You may recall the news late last month that a company named PhotoFast was producing 256GB upgrade kits for the new MacBook Air. As it turns out, Apple wasn’t too happy with the news, and now the company has been asked to stop.
You knew that the peace couldn't last forever. When word hit the street last week that installing Adobe's Flash software on the latest iteration of the MacBook Air could shave off upwards of two hours of battery life, Apple unwittingly awoke Adobe's sleeping dogs of war... or at the very least restarted the Flash-or-no-Flash slap-fight anew.
If you’ve held off buying a MacBook Air because you feared there was no way to increase the onboard storage, think again: Toshiba is now offering three sizes of blade-style SSD for those of you ready for more.
Is it possible that Apple knew what it was doing when it excluded Adobe Flash from being preinstalled in the latest MacBook Air models? A new report claims that the controversial Flash technology can kill battery life on the slim new laptops by as much as two hours.
After being reported both here and many other places online, it appears that Apple is well aware of the bugs currently plaguing new owners of 2010 MacBook Air models. A software fix appears to be on the way -- in the meantime, you’ll just have to put up with it.
When Apple revealed the newly redesigned MacBook Air at a press event in Cupertino, Steve skipped the theatrics of pulling one out of a manila envelope or any other “gee whiz, that’s thin!” gimmicks. But once the new machines arrived at the office (one of each size, hooray!), their improvements--both in design and performance--made a bigger impression than any Steve stunts could’ve.
By all reports, the majority of tech journalists and publications that have had a chance to get their mitts on one of the new MacBook Airs are smitten with the diminutive machine. However, not everyone is happy with the diminutive computing computing marvel. In Apple's support forums, a number of owners of 11.6 inch MacBook Airs have posted complaints surrounding the issue of video issues and kernel panics--issues that typically point to faulty logic boards.
Uh-oh. Some early Macbook Air adopters are starting to report problems of seeing video anomalies and kernel panics with the new 11-inch and 13-inch models of the Macbook Air, which could possibly have something to do with sleep/wake issues.
