Apple MacBook, MacBook Pros

MacBook Pros

After a day with leaked product numbers showing up across different websites, the fairly obvious rumor has finally come true.  The Macbook Pro has been updated as well as the regular Macbook.  While no new form factor or eye catching changes, the Macbook Pro now includes a multi-touch trackpad and has benefited from increases in processor speed and more powerful graphics chips.  Of note, the apple remote is no longer included and is to be purchased seperately.  Head over to the apple store for more.

Apple Releases Aperture 2

Apple has announced the release of Aperture 2. This comes as an unexpected suprise to the TweakOSX team. Aperture is our favorite photo management software and is extremely powerful and easy to use for photo correction. The release adds over 100 new features, many which we have been hoping would appear in Aperture. Too many to list here, they include Highlight Recovery, Definition, Vibrancy, and Vignette image tools, a new UI, 50 new tutorials, and many more. To find out whats new, check out the new features page at apple. If you purchased recently (between Jan. 1, 2008 and Mar. 14, 2008), there is a small upgrade fee of $9.95, for everyone else, the price now stands at $199, thanks Apple!

Flash on iPhone is just around the corner

We’ve been waiting for Flash support to hit the iPhone ever since…well…it launched. We’ve had to make do without Flash for almost eight months, and YouTube even had to convert a bunch of their catalog to H.264 in order for the service to be enjoyed on the iPhone. Well, we’ve just got word from a reliable source that Flash support is on its way to the iPhone, and it should be coming very, very soon. Speculating a bit further on our own, we are guessing that it would be pretty convenient for Flash support to be introduced alongside the iPhone SDK, wouldn’t you say?
