Next generation iPhone to use Intel Moorestown processor?

It would be interesting to see the next generation iPhone use the Intel Moorestown processor.  I have no definitive answers, but definitely a few interesting facts to think about. If the next generation iPhone was made using Intel’s Moorestown processor the iPhone could become less secure from hackers due to the x86 architecture that the […]

Latest MacBook update didn’t fix external monitor

Firefox 3.1 Beta adds support for 3-finger gesture

Finally!  Many complaints about Firefox lately have revolved around the lack of support for the late-2008 Unibody MacBooks’ multi-touch trackpad, particularly the 3-finger gestures.  This feature has already been built in to Safari and allows users to go back in history (3-finger swipe left) or go forward (3-finger swipe right) – finally Firefox has adopted […]

Late-2008 Unibody MacBook Update

There’s a firmware update out for the late-2008 unibody MacBooks.  Maybe it’ll fix my issues with the external monitor going crazy when the screen comes back on after going dark (from energy saving).  Others have been complaining about how the MacBooks come out of sleep if you remove anything from the USB ports while in […]

Apple stands for quality: no cheap MacBook on the horizon

[This article is intended to be read within the context of my other post: Apple’s NetBook release stategy | Redefining “netbook”] Last Friday, AppleInsider posted an article about Apple releasing a netbook – I disagree with this as the term is currently defined.  AppleInsider then goes on to say that it’s believed by some that […]

Apple Tax: overused and reiterated

I think this article explains Apple Tax the best.  I know the term has been talked about way too much lately, but I feel I need to reiterate it.  It’s annoying to see people complaining about one of the only computer manufacturers that really cares about the entire computer experience, from physical appearance all the […]
