A Baker's Dozen Tips for Spring Cleaning Your Mac

Whether you're a recent convert, ambivalent veteran or one of those hardened Apple fanboys, let us remind you: a Mac, like any other computer, needs to be maintained. No, you probably don't need anti-virus software (yet), you may never have to fiddle with registry editing, and you'll likely never need to reinstall the operating system. But you may face a kernel panic, a raft of mysterious app...

Apple Launches Magic Trackpad, Updates Displays and Desktops

Apple went a little retail happy this morning, updating its iMac, Mac Pro and Cinema Display lines, all while introducing the new Magic Trackpad (for those who want to experience all the frustration of using a laptop while sitting at their desktop). While there was no hyped-up event this morning to announce the news, none of it came as a particularly big surprise; the aforementioned products...

White iPhone 4 Delayed Again, 'Horrendous' vBulletin Flaws Could Expose Thousands

Highlights from this morning's other big tech headlines.... The white iPhone 4 manufacturing problems have apparently forced Apple to delay the model's release to sometime "later this year."

Man Loses House to Fire, Reads About It on Salvaged, Melted iMac

Apple has received so much attention and criticism over explosive and incendiary gadgets that it's definitely time for a fiery reversal of fortune. After being plagued for years by volatile iPods and iPhones, the company has again made the news -- this time with an incinerated iMac. But, in this particular situation, the gadget wasn't actually the source of the flames. After an inferno...

What's the Best iMac for Basic Creative Tasks?

Question: I'm finally ready to move to Mac, especially with Apple's latest iMacs. I really like the design and simplicity. But which one should I get? I was thinking I should get the base model for $1199, but the big 27-incher is pretty tempting, too, even though it's another $500. Or should I spend the extra money and get the upgraded versions of the iMac? So confusing -- I thought Apple was...

Apple Revamps Desktops, Laptops, and Adds Multi-touch 'Magic Mouse'

It seems like only yesterday that Apple was making headlines with its updated iPod line, but here it is again, making sure the new Macs are fresh for the rest of 2009 -- and the holiday season. The iMac, the MacBook, the oft-forgotten Mac Mini, and the much maligned Mighty Mouse (now known as the 'Magic Mouse') all got a revamp (some more significant than others) and landed in the Apple Store...

Apple Upgrades iMac, mini, Pro, and AirPort

We'd heard rumblings about computer upgrades from everyone's favorite Cupertino-based company, but we didn't expect anything this soon. This morning, Apple announced new updates across its desktop computer and router lines. Although there aren't any significant aesthetic changes or redesigns to the models, the Mac Pro, Mac mini, and iMac all received spec upgrades (e.g. faster chips, improved...

iMac-Supply on the Decrease -- New Models Coming or Bad Economy?

Last week, the folks at Apple informed retailers that the company's iMacs will soon be in short supply, according to a report last Friday on Apple Insider. Judging in part from that projected drop in supply, Apple Insider's commentators have inferred that the world will soon see the next iMac line. But could it also just mean -- in this shopping-averse economy -- that demand for iMacs is down,...

The iMac Turns 10

It's hard to believe, but 10 years ago today (August 15, 1998), Apple released the machine that can easily be credited with saving the company: the iMac. Around the same time, Apple was well on its way to becoming a footnote in computing history. Its computers were over-priced, under-powered, and the then current version of Mac OS was a joke. Yet in 1998, with Steve Jobs back at the helm of the...

Mother's Day Gift Guide: iMac

There's no prettier or easier-to-use computer on Earth than the iMac, and Apple just launched the newest iteration, so it's the perfect time to buy one of these for a mom who's been asking about a new computer for monhts. The models range in size from 20 to 24 inches, and start at a decidedly affordable (though admittedly still high for Mother's Day) $1,200.They all include the speedy Intel...

The iMac Turns 10, But Are Its Days Numbered?

In early May of 1998, Apple launched a computer that was said to "deliver the things consumers care about most - the excitement of the Internet and the simplicity of the Mac." That computer was, of course, the iMac, a fruity-colored all-in-one machine that was advertised as being ridiculously easy to set up, use, and take online with (still a somewhat tricky process back in the late 90s). Now,...

Hands-On With the New Apple iMac (Unboxing, Benchmarking)

Look what arrived on our doorstep today! That's right -- the shiny, expensive new iMac that's now equipped with that funky custom and / or overclocked 3.06GHz CPU. Take a look at us wildly unboxing and handling the behemoth in the gallery on Engadget Classic, and get a load of its fairly impressive Xbench scores after the break. ...

Apple Slapped With Class Action Suit Over Misleading iMac Ads

Apple, no stranger to class action law suits at this point, is under the gun again. This time for misleading claims about the screens on its 20 inch model iMac PCs. Apple claims that its screens can display millions of colors -- 16,777,216 to be exact -- and while that is true of the 24-inch model and the previous generation 20- and 24-inch models, the recent update to the iMac line brought a...

Apple Soars to 14% of Computer Sales In February

While the rest of the economy (and the computer industry along with it) flounders, Apple is apparently making out like a bandit. According to industry analyst NPD, Apple's share of computer sales rose from 9 percent to 14 percent in the month of February, while increasing its share of market revenue from 16 percent to 25 percent. Notebook sales have been climbing in general, but Apple is growing...
