Intel + Apple, A Match Made In Heaven

Intel’s Senior Vice President, Tom Kilroy has recently revealed that Intel and Apple are working closely together on Apple’s future products. Kilroy is state that Apple helps shape Intel’s roadmap. This makes sense to me because unlike PC manufacturers that have an option of choosing Intel, AMD, or ARM, Apple has been using Intel processors for years and years.

The duo have quite a solid history together and it would make sense for them to team up to take on the world, especially when Intel knows that Apple won’t flock over to AMD or ARM for business.

Opinion: Chromebooks Will Fail

According to a posting from Macworld, Chrome notebooks are due to fail. Before you think, ugh, this is a posting from MacWorld, it was originally written by Tony Bradley from PCWorld.

OS X Lion Has iOS Feel, Go Figure!

While we don’t have a ton of information on the new Apple operating system, we do know a few things. Mac OS X Lion has some new features in its developer version, including a redesigned login screen, a detailed Reading List feature in Safari, a few new wallpapers, and a couple other performance tweaks.

Dell XPS 15z- Leaked!!!

Dell is working on a new laptop called the XPS 15z. While the laptop kind of resembles a MacBook, at the same time, it really doesn’t (though probably best to avoid an Apple lawsuit). From the leaked photos we can see that the keyboard has large, rounded white keys that should make typing easier for those of us with larger fingers. The screen is a large 15.6″ screen and the speaker grills are located on each neighboring side of the keyboard.

Google Works On Addiction To Adobe Flash

Google announced yesterday that it has added Flash support to its Instant Previews feature even though it is cautioned against using Adobe’s plugin too heavily. With support for Flash, users will be able to use a regular web browser to see a Flash-heavy, website’s animations, layout, and videos in the quick view sidebar instead of having plugin errors. The method would implement whenever a website’s details were scraped by Google’s bots but would also be turned off when the preview had to be generated on-demand.

OS X Lion Features “Find My Mac”

While the Apple Worldwide Developer Conference is only a month away, we are learning more about what might constitute the new OS X Lion. According to 9to5Mac, the new OS will feature a “Find my Mac” tool that works very similar to the “Find my iPhone”, exclusively for MobileMe. There will also be Find My Mac messenger, and we have no idea what this could be.

Some speculate that it is a way for Mac’s Finder to instant message the Mac owner, but we’re not too sure how it works or how effective the applicaiton will be.
