Yesterday I posted a few tweets on Twitter about how amazing it would be if Apple started selling coffee, it seems like a natural progression for them and its customers. Their stores, customer service ooze appeal and selling beverages would serve it’s customers well.
Just had a thought, what if apple did coffee… Thought provoking!!
It would also introduce new customers to its stores and ever increase it’s “trendy” appeal. Today @MacTrast has posted about Apple selling “iWater” (well I made that bit up myself) but this image caught my attention because of my tweets yesterday.
What do you think of this idea, would you buy coffee or water from Apple, would you enjoy their surroundings and at the same time, pick up the latest mac or iOS device.
Today i will talk about TotalFinder, a really powerful plugin for Finder on Mac OS X.
First of all, I want to thank the developer for his awesome work! I actually use TotalFinder on my Mac and I really enjoy it ! So much better when you work on your files. I could not work properly without this app in my Mac. Continue reading→
As WWDC is only 5 days away, the Moscone (Apple’s uniform venue for events) is being decorated with banners in which relate to WWDC 2012. As you can rectify from the picture (above), the graphic relates to App icons. As ever people are reading in to what they have seen, it has been reported that due the iOS style icons shown, its almost a certainty that Apple are going to be talking about and perhaps releasing the next generation of iOS, iOS 6.

Grant Paul (@chpwn) announced on Twitter that he is not updating Spire to support iOS 5.1.x. Apple does not host decrypted copies of Siri for iOS 5.1 which means that devices running the iOS 5.1.1 firmware are not able to run Siri unless Apple releases an official version of Siri. Continue reading→
Check out our overview video, you’ll notice how similar the Hack-Store looks to the Mac App-Store. MriOSDevices is most looking forward to seeing Jailbreak apps being hosted here. I hope we can access old Jailbreaks etc, that upload sites remove after a certain amount of time, like MegaUpload etc.
Yesterday there where reports claiming a solid launch date for Intel’s new Ivy Bridge processors and also it’s next generation thunderbolt technology which are expected to launch April 23rd. It would be nice if they headed to next the Mac refresh as it offers new possibilities for Apple to create Retina Displays because of the Ivy Bridge’s low power consumption.
The Ivy Core processor offer 4 cores, 40% less power consuming that the current sandy bridge processors, Intel HD 4000 which will apparently have 200% better performance that it’s current predecessor. This means if we were to see them in the next MacBook Pro it would have a better Graphics processor plus less power consuming and USB 3.0.
This processor plus new thunderbolt technology is perfect together and gives Apple the opportunity to show what thunderbolt can do. Seeing these in new Mac refreshes will most likely happen as most of intel’s partners are making notebooks powered by the new Ivy Bridge processor.
The DSL3510 is the processor most likely to be in the new Mac desktop systems while the DSL3310 would be in the notebook platforms.
Last week there were reports of 600000 Macs being infected by what is known as the ‘Flashback Virus’ which was caused by tricking users into installing which appeared to be flash player but was really Malware. This came to a shock for a lot of people as OS X is known for it’s Virus free platform but this theory was proved wrong.
Apple responded to their promise to a fix today when they released the fix that will remove the malware from the 1% of Macs affected and will prevent all users from getting the Malware.
Hit up software update and install the 66.8MB update!
This Java security update removes the most common variants of the Flashback malware.
This update also configures the Java web plug-in to disable the automatic execution of Java applets. Users may re-enable automatic execution of Java applets using the Java Preferences application. If the Java web plug-in detects that no applets have been run for an extended period of time it will again disable Java applets.
This update is recommended for all Mac users with Java installed.
