Apple today announced Core 2 Duo MacBook Pros.
Tucked deep within the product pages for Apple's new Core 2 Duo MacBook Pro is mention of a new product that will make frequent flyers happy - the Magsafe Airline Power Adapter.
Several reports around the blogosphere indicate that Apple is readying their Core 2 Duo notebook and that it will be released any day now.
If Apple doesn't offer a Mac or iPod in a color you like, there is a solution: paint it. Not yourself of course, that'd be far too much trouble. Instead leave it to paint professionals like the folks at ColorWare.
Apple has filed for a patent which hints that a satellite radio accessory for the iPod may become a reality.
Apple yesterday announced preliminary financial results for its fiscal 2006 fourth quarter ended September 30, 2006. They also noted that the preliminary results may be subject to "significant adjustment" as a result of a likely restatement of historical results.
It's no secret that Apple is considering jumping into the mobile phone business (at least by their trademark filings, anyway) but before doing so, I hope that the company is paying attention to the recent death of ESPN Mobile.
After Friday's launch of the (PRODUCT) RED iPod nano to benefit The Global Fund to Fight AIDS, Tuberculosis and Malaria, there are some rumblings that Apple may extend the program to include other products as well.
Last Monday I reported that it was possible to adjust the speed of the MacBook Pro's fans via the command line. The hack involves modifying the plist files in AppleBlower.ktext and AppleFan.ktext. Essentially editing the speed values for both fans so they kick on a little sooner and run a bit faster.
