  • "Constrained" iMac Supplies Point To Imminent Refresh

    Although the last iMac refresh took place in July, we heard rumors a little while back that new ones would be arriving early this year. And with Sandy Bridge and Thunderbolt, the expected improvements, ready to go, it seems like the new iMacs could drop any time. And what’s this? 9 to 5 Mac hears whispers that supplies of current iMacs are running low. You know what that means. Expect… Read More

  • OWC Will Cut A Hole In Your iMac For $169 (And Add An eSATA Port)


    It’s a fact that Apple hates connectivity standards. Well, maybe not a fact, but a common thought and so OWC has came up with a relativity inexpensive option to fix Apple’s latest puzzling design flaw. For only $169, which doesn’t include shipping, the company will cut a small hole in the bottom grill and install the missing eSATA port. The only little issue is that said… Read More

  • The Apple iMac and Mac Pro get CPU, GPU bumps in latest refresh

    Can’t say we didn’t see this coming. It seemed like each day there was another random source or sign that Apple was preparing to update the iMac and Mac Pro. Well, most of the rumors were right. The changes aren’t really all that special and simply evolutionary in nature. Still, we’re not one to turn away new components. Read More

  • Will Apple launch new Mac Pros, iMacs, and the Magic Trackpad tomorrow?

    The Internet has been quietly turning out Apple rumors over the last few weeks. Something about new Mac Pros here and new iMacs there and a multi-touch desktop trackpad thingie. It might all come to the surface tomorrow if John Gruber of the Internet is believed. Read More

  • All-in-one computer sales up 63 percent (but Apple losing out)

    Seems people really like those all-in-one PCs à la the iMac. Sales this year are expected to grow some 63 percent from last year, to 11.5 million units worldwide.

  • iOS to make its desktop debut with next iMac revision?

    IOS on the next iMac? That’s the rumor going around this morning. The deal is that Apple wants to bring touch controls to its desktop offerings, and will use the next iMac revision to test the waters a bit. So, you’ll have your standard Mac OS X installation, but then when you activate “touch screen mode,” you’ll switch over to iOS. Read More

    Got a MacBook Pro or iMac that needs a little customizing? Head over to this Etsy store for a bunch of lid and chin graphics.

  • Apple Issues (Another) 27-Inch iMac Screen Fix

    As you may have heard by now, many of Apple’s new 27-inch iMacs are more like iLemons. While the systems themselves are fine (and fast) there have been a ton of reports about problems with the screens (including mine and at least one other TechCrunch writer). Apple issued an update on December 21 that did not fix the problem for most of those users. Today, they have issued another… Read More

  • A Quick And Dirty Fix For The 27-inch iMac Screen Problem

    When we last wrote about the problems with the new 27-inch iMac’s screen a few weeks ago, there were over 1,600 replies on Apple’s support board about the issue. That’s 110 pages of replies. And the thread had been viewed some 260,000 times — much, much more than any other thread. I’m fairly certain more than all of the other ones combined, actually. Those… Read More

  • Introducing… The 27-inch iLemon

    Regular readers will know my affinity for Apple products. In general, they’re high quality, and I’m willing to pay a bit more for that. But a lemon is a lemon, regardless of who it’s made by, and must be labeled as such. These new 27-inch iMacs? Lemons. In case you haven’t heard yet, the screens on these massive things are failing left and right. Granted, not all of… Read More
