Why I pre-ordered the new Apple TV

Why I pre-ordered the new Apple TV

Let me just get this out of the way now: I don’t like the new Apple TV. I don’t like that it doesn’t feature on-board storage. I don’t like that I can’t buy songs on it. I don’t like that I can’t buy movies and television shows. And I don’t like that it’s a hobbled alternative to even my least useful set-top boxes.

BRABUS iBusiness gives Apple makeover to Mercedes S600

Someone at BRABUS has obviously been spending a whole lot of time at the Apple store, as the German Mercedes tuners' new iBusiness package for the S600 is chock-full of the Cupertino company's kit.  As the name suggests, the BRABUS upgrade turns the S600 into a mobile office: while the chauffeur concentrates on the autobahn, the rear-seat passengers get two iPads, an iPod touch, three displays - including a 15.2-inch flip-down LCD - and a Mac mini to entertain them.

Why every living room needs a PC

Why every living room needs a PC

I spend an inordinate amount of time in my living room. Part of that time is spent watching television. When I'm not watching some of my favorite shows, I'm probably reviewing video games. But there's something else that I have in my living room that I wouldn't go without: a PC.

Apple new MacBook, Mac mini, iMac and Magic Mouse hands-on

The Apple Store has just gone back online with a broad sweep of updates, and I've been catching up with Apple this morning to go hands-on with the new range.  After the cut, all the details and some hands-on feedback with the new 13.3-inch MacBook, three new Mac mini desktops, four new iMacs with 21.5-inch and 27-inch Full HD IPS displays and, in the top-spec model, a Core i5 or Core i7 processor, and the new Apple Magic Mouse with a multitouch trackpad.
