Best Buy adds new Apple laptop SKUs to its systems

Posted in MacBook by Conner Flynn on February 20th, 2011

Best Buy’s laptop discovery tool is giving away some secrets by listing a set of “new SKU” laptops from Apple before the company has had a chance to even announce them. Well, we already knew something was coming anyway, but it looks like this lends some credence to recent rumors of a MacBook Pro refresh coming next week.

The prices are $1,199, $1,499, $1,799, and $2,199, all of which are presently occupied by current-gen 13- and 15-inch MBP versions. There is also an additional $2,499 price for a laptop shown as “New SKU I,” which is probably an upgrade to Apple’s 17-inch model.

Apple not working on smaller iPhone

Posted in iPhone by Conner Flynn on February 17th, 2011

Remember the latest rumor about Apple working on a smaller iPhone? Well, according to the New York Times, that ain’t happening, though Apple has looked at the possibility of a cheaper model. Earlier rumors had Apple developing a prototype of a smaller and cheaper iPhone, 1/3 smaller, or 1/2 as small depending who you believe, but the Times is now claiming that “Apple is not currently developing a smaller iPhone, according to people briefed on Apple’s plans who requested anonymity because the plans are confidential.”

Anyway, a smaller device would not necessarily be much cheaper to make and it would be a pain to use besides. Developers might have to rewrite their apps too. So no smaller iPhone just yet.

Is Apple Working on the iPhone mini?

Posted in iPhone by Conner Flynn on February 11th, 2011

With the release of a new version of the iPhone, we always hear rumors that Apple is working on a smaller version of the iPhone, and right on schedule we have more of these rumors. Bloomberg is reporting that Apple will be releasing an iPhone Mini this year.

Normally, we would laugh, but what Bloomberg is saying makes a lot of sense, since a smaller iPhone would open up a new market for Apple, which they will need with all of the tablet competition. The new iPhone Mini could retail for $200 without a contract, which would open up the iPhone to a budget market. It is supposedly one third smaller than the existing iPhone with no home button.

Apple iPad 2 production starts next month, iPhone 5 this May

Posted in Apple by Conner Flynn on January 24th, 2011

There is hardly a day that goes by where we don’t have an iPad or iPhone rumor. Here is today’s. Apple’s overseas manufacturing partners will apparently start production of the iPad 2 next month, while they will also be building the fifth-generation iPhone in May.

Take this with the usual grains of salt until we have something more concrete. One thing is for sure, no matter when they start production, it won’t be soon enough for Apple fans.

Apple’s next-gen iPad to get iPod touch-like back, wide-range speaker?

Posted in iPad by Conner Flynn on December 23rd, 2010

Take this one with the usual grains of salt, but according to Chinese sources the next iPad will have a 3-mm reduction in bezel width, the same 9.7-inch display size, and will have a flattening of the back allowing it to rest better on a desktop. It all sounds very plausible, right?

There’s also a “wide-range speaker” covered with “metal mesh”. The overall unit is said to measure 239 x 186 mm compared to the current iPad’s 242.8 x 189.7 mm footprint. Word is that the new iPads will begin shipping from factories in January.

Apple confirms white iPhone 4 for Spring 2011

Posted in iPhone by Conner Flynn on December 6th, 2010

The white iPhone 4 has been delayed several times and was even removed from the online Apple Store. There was never any official confirmation from Apple that the device was canceled, but that was the rumor. And now the latest in the white iPhone 4 saga is that some new signage has been going up in Apple stores which features a footnote that the white iPhone will be available in spring 2011.

Hopefully that is really the case. It’s in line with what Apple previously mentioned. Maybe we can get a happy ending for all of you white iPhone fans yet.

Will Apple release the iPad 2 next April?

Posted in iPad by Conner Flynn on November 22nd, 2010

That’s the word on the street. That Apple will be launching an iPad 2 next April. Of course we all knew that Apple wasn’t going to stop with just one iPad. Analyst Brian Marshall of Gleacher thinks that the iPad 2 will be coming out once the CDMA version of the iPhone hits the market.

The rumor can be traced to Digitimes, who says that Apple has commissioned several companies to roll out high density interconnect boards for the device. We know it’s coming and right now April seems like a good bet.

iPad 2 commercials already shot by Apple?

