What we might see in Apple’s WWDC2011

Apple’s World Wide Developer Conference 2011 is just round the corner. Apple for the past few WWDC has been very focus on showing and telling the developers what is up and coming for the year. But they also did not forget the consumers, and always take the chance to introduce new products.

So what will we see in this year’s WWDC?

  • iOS 5 – Yes, Finally we will have a preview of what iOS 5 will be. It might be more tabletish, having more multi-tasking features, more features to make use of the screen real estate of iPad.
  • Lion OS – Lion has been one of the main focus for the past 2 conference Apple held. This will be the final one, showing us the final product of what Lion will look like.
  • iPhone 4S – I think iPhone 4S will not ship so soon, because White iPhone 4 just launched not long ago, but who knows Apple might surprise us with a new iPhone
  • Macbook Air – MBA has been a success, and it is close to its refresh period. Thus we might see a Macbook Air with Thunderbolt and Sandy Bridge
  • Mac Pro – Apple recently killed XServe, and Mac Pro is the “replacement”. I’m thinking Apple will redesign Mac Pro to be “mountable” so as to better used in Data Center

Let’s hope we will have a exciting WWDC2011!


Hitler wants to save Apple’s Xserve too… [Video]

Save Apple Xserve

I myself is not a Apple Xserve user, but I’m sure a lot of companies, especially media related companies actually built their company from ground up with Apple products, which includes Mac Pro, Mac Mini, iMac and even Xserve. So how much impact will be on them after Apple killed Xserve? I’m sure it will be huge!

Current there are not really something that can directly replace Xserve, not Mac Mini Server, not even Mac Pro. So what do power users or corporate can do to save it? Go to SaveTheXserve to sign your petition to show your support for it.

Meanwhile, check out how Hitler tries to save the Xserve too:

Apple Event: Back to the Mac on 20th October 2010

Apple have confirmed that there will be an Event on 20th October 2010 call Back to the Mac. Of course from the event name itself, we can tell it will be focusing on Mac. So what will be refresh this time round?

We all know most of Mac’s product line has been refreshed this year or late last year, they are Macbook, Macbook Pro, iMac, Mac Pro, Mac Mini and even Apple TV if you count it in. So what product is not refresh? Of Course it is Macbook Air! We haven’t seen any updates to Air for quite a while, and it might be time for an update before christmas.

But look at the picture of the Event, Lion. Yes, a new OS should be coming to us soon. I won’t be surprise to also see iLife to be updated together with Mac OS as iLife haven’t receive any updates for almost 2 years. It will be a very cool update I suppose else we won’t have to wait for 2 years for it!

So Stay tuned for more information on the Apple Back to the Mac Event, and we will be blogging about it!

Magic Trackpad is here! iMac and Mac Pro users no longer jealous of MacBook Pro Users

Apple Magic TrackPad

One of the most innovative thing that was included in Macbook and Macbook Pro is their Trackpad, where you can have multi-touch gestures that will do scrolling, flipping and zooming. This is something that no iMac or Mac Pro users can have, Apple released the first ever multi-touch Magic Mouse last year, but the gesture you can use are still quite limited.

Yesterday Apple released their new Apple Magic Trackpad, it is virtually taken out from Macbook Pro and reproduced into this new Apple Magic Trackpad, with bluetooth added. Now you can use the full multi-touch gestures that you normally use on Macbook Pro, swipe, pinch to zoom, scroll and more.

So who will benefit and what use will it have?

With Apple launching this Magic Trackpad, I can see users replacing it for their magic mouse or normal mouse, as anyone who have used Macbook Pro Trackpad will say that it is the best trackpad they have ever use. It can be said to be as easy to use as any mouse but can do more functions like pinch to zoom, swipe and even scroll with 2 or 3 fingers.

So who else will be interested in buying? Home Entertainment System owners! They have been looking for something like that for years!!! If your Home Entertainment System, let’s say a Mac Mini is plugged to your Television, it is not easy to use a mouse. You need to have a mouse pad or a table to do scrolling and pointing. With this Apple Magic Trackpad, you can use it on your lap and scroll and point like any other laptop you have. I believe this will be huge for Home Entertainment System users.

Apple Magic Trackpad can be buy from any Apple Store now or you can go to Apple website to purchase it.
