    Wildy Wrong Rumors Killed WWDC

    “It turns out we were almost all wrong.” A concerned public servant once said about the existence of illicit weapons in a certain Middle Eastern country. That same quote now applies to Apple’s Worldwide Developer’s Conference 2007, where nearly every single rumor that circulated around the Internet was completely wrong. No new iMacs; no new iPods; the 17-inch iMac and Mac… Read More

  • Safari 3 For Windows First Look

    Safari 3 For Windows First Look

    Now that WWDC is over, it’s time to check out the aftermath. We grabbed Safari and were hit, quite unsurprisingly, with some initial errors. Considering Safari for Windows is still in its beta release, most of these problems will eventually be ironed out. Read More

  • Apple Store Updated With Nothing

    Apple Store Updated With Nothing

    Ummm…WTF?!? Looks like the Apple site was tweaked with a nice new design, but nothing new in the Apple Store. Is anyone else left with a sense of nothingness from the keynote? We’ll have to take solace in the Safari 3 Public Beta. Woohoo…more like boohoo. *Cries in the corner* Read More

    Fifty Percent Off Mophie Gear for WWDC

    From 1 to 5 PM EST, Mophie will take 50% off of everything on their online store. What does Mophie sell? They have the Bevy, for one, that odd little Shuffle case with the bottle opener on it. It’s pretty good of them to honor us Mac geeks like that. Check them out. Product Page Read More

    WWDC 2007 Hype Update: How to Read Our Coverage

    Jack… there’s another island. Our own Matt Hickey is now entering the building with the rest of the Macinworld at the Moscone Center. As his reports stream in, we will turn off the main page and show only our WWDC 2007 page during the conference. Once the conference is over, we’ll switch back to the regular format and post the coverage to another dynamic page. If this plan… Read More

  • Jobs' Keynote Leaked

    Jobs' Keynote Leaked

    Oh. My. God. His holiness’ keynote is less than four hours away and I can barely contain myself. This supposed keynote outline comes from a German site and we have no idea whether or not it’s true. Will there be anymore iPhone details revealed? Will Leopard be the star of the show? A new iMac perhaps? Well, if this “leaked keynote” is any indication of the things to come… Read More

We’ve got some pretty dope tools to make it a fun day, so we hope you’ll join us. His Steveness will most likely be talking about secrets. For weeks we’ve been speculating and guessing about what secrets lay behind the… Read More

  • WWDC Banners Reveal Secrets

    Some crafty photographer over at Roughly Drafted managed to get some key shots inside the WWDC conference before it’s even started. Inside, there are some banners that say “Welcome to WWDC07 Expand your universe.” and “Mac OS X Leopard Rocket fuel for your apps.” Clearly this means that OS X Leopard will be the star of this year’s WWDC. In addition to Leopard… Read More

  • Windows Apps in OS X: Is This What Leopard Can Do?

    Some of our regular readers may recall a stupid and irresponsible rumor we started right here on this blog, that being the idea, based on a slip by an Apple PR type, that future Macs might shortly ship with Vista pre-installed as a dual-boot option for Leopard. The idea isn’t just to run Windows, but to run Windows apps in the Mac OS. Many of you scoffed at the idea, and we even thought it… Read More

 
  • Leopard Will Use ZFS File System: Sun

    Leopard Will Use ZFS File System: Sun

    Sun opened its big, fat mouth today and announced that Apple’s upcoming Mac OS X Leopard will use its ZFS file system as its default. (Macs currently use HFS+ with journaling enabled as the default file system.) A full list of ZFS’ advantages can be found on Sun’s site, but this one caught my eye while quickly glancing over it: All operations are copy-on-write transactions, so… Read More

