Between the Magic Trackpad now shipping, new Mac Pros on deck for August and a new 27-inch LED Cinema Display coming in September, you’d think Apple would have exhausted their goody bag for Tuesday. But you’d be wrong, because the iMac line has also gotten a little love today.
It’s been a long, cruel wait for Mac Pro fans, but Apple has finally delivered for you Tuesday, with a new model packing up to 12 processing cores with Intel Xeon processors. The bad news is, they won’t physically arrive until next month -- but hey, that’s right around the corner, right?
Remember the recent leaks showing some kind of trackpad device that Apple appeared ready to release? It’s real and it’s here, and it’s the Magic Trackpad. Sadly, Bigfoot remains as elusive as ever, but we can’t have everything, can we?

We're going to keep this short, because if we go on about our love for The Woz, we'll never be able to finish this blog post. Steve Wozniak is scheduled to appear on The Big Bang Theory sometime later this year. Whether he'll be strolling in, riding on a Segway is another news story entirely.
Developer news is always so exciting because it gives us something to look forward to.

Microsoft is stepping closer to the launch of its Office 2011 product for the Mac.
