The iPhone 5 may not be the only excitement on the Apple front, as new rumors point to new 13-inch Macbook Pro Retina and iMac Retina models being shipping from suppliers now.
Sources in the “upstream supply chain” report that a 13.3-inch Macbook Pro with Retina display should launch in the September to October time frame in order to target back-to-school and holiday shoppers.
The all new 15-inch MacBook Pro went through huge changes for the latest revision with the 2,880 x 1,800 Retina display and thinner, lighter frame headlining. That is certainly not all, though, including new ports, omitted hardware, and flash memory standard. [click to continue…]

It gets there via the dual Thunderbolt ports and the HDMI port.

The latest revision of the MacBook Pro is largely unchanged to the naked eye from the previous models. The big changes are CPU and the addition of the Thuderbolt interface along with the shift to the AMD Radeon HD 6750M GPU and Intel’s integrated HD Graphics 3000. Even the Thuderbolt interface is integrated into the mini display port further hiding the updated identity of the newest model. [click to continue…]
If you didn’t read the morning news, and just dropped by apple.com to check out the latest iPhone 4S, or to shop for a MacBook Pro, you were greeted by the image of Steve Jobs, who died of pancreatic cancer at age 56.
Whether you are an Apple “fan” or not, all of us can agree that America (in fact, the world) lost one of the largest visionaries in the tech world. Ideas that computers, phones, should be easy to use, are common sense today, but not when the first Mac products hit the shelves. When most experts assumed that a tablet with the funny name ‘iPad’ would fail miserably, Jobs somehow had the vision that it would be successful, and it has changed the consumer electronic landscape since its introduction.
Sure, not all of his ideas panned out, but that’s not the point. Most successful entrepreneurs experience many failures before experiencing large successes. Taking risks is part of that personality. Leaders of companies that played it safe, wonder why their company is stagnant, and products not at the head of the class.
So, who will fill the vacuum created by Jobs death? Not just at Apple, but in the tech world in general… Does anyone come to mind?
