Wake up, sleepy heads. Did your alarm clocks go off at the right time? Did it make a difference if you updated to iOS 4.3? Did those of you with older iOS versions have any trouble with your clocks? Remember 6 months ago when all that was a very big deal? Here's to hoping Apple didn't miss anything, and just in case you did, we've got it all right here.
It was the week the iPad 2 ate every other tablet's lunch including some not even launched yet. Seriously, do they think the Xoom is so much better that people are going to shell out $300 more for it than 5 of the 6 iPad models out there? That either is going to have to be one heck of a tablet or one tall, tall glass of Apple Haterade. Join us on the flip as we once again drool, speculate, and inform, just in case ya were too dazzled and missed it.
Well, I've escaped the reality distortion field of this morning's iPad 2 announcement, although the RDF did its best to chase me down Highway 101 back to the office. Yes, the new iPad is sweet. Super sweet! Let's explore why -- and examine what Steve Jobs and Co. chose not to say.
By this time next week, this space will be taken over with iPad 2 news and reviews, but we've got rumors, oh yes, we've got rumors. Plus, a whole bunch of other cool stuff in the mix. Are you excited for Thunderbolt? Just the idea of that kind of speed makes us want to upgrade. How about you?
Rumors and reports, hype and excitement, two sides to two different coins, but ones always in evidence when it comes to new Apple products and refreshes of the old. As we get closer and closer to the usually scheduled release announcements, both coins get hot hot hot on both sides and all around. While this stuff can take over the news, there's still plenty going on out there, just in case, among all the noise, you missed it.
ARE YOU READY FOR SOME FOOTBALL!?? No? Prefer to read about all the happenings in the world o' Mac? Well, all rightie then. And if you go both ways, the big game doesn't start for a few more hours and here's something to distract you whilst you wait. Just In Case You Missed It.
Like the week of the Verizon iPhone, there was one story that was the dominator of the news here, and that story was Macworld Expo 2011. We've got videos, we've got galleries, we've got stories, we've got interviews. We've got it all. And here it all is, just in case...yeah, yeah, you know, just In Case You Missed It.
Congratulations to the winners of the Mac|Life Awards for 2011! We scoured the floor at Macworld Expo to find the coolest new hardware and software, and unearthed these geeky bits of goodness. Bust out your credit card, because we think you'll want them as much as we do.
This was the week the App Store cracked the 10 billion download mark and we have to say lotsa luck to the Microsoft app store. We hope to see you reach 10 billion downloads sometime around 2025. Bwahahaha! We kid, we kid. The MS app store will never reach 10 billion downloads! Zing! We kid again, we kid. All right, enough comedy, on with the all the news that's fit not to miss, but just in case you did.
Yawn, ho hum, another quiet week in the Mac world, as virtually nothing of interest to anyone happened, no big announcements were made, and we spent a week in a deep, deep coma. Wait, what? Something happened? Verizon got the iPhone? (Checking calendar) It's not April Fool's Day? Whew, lucky we've got tons of people on this beat or else this little news exclusive might have slipped right under our radar.
