    Rumors everywhere! Macworld to bring netbook; updated Mac Mini

    This is more like it! Apple events always spur rumors, but the build-up to Macworld ’09 has been uncharacteristically quite – except for the iPhone Nano rumor from yesterday.  So here we go with some real Apple rumors. Read More

  • iPhone Nano rumor restarted with a case mockup

    iPhone Nano rumor restarted with a case mockup

    Macworld is mere weeks and there really hasn’t been any substantial rumors besides this one involving a iPhone Nano. Ever since the original iPhone launched, Mac fanboys have been dreaming of a complete iPod-ish lineup that includes a small, nano version. It is widely known, and the source of many leaks, that iPhone/iPod case manufacturers receive basic specs and dimensions of upcoming… Read More

  • No Steve Jobs Macworld Keynote this year? This can't be right.

    No Steve Jobs Macworld Keynote this year? This can't be right.

    The Steve Jobs’ Macworld Keynote is Apple Fanboy’s Christmas, Hanukkah, Kwanzaa, and Boxing Day all rolled into an one hour event, but there isn’t one scheduled this year according to the Macworld Website. It’s kind of strange that with the event less than three weeks away that the site wouldn’t put the event’s main attraction on the schedule. Jobs… Read More

  • A look back and the iMac: First impressions from 1998

    A look back and the iMac: First impressions from 1998

    Yesterday we wished happy birthday to the iMac, the personal computer from ten years ago that more or less saved Apple, leading the way to change the computer industry — as well as the music industry — forever. We posted the video of Steve Jobs introducing the iMac and the nostalgia was palpable. But what were the reactions? Reader Dan showed me this clip from a MacWorld from ten years… Read More

  • The Macworld trade show in pictures

    [photopress:mw08tadess.jpg,full,center] I swear, this is the last Macworld 2008-related thing I’ll write about. Then we can all forget it ever happened. AppleInsider brought a camera, possibly more than one, to the show and snapped away. We had plenty of shots of the star of the show, the MacBook Air, but we didn’t strain ourselves to the point of photographing other vendors’… Read More

    GeekBrief.TV #294

    I’ve had the opportunity to talk with some of the top talkers in the tech world. My all time favorite has to be Patrick Norton. I like him because he talks fast and because he’s got that compelling X-factor quality that can’t be easily explained or understood. I met up with him at the xTrain.com booth to talk about what to me seems like irrational disappointment in this… Read More

  • HDMI cables make great Apple TV alternatives

    [photopress:cheapappletv.jpg,full,center] Granted, Apple may have dropped the price of its Apple TV while simultaneously adding much needed features (like HD support), but I have a less expensive alternative you might enjoy. Head over to Monoprice, and buy a cable that’s compatible with your computer’s video out port. Connect that cable from your computer to your TV and you’ll be… Read More

  • iTunes Movie Rentals almost made me stop pirating. Almost.

    [photopress:movierentalsalmost_1.jpg,full,center] They were this close from getting me to stop pirating movies. Next year, maybe. The just announced iTunes Movie Rentals isn’t a bad deal at all. For $3.99, you can download standard-def “new releases” (more on that in a moment) and watch them on your Mac, PC, iPhone, iPod, and whatever else in the iTunes family. Older releases are… Read More

  • iPhone firmware 1.1.3 and you: GPS, movable icons

    [photopress:iphone113.jpg,full,right] In his keynote at this year’s MacWorld, Steve Jobs just announced the latest iPod firmware, version 1.1.3. It adds the following features to the phone that you slide to unlock. Remember, if you’re one of those jailbreaking types, don’t upgrade just yet. • The iPhone/iPod Touch SDK will be available in February, but there’s new… Read More

  • Apple's stock dives during Macworld keynote

    [photopress:apple_stock_chart_115.png,full,center] It looks like Wall Street isn’t too impressed with what Steve Jobs has showed off today. Apple’s stock is down some 8 percent today, trading at $170.41. What’s up, Wall Street? I mean, I have my own reasons why I’m disappointed with the announcements, but I’d like to know what The Street’s problem is. Apple… Read More
