    We have all been anticipating the lunch of a brand new MacBook Air for a while now. This rumor is also re-enforced with the fact earlier this month intel began to ship its new Broadwell chips to manufacturers like apple. Bordwell brings on the great features of Haswell but with less heat. It's part of intel's Tick-Tock process.

    A die shrinkage isn't all that's coming to broadwell, some minor video improvements have been confirmed for the chip. Which adds VP8 hardware decoding, as well as two independent stream decoders to boost video decoding performance and speed. The TDP can be as little as 3.5W and as high as 4.5 Watts.
     
    This is great news for apple! despite only being dual core processors, these pack a powerful punch, allowing apple to create a smaller MacBook without compromising size, battery life or performance. In fact some rumors clam that it'll be even thinner then the current MacBook Air! Stunning!
     
    Let me know if you're as excited as I am about what apple has in store for us in the upcoming months!

    Apple has done something it hasn’t done before with a major release of OS X, announcing today during its iPad event that it will release OS X Mavericks, the latest version of its desktop OS, later today for free to all users.
     
    Mavericks is available starting today for iMac and MacBook Pros from 2007 or later, 2008 MacBook Air, MacBook, and Mac Pro or later, and the 2009 Mac mini or later.
     
    Apple first showed off Mavericks back in June at its WWDC developer conference and has since seeded several betas as well as Golden Master release followed by silent update to the GM release that could likely be the version Apple ships later this month.
     
    Despite not receiving a radical visual overhaul like iOS 7, OS X Mavericks includes over 200 new features and many big new user facing features like iBooks, improved multiple display support, iCloud Keychain, new Finder features, Maps, quick reply and lock screen notifications, auto-updating apps, and a number of under the hood enhancements to improve battery life and performance.

    Today, iPhone users will be able to download the latest and greatest iOS iteration, deemed by Apple's Tim Cook as the biggest change to iOS since the iPhone. Will users embrace this new world? Or will they rather stay out, just like happens with then much anticipated Microsoft's Windows 8? The dice have already been rolled, but Apple better learned from Microsoft's mistakes, for its own good.

    The biggest change perhaps began when Apple senior industrial designer, Jonathan Ive, also took over iOS design, after former iOS chief designer Scott Forstall. This is big deal: it's the first time ever this happens in the Cupertino giant's realm. Never a designer had so much power in the company. Not coincidentally, iOS7 will be a departure from much we know about iOS. Expect a less skeuomorphic, more flat design. Ironically, something in the lines Microsoft has been doing for a while with its Windows Phone user interface. (http://news.cnet.com/8301-13579_3-57603350-37/behold-jonathan-ives-apple/)
     
    Developers will have to adapt, and this adaptation period could lead to some trouble and this is a thing Apple should be a lot concerned with: since Android consolidated itself as serious competition - and market-share leader after that - one of the most heralded advantages of iOS devices to their usually cheaper Android alternatives was the solid rock stability of iOS, at the expense of user and developer's control of the environment. iOS has been up to now a safe and joyful garden with huge walls. Will costumers be willing to be inside this walls if it becomes not so safe and joyful? I don't think so, and neither do Apple, so they released tight rules for the App Store concerning the new iOS: in a few words, the apps which cannot adapt will be left out. I'm sure most developers had plenty of time to make the necessary changes with the various iOS7 betas, but it won't be surprising if a significant number of apps seem to be a little rushed out. (http://gigaom.com/2013/09/14/why-ios-7-forced-developers-to-redesign-their-apps-for-experienced-smartphone-users/)
     
    So, we're all waiting. It will be exciting? It will be frustrating? Today we'll know.
