Looking for a physical copy of Apple’s latest OS offering? Sorry folks, It’s download only.
For those who were celebratory of Apple’s novel idea to release their last OS via USB sticks, Apple has taken it one step further. Their latest OS offering Mountain Lion will be completely devoid of any physical media. The OS, according to Engadget will only be available via a download from the iTunes Store.
According to Apple, their $69 USB stick alternative to downloading their previous OS was “ an interesting test, but it [...] the App Store was just fine for getting the new OS”.
If you’re among those who are on the lower end of the broadband speed spectrum looks like the local Starbucks will see you pitching tents there soon.
