A lot happened during today’s WWDC keynote (including this thing), but the best part was the moment the company finally pulled out the new scented candle wine bottle stand Mac Pro. Let’s face it; if you’re going to not update a product’s exterior for a full decade, you better come back strong if you’re going to redesign it. And that’s exactly what Apple appears to have done. Screw doing the responsible thing. I’m going to buy one of these things instead of a house.

This is supposedly what iOS7 looks like, according to 9to5Mac. Note: This was created by someone who mocked up the design based on something they saw, which is why it looks like something a 10-year-old designed. By the way, WWDC is today and E3 is this week.

New MacBook Pro: Not many ports. .71 inches thin. 13 and 15 inch models. 2880x1800 resolution. “Thin as Air.” Mind blowing. (More here.)

Three best Apple WWDC rumors: New laptops, new Macs, Apple TV?
Hey, Apple: We want a new laptop. Our old one is starting to show its age. Between the gradual slowness, evolving needs and (admittedly) three and a half years of aggressive usage in coffee shops, on Amtrak rides, on MegaBus trips, and (really) anywhere with an open wi-fi connection, we’re ready. Three batteries, one RAM upgrade, one big dent to its unibody exterior and two power supplies later, we could see ourselves upgrading in a week or two. We imagine we’re not alone here — a lot of people are probably waiting for some crazy announcement at Monday’s WWDC. With that in mind, it seems that now’s a good time to recap what rumors are cropping up at the moment:
laptops Is the 17-inch Macbook Pro going the way of the dodo? It’s possible: Early reports suggest Apple will upgrade its Macbook Pro line and add a second retina-display-based line between it and the Macbook Air line, but leave the 17-incher, which accounts for only 1 percent of Apple’s laptop sales, in line for discontinuation in 2013.
desktops Also on the list for likely upgrades? Apple’s Mac Pro line, which hasn’t been touched since 2010. The current line of rumors suggests new models will be "rackable" and "stackable," so they can be used easily in a server farm like the old Xserve line once could. The iMacs or Mac Minis could also possibly see an upgrade, too.
tv Of course, the biggest possible surprise? A new television set. Days ago, Apple CEO Tim Cook hinted that the company saw television in its future — and not just in Apple TV form. At the very least, expect the company to announce an app SDK, something that its closest competitor, Roku, already has had for a while. Hmm.
» What could developers see? With WWDC being a developer’s conference first, the software details offered to developers are also expected to be robust, with some suggestions that iCloud might open up for developers who wish to run apps on the platform, more details on Mountain Lion and a more details on iOS 6, which is rumored to include an upgraded map app. But you know what, considering that everything here is just a rumor, it’s entirely possible that Tim Cook could go out there and say, “You know what? We just rested on our laurels this year. We’re switching to Android.” Which, honestly, would be the biggest news of the day.

Human just like the rest of us.

One of the more intimate shots of Steve we’ve seen. Going up there in his condition has to be tough.

The five coolest things about Apple’s OSX Lion

Lion will only be available in the App store, meaning you can’t install it with a disc. That also means that it’s easy to upgrade and update. Much like Snow Leopard, it’s only going to be $29.99. Unlike Snow Leopard, it’ll only take up 4 gb of hard drive space. Not bad. Some of our favorite new features: 

  • » Mission Control lets you see all the apps and other things your working on easily on your screen. It lets you preview apps and programs before you actually select them, and lets you easily select new Spaces.
  • » The Mac App Store already allows you to buy software easily from the Internet — and, in a big step, the OS too. The only place you can buy Lion is on the Mac App Store.
  • » Resume allows you to easily revert your document to how it was when you opened it, rename it, duplicate it, and even see past revisions and copy-paste from them into your new one. It’s basically like a version of Google Docs on your desktop, but better. It’ll keep you from having multiple copies of the same document on your computer.
  • » Airdrop will replace your USB flash drives — it’s peer to peer sharing, but with documents. Again, seems like Google Docs, but built in to the computer. Airdrop will show you everyone who is using it, all that you have to do is drag-drop the document in question on another nearby user and it’s shared.
  • » Mail will be searchable, and it will show emails as conversations, just like Gmail if you’re familiar with it. Searching your email is extremely easy - you can search by sender, date, or subject, or all three in one search box. source
