MacBook Air Innards Revealed, Microsoft Wants Yahoo and Your iPod Won't Kill You

 

It's what's on the inside that counts: iFixit has a detailed breakdown of the inside of the new MacBook Air. Just think, it only takes the removal of 19 screws to replace the battery.

 

I'll buy that for $44.6 billion: Microsoft's plans of knocking Google off it's internet pedestal would get a huge boost if their unsolicited offer to purchase Yahoo is accepting. Yahoo has not yet commented on the offer. Maybe Microsoft could throw in a few Zunes to sweeten the deal.

 

iPod pacemaker friendly: If you have a pacemaker it is unlikely that your iPod will kill you according to the US FDA. They haven't tested the Zune yet, so maybe we should call Yahoo and warn them. Just in case.

 

Assistive Ware launches site: AssistiveGaming.com has been launched to provide information to Mac users with physical disabilities on how to enjoy the latest Mac OSX games.

 

And finally: The parody Tom Cruise wants you to see.

oh my word! that's ridiculous! why would anyone pay an extra $1000 bucks to get LESS space???!!!! SURE it has no moving parts but ONE THOUSAND DOLLARS!!! its hard for me to imagine someone spending $3,000 on a laptop that has 64 gigs of space, a crappy graphics card, 2gigs of memory a fairly slow processor, only one usb port, and no optical drive JUST BECAUSE it is really THIN!!! the Air is cool but I wish they had come out with a tablet.

Wait a second!!! iFixit says that the macbook air has a spinning hard disk! I thought it used a flash based hard drive!!!! (maybe I that was just the rumor and never came true.... i just assumed....) somebody explain.

The standard configuration of the MBA is a 80GB 4,200 rpm ATA hard drive. There is a 64GB flash drive option available for $999.

no.
the $999 option is a 64 gb solid state drive. Thats why the price skyrockets to 3000.

I've been using Yahoo! since my first visits on the internet in '95 or '96. Now it's probably going to get ruined for Mac users because MS is probably going to dictate the usage of their proprietary technology like windows media 11 and god knows what else.

Have a trip down memory lane:

In what seems to be another Microsoft attempt to kill the internet. I would have to disagree!! Yahoo will be destroyed by MS and it's Media-crap ideas. Let's all go buy Google and have some fun laughing in Yahoo's face for being such fools and watch their website go down the drain...Yahoo go down the hole..bye bye!
