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.

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.
