• "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. And while that’s good news for computer makers overall, there are winners and losers in the data. The big surprising loser? Yup, Apple. Read More

  • 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

  • A one stop shop for all your MBP lid and iMac chin decal needs

    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. We’ve seen a few of these over the years, but there are a bunch that are at least brand new to me, including a Goatse decal that’s not library appropriate and a Scarface-themed decal that will make all your bros jealous.

  • 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

  • Apple Not Liable For Plagued iMac Screens, Updates Firmware Anyway

    Apple just dodged a bullet. A New York federal judge dismissed a potential class action lawsuit which alleged that Apple propagated their popular iMac screens without disclosing certain manufacturing defects to its customers, saying that the allegations were too general to be considered. The lawsuit stated that unwanted vertical lines would appear on the devices after the warranty period… Read More

  • 27-inch iMacs sucking wind, orders backing up

    The 27-inch iMac, darling of all and sundry, are having some shipping issues. Orders are currently backed up two weeks and the litany of problems, including broken displays and busted hard drives, shows us that this model wasn’t quite fully baked. Read More

  • Dear FDA, Gimme My iMac

    Today was supposed to be a joyous day in my apartment. As of yesterday, my new Apple iMac was to be delivered at some point this afternoon. But alas, it was not to be. But the reason why is a truly great WTF moment. Apparently, the U.S. Food and Drug Administration has to approve its delivery to me. Well, to be more specific, either the FDA or the Department of AG/PPQ has to approve it… Read More

  • New iMacs have finicky DisplayPorts

    Just a PSA, really: The newest iMacs are somewhat limited in their capability to be used as external monitors for your laptop. I’d consider the functionality to be a bonus to begin with, but if you were going to be relying on it, better make other plans. It seems that the DisplayPort on 27″ iMacs (there isn’t a video in on the 21.5″ ones) is a bit picky on what it takes… Read More

  • Open ye 27-inch iMacs while ye may

    iFixit has torn up the new iMac to reveal the delicate inner workings of both the machine and its attendant Magic Mouse. Obviously the biggest issue here is removing the massive piece of glass on the front, a process that requires a spunger, suction cups, and a sense that life is futile and electronics should be destroyed on camera for the edification of an audience.

  • Apple selling new 21.5- and 27-inch iMacs

    I certainly don’t want to cause a panic, but EVERYBODY PANIC! APPLE DID SOMETHING! Yes, new iMacs are here. For prompt shipping, please send your wallet to… Apple
    1 Infinite Loop
    Cupertino, CA 95014 …with a Post-It note saying “Send iMacs! Please! Hurry!” In return, you’ll get one of the following: Read More

  • Maybe, maybe not: New doubts on Blu-ray being part of the next iMac revision

    I’m not about to knock myself out for noting the 800th iMac rumor of the past few weeks, so here’s the deal: people “close” to Apple now aren’t sure whether or not Blu-ray will wind up on the next iMac revision. Blu-ray may be on Mac Pros, and maybe then only as a build-to-order option, but that’s enough “maybes” to bore a slug. Read More

  • Mac Mini and iMacs to be in short supply, update coming soon?

    Apple has apparently told its direct-sales partners like the Apple Stores not to order new iMacs or Mac Minis and don’t expect any more shipments either. This can mean only one of two things: Apple is going bankrupt or there are new models coming real soon. Read More

  • iMacs to be refreshed as soon as next week?

    There’s nothing solid on this, but the usual mysterious sources are whispering about an iMac refresh coming next week. We knew this was forthcoming, but the changes themselves are anybody’s guess. We expect upgraded CPU and GPU, possibly a slimmer design, and some people even suggest Blu-ray is in the cards. Those people aren’t right, though. If Apple was changing its mind… Read More

  • Rumor: Apple to refresh the iMacs and Macbooks soon

    Now that the new iPods have been announced, it’s time for the next round of everyone’s favorite game, What’s Apple Got For Us Next? This time research firm Wedge Partners thinks that we will see new iMacs and new Macbooks “in the next several weeks.” O rly? Read More
