As 2010 winds to a close, speculation has already turned to what new hardware Apple might bless us with in 2011. As it turns out, there’s a decent chance we’ll see upgrades to the iMac as well as the MacBook Pro in the first half of next year.
Apple has smashed the recent rumors of a pre-Christmas grand opening for the Mac App Store, announcing Thursday morning that the doors will instead swing wide open for business in just three short weeks, on Thursday, January 6.
Do you find yourself constantly pressing Command + Esc on your keyboard, only to have Front Row open when you didn't actually want to use it? Apple's media tool, installed on all Macs, is a great way to kick back and watch an iTunes video, but it can be really annoying if your fingers press the shortcut key combination. In this how-to, we'll show you how to remove Front Row from your Mac so that this annoyance doesn't happen any longer.
Think of the MacBook Eco as a hybrid car you can toss in your backpack. Just as a Prius is powered by a combination of gasoline and electricity, the MacBook Eco will stay running with a mashup of technologies that includes solar energy, piezoelectric power, and wireless electricity.
The age of wonder is just beginning. Each morning, we shove devices into our pockets that, as kids, we could only goggle at on Star Trek. Now we can Google on them, and that’s not even vaguely impressive. We live in an era when every day sees past science fiction become contemporary mundane reality, and like you, that only whets our thirst for more.
With Apple’s talent for staggering us with innovative design, Cupertino will likely be at the forefront of our culture’s next big holy-crap gadget. Just as surely, Jobs & Co. will keep it nailed down under bulletproof wraps right up until they’re good and ready to tell the world about it.
Do you remember that person you dated in high school--the one your mom hated because she knew they were no good for you? They were a bit too much for you to handle, they didn’t treat you so great…and you couldn’t care less because they were just that hot? This bag is like that.
Chrome is a worthy competitor to Safari. Not only do they run the same rendering engine underneath the hood--WebKit--but Chrome extensions are far more developed and can oftentimes provide a richer experience to the user. With Chrome becoming a major player in the browser wars, we cherry picked the ten best extensions for this powerful browser from Google.
iPhoto is a good thing. Pre-installed on every new computer cranked out by Cupertino, millions of Mac users have come to rely upon the application's user-friendly functionality to collect, edit and share their photos, as these are all tasks that iPhoto does very well.
That said, I think we can agree that the software flounders in a sea of fail when it comes to finding and deleting duplicate photos that--by way of editing or import--have found their way into your photo collection. Sure, you could root through your iPhoto collection and delete each and everyone of the duplicates you stumble across manually, but if you're anything like us, you've got so many photos crammed into your Mac that the thought of doing is daunting, to say the least. Fortunately, there's a far easier way to rid your iPhoto collection of those darned duplicates.
It’s the most wonderful time of the year--that is, until you have to fight your way through 12 months of knots and brave the cold so that Santa knows to stop at your house for some cookies. Of course, it’s just not Christmas without lights, and it’s just not Mac|Life without a few iPhone apps to help you deck your halls and keep everything calm and bright.
