Apple Remote gets metal makeover

Apple Remote gets metal makeover

The Magic Mouse isn't the only peripheral from Apple that's had a makeover; the venerable Apple Remote, last seen looking vaguely tired in white plastic, has been dipped in aluminum for its latest incarnation.  The Apple Remote still has dedicated play/pause and Menu keys, together with track-skip and volume controls, but now looks like a drawn-out, flattened iPod shuffle.

To use it with your iPod, iPhone or iMac, you'll need a suitably equipped dock or a desktop that has an IR port.  The Apple iPod Universal Dock will do the trick for the PMPs, priced at $49, while any iMac introduced from 2005 onwards should have the required receiver.

New Apple part numbers leak: iMac, Mac mini, Time Capsule & Airport updates

The Apple Store is still down and the Cupertino company themselves are still tight-lipped, but thanks to Apple Insider we have a pretty reasonable idea of what might be on the virtual shelves in the next few hours.  They've received a list of product numbers, complete with some descriptions, which suggest Apple are readying a few new Mac mini units (one without an optical drive), a new 21.5-inch iMac, two new Time Capsules (1TB and 2TB) and a new Airport Extreme.

Updated: All the details of the new ranges here.

Apple Store down, huge catalog refresh coming?

Apple Store down, huge catalog refresh coming?

Entirely unsurprisingly, the Apple Store has been taken down for the usual hurried "updates".  While the same thing happened late last month with no noticeable changes, today we're expecting quite a few modifications what with the very recent speculation that Apple are planning to push out a new MacBook, iMac, Mac mini and even peripheral range.

Update: The store is back, and here's what you can buy.

Apple new MacBook, iMac, Mac mini, Mighty Mouse & multitouch desktop tablet imminent?

Apple may be riding high on another successful financial quarter, but we still wouldn't put it past them to announce a few new products this week in order to stick a spoke in the wheels of Windows 7's launch.  According to man-in-the-know John Gruber, it's not a product trickle but a flood we should be expecting, with both new notebooks and desktops together with multitouch-compatible peripherals on the cards.

Update: The new range is now live - all the details here

Avi Greengart’s Products of 2009

Avi Greengart’s Products of 2009

As 2009 comes to a close it’s time to acknowledge some of my favorite tech products of the year.

The first “product” on the list works across the iPhone 3G, iPhone 3GS, and iPod touch: Apple’s App Store. The hardware upgrades to the iPhone and iPod touch in 2009 were less impressive than the price drop on the iPhone 3G and the greatly expanded capabilities that application developers were given for writing for the iPlatform. The developer community responded with tens of thousands of new apps that turn an iPhone or iPod touch into a portable game console, heart monitor, prayer book, GPS navigator, eBook reader, and myriad other possibilities. Other platforms also rolled out app stores this year, but Apple retains an enormous lead in both the number and quality of options.

MacBook touch patent filed in 2010 – just as Steve Jobs slammed the idea

MacBook touch patent filed in 2010 – just as Steve Jobs slammed the idea

Supposing you saw the one single appearance of a MacBook with a touchscreen during the Apple keynote "Back to the Mac" in the year 2010, you may be wondering when this device is going to be released. As it was stated then by Steve Jobs - and as the company has maintained since - the touchscreen laptop doesn't work. Today, though, a new sort of MacBook has appeared in a patent application from Apple - one with a touchscreen on it.

Leap Motion Controller Review – Airspace and Apps

Leap Motion Controller Review – Airspace and Apps

Leap Motion isn't convinced that a touchscreen is enough: instead, it wants you to start waving. While gesturing wildly at your electronics may bring to mind Jean Michel Jarre or trying to play a theramin, the Leap Motion controller is a whole new ball-game. Little larger than a packet of gum, the USB peripheral sits in front of your keyboard and tracks everything that moves in the space around it, with the theory being that reaching out and grabbing a virtual interface is a whole lot more natural than pushing a mouse around or even swiping at a touchscreen. Is the reality so clean-cut? Read on for the full SlashGear review.
