Don’t expect Apple to unveil the Retina MacBook Air on Monday

If the old expression “where there is smoke, there is fire” holds true, Apple is without question developing a new version of its popular MacBook Air laptop. According to countless reports from sources that range from small Apple blogs to giant news organizations, the new notebook computer will feature a reimagined design that is even slimmer than the current model, and a 12-inch display with Retina resolution.

While a rumor on Wednesday suggested that the new Air model would finally debut next week at Apple’s press conference, a new report states that almost certainly will not be the case. More →

Apple is supposedly going to refresh its MacBook line soon, both by upgrading the regular 11- and 13-inch models and by releasing a brand-new redesigned 12-inch MacBook Air model that should be slimmer than any previous laptop made by the company. After a report reveled that the company might introduce the 12-inch Retina MacBook Air at its March 9th event, a leak from China is now listing alleged specs for the less exciting models of the 2015 Air family.

New report claims the iPhone 6s will give Apple fans something they’ve wanted for a long time

New report claims the iPhone 6s will give Apple fans something they’ve wanted for a long time

AppleInsider is reporting that the next-gen iPhone 6s models will reportedly see significant performance improvements thanks to the inclusion of 2GB of RAM. Current iPhone models sport 1GB of RAM, and while that’s certainly enough to provide zippy performance, an extra gig of memory will only make the overall user experience that much better. Just as important, it gives developers the ability to really push their iOS apps to the next level. More →

Apple Watch Review

Apple Watch already being called a flop for the stupidest reasons imaginable

Apple Watch already being called a flop for the stupidest reasons imaginable

With the Apple Watch set to launch in about a month or so, I’ll be the first to admit that there’s no guarantee Apple’s foray into the wearables market will be a rousing success. Indeed, what makes the release of the Apple Watch so incredibly interesting and exciting is that we truly don’t know how popular the device is going to be.

That said, a recent opinion piece from Mark Wilson over at Fast Company posits that the Apple Watch is going to be a complete flop. Now there’s nothing wrong with having that point of view, but in constructing his piece, Wilson conveniently stretches the truth and in some instances twists and bends his “facts” to fit a preconceived narrative.
