MacBook Air

It looks dangerously thin, I’d actually be a little afraid to touch it at this point. I’m not really digging the wedge shape so much, but maybe it’ll grow on me. It’s got flash memory which should provide better battery life as well as being instantly-on like the iPad. The leaked innards were pretty on the mark, as that’s exactly what the real MBA looks like. There are two USB ports now, and they’re fixed rather than being mounted on an opening panel. An SD card reader has also been added, making Air a bit more useful. There are also two versions- a 13.3 inch and an 11.6 inch version. Now, 11 inches seems to be treading pretty close to netbook territory, and didn’t Apple say they were never building a netbook? Pricing goes from $999 to $1699, which will definitely make these better sellers than the previous MBA. I can already see college students everywhere snatching them up, as the 13 inch MacBook Pro is a huge hit with them already.

Mac App Store

C’mon, we all saw this happening. It’s convenient for average users, and the auto-update feature is much appreciated as well. But please keep Mac OS X open, as in allow anybody to develop for it and not have to pass through Apple’s draconian App Store review process.

Garageband 2011

So apparently it has this feature which corrects bad timing, it’s like autotune but for bad guitarists. Maybe I’m being a bit too cynical when I can already foresee a whole new generation of pop music where musicians can’t even stay in 4/4 time. Joy to the world.
