Apple now selling wall-mountable iMacs for $40 extra

One problem with the new iMacs was that there was no easy way to mount the all-in-one to the wall, since they didn't support a standard VESA mount. A lot of users like to save desk space and stick their displays to the wall, but there was really no easy way to go about that with the new iMac, unless you could do a bit of clever hacking. However, Apple has released an option specifically for that niche and is now offering iMacs with a built-in VESA wall mount adapter.

The Apple Shop name change: computer giant it isn’t

The Apple Shop name change: computer giant it isn’t

Today an announcement has been made that the cider and apple-related food and goods store "The Apple Shop", located in Norwich, England, will be changing its name after several years of calls by Apple computers users looking for technical support. And yes, today is indeed a slow news day, if you were wondering. The owner of this institution Geoff Fisher has spoken with the BBC saying that he's making the name change after 20 years with the same name of his own accord - and he's not mad about it. On the contrary, he's actually been quite amused, for the most part.

State of the Union includes “making Macs in America” mention

This year's State of the Union address included no less than a shout out by President Obama to Apple for bringing manufacturing jobs back to the USA. In addition to speaking about several other big companies that will be doing similar things in the near future, Obama noted the positive influence Apple's move will have on the United States. Apple CEO Tim Cook sat in the First Lady's box for the speech, a traditional area in which guests mentioned in the address are invited to sit.

After Apple’s 2012, a “prolific” 2013 could shake the industry

After Apple’s 2012, a “prolific” 2013 could shake the industry

This week Apple's Tim Cook made no effort to hide his excitement over the success Apple has had over its first fiscal quarter of 2013, letting investors know that it's largely because of the products of 2012 that this good time for the company is driven into the future. Back when Cook promised us big things in 2012 early last year, we saw new iterations of essentially every product Apple had on the market, along with a couple new ones to boot. Cook's affirmation here at the beginning of 2013 could very well mean big things for the company through the next 12 months as far as production goes - just as long as the supply chain Apple relies on doesn't get in the way.

Apple employee town hall meeting letter sets the tone

Apple employee town hall meeting letter sets the tone

Yesterday Apple announced new record results for their financial Q1 2013 including sales of iOS devices as well as overall revenue, and with those announcements came an invite from Tim Cook to employees for a town hall meeting being held this morning. This town hall meeting will likely be extremely similar to the meeting held last year at this time after the company released its 2012 Q1 financial results, question and answer session included. At the moment we're not entirely sure if we'll be seeing the results of this session or if it will be closed-door employees-only in the end.

Apple’s 2012

Apple’s 2012

Apple CEO Tim Cook promised a 2012 to remember, and with sweeping changes across the iOS and Mac ranges, new software and services, and more than a few courtroom battles, the Cupertino firm delivered. The new fourth-gen iPad with Retina display and its iPad mini sibling, along with the iPhone 5, cemented Apple's position as the benchmark against which new tablets and phones are measured. Yet it wasn't all smooth sailing, and the past twelve months saw Apple forced to wake up to a new position in the consumer electronics marketplace.

Apple prototypes of the 80’s unveiled

The designer known as Hartmut Esslinger has revealed an amazing treasure trove of never before seen designs from the Apple archives this week in a book by the name of "Design Forward." This book was launched this week at the opening event of an exhibition by the name of "German Design Standards - from Bauhaus to Globalization" and was delivered first to the folks at Design Boom where they've been allowed to display many of the images within. What we're being shown here is a set of Apple products designed - at least in part - by Hartmut Esslinger himself during his time with what would become one of the most iconic hardware companies in history.
