Redesigned Mac mini: HDMI, SD card reader, unibody aluminum enclosure

Posted by Andru Edwards Categories: Apple, PC / Laptop

Mac mini unibody

Earlier tonight, the Store went down, and we all figured it was just so that they could get the pre-order page for the up and running—imagine our surprise when we saw a completely redesigned waiting for us as well. The new Mac mini looks gorgeous, sporting a redesigned aluminum unibody enclosure. Even better, this is the first Mac that has an HDMI port built right in, which makes this perfect for hooking up to a television to turn into a media centric computer. Other niceties include an SD card reader on the back, 802.11n Wi-Fi, Mini DisplayPort, and the NVIDIA GeForce 320M graphics chip, which Apple says provides twice the graphics performance as the previous mini. Rounding things out are a 2.4 GHz Core 2 Duo chip, 2GB RAM, and a 320GB hard drive. The unibody enclosure was made in such a way that you could remove a panel on the bottom to easily get to the RAM—any owner of the previous Mac mini can attest to the horrific things you had to go through to upgrade the Mac mini RAM, so this is a welcome change.

The Snow Leopard Server model of the Mac mini remains as well, packing in two 500GB drives (and removing the SuperDrive,) alongside 4GB RAM and a 2.66GHz Intel Core 2 Duo processor. You can order the new Mac Mini now for $699, while the server version sells for $999.

ATT won’t have any white iPhone 4 units at launch [UPDATED]

Posted by Andru Edwards Categories: Apple, Cell Phones, Rumors

At&T white iphone 4 delay

So tomorrow is when pre-orders start for the , and it looks like an internal AT&T document shows that the carrier won;t have any of the white iPhone 4 units in stock at launch. As you can see in the image, if correct, you’ll be able to get an iPhone 4 or iPhone 3GS in black from AT&T at launch. You can also pre-order these models starting tomorrow. However, the white iPhone 4 won’t be available from AT&T until “later this summer.”

We are gonna assume that, if true, this will be the case with other third-party stores that will be offering the iPhone 4 on launch day as well. Stores like Wal-Mart, Best Buy, and Radio Shack will all sell iPhone 4 on day one, but if AT&T won’t have white for launch, we are guessing that Apple is keeping the white ones to themselves. In fact, Deutsche Telekom just announced on Twitter that they won’t have the white iPhone 4 at launch either. That means you’ll need to pre-order from Apple for delivery, or wait in line at an Apple Store.

UPDATE: As it turns out, even Apple won’t have white iPhone 4 units available at launch!

Wal-Mart, Radio Shack, Best Buy to sell iPhone 4 on June 24

iPhone 4 Wal-Mart

Looks like is looking to thin some of those long iPhone lines that have become a yearly summer tradition. It has just been announced that Wal-Mart will be selling the on June 24th, which is the day the phone goes on sale. In the past, Wal-Mart would sell iPhones well after the launch date, so this is a first for them. It’s smart, as there are way more Wal-Mart stores in the country than Apple stores.

In addition, Radio Shack has been telling customers that they would also be selling the new iPhone on launch day as well, bringing that store back into relevancy for the first time since 1992. Lastly, Best Buy has yet to officially announce launch day plans, but they did sell both the iPhone 3G and iPhone 3GS at launch, so this should be no different.

Of course, you’ll also be able to buy the iPhone 4 directly at an Apple Store as well as any AT&T store as well. That’s a lot of options, and that’s not even taking into account that you’ll be able to pre-order the iPhone 4 starting on June 15th so that it is shipped directly to you, thus avoiding lines altogether.

ATT video on iPhone 4 upgrades and data plans

We broke down the iPhone 4 AT&T upgrade pricing along with the method for easily checking your iPhone upgrade eligibility for you a few days ago, but we figured we’d share the video that AT&T put together on the subject as well. Basically, it’s that odd “Seth the Blogger Guy” from AT&T talking about what you can expect as either a current or new customer as it pertains to iPhone pricing and eligibility, as well as the new DataPlus and DataPro plans.


Trade in your iPhone for cash and cover the cost of the iPhone 4!

Get cash for iPhone trade in

Over on the Gear Live Twitter account, we’ve been talking about a partnership we would be forming with Gazelle so that those of you with an original iPhone, iPhone 3G, or iPhone 3GS could trade in your device for cash. Why would you wanna do that? Well, with the set to be released in about two weeks, the easiest way to upgrade is to sell your current device to get cash to put down towards the new one. In fact, depending on the condition of your current model, you could even walk away with enough money to cover the cost of a new iPhone 4, and have some left over to put in the bank (or to buy a case or something.) If you want to take a look at what you could get for trading in your current iPhone, here’s the list:

Just choose your iPhone model above, and full in the four questions that ask about the condition of your phone, and you’ll see the amount that you will be paid for your device. If you are cool with it, accept the offer, and you ship your phone. Couldn’t get any easier.

Safari 5: Extensions, Reader, HTML5, Bing. Oh, and it’s fast.

Posted by Andru Edwards Categories: Apple, Internet, Software

Safari 5 features

Apparently, the release of Safari 5 wasn’t big enough to be mentioned in the this morning, but nevertheless, the company has launched a fully-updated version of its browser. So, what’s new? Quite a bit, actually. First, Safari 5 is much faster—it runs Javascript 25% faster than Safari 4, is twice as fast as Firefox on the Mac, and is even 3% faster than Chrome. So yeah, it’s fast. There’s also a new feature called Safari Reader. If you hit a web page that has an article on it, you can hit the Reader icon, and the article will be overlaid over the site in a very readable fashion. Another biggie is the addition of a bunch of extra HTML5 features. As we know, Apple is all about supporting HTML5 as a platform, and they are putting their money where their mouth is by having Safari 5 be the browser with the most HTML5 support at the moment. Oh, and for those of you who want more choice in your search bar, Safari 5 offers Bing as a search option, built-in, alongside Google and Yahoo! Search.

You can download Safari 5 now.
