It may seem hard to believe, but the last major update to NoteBook for Mac was all the way back in 2009 — more than a year before the first-generation iPad made the dream of a truly mobile digital notebook a reality. OS X still has the upper hand, however, especially after the more than 100 new features and improvements introduced in version 4.0.
As of right now, the 13-inch MacBook Pro is the only model available without the spiffy new Retina displays found on many Apple devices.

Billed as a “modern creativity tool,” Curator is a virtual, iPad-only notebook for organizing websites, images, or text into beautiful, visually rich checkerboards. Up to 25 tiles can be opened full-screen or relocated anywhere on the screen (using just a finger) into a single board. The free app can be used to create up to five such projects, each with a unique name, and move between them with a swipe. Create a sixth board, however, and you’ll be prompted to pony up $6.99 via in-app purchase, which enables you to create an unlimited number of boards.
I have all kinds of notebook apps on my iPad. Some are brilliant handwriting emulators, while others are slick and skeuomorphic with carefully crafted UIs; some do a few things really well, and others do a bunch of things solidly enough. But I certainly didn't think I needed another one. Scrapnote has made a strong case for sticking around, though. It might look plain -- launching the app simply presents a library of staple-bound notebooks -- but its tools are powerful and versatile enough to handle most anything I threw at it.
Well, that was fast -- mere hours after we reported Tuesday night that iFixit was busy dismantling a mid-2012 MacBook Air, and the doctors already have a new patient on the table: The new MacBook Pro with Retina Display.
If you’ve been sipping cosmopolitans while spinning old episodes of Sex and the City on DVD, you may have noticed a curious gaffe during the scenes where Carrie Bradshaw is pecking away on her Apple laptop: The Apple logo is upside down.
