Retina MacBook Pro benchmarks show minor improvements

Some new benchmarks from Geekbench show that the new MacBook Pros with Retina displays only show a 3-5% increase from its predecessors. The new MacBook Pros received an upgrade to their processors, and some received increased storage space. Because of the launch of its new MacBooks, Apple has lowered the prices on its previous models. The previous models may appeal to those of you who want a MacBook Pro with Retina display, but don't necessarily need the extra 5% boost. You'll save hundreds of dollars as well.

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.

If Apple can ditch Intel, it will

The Apple rumor-mill is cyclical, and one tale refuses to die: Apple ousting Intel from its MacBooks, and replacing x86 chips with ARM-based alternatives. The story surfaces periodically, just as it has done today, with titters of increasing "confidence" within Apple's engineering teams that Intel will be eventually ditched in favor of the company's own A-series SoCs as currently found within the iPad and iPhone. Not today, so the whispers go, but eventually, and what's most interesting is that we're likely already seeing the signs of the transition in Apple's newest models.

Scott Forstall and John Browett set to exit Apple as “Collaboration” efforts commence

It would appear that Apple has some relatively major internal changes coming up as both their head of Retail John Browett and SVP of iOS Scott Forstall are announced to be exiting the company in the very near future. Forstall will be leaving in 2013 and will be serving as advisor to CEO Tim Cook until that time, while John Browett will be out without a timeframe - immediately, we must assume. This announcement is joined by assurances that Apple will be making changes that involve Jony Ive, Bob Mansfield, Eddy Cue and Craig Federighi adding more responsibility to their plate and that Tim Cook will be in charge of Retail until a new head of Retail can be found.

Welcome to Thursday evening folks. Today was Microsoft's big Windows 8 launch event, and though we didn't find out many new details, the company did share a few interesting tidbits of information. For instance, did you know that there are more than 1,000 Windows 8 certified PCs now? How about the fact that Microsoft has sold a whopping 670 million Windows 7 licenses? Microsoft also told us that the Windows Store will be available in 231 markets, and that Windows RT is supported by more than 420 million devices. Impressive numbers to be sure, but it's important to remember why we were at this show in the first place: Windows 8 launches in just a few hours, so get ready for that.
