The latest rumor surrounding MobileMe says it could be free beginning in April, and will at least temporarily coexist beside the current paid service. It’s not the first time we’ve heard about imminent MobileMe changes, but it does suggest an announcement could be coming soon.
Echoing rumors from late last week, the Wall Street Journal is weighing in with a report that Apple is gearing-up to produce a smaller, cheaper iPhone and introduce a revamped MobileMe this summer. Both moves seem motivated by Apple’s strong competition in the mobile market.
Less than six months ago, Apple launched a redesigned MacBook Air. It was almost a completely new machine, but only “almost” because the new MacBook Air still uses the “old” Core 2 Duo, same as the first. That could change soon.
The WSJ is reporting that Apple has begun production on the iPad 2, according to “people familiar with the matter.” The next-generation tablet from Apple will be thinner and lighter, with a faster processor, more memory and a better graphics processor, according to the source.
While many were busy filling faces with turkey, and filling malls to the brim on Friday, some new, interesting rumors about the iPad 2 came to light. The rumors included some obvious claims, but one seems out of left field: a built-in USB port.
Rumor has it that Apple has already filmed ads for the next iPad. British photographer David Sims was chosen to create the ads late last month at New York’s Pier 59. Current generation iPads were reportedly used during filming, to be digitally replaced in post production.
Over the weekend, we saw a slew of new rumors surrounding the new MacBook Air hit the web. The new reports suggest we might see more than one design for the ultraportable. We might also see the introduction of a new kind of notebook storage.
The New York Times is reporting that two companies with good reason to fear Apple’s (s aapl) growing influence in the tech industry recently got together to talk business. The hour-long meeting saw Microsoft CEO Steve Ballmer meet Adobe chief Shantanu Narayen at Adobe HQ.
If you were waiting for Apple (s aapl) to finally update the MacBook Air before you bought a new notebook, you’re in luck. AppleInsider’s discovered that stock of the current versions of Apple’s ultra-portable is depleted, a good sign that something new is on the way.
More and more often, I’ll reach out and touch my iMac’s display, only to remember that no, it isn’t like my iPad, and touching the screen accomplishes nothing besides fingerprints. That may change soon, if a new report by DigiTimes proves accurate.
