4 10 2008

After a much too long break from blogging I’m back.  I’m still pretty busy with school but i’ll try to get out at least a post per day.

 

Check out the current rumors page for all the rumors we’ve covered.





NVIDIA allegedly showing new MacBooks to staff

4 10 2008

A new rumor claims that Apple’s long-rumored new MacBooks are making the rounds among NVIDIA’s workers as evidence of its hardware prowess, and adds that the public itself might not have to wait much longer for its own turn.  The rumored release date is October 14th.  These Macbooks will include NVIDIA graphic chips which will be great for gamers as the intel internal X1300 is hardly a chip for anyone but casual gamers.  Hopefully Apple will pay more attention to the gaming market and sign deals with more game developers other than EA.

More iPod Nano 4G confirmations!

8 09 2008

Hi everyone, looks like this will be the new design for the iPod Nano.  I new “spy photo” (- Engadget) has been taken of the iPod Nano.  Apparently in it’s actually packaging.  Here it is:

The only thing I can see in this picture that might not be believable is the gradient that the coloring has.  Although it does look nice, its a little off the Apple look.





What is the point of this microsoft ad? The world may never know.

7 09 2008

Ok… here is the new microsoft ad.  The whole thing is about a minute 20 seconds and, only about 15 of that talks about their product!  Horrible and… it’s the most boring ad I’ve ever seen!





iTunes 8 Features

7 09 2008

According to Ars Tecnica, iTunes 8 will have a many new features.  “a “Genius” feature that can build playlists from “songs in your library that go great together.” Genius will also include a Genius Sidebar, which really sounds like just a refreshing of the MiniStore already included in iTunes. We aren’t sure whether the Genius Sidebar will use smarter technology to recommend iTunes Store music that is truly like the music in your library or the currently playing song.

Another major new feature is the arrival of HD for TV shows, and Rose says customers will be able to download HD content to iTunes. This is very interesting when you consider the current state of HD in the iTunes Store, as only a small collection of movies are currently offered in 720p HD, and even then, only for the Apple TV.

If you’re already burned out on the fancy Cover Flow mode for flipping through your artists and albums, Rose says a new Grid view is coming. It isn’t hard to imagine what this will look like, but we certainly hope this new view isn’t limited to just music. Lastly, a new music visualizer is also said to be on the way. Apparently, people still use music visualizers in iTunes.” – Ars Technica, 2008

 

Although these new features are great, one more great feature would be some features for organizing music on multiple computers, or being able to watch a folder for files and add new ones to your library.

 

Ars Tecnica believes that iTunes 8 won’t be available by September 9th when the new iPods will be announced.  I sure hope it is though!

2 09 2008

Our spicy, siesta loving friends over at Engadget Spanish just nabbed a hands-on with Hama’s iPod nano 4G case on the floor of IFA. The tip came in anonymously about an hour ago and sure enough, there it is, buried in a mountain of iPod accessories and sharing the same smooth arc of the Kevin Rose nano — as it will from henceforth be known.
