While you may be very excited about Mountain Lion and iOS 6, Apple isn’t the only company with interesting new products on the way. Microsoft is slated to release its long-awaited (and undeniably cool-looking) Windows 8 operating system for desktops later this year, with bona fide Surface tablets and a mobile release of Windows Phone 8 arriving shortly thereafter. So let’s take a look at what the competition is up to, and see where Apple could maybe learn a thing or two.
A funny thing happened at Google's I/O keynote yesterday. While everyone was expecting a new tablet and Android update designed to escalate its war with iOS, which Google delivered, it also pulled a page from Apple's playbook and released a "one more thing" of sorts--a stunning, high-priced luxury device that everyone wants to hold in their hands.
A little something for everyone here in this week. You want some MacBooks? We got 'em. You want software? We got that too. How about cases and keyboards and styli and all the rest? Oh yes, we have that too, and the steepest headphone price cut we've ever seen.
Whoa, some pretty good deals on MacBook Airs, but you have to get off your duff and go get them. None of this sitting around ordering over the interwebz and sitting back and waiting for it to arrive on your doorstep. On the plus side, you get to walk out the door with a brand spanking new laptop and get started playing with it right there on the spot. Score.
Microsoft's announcements about Xbox are exciting for everyone searching for the perfect integrated media center -- and isn't that all of us these days? Plus, it's fun to imagine what Apple could do to catch up and take things further. It's a glorious time to be a couch potato...
Sigh… the rumor mill apparently knows no boundaries, and therefore it keeps churning up every Apple product imaginable for an update at next week’s WWDC 2012. iPod shuffle? Check. Retina Display MacBook Pro? Check. New iMac, MacBook Air or Mac Pro? Check, check, check. At this point it’s easier to name the Apple products that won’t get refreshed next week -- or you can simply cozy up to our daily recap for this fine Wednesday, June 6, 2012.
Analysts, pundits and fans alike all seem to believe that Apple is secretly planning to introduce an HDTV revolution soon -- but instead of an actual hardware television set, what if the revolution was already right here in front of us?
Get yourself some sweet gear as you prepare for all the fun that is WWDC2012. We've got deals galore, from MacBook Pros to earbud cases and swanky skins for your iPhone. Take a peek inside these awesome finds.
The tenth annual D: All Things Digital conference kicked off in California on Tuesday night with a rousing Tim Cook interview. While the Apple CEO didn’t divulge any corporate secrets on the company’s HDTV plans, there was plenty of discussion about the future.
That’s plenty of bang for the buck, but exactly how much depends on how heavily you’re invested in Apple’s ecosystem. Except for Amazon Instant, many top Roku channels are available as iOS apps, and with an iOS device and Apple TV, you can play games that are just a little cooler than Video Poker (sorry, Video Poker developers) on your TV. But if you have an older television without an HDMI port, or if you’re allergic to the iTunes Store, Roku is worth a look.
