If you have a need to run Windows on your Mac, today's Morning Report has all the details on a major new upgrade to one of the best solutions for doing just that, along with rumors of the world's largest Apple retail store, and new updates to Cupertino's pro video applications thrown in for good measure. Read on to find out more!
Windows 7 remains one of the most popular operating systems for Apple's rival Microsoft, but apparently the folks in Cupertino want nothing to do with it. According to new support documents (via MacRumors), Apple's Boot Camp for the new Mac Pro no longer supports installations of the 2009 platform. If you want to run Windows on your sleek 2013 Mac Pro, in other words, you're going to install Windows 8.
When it comes to streaming movies, Mac users already have plenty of options like Netflix and Hulu — but a new application seems likely to ruffle feathers in Hollywood by turning torrent files into free, desktop-based cinema.

It also marks the first time Apple has outdone PCs in terms of hardware sales.
Earlier this week, a report surfaced that the late Steve Jobs wanted Mac OS X to run on Sony VAIO PCs -- a rather ironic coincidence as the Japanese consumer electronics giant announces plans to kick that very brand to the curb.
Proving once again that the rumor mill can often be more right than wrong, Microsoft has confirmed the appointment of Satya Nadella as Chief Executive Officer as founder Bill Gates steps down as chairman.
