    Today at Apple's event we're already moving past streaming media and onto mobile hardware. While we're not quite to the highly anticipated Apple Watch news just yet, Apple's got some exciting developments for its laptop lineup, announcing the next generation MacBook. The incredibly thin MacBook measures just 13.1mm thick, thinner than even the 11-inch MacBook Air, while sporting its own 2304 x 1440 12-inch display. It weighs a scant two pounds, making it Apple's lightest notebook computer ever. A new keyboard makes the keycaps larger while delivering a new, thinner switch mechanism, for a ...

    Google has not only pioneered the whole concept of bringing usable maps to the internet, but it has also succeeded in giving us a much smarter way to commute through services like Google Maps. Apple tried to do the same with its launch of iOS 6, and yes, it has continue to fail to gain consumer trust even with recent software updates and fixes. The result of all this ended up being that Google Maps made its way to the iPhone, but it seems that Apple is still interested in the maps business. San Francisco radio station KPIX recently reported that a mysterious minivan was driving around the ...

    A couple of years ago, it would've been almost impossible to imagine Apple experimenting with anything outside its comfort zone. That said, the same company that was reluctant to launch a mini tablet, did with the iPad mini, and the same company that denied the need for a bigger iPhone, launched two of them with the iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus. Recent reports claim that Apple is working on a larger iPad and even a 12-inch MacBook Air, and if you've ever wondered what that will look like, have a look. Designer Martin Hajek has already garnered some significant fame for his iPhone renders in ...

    Apple is famous for many of its patents, mainly because even though most of these reach a final product, some don't. That being said, Cupertino is also famous for taking its time in not launching products until it feels ready to shine with them, and that sometimes means holding patents for years until implementation, like in the case of the iPad. Today we learn of some old Apple patents that gain a new status, and we're talking about features that competitors are already using to a certain degree. The USPTO has granted Apple a patent it filed back in 2012, and it has to do with ...

    If the rumors are to be believed, Apple is working on a larger-than-ever iPad. Certainly, its competitors are moving to capitalize on the market for larger tablets, and so it's not incredibly hard to believe that Apple may have its own eyes on that same market segment. A couple days back, we were brainstorming a little about just how a 12.9-inch iPad might work, focusing in particular on the choice of system software; iOS works great on the iPad as we know it now, but with something this large – and especially if it launches as the iPad Pro (juxtaposed with the iPad Air) – might it run ...
