Bleeding Edge TV 355: Orange iPhone 4 Bumper Case

When the launched, there was a rush and quick shortage of the iPhone 4 . When Apple announced the cases, there were five colors announced (black, white, orange, blue, green, and pink,) but when the device launched, only the black case was available. The other colors are still super-hard to find, and currently have a three-week wait time when ordering them from the Apple Store. We were able to get our hands on the orange Bumper Case, and give you a quick video showing it off. Oh, and yes, we put it on backwards.

You can pick up an iPhone 4 Bumper Case from Apple for $29.

Bleeding Edge TV 352: Unibody Mac mini vs. Original Mac mini

A couple of week ago, introduced a completely redesigned , sporting a unibody enclosure along with an HDMI port and SD card slot. The new machine is much thinner than the original design, which the mini has been sporting for about five years now, and we figured we’d give you an up-close comparison of the two models so that you can see both the obvious changes, as well as the more subtle ones.

Unboxing Live 058: Apple Mac mini unibody 2010

Apple just released a brand new, completely redesigned Mac mini, sporting a new unibody enclosure. We quickly got our hands on the new mini, which also sports other notable improvements (SD card slot, HDMI port, upgraded NVIDIA graphics chip,) so that we could get to work on testing for our review. In the meantime, though, we figured we’d get an episode of Unboxing Live put together, so that we could give you a look at what’s in the box, and also the unit itself. Apple did a fantastic job at reducing the size of the new Mac mini, while adding a bunch of function.

You can buy the new Mac mini now from Apple.

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.

Sex and the City: Carrie Becomes a PC


Carrie Bradshaw’s Mac has become a staple of the character, as identifiable with as Manolo Blahniks. But all that’s going to change in the Sex sequel, where Carrie will become a PC. Hi, I’m astounded.

Carrie’s Mac became far more than a prop through the course of the six-season series. An entire episode (“My Motherboard, My Self”) was devoted to the device. It also played a large role in the two-part series finale, serving as a metaphor for Carrie’s true self. Now, all that’s being stripped away thanks to advertising agreements and (I suspect) studio interference.

Hewlett-Packard computers (and only HP computers) will be featured in the new movie. will also be featured in upcoming ads for the computer company. Carrie Bradshaw would never sell herself out for some extra movie-making money - remember how she flat-out rejected the Season 5 book cover mock-up? The switch is one that will be noticed only by die-hard Sexers, but it’s a jolting difference all the same.

New MacBook Air update coming tomorrow?

Posted by Andru Edwards Categories: Apple, PC / Laptop, Rumors,

MacBook Air update

Macworld.au is reporting that a “well-placed source” familiar with Apple and their inventory and refresh schedules is now saying that there may be a MacBook Air update happening very soon—in fact, it could come as soon as tomorrow. There is apparently a new Apple product number out there, that being MC516LL/A K87 BETTER BTR-USA. The ‘BETTER’ portion of that number most likely points to it being in the Mac product line, and the MacBook Air is well overdue for an update. Now, the source also says that it may point to a new 27-inch LED Cinema Display, since that seems to be coming soon as well. However, there are thousands of these apparently headed to Australia, which would be more in line with a major new product revision.
