Apple MacBook Review – Late 2008 Model

Apple MacBook Review – Late 2008 Model

Of all the things Apple should be blessing Steve Jobs' Reality Distortion Field for, it's the perennial success of the MacBook despite not having undergone a serious update in more than two years. As Jobs himself declared at the notebook's launch, the MacBook remains the best selling Macintosh; no RDF was necessary when faced with the new aluminum model's design.  It's not, however, the $800 notebook some were predicting - and even more hoping for - so where does this mini-MacBook Pro fit in?

PHONE Mag Live-Blogging Apple’s iPhone SDK announcement today!

PHONE Mag Live-Blogging Apple’s iPhone SDK announcement today!

It's been a rumor-packed week since Apple announced they'd be holding a special event today, March 6th, to officially announce the iPhone SDK Roadmap as well as "some exciting new enterprise features", and we wanted to remind you that over at our cellularly-obsessed sister site PHONE Magazine we'll be live-blogging the whole event.  The show kicks off at 10am PST - that's 1pm EST or 6pm GMT - and the place you'll want to be is http://live.phonemag.com/

Will Steve announce an SDK beta as has been rumored, and leave the full release for later in the year?  Just how draconian are Apple going to be about third-party software, and is iTunes really going to be the only place users can get new apps for their iPhone?  And please, can we have Microsoft Exchange support yet?  We're hoping to find out the answers to all these questions - and maybe the odd surprise, because we're greedy like that - when Jobs takes to the stage, so join us later today!

As most of you already knew, our own Vincent Nguyen was at the Apple show last week where a whole slew of software upgrades, the new iMac, the new keyboard, the upgraded Mac Mini, and the Gigabit Airport Extreme were all announced/released. Well, it just so happens that still pictures aren’t the only thing Mr. Nguyen is good at, he can take videos too.

Waiting To Enter

Nothing too terribly interesting with two exceptions, first the Q&A session, I don’t know if it is the entire segment or just a 4:19 long clip of it, but it has some useful information in it. The second exception is the video of the new iMac and keyboard, it gives you a better mental picture of what they look like and their comparative sizes.

iWork ’08 – The software updates just keep coming

iWork ’08 – The software updates just keep coming

I can't remember a time when Steve has spent this much time talking about software when he wasn't introducing a new version of MacOS. The latest change comes to iWork.

Over 1.8 million copies of iWork have been sold thus far, which isn't too bad. Now they're releasing the new iWork '08, which is dramatically enhanced. You'll see a big change in Keynote with new transitions, text effects, color planes, confetti and more.

iPhoto + .Mac = .Mac Web Gallery

iPhoto + .Mac = .Mac Web Gallery

I know, we all want more hardware announcements, but we all pretty much expected to hear a .Mac announcement. It's not like they hid it very well, they did announce that the .Mac site would be down during the show today. Anyway, onto the good stuff!
