support of 10.7 by donning the Lion moniker.

Don’t forget to celebrate with us and enter our 1 year anniversary giveaway for a chance to win a copy of the awesome Pocket Casts podcatcher app.

Woz Two

Once you Woz, you can’t stop. This is the second part of our epic Wozerview and also our 30th inThirty. Woz walks us through the tech he uses on a daily basis and gives his take on Android’s user interface design and the best, and worst, Android devices. We ask Woz to weigh in on SOPA and also find out how he feels about patents and the impact they have on product development.

And finally, we find out why Apple’s stuck with the one button mouse as long as it has. Again, thank you Steve!