  • Sorry, No New iMac at WWDC Next Week

    Sorry, No New iMac at WWDC Next Week

    Uh, oh. Now it looks like there will not, repeat, *not* be any new iMacs at Apple’s WWDC next week. That’s what AppleInsider has learned, at any rate. But AI promises that a major overhaul of Apple consumer computers is still on track for this year, it’s just that next week is too early to launch them. (Apple might have a certain other product launch to worry about.) AI still… Read More

  • Rumor: Apple to Announce Way to Convert Mac OS X Apps for Use on iPhone at WWDC

    Rumor: Apple to Announce Way to Convert Mac OS X Apps for Use on iPhone at WWDC

    Can you feel the electricity? We’re just one week away from Apple’s WWDC and last-minute rumors are coming a mile a minute. But seriously, the latest “well, it might be true” rumor is that Apple will announce a way for third-party developers to easily convert their Mac OS X apps for use directly on the iPhone. Does this mean X-Chat Aqua, Adium and VLC will work on the… Read More

  • iMac Gets Dolled Up For WWDC

    iMac Gets Dolled Up For WWDC

    Well, now that the iPhone release date hoopla is sort of over, let’s fire up the rumor mill about what’s coming our way at WWDC. Could it be a brushed metal iMac, ala Mac Pro, perhaps, with a Santa Rosa chipset? Doesn’t look like it’s the black iMac that was rumored last month. It’s buzzing around that the newest iMac will also be super sized to proportions larger… Read More

  • A Stupid, Insane Mac Rumor We're Starting Right Here: New Macs to Ship With Vista

    A Stupid, Insane Mac Rumor We're Starting Right Here: New Macs to Ship With Vista

    [Update, 05-31-07, 2:37PM PST] So some other famous bloggers and I were discussing this unlikely rumor, and we started to realize something: With core elements of Vista in place on Intel hardware, it wouldn’t be much of a stretch to imagine OS X running Windows apps. Then, by chance, I ran across this article at Mac Daily News posits the very idea, and that this could be the way big secret… Read More

  • New Macbook Pro And/Or iMac At WWDC

    New Macbook Pro And/Or iMac At WWDC

    Another week, another big Apple rumor. This one stems from the upcoming WWDC, which starts next month. Analysts say that Steve Jobs will debut a new version of the iMac and a new Macbook Pro during the conference. Though the Macbook Pro I don’t see being updated for a little longer, the iMac is definitely in need of an overhaul. Rumor has it that the new design will be thinner and completely… Read More

    Apple to Reveal Feature-Complete Leopard at WWDC: Secret, As Yet Unannounced Features Ahoy

    If Apple’s official e-mails are to be believed then we should see Leopard in all its glory at the WWDC next month. The key phrase from the e-mail—feature-complete version—implies that all of Leopard’s so-called secret features that many think Apple has yet to reveal will be there. New Finder? New GUI altogether? Something else no one else has come up with? In a little more… Read More

  • Black iMac To Drop At WWDC?

    Now that it’s Monday, we can bring you the latest Mac rumor that someone conjured up over the weekend. Today’s Mac rumor is an updated iMac that will feature a slimmer design and will come in both Apple black and white. Word is that this new version of the all-in-one godsend will be announced during WWDC 2007. Apple will most likely charge a premium for that black paint-job considering… Read More

    Jobs Kicking-Off WWDC 2007

    Everyone loves the WWDC. Know why? Because it’s the time of the year when Steve Jobs announces some awesome new product and everyone gets out their rumor machines in the big run up, hoping that this year it’s an iWoman, a lady-sized iMac with muliple ports. This year will be no exception. Jobs is set to start WWDC 2007 with a keynote that will address Mac OS X Leopard. Developers… Read More

    More Insight Into Leopard Delay

    Yeah, yeah, we know already know that Mac OS X 10.5—Leopard to you and me—has been delayed until October. And we kinda know that the delay is because of the iPhone. But what does that even mean? A Silicon Valley analyst has surmised that the iPhone is so complicated to that, last minute, Apple had to pull a bunch of developers off Leopard to help work out some of the iPhone’s… Read More