Posted in iPad by Conner Flynn on November 8th, 2010

Word is that Apple has already started to shoot ads for a new iPad 2 in New York with British photographer David Sims. Take this with a grain of salt for now as there is no evidence, not even a leaked document or a blurry image.

However, you can bet an iPad 2 is coming at some point, but we will likely have to wait until at least next year. Until then we can all guess at just what the next iPad will offer.

Apple to extend iTunes song previews to 90 seconds in U.S.

Posted in iTunes by Conner Flynn on November 2nd, 2010

Looks like Apple has informed music labels that it is preparing to extend the length of iTunes Store song previews in the United States to 90 seconds. This would be for songs that are at least 2 minutes and 30 seconds long. Shorter songs will continue to offer the current 30-second samples. I don’t know about you, but I’m glad to hear it, no pun intended.

Apple’s email says that by continuing to offer their music on the iTunes Store, labels are indicating their acceptance of the new terms. Any labels who do not wish to agree with the terms must withdraw their music from the iTunes Store.(As if they have a choice. Where else would they go?)

Apple licenses tech from TV guide maker Rovi

Posted in Apple by Conner Flynn on September 20th, 2010

Apple never rests and as proof, an SEC filing today revealed that it has struck a “multi-year agreement” with Rovi in what may be a strategy to support the new Apple TV. The terms are secret, but will let Apple license Rovi’s technology over the course of the deal. Neither company has commented yet.

It’s hard to say what Apple would use the tech for. The company makes interactive program guide material that taps into TV channel lineups. It also makes software for set-top boxes to access and share media stored both on the Internet and the local network. So Apple TV is a good guess.

Apple unveils Magic Trackpad

Posted in Apple by Conner Flynn on July 27th, 2010

The rumors were right and here it is. The Apple Magic Trackpad is a wireless touch input device that just debuted in Apple’s Store app for iOS 4. The glass-covered device sports an aluminum shell that replicates the multitouch area of Apple’s MacBooks.

The device is powered by a built-in battery, so you’ll need to keep it juiced if you’re going to use it a lot. The Apple Magic Trackpad will retail for $69 and uses no wires thanks to built-in Bluetooth.

Microsoft Arc Touch Mouse to be Apple Magic Mouse rival

Posted in Mouse by Conner Flynn on July 2nd, 2010

A new product listing has listed a Microsoft Arc Touch Mouse for $70. So of course rumors of Microsoft working on a rival to Apple’s Magic Mouse have begun. The prototype pictured above comes with a similar arc-shape to the current folding Arc mouse from Microsoft.

Curved transparent plastic and frustrated total internal reflection (FTIR) will be used to track several points of contact. And remember, touch/multitouch is already natively included in Windows 7, so a mouse like this would compliment it.

Apple ships 1.2 million iPads monthly, needs Samsung’s help

Posted in iPad by Conner Flynn on June 20th, 2010

The iPad is a blazing success. You would think that Apple would have expected massive sales and would have been more ready for it. iPad shipments are at 1.2 million each month, which is a half a million more than at launch.

Projections have sales reaching 2.5 million shipments monthly before the year is over. So Apple has had to call on Samsung to produce additional displays for the device, which means Samsung will join LG in supplying displays for the iPad.

MacBook Air update rumor surfaces

Posted in Apple by Shane McGlaun on May 10th, 2010

A month or so back Apple finally updated its line of MacBook Pro notebooks with new processors from Intel. The MacBook Air is still chugging along with the processors that it has had for a long time. That may change this week according to a rumor.

MacWorld Australia reports that the MacBook Air is getting an update this week. The rumor comes by way of a tipster that was right on with a tip that the MacBook Pro line was being updated.

Apple files Patent for Digital Concert and Events tickets

Posted in patents by Conner Flynn on April 18th, 2010

Details have come to light regarding a new Apple patent which could see the iPhone and iPod Touch used as digital tickets for concerts and events. The patent was filed in September 2008 and reveals that the system would use near field communications technology. Your iPhone or iPod would be simply swiped allowing you to enter the concert or event.

Rumor is that if you like the show and are a female, you can also use your iPhone to digitally throw a pair of panties not onstage, but from your iPhone to the band’s iPhone. Okay, I made that part up, but it certainly opens up some interesting possibilities.
