Forget iMacs, Get A LGV300 Instead

When we think of LG, we normally think TVs or cellphones, but LG has just launched it’s prize-winning V300 AIO (all in one) PC in Europe, the Middle East, Africa, and Asia. The computer was built for those who need a solid computer without taking too much space with a clunky desktop.

The LG V300-DE10K is the model name and is packed with the latest Intel Sandy Bridge Core i7 processor, and has AMD-powered graphics (a Radeon HD 6650M to be specific).

Apple Starts iMac HD Replacement Program

iMac is Apple’s popular line of of all-in-one computers. you have the central processing unit and the display in one package looking like a giant monitor.

Looks like Apple is facing some problems with the hardware of the iMacs shipped during 2011. It is not a big problem as hardware might face some sort of damage during manufacturing. It is suggested that the problem is with the 1TB primary hard disk of the device manufactured by Seagate. The exact cause of the problem is not disclosed.

Apple Releasing Mac OS X Lion On USB Drive

Apple has been planning on releasing Mac OS X Lion on a physical drive since May. And now it seems that the day is near. Apple is about to launch a USB Drive in August which would contain the new Mac OS X Lion for customers who want their Lion Operating System in a Physical Drive.

The proposed price of this USB Drive is about $69. This is almost the double price of what you would pay if you downloaded Lion from the Mac App Store.

OS X Lion Arrives Tomorrow- Here’s How To Upgrade

For those of you who have been patiently waiting for OS X Lion, wait no more, the operating system will be arrive tomorrow for Mac users nationwide. But before you go crazy and install the software, there are a few precautionary measures you should take to protect your data.

First thing you want to check is to see if your Mac model was made in the middle of 2006. This is because PowerPC and single core Intel processors were fueling the macs until this time period, and OS X Lion won’t run on either.

Apple Offering Refunds For Final Cut Pro X

Apple has recently launched the latest version of Final Cut Pro, dubbed Final Cut Pro X. Unfortunately, the new version doesn’t keep its users happy as there are many poor reviews of the new version.

The largest criticism received is that the “upgrade” isn’t much of an upgrade at all, offering little improvements over the previous version. Fortunately, Apple is listening to its customers and are now offering refunds to unhappy customers in an effort to keep Apple fanboys, loyal.

Hulu Gives In To Apple’s Demands

Hulu recently modified its login screen for its Hulu Plus platform for Apple’s iOS. If you don’t see much of a difference in the modification, you’re right. Hulu simply took off the URL that linked back to their site to non-users who may be interested in signing up for Hulu Plus.

In essence, Apple doesn’t want people linking back to other sites, and from my guess, buying or using another product or service. By doing this, Apple is able to keep users in their own little bubbles-especially Mac users who are not too savvy and aren’t comfortable using Google (it’s okay, not everyone is).

250 Features In OS X Lion, All For $30

Here’s the moment you’ve all been waiting for, the low-down on Apple’s new OS X Lion. For $30, you can grab the latest version of the Apple desktop and/or laptop software for your Apple machine.

OS X comes with over 250 new features and 3,000 new APIs. Apple claims that users will see iPad influence in ‘many places’. A cool new feature that OS X has is the ability to have any application run in full screen. An app called Mission Control allows you to easily see all your open apps to get a good idea of what you’re working with.

Intel Ivy Bridge CPU Due Next Year

We’ve all heard about Intel’s current Sandy Bridge processors that use a 32-nanometer process, but what about Ivy Bridge? The next-generation processor is set to launch in 2012 (not late 2011, as Intel had previously stated.) The new chip will utilize a 22-nanometer wafer and 3D tri-gate transistor technology, bringing a powerful and more efficient chip to the market.

For Mac fans all throughout the world, it is unlikely that you will see Ivy Bridge processors in mac products for *at least another year, so, Summer 2012. The processor itself is touted to be similar to the current Sandy Bridge platform, but, “on steroids.”

New Auto Inspired Super Desk

If you are looking for a new computer desk, but want to look for something a little more edgy than what target, staples, and most department stores have to offer, then you might want to take a look at the limited edition superdesk inspired by car maker Bugatti. This French company is the same one that produce the Veyron, a 1.4 million dollar street legal race car.

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.
