New MacBook Pros to Run Operating System Off a 8-16GB SSD?

No comments:



Apple's update to the MacBook Pro may bring a larger trackpad and an 8-16GB SSD that the operating system will run off, according to BGR.

We are told that the new laptops will contain glass trackpads that are even larger than the pads found on current-generation MacBook Pro models. The next bit of information doesn’t quite make sense to us, but we have been told the OS on the laptops will be loaded to a separate (internal) 8-16GB SSD while everything else will remain on the regular hard drive. There will be options for just SSD drives but the base models will feature regular hard disks with the SSD combo for the OS.

The report also states that the new notebooks will be half a pound lighter on average and be released within the next two weeks.

MacTrust has previously predicted that the notebooks will feature a better battery, be lighter, have an improved display, and offer a modular drive. MacRumors has confirmed with a source that the MacBook Pros will be released on Thursday, February 24th.

New Amazon Kindle Commercial Again Takes Aim at iPad Video

No comments:



The new Amazon Kindle commercial, "The Book Lives On", again takes aim at the iPad's susceptibility to glare.

Recently, analyst Ming-Chi Kuo of Concord Securities reported that the iPad 2 will gain a thinner, anti-reflective display rather than a higher resolution one.

Take a look at the ad below...

Apple Patent Describes Safe Deposit Box in the Cloud

No comments:



Apple has filed a patent for a new Safe Deposit Box feature that would automatically encrypt and store your important files in the cloud, according to Patently Apple.

Apple's patent is about a safe deposit box for securing important user files. In one aspect, when a user drags-and-drops a file representation onto a safe deposit box icon, the file is secured. In another aspect, when a user selects the safe deposit box icon and verifies his or her identity, the user could access secured files through a safe deposit box window.

Advantages perceived by this invention include first and foremost that files could be securely stored and that copies of important files could be automatically generated and protected. In addition, file loss could be minimized; confidential information within a file could be protected; users could more easily secure the files that matter the most to them; users could be provided with an interface for protecting valuables that mimics a physical safe deposit box at a bank, a personal safe, or another way of safekeeping valuables. And lastly, the safe deposit box interface could allow access to files for only short periods of time to minimize the risk of an unauthorized user viewing the files.

A key aspect of the Safe Deposit Box feature is that your files could be stored off site; perhaps using MobileMe or even another location you specify. "the user computer is also optionally coupled to one or more remote storage devices 412 through a network 414 (e.g., the Internet). The remote storage devices could be, for example, other computers such as a server bank or cloud storage."

It's thought that this could be one of the features Apple introduces in Mac OS X Lion.
