Apple Docking Patent Works Great with Ultra-Slim MacBook PIC

January 4, 2008

Macbook made to fit-in-to iMac, whoa… Macworld 2008.

“This Apple docking station patent shows a screen base in which you can slide in a MacBook through its side. While this would be difficult to do with current MacBooks, it fits perfectly with the idea of the ultra-light, ultra-slim MacBook that allegedly will be presented at MacWorld.” The images and description looks quite cool.

Apple began November introducing a revamped line of MacBook laptops. Let’s close out the month with a few words about another product announced alongside the MacBookmac book pro updates—a build-to-order configuration of the MacBook Pro.

If you remember, on the same day Apple boosted the processor speeds and made other internal changes to its MacBook line, it also announced the availability a new, faster 2.6GHz Intel Core 2 Duo processor for the MacBook Pro. The 2.6GHz processor is a $250 upgrade over the $2,499 and $2,799 models that ship with the 2.4GHz Core 2 Duo.

Apple store is down, macbooks? leopard?

October 16, 2007

At this point when the Apple store closes, its like, yeah… you wont be open for a few hours. But really, do they need to take all their stores off at once? No way jose, they do it as marketing.

apple post it

It s a good trick really, it gets people asking, wondering, wanting to look around and maybe even bring it up to other people. Best of all when they are up again, it is up t the web surfer to find things out for theirselves, which means more apple hits and likely more Apple sales. Oh what will the day bring?


Dear Real Steve Jobs… Thank you for iLife ’08.

August 8, 2007

red buttons Dear Real Steve Jobs,

Thank you. The iLife ’08 released today looks to be the most revolutionary media software package on earth. The iMacs… incredible, .Mac – Thank god, Numbers – expected, but thanks. All is all, iLife ’08 fills in the gaps that the Leopard keynote was missing, and then some. iMovie… who is that guy who simply came up with this idea, the idea that changed media forever? I want to buy him a gift on Facebook, and then buy him a real one, doesn’t matter what it is, a beer, candy, a rainbow, whatever he wants. He deserves it. He deserves to go on more vacations. Send him to india, the pyramids, the wall, stonehenge. I’m interested to see what he comes up with. iThink we all are.

Yeah, Why don’t iMac have batteries?

August 3, 2007

Why don’t iMacs have batteries?

iMac BatteryYes, I really asked that question. Why don’t iMacs have batteries?

The reason I ask is because things happen. Someone is building a building and cuts the power to a whole city block. Oops. Or a storm brews up and knocks down a tree and the lights go out. It happens, the power goes out and then my iMac goes dead. So why don’t desktop computers have batteries?

Now, I’m not asking for much. Just a small battery that lasts maybe 10-30 minutes. Giving the user just enough time to save everything and shut down the computer safely. I’d think there would be enough room for a mini battery inside my iMac.

Or maybe, someone like Griffin Technologies could come up with a battery pack accessory. It could plug into your USB or Firewire slot and keep you safe.

Granted, I don’t even know if this is possible for a third party accessory, but I thought I’d ask as I’ve had the power go out a couple of times in the past few days and it’s really annoying. I haven’t lost anything, but even five minutes is enough time for me to save whatever I need and shut down.

Now buying a big UPS backup is overkill in this situation. So don’t even suggest it. I want something small and handy for just a few minutes of power.

What do you think? >>>MORE.
