    MacRumors is reporting that the new MacBook will be dubbed “Air” and that it will have a 13.3-inch screen, external optical drive, but it won’t be a sub-notebook, rather, just a thin one. 9 to 5 goes on to speculate that Air implies WiMAX will come to the new notebooks or to AppleTV. Read More

    Macworld 2008: 'There's something in the air'

     PHOTO CREDIT: Ars Technica Ars Technica got a snap of the first banner to go up for Macworld 2008. It says, “There’s something in the air.” What could it mean? My guess is that Apple is definitely starting its own airline to compete with JetBlue, Virgin, and SkyBus. Your thoughts? Macworld.Ars: First banner up at Moscone Center [Ars Technica] Read More

  • Sources at Intel tell us about Macworld

    Sources at Intel tell us about Macworld

    Apparently I should be speaking with friends back in Oregon more often. I always knew my friends or their parents worked at Intel, but haven’t thought about ever asking them which groups they work in. Yeah, I know, it’s pretty lame of me. So I did some poking and prodding and promised some things I probably shouldn’t have to get this info, but I think it’s worth it in the… Read More

    Rumor: Macs to ship with Blu-ray support

    Macworld 2008 is shaping up to be the hottest ticket this month. Quite possibly rivaling CES for press coverage. Why? Besides the announcement of a sub-notebook and/or multi-touch notebook, iTunes movie rentals, and HD video editing software we may see a shift in the format wars. Apple has remained quiet on the subject in terms of hardware by not picking one side of the other to support, though we… Read More

    More blogs, like Popular Mechanics, think Macworld will bring touchscreen MacBooks

    What if I told you that now even Popular Mechanics is jumping on the “Apple will introduce a tablet Mac at Macworld” bandwagon? What then? What if I told you that they also have a completely fake and not-even-good-looking video of the device? Then you’d have absolutely nothing else to impress you for the rest of the year, and for that you’d be sorry. But don’t take my… Read More

    Rumor: Red's Redcode coming to Final Cut Studio as native at Macworld

    Part of Macworld next month will be a thing called the Final Cut Pro group, just for you video guys. And we’ve been tracking rumors that there will be a special surprise on the 16th. We’ve done some digging, and we’re fairly sure that this surprise has something to do with the Red One camera and Final Cut’s integration with Redcode. In reality it’ll be an update to… Read More

  • Watch out Apple, Creative just dropped a bomb

    Watch out Apple, Creative just dropped a bomb

    I’m not saying people will be rushing to pick up a Zen or anything, but it should be noted that Creative has announced the world’s first flash-based 32GB PMP and it’s the size of a CC. What else does $378 get you? That’s not a type typo, either, it’s $378. That’s cheap. Super cheap for 32GB of flash memory. A 2.5-inch display, 30 hours of music playback, five… Read More

    iFones Extreme!

    Only an Apple rumor with absolutely no legs could trump the Microsoft Zune announcement we’re expecting to hear tonight. But wait, it is just the Zune 2. In any case, the source code on the Apple iPhone Feedback Page seems to have unveiled a secret. What’s the secret? Oh, I don’t know. Maybe the iPhone Extreme, biatches. Who really knows what that means, if anything, but all… Read More
