While Tim Cook had revealed earlier in the year that a "Made In U.S.A" Mac was on its way that would be manufactured in the U.S. rather than overseas, he has now revealed that a number of smaller parts for the Mac will be built within America as well.
Tim Cook sat down yesterday for an interview with Politco, where he said that the Mac will include parts manufactured in various states, in addition to the manufacturing of the entire computer which will also take place in the U.S. ... more
It seems as though Apple is prepping to unveil a new version of the Macbook Air at next month's WWDC. This conclusions comes after almost every major store is reporting that they no longer have any stock of the 13-inch default high-end Air that comes with a 1.8GHz processor and 256GB of flash storage.
One of the most telling signs of an upcoming new Apple product revision is when the current stock for that product starts drying up at stores. Apple always chooses to stop shipping and producing its old computers ... more

Chat applications have undergone a huge transition over the last decade. We've gone from AIM and MSN to Facebook Chat, Gtalk, and Skype. The one thing that hasn't seemed to change all that much, excluding Facebook, is how these applications look and feel. When it comes to the Mac, we've got two options: Adium and Messages. One of them is hard to look at and the other is hard to use because it hardly works properly.
Dawid Liberadzki and Oskar Krawczyk got sick of how Adium looks and feels ... more

For all those who discriminate against hard drives with moving parts, the iMac hasn't been a very good option for you. That is until now, where Apple has finally added the option to replace the default slow 1TB 5400 RPM hard drive with a quick 256GB or 512GB SSD for $300 and $600.
Before today, the storage options you could choose for the iMac weren't too hot. On the 21 inch iMac it was previously impossible to get only a solid state drive inside it. You could either go with ... more

I love the thinness of the iPhone 5, but hate how fragile the device can be at times. Though I don’t drop my iPhone often, it has happened, and the only thing that has saved my mobile connection to the world is my case. As a frequent iPod, iPhone and
