Mac Pro Unavailable for Reservation at Numerous Apple Stores

No comments:



The Mac Pro is unavailable for in-store reservation at numerous Apple Stores suggesting a refresh might be coming, according to a MacRumors report.

One MacRumors reader has pointed out to us that Apple's somewhat-hidden Reserve and Pick Up program is currently showing the company's Mac Pro models as "Unavailable" for reservation at his local retail store in Canada, possibly hinting at an imminent update. According to the tipster, the Mac Pro was seeing full availability for reservations at his store as recently as yesterday.

A recent report by AppleInsider said that Apple has a 12-core Xeon-based Mac Pro and a 27-inch LED Cinema Display in its labs. HardMac is also predicting it will feature USB 3.0 and a faster Firewire interface (1600 or 3200).

LG Can't Meet iPad Demand Until Next Year

No comments:



LG has announced that it is having difficulties in supplying flat-panels to Apple for the iPad and may not be able to fill orders from other companies, according to the WSJ.

The South Korean company says it should be able to supply demand by the second quarter of next year.

"Apple is ordering more and more displays but it isn't something we can be able to respond quickly," Chief Executive Kwon Young-soo said Thursday. "I am not sure whether we can be able to meet orders from other companies for similar products, but we will be able to supply the displays without fail...by the second quarter of next year."

"The only limitation on iPad sales now is production and not demand," said Rhoda Alexander, director of market research firm iSuppli Corp. "Apple has taken a very controlled approach introducing this product to new markets, with manufacturing limitations likely being the major inhibitor on how quickly iPad sales expand."

LG Display is planning to invest about $512 million to build a new production line that can produce mobile displays for the iPad and similar devices. The new line should have a monthly capacity of 20,000 glass sheets and be operational by the fourth quarter of 2011.

Apple has announced that the white iPhone 4 will be delayed yet another time.

Apple has announced that the white iPhone 4 will be delayed yet another time.

White models of Apple’s new iPhone® 4 have continued to be more challenging to manufacture than we originally expected, and as a result they will not be available until later this year. The availability of the more popular iPhone 4 black models is not affected.

It is thought that challenges faced by Apple's glass supplier, Lens Technology, are responsible for the delays.

Thief nabbed 10 minutes after snatching iPhone with tracking app

No comments:



Some thieves just don't have luck on their side, like Horatio Toure, who thought he saw easy money when he spotted a woman walking down the street waving a shiny new iPhone.

According to the San Francisco PD Toure rode up on his bike, snatched the phone out the woman's hand, and sped off down the street. The only problem is the woman had been sent out by her boss at Covina Labs, as part of a test to demonstrate the company's new phone tracking software. Once she ran back into the office, the Covina staff called the cops and gave them second-by-second updates on Toure's location. Ten minutes later he was arrested and booked on suspicion of grand theft and possession of stolen property.

"This reminds me of the bank robber who arrives during the security test," said Covina Labs CEO David Kahn, owner of the phone in question. He also pointed out that they could have activated the iPhone's microphone to listen in, or taken a picture remotely, but they didn't want to alert the thief to its special features.

Covina Labs' Alert & Respond software is designed for military and police users, as a way to locate personnel when they can't respond directly.
