It seems inevitable that after a major product announcement like the twin MacBook Air models released by Apple on Wednesday, early adopters always find some bugaboo to complain about. This time it’s a most curious one, since the new diskless models are shipping without Adobe Flash installed.
Apple was firing with all chambers on Wednesday, with the majority of the focus on its “Back to the Mac” media event. But the company also found time to unleash a few software updates and even quietly offer a speed bump on its MacBook Pro.
We walked out of Apple's "Back to the Mac" event today with a shiny new MacBook Air on loan from the mad scientists at Cupertino. In fact, I'm writing this on the new 11.6-inch, 1.4GHz Core 2 Duo MacBook Air right now. And it's rad.
Follow the jump to learn more about the new Air, and watch a video comparing its super-speedy application launching against a brand-new 15-inch Core i7 MacBook Pro with 4GB of RAM. You'll be pleasantly surprised...
After the Apple Back to the Mac event, we were able to check out the new products in a super-secret room at the Apple campus. Well it's not that super secret. We didn't have to go through a bookshelf that doubles as a door to get these.
In case you’ve been unplugged from the Internet today or simply didn’t set your alarm clock to wake you up in time, Apple held a media event at their Cupertino campus. “Back to the Mac” brought a tantalizing peek at the next Mac OS X Lion 10.7 which brings some iOS-style functionality to the Mac, a new iLife ’11 suite, FaceTime for the Mac and yes, a pair of new MacBook Air models.
At today's Back to the Mac event, Apple released a not-so-surprising application called FaceTime for Mac. The beta version of this application, which is completely free to download, does just what the name implies. It allows you to FaceTime with someone on an iPhone 4, iPod touch, or another Mac. Though the application hasn’t been out very long, we have compiled together our favorite tips and tricks for using FaceTime on the Mac.
If you're a Mac user that's been left out of the FaceTime party for want of an iPhone 4 or new-fangled iPod touch, it's time to comb your hair and put some pants on, as Apple's FaceTime for Mac beta is now available for download. That's right: moving forward, there's no excuse not to get in on the video chat revolution.
