Apple iMac 27-inch (2012) Review

Apple iMac 27-inch (2012) Review

Apple doesn't change things for the sake of change, and that's why we've had to wait a few years for a redesign of the iMac. When a fresh model does arrive, though, it arrives in style: for 2012, the iMac is slimmer than ever, with a crisp new casing that borrows aerospace construction methods and iPhone display technology to wrap together a beautiful, slim computer that's pleasing to the eye whether or not it's powered up. Still, as Apple's mainstream desktop, the new iMac has to perform, too, and with space at a premium there are some interesting choices to be made as to what goes inside. Read on for the full SlashGear review.

Apple Wins Patents for MagSafe on iPad, Multi-Touch Displays, Original iPod

Apple Wins Patents for MagSafe on iPad, Multi-Touch Displays, Original iPod

The patents are flying over at the US Patent and Trademark Office, a series of 20 of them running their way through the "granted" process this week putting some smiles on the faces of the Apple crew. The biggest news here appears to be that the MagSave magnetic charge port system we've been using on our MacBooks and MacBook Pros and MacBook Airs for a while now has been patented for use on the iPad. That means that when you've got your iPad plugged into the wall and uncle Frank goes flying by, tripping on the cord, your iPad will safely unplug with just the first *plink* of force, leaving the cord itself to sustain the bulk of the damage.

Apple Patents Suggest a Multitouch Display is Coming to the Mouse

While Apple may have already tried to revolutionize the current mouse we all know and love/hate, that doesn't mean the company has stopped trying to figure out new, and better ways to make the mouse even more ridiculous. What better way to go above and beyond the call of duty, then to include a multitouch display on the top of it? According to some new apple patent applications recently awarded, the Cupertino-based company may be doing just that.

Apple Lion Presents Mission Control, New App Store Features, Full Screen Apps

Apple Lion Presents Mission Control, New App Store Features, Full Screen Apps

Expose, Full screen apps, Dashboard, and Spaces. All of this leads to Mission Control. This comes inside the beast that is Apple Lion. It begins with the Apple App Store, as it becomes its own monster, the app store instantly on your dock. Inside the store there will be Top Charts, Categories, Featured, and Updates. These work similar to how you imagine they would, but they're right up front and center, and apps, when downloaded, literally jump down into your collection of applications you already own, right there in your dock.

Apple Ambidextrous Mouse idea could auto-recognize users

Apple Ambidextrous Mouse idea could auto-recognize users

A new Apple patent application for an Ambidextrous Mouse has been submitted, describing a wireless, user-configurable mouse that could automatically recognize whether it was being held by a left- or right-handed user and adjust its virtual buttons and other controls accordingly.  Perhaps more interestingly, however, Apple suggests that the peripheral could also be used to identify the current Mac user by the touch-pattern of their hand.

The mouse Apple has in mind sounds a lot like the current Magic Mouse, with "a unibody housing having a buttonless touch sensitive surface" which would be "divided into an array of independent and spatially distinct sensing regions."  The various button zones - which could be customized in terms of layout, number and purpose - are then set out according to that user's previous settings.
