Dennis Sellers at AppleWorld.Today offers an intriguimg proposition.
We hear rumors about upcoming iPhones with foldable screen. But what about Macs with bendable displays. Imagine a MacBook Pro with a screen that measured 13-inches when you’re, for example, on an airplane. Get to your hotel room, however, and you can unfold it to 17 inches or bigger.
Author Sellers makes a good case.
John Martellaro and Charlotte Henry join host Kelly Guimont to talk about port differentials on MacBook models and Apple’s macOS bug bounty.
Apple puts four USB-C Ports on a MacBook Pro to make us believe that it’s a “pro” machine. The trouble is, we all do the same things with ports on a MacBook Air which only has two ports. This crippling is all very callous and manipulative by Apple.
Navigating in a car with AR and maps on an iPhone, even on the upper dashboard, is not the right way to go. John has a much better idea.
Evidence is mounting that the ill-fated Butterfly mechanism keyboard that Apple has been using in its notebook computers ever since the MacBook debuted in 2015 will eventually become history. AppleInsider has the goods:
Apple analyst Ming-Chi Kuo suspects that the [rumored] 16-inch MacBook Pro will be the first Apple laptop to shift [back] to a scissor mechanism …
Furthermore, Kuo is predicting that the entire MacBook Air and MacBook Pro lines will migrate in 2020 to the technology.
Some think this is evidence of the subtle hand of Apple’s COO Jeff Williams.
Andrew Orr and Dave Hamilton join host Kelly Guimont to talk about the new Mac laptop updates and the latest security flaw courtesy of Zoom.
The 2019 Back to School sales are starting with Apple. The MacBook Air price has been lowered to US$1,099 and updated with True Tone.
It’s irritating when the keyboard on a MacBook of some kind fails. But are the complaints out of proportion? John weighs in.
Mujjo released a very smart leather-folio case for the new 13″ MacBook Air and MacBook Pro on Wednesday. It has a single-leather panel on the outside and zips that go around three sides to make accessing the interior easier. The inside is felt-lined and contains a variety of compartments, including some for bank cards. The case is treated to be water-repellant. The Mujjo folio sleeve comes in black and is available online for €119.90 ($134.38) with free worldwide shipping.
Yesterday Costo started selling Macs on its website, and you can pick up a Costco Mac and get a US$50 to US$200 discount.
Bryan Chaffin and guest-host Jim Dalrymple talk about how they use their iPads, and it turns out they’re pretty different use cases. They try to talk about where Apple TV might go but venture into a much deeper conversation about Apple’s original TV shows and videos. Spoiler: one of them is a pessimist. They close the show by examining the state of the Mac. Another spoiler: one of them is a pessimist!
Companies are like organisms: they’re born, they grow, adapt, and have a life cycle. But predicting Apple’s future is very hard to do at this point. We can, however, monitor life signs.
Bryan Chaffin is joined by guest-host John Kheit, who has a bee in his bonnet about Apple’s upgrade pricing for RAM and storage on the new Mac mini and MacBook Air models. They also discuss whether or not Apple actually has a “deep pipeline,” as well features they’d like to see come to iOS in the future.
LONDON – The new iPad Pro and MacBook Air are available for UK customers. Currys PC World is offering new iPads from £769 (US$1,011).

A new, low-cost, non-Retina MacBook of some kind has been envisioned and dreamed about by the community. Whatever Apple’s plans are, the new 2018 MacBook Air isn’t it. And that’s okay.
Apple’s T2 security chip has been added to the new MacBook Air. It’s also in newer MacBook Pro models. And it can prevent eavesdropping.
