As soon as Apple rolled out the 15-inch MacBook Pro with Retina Display last summer, all the Mac addicts we know began clamoring for more Retina models, and this past fall Apple obliged, introducing a 13-inch version. From the outside, it looks just like its big brother: The same jaw-dropping LED-backlit display, with four times the pixels (2560x1600 in this case). The same advanced ports, including two Thunderbolt ports, two USB 3, HDMI, SDXC, and MagSafe 2. The same thinner, lighter design — this model just 0.75 inches thin (that’s a mere seven one-hundredths of an inch thicker than a MacBook Air) — and weighing only 3.57 pounds. But inside, it's pretty different.

Now that Apple has confirmed that its latest iMacs will go on sale this Friday -- the very last day of November, mind you! -- it seems likely that iTunes 11 may drop on the same day, unless Cupertino decides to disappoint Mac users again by delaying it into December. Are you excited to have a completely refreshed iTunes or have you pretty much abandoned it by now in favor of an iOS device anyway? We're eager to download, and hopefully sooner than later. So while we wait, here are a few unrelated news items to tide you over.

Well, well, well… it seems the public outcry of net neutrality fans have finally caught the ear of AT&T, who backpedaled slightly on their decision to limit FaceTime over cellular to only customers on their new Mobile Share plans.
