Apple announced Monday updates to their MacBook Pro line, introducing the company’s next generation MacBook Pro.
Apple senior vice president Phil Schiller introduced the next generation MacBook Pro, which comes with Retina Display, weighs 4.46 pounds and is 0.71 inches thick. Apple calls it the world’s highest-resolution notebook display, with a whopping 2880 x 1800 display. The next generation MacBook will ship with OS X Mountain Lion, an HDMI port, Thunderbolt and Intel Quad-core i7 processor.
“It’s a true breakthrough in engineering – there’s never been a notebook this thin, this light, this powerful for professional use. Don’t worry, I’ll tell you all about it in just a minute, I just want to enjoy this,” Schiller said. More

According to its prospectus, Charles Schwab’s popular YieldPlus bond fund was designed to offer “high current income with minimal changes in share price.” That didn’t turn out to be the case when the financial meltdown hit.

It certainly wouldn’t come as much of a surprise that Microsoft would finally bring Hotmail into the Metro fold, but until now we haven’t had much evidence that such a change was actually in the works. If a set of leaked screenshots obtained by WinFuture are any indication, however, it looks like the nearly sixteen-year-old email service could soon be getting one of its biggest redesigns to date.
I have long wanted to do a show on the great 1950′s sci-fi classic. Not the easiest of shows to put together, but I think it works and provides some food for thought as conservatives try to reign in the power of self-appointed elites.

Apple wants every screen in your home to be an Apple screen. The company will be taking a giant leap toward accomplishing its goal at this year’s WWDC.
In just a decade, Apple has become a dominant force in computers, tablets, and mobile. It has yet to make major inroads into the biggest screen of them all: the television.
Sure, there’s Apple TV, but it has been a “hobby” for the company. Last year, 2.8 million units of the device were sold, and 2.7 million units have been sold so far this year. Though that’s impressive, it’s a far cry from the company’s iPhone, iPad, Mac, and iPod sales.
