Mac Pro iFixit teardown: most repairable Apple product of 2013

This week the folks at iFixit have taken to the Mac Pro for 2013, and under the hood they’ve found some extremely favorable results. In addition to finding what iFixit suggests is "the most repairable Apple products we’ve seen all year." While that’s not exactly the same as the most repairable product they’ve seen all year period, it’s still a real positive marker for the company.

Japan’s Apple Store “New Years Lucky Bags” include one Mac Pro

Japan’s Apple Store “New Years Lucky Bags” include one Mac Pro

It would appear that the Japanese Apple Store team has upped the ante this year for their New Year Lucky Bag event, bringing on one 2013 Mac Pro for some lucky buyer. Since there’s only a single Mac Pro out there to be had, only a single customer will receive it - otherwise they’ll be getting a set of devices from the Apple Stores in Japan that are otherwise overstocked or for whatever reason an OK thing to give away. There’s also a set of devices that will be added to a limited number of bags.

FaceTime Audio headed to OS X

This week the folks at Apple have released the first OS X Mavericks 10.9.2 beta, and with it a glimpse of the future. Not a future in which we're seeing features that break the barriers of newness, nor something we've never seen before. Instead we're moving back a notch, so to speak, with the ability to work with FaceTime Audio - aka the video chat environment without the video.

Has there been a desktop computing reinvention quite like the 2013 Mac Pro? At the top of the year Apple's pro-Mac looked like it was facing the axe altogether, an overlooked relic compared to the slick and increasingly powerful iMac. As 2013 draws to a close, however, the new Mac Pro is arguably the most exciting new model to join Apple's range; the epitome of "Think different" as what exactly makes a workstation is called into question. Demand for the new Mac has already seen ship times for new orders stretch out into February 2014 at the earliest, but we've got our hands on the Mac Pro already to see how it holds up.

Mac Pro 2013 launches: Shipping slips to February 2014

Apple's new Mac Pro has gone on sale today, with demand already pushing availability of the innovative desktop to February 2014. The cylindrical Mac launched with premium pricing this morning - starting at $2,999 for the entry-spec model, though that still includes a 3.5GHz quad-core Xeon E5 processor, 12GB of memory, 256GB of PCIe flash storage, and dual AMD FirePro D500 graphics - but Apple's online store is already warning that new orders shouldn't be expected to ship until midway through Q1 next year.

Firefly Online preview brings us closer to QMX-made greatness

There's a real call for a return to glory for the Joss Whedon* original television series Firefly, tragically cut short well before the end of its potential lifespan. Set to appear sometime inside the summer of 2014, the folks at Quantum Mechanix have taken on the task of producing Firefly as an online game, one that massive amounts of players will be able to roll with at once. Before then, they have shown off a series of preview images that'll land as a final product in the next few months.
