Apple is concerned about students learning experience that is why they designed an iMac to suit their needs. The updated 21.5-inch Apple iMac is a great toll that students and educational institutions can use hence it’s dubbed as “Education Only” model.
This updated iMac is equipped with a fast 3.3GHz dual-core Intel Core i3 processor matched with Intel HD graphics 4000. Furthermore, it has a 4GB of memory and 500GB storage. This storage might not be adequate for some but then there’s always the option of getting an external hard drive right?
Apple uses its own processors in its iPhone and iPad products that it’s no wonder the company is also considering using the same for its Mac computers! It will be a practical move for them if they do because they’ll be keeping everything in the company so to speak and they would no longer have to rely on other suppliers for their needs.
According to several sources close to Apple, the company is contemplating ditching the use of Intel chips in its Mac lineup. But with this move, Apple’s Macs could become ARM based, the architecture that rivals the x86 architecture by Intel. These days most ARM chips are mostly found in tablets and smartphones.
Two executives at Apple are leaving the company. Apple announced the exit of Scott Forstall who is in charge of Apple’s mobile software unit and retail chief John Browett on Monday.
Although Apple did not state the reason for their departure from the company, some people who refused to be named said that the two were fired from their posts! Apparently, Forstall refused to sign a letter apologizing for the faults and deficiencies of the recently-launched Apple mapping service. Chief Executive Tim Cook signed instead.
Apple iOS fanatics are possibly thrilled with the new clock application that accompanies the iOS 6. That thrill might be short-lived because Apple apparently copied the clock’s design from the iconic clock of the Swiss Federal Railway! This is totally a big deal because the clock’s trademark and copyrighted is owned by the railway.
It looks like the iPad Mini is really about to become a reality! In fact, in less than two months time the iPad Mini will be finally unveiled!
AllThingsD reported during the weekend that the iPad Mini will be revealed in October! And it seems, it will be a grand event as Apple is also planning something special for its unveiling.
But prior to the iPad Mini’s arrival, Apple will first reveal the next-generation iPhone, the iPhone 5 if that is what they’ll call it. The iPhone 5 will be unveiled on September 12 in California. After the launch, the iPhone 5 is expected to start shipping on September 21 to be exact.
The competition between Apple and Google has become more serious with Apple deciding to remove Google’s YouTube App from its next-generation iOS! Apple’s move is really kind of surprising considering YouTube has been featured as a core application in the iPhone and iPhone since 2007.
Apple lost one of its most talented and skilled architects to AMD. Jim Keller previously worked at Apple where his job is listed as the A4/A5 Designer & K8 Lead Architect. His job at Apple is a pretty big deal so now that he’s gone, no doubt Apple’s team and workflow couldn’t help but be affected.
Now that he’s at AMD, Keller will be working under Mark Papermaster, also a former iPhone employee who was released from his job there in 2010. Kelly will be the one in charge of AMD’s microprocessor core design efforts that will be focused on creating high-performance and low-power cores. This seems to be the foundation of the company’s future endeavors.
I know many of you are excited for the iPhone 5. There have been many rumors about this next generation iPhone over the past few months but nothing really solid has been revealed as to how the iPhone 5 will look exactly, until now.
A Chinese repair shop called iLab has posted photos of what it claims as the iPhone 5. These photos are the closest thing we have right now of what Apple’s next iPhone will look like. iLab’s iPhone 5 is made up of repair parts for the new iPhone. They’ve assembled the case, buttons, cables and screws to what the next-generation iPhone will supposedly look like.
I know that lots of people, especially Apple fans, are still hyped up over the release of the new OS X 10.8 Mountain Lion yesterday. But I think that aside from being hyped up, some are having some delusions over the Mountain Lion photo!
It appears that a lot of people on Twitter and Facebook are saying that the Mountain Lion Image is actually Steve Jobs’ face! Have you heard anything so idiotic? They say that it is based on the late Apple founder’s official biography cover photo. They say that it is some kind of homage to the late Steve Jobs.
Things have taken a turn for the worst for Apple regarding their case that Samsung copied their design for the iPad in their own Galaxy Tab. Just last week, July 9 to be exact, a UK Judge dismissed Apple’s claims saying that Samsung’s Galaxy Tab was “not as cool” as the iPad.
Still in connection with that ruling, Apple has now been slapped with the worst punishment ever! UK Judge Colin Birss has ordered Apple to publish a notice to the public through websites, newspaper and magazines in the UK that the Samsung Galaxy Tab does not copy Apple’s iPad design.
Could the unveiling of the OS X Mountain Lion be imminent? Apple announced that they will be launching the operating system this July but the question is what date? Because of Apple’s refusal to reveal the date, people are now only relaying on speculations and possible clues and cues.
The latest clue is the news that Apple Stores will be holding planned overnights in its various stores in the United States and overseas on July 24. As some Apple enthusiasts already know, “overnights” usually means that Apple has something major coming up and it gives employees time to prepare their store’s display for whatever’s coming.
Rumors about the Apple iPad Mini are back with vengeance! The latest is that, Apple’s iPad Mini will be a 7.85-inch device! As you know, this is considerably smaller than all the 9.7-inch iPads released in the market in the past years and months. And according to Bloomberg, this 7.85-inch mini iPad will have a 1024 x 768 resolution.
Moreover, the iPad Mini will have the same number of pixels as the previous iPads. Not the New iPad with the Retina Display.

It’s also way beyond the $666.66 original retail price in 1976. The unit was won by an unknown person who bid on the item through phone!
