Unboxing Live 055: 27-inch Apple iMac

Posted by Andru Edwards Categories: Apple, Features, Videocasts

When Apple introduced the latest generation of to the world, and made it known that they were able to get that LED-backlit display up to 27-inches, we knew it would not only be a gorgeous machine, but it would pretty much be right up there with a low-end Mac Pro if specced out right. We immediately picked up one of the new 27-inch iMacs to put out theory to the test, but in the meantime, we’ve got an unboxing video for you that shows off the ridiculously huge Mac, as well as the little design tweaks and changes that Apple has made to the iMac line since the previous generation.

iPad gains screen rotation lock, loses mute

iPad screen orientation lock

Looks like Apple has been hard at work making some final tweaks to the design and functionalist of the . As you can see in the image above, previously there was a mute switch above the volume rocker, similar to what you’d find on an iPhone or iPod touch, but now that switch has been reassigned to provide a different function. It’s not a quick way to enable and disable the automatic screen rotation when turning the device from landscape to portrait. Our thoughts on this one? Good move.

Don’t forget, you can now pre-order your iPad.

iPad pre-order

Just a quick heads up to any of you who want to get in on all that hot action as soon as you possibly can. As of this morning, you can pre-order the Apple iPad, you know, their magical and revolutionary device, and have it delivered to your doorstep on April 3rd (although, if you pre-order the 3G version, that’ll ship in late April.) If you are the more adventurous type, you can also head on over to your local Apple Store and pre-order there, and your iPad will be ready for pick-up there on April 3rd. Probably your best bet if you don’t want to be sitting at home all day on a Saturday, waiting impatiently for UPS to show. Either way, get to it!

HP shows off Slate running Flash and Air

Posted by Andru Edwards Categories: Handhelds, Videos

At , Microsoft gave us a sneak peek at the Windows 7-based slate tablet device. We didn’t get much info at all, but more has trickled out since then. However, now HP is taking an obvious jab at Apple and the , having released the video above that shows off the slate tablet running Flash and Adobe Air, right on the device. Of course, the highlight here comes near the end, when the person playing with the HP Slate pulls up Hulu and begins watching content right on the device, something that the iPad can’t do just yet (although we are hearing that Hulu is working hard to become iPad-compatible.) Hey, one thing the iPad has on the Slate? It has a solid launch date that is just a little over 3 weeks away.

Safari 4.0.5

Apple just released an update to Safari 4, and you can download Safari 4.0.5 right now by firing up Software Update, or by simply hitting the Safari product page and downloading it there. According to Apple, you get a few performance and stability improvements (always a good thing,) as well as some bug fixes. Can’t complain about any of that, right?

Oh, and if you are on OS X and run something like Saft, be sure to wait before installing the update, in case it breaks your plugins and add-ons.

 


Adobe answers Steve Jobs and his thoughts on Flash on iPad and iPhone

Posted by Andru Edwards Categories: Apple, Handhelds, Software, Videos

Our pal Robert Scoble sat down with Anup Murarka, the Director of Technology Strategy and Partner Development for the Flash platform, and asked him about his thoughts on the perception that Steve Jobs has been giving to the press and consumers regarding Flash. You know, thinks like that it is a battery killer, crashes all the time, etc. Anup talks about Flash being implemented on mobile devices, their public bug tracker, and the significant enhancements in Flash 10.1 that seem to be overlooked.

It all sounds good, but still, don’t expect to see Flash running on your anytime soon.
