Apple's Mac OS X v10.6 was released two weeks ago and for most of us the
transition from Leopard to Snow Leopard went by without incident.
However, we've spent part of the last few weeks scouring Apple's discussion
boards and support site for solutions to problems people have been
reporting with the upgrade.
Obviously, we’re big fans of MacBooks. We take them everywhere. And
while Apple makes pretty sturdy gear, we’ll admit that we still like to
give our machines a bit more protection. There are tons of laptop
sleeves on the market, but unfortunately, a lot of them strike us as a
bit—well, blah. Haul’s line of MacBook sleeves, on the other hand, are
anything but boring. Made from recycled billboards, each is a
one-of-a-kind piece that can transport your laptop in singular style.
Like everything Apple does, the new MacBook Pro lineup spawned a great
deal of Internet chatter among Mac faithful. Some welcomed the new
13-inch Pro with open arms, remembering the well-loved 12-inch
PowerBook—and happy to have a small MacBook with pro-level features as
an option. Others were less than pleased with the loss of the
ExpressCard slot in most MacBook Pro models (see “MacBook Semi-Pro?”
below), which Apple replaced with an SD Card slot in all but the
17-inch model. With no fewer than six different models available—not to
mention BTO options—there’s a wide range to choose from. And with a
$1,300 price spread across all the MacBook Pros, it’s clear that Apple
is targeting the new Pro models at a wider audience than ever.
Can you believe it? It's already been a year. We can remember installing Cube Runner on our iPhones and cruising through a world of vector walls. One year later and the App Store is a runaway hit. We talk about our favorite apps and how difficult it is to pick just one.
