In just 48 short hours, Wednesday’s Apple media event will be a memory, and we’ll be making those important life-or-death decisions. (“Buy an iPad 3? Wait for an iPad 4?”) Tech journalists are having a field day packing in all the last-minute rumors they can get their hands on ahead of Apple’s 10am PST event on March 7, so let’s catch up on those and the rest of the day’s news for this fine Monday, March 5, 2012.
Some people are more fortunate than others -- for example, yesterday’s Mac OS X 10.7.3 update is causing grief for many who used Software Update to install it, while our 27-inch iMac was smooth sailing all the way with this method. If you’re one of those affected, read on for the fix -- and while you’re at it, stick around for a little bit and take in the rest of the day’s news for this fine Thursday, February 2, 2012.
That surge of Twitter activity this evening was the internet going ape for Facebook’s new IPO filing today in an effort to raise $5 billion. Hey, good luck with that, guys… we’re just hoping all that cash will bring some much-needed fixes to the website, but Zuck probably has some other cool stuff in mind. Oh, and don’t forget to download Mac OS X 10.7.3 which finally hit Software Update today -- and while you’re downloading, maybe catch up on the rest of the news for Wednesday, February 1, 2012.
Christmas falls on Sunday this year, which means most of us have an extended work week and are now truly feeling the “hump day” blues like never before. The good news is, you still have time to take care of everyone on your gift list, but hurry -- time stands still for no one, after all. We’ve found one of the best ways to get through “hump day” is to kick back for a few minutes and catch up on the day’s news… which we just so happen to have right here for Wednesday, December 21, 2011.
It was a big week for app updates and for iPad apps to migrate down to the iPhone (the reverse of the usual direction). There were also rumors, as there always are, and there was Google, stealing someone else's idea (as usual).
Can it really be 15 months since the Mac Pro was last updated? The familiar hulking frame is even more long in the tooth, having been largely unchanged since the Power Mac G5 was introduced in the summer of 2003 -- several lifetimes in computer years. While Apple remains mum on the prospect of a new Mac Pro, there’s some evidence to support that refreshed hardware is still on the boards in Cupertino.
