Some interesting updates from Apple today. Mountain Lion is looking good overall, but what’s most notable is that it will only be a $20 upgrade — starting from Snow Leopard on.
iOS 6 was previewed and Macworld has a nice rundown on that here. I don’t think this is an update that makes me say “wow” as much as it makes me say “nice”. iOS adds some features that seem to polish off the OS very nicely. The only one that really excites me is the new Maps — can’t wait to give that a go.1
The MacBook Airs and MacBook Pros were updated, but the big news is the new Retina MacBook Pro (Macworld link). I really didn’t think we would see a retina Mac before Apple went all SSD, but I was wrong. I ordered one of these and will write up a review when I get done putting it through the paces. I only ordered it over an Air because I wanted that screen — otherwise I still think the Air’s are a better choice for most.2
That’s all from me, for now.
I’ll wait for the second beta at least. ↩
Also I am very excited at how fast editing audio and photos will be now. ↩
