Apple pledges to make Emoji more ethnically diverse

New-Emoji-1What’s the plural form of Emoji? Is it Emoji? Or Emojis? It doesn’t really matter, but what does matter is that Apple has come out to admit that Emoji are just a little too white. Following a tweet from Miley Cyrus, it appears there just might be an #emojiethnicityupdate coming in the near future. Hit the break for the details. (more…)

A retina MacBook Air is coming soon

New-Lion-Installed-Macbook-Air-2011

Apple will “soon” release a MacBook Air with a retina display, according to various rumors and supply chain sources. The computer is supposed to feature a 12″ retina display, thinner design, and perhaps even come without a fan to make it silent.

I’m incredibly excited for this computer: I love my MacBook Air, but I want a higher-resolution display. If Apple can keep the same battery life the current Airs have, all while making the computer thinner and including a high-DPI display, they’ve got a real winner. The price is also rumored to be comparable to current Airs, if not slightly cheaper in some configurations. The timeframe for this computer appears to be sometime during the summer, which would make sense if Apple hopes to target back-to-school shoppers.

Mac OS X turned 13 yesterday

thYesterday marked an anniversary that largely went unnoticed, likely due to it not ending in a “0″ or a “5.” However, Mac OS X — the operating system that continues to power the Mac line, and that even forms the basis of iOS, after many revisions and changes — turned 13. On March 24, 2001, Apple began shipping Mac OS X 10.0.

I’m a relative late-comer to the OS X world, as my first experiences were with OS X 10.5 Leopard on a Hackintosh HP Mini 1000. However, since then, I haven’t looked back: OS X has, hands down, become my operating system of choice, and it’s what makes the Mac line continue to be the best computers you can buy.
