Featured Story: Apple March Announcements

Apple MacBook

  • See the specs here at
  • USB-C will rule them all
  • or will it? USB security risk
  • Apple says screw all your old accessories! Buy all new ones! and they’re expensive!
  • NO SD slot. What’s up with that?
  • taptic engine for touchpad sounds interesting but will everyone like the feedback?
  • 8GB RAM max
  • probably lots of fans already…but none inside this macbook




AppleWatchApple Watch

  • The Sport. The Middle One. And the one that you can’t afford.
  • Mike doesn’t want one. But he’s probably gonna get one. Just because. Just not the one that’s $10,000.
  • Save your money and get a Pebble? $100, e-ink, 7 days on a charge


Apple TV

  • No new hardware announced. Price dropped
  • ok, HBO Now ($15/mo), no Satellite or Cable subscription needed.
  • Apple working with other network providers to bundle content packages. Rumors suggest June announcement at WWDC, with a September launch. Maybe new hardware then?
