WWDC is right around the corner, and so far the lion's share of the speculation as to what we'll see has focused on things like the iWatch, the rumored 4.7-inch iPhone, and the similarly rumored home-automation system. But it's also likely that we'll see some updates to the iMac as well, judging by codes referring to new models buried in the OS X Mavericks 10.9.4 beta.
Although we've never personally been big fans of TweetDeck, the Twitter client has many die-hard fans, despite losing its mobile apps and a renewed focus on the web, including this week's fresh coat of paint.
The iPhone 4S actually does have some killer new features. The 2011 iPod refresh, on the other hand, is just that-- a refresh. But sometimes good enough is plenty good enough. Though the newest iPods lack any whiz-bang new features, they’re still the best music players out there. You could buy a no-name MP3 player, or a Zune (oh right, not anymore!)-- but why would you?
Let's see, we've had our refresh of the MacBook Pro now, as well as the iPad. What's next on the docket? The iMac perhaps? A new rumor today has supplies tightening for the product, and you know what that can only mean!
While Intel's error on their latest chip design has certainly been the subject of much publicity, it has also unfortunately put a slight bump in the road of Apple's plans for a widely expected MacBook Pro refresh. However, there is some good news. The bump should only be slight, and any delay should only be minor.
In my ongoing quest to never again leave the house without my iPhone,
I’ve tried to adopt the zealous-organizer habit of using a landing
strip inside my front door. This island of unclutteredness is supposed
to give me a place to stash my can’t-forget-’ems--I’m thinking the
modern trinity of keys, wallet, and phone, or anything essential that
regularly hitches a ride in my pocket. Once I’ve fully trained myself
to deposit those items there without fail, I’ll be more apt to remember
to take them every time I leave. And avoid running around searching for
my keys while the carpool idles outside and considers leaving my
lagging behind… well, behind.
From the “we hope it’s true” file: Apple has been snapping up “significant quantities” of LED camera flash components in recent months, presumably to add them to the next generation of the iPhone hardware.
Apple launched iTunes 9 back in September with a revamp of how many online store pages were displayed, most notably by using Safari-like WebKit to render them. Over the weekend, one of the areas left neglected several months ago has started to get a refresh as well.
