Hardcore truck people probably don’t think of the 2017 Honda Ridgeline as a “real truck,” but I just towed a classic Ford Mustang over the Appalachians with one. So why aren’t there more trucks in the U.S. built on a unibody platform like the Ridgeline? I talked to engineers at Honda and Toyota to find out, and now…
Nokia took a striking piece of unibody hardware, coupled it with a 3.9-inch curved glass touchscreen display, removed all the buttons, and topped it with an 8-megapixel Carl Zeiss camera and NFC. Incredible. It's called the N9. But!
When Apple quietly introduced the Unibody Mac Mini, many people wondered if it was the perfect HTPC. Considering that it packs a HDMI-port (a first for Apple) and is housed in a sleek design, it just may be.
You think that your MacBook embodies the essence of simplicity because of it was painstakingly machined from a single slab of aluminum? Well, the Brick Lamp by HC Wang is pretty much just that slab of aluminum.
As far as hardware goes, the size, the look, and the configuration of the apparent unibody-ish backside of the tablet all make sense. The original photos were yanked almost immediately—very interesting—but not before we saved them.
Apparently, several Apple users are reporting in forums that the screen in the unibody MacBooks has been quietly upgraded to MacBook Air standards, offering noticeably better quality than older units. It all started last April.
Last February a Turkish Airways jet crashed in Amsterdam killing nine people and injuring 121 others. Passenger Sefer Baris and his MacBook Air survived the crash—but both were a little worse for wear.
Last October, Apple started using unibody designs in their MacBook and MacBook Pro. A newly uncovered patent suggests that the next product to incorporate this aluminum case may be the iPod.
This weekend, I learned the hard way that trying to jailbreak an iPhone 3G using a MacBook running 10.5.6 can totally freeze up the machine later on. Here are the specifics: UPDATED
Despite all the fanfare about the new, upgraded unibody MacBooks, the old (polybody?) MacBooks are still on sale for $999. Thankfully, Apple has updated the base specs on our sad, white friend.
When I pulled my MacBook Pro out for its first field run at CES, one limitation I hadn't previously anticipated arose. It's something you should consider if you're using anything larger than standard USB plugs.
Aside from the actual speculated products, the big news surrounding the Apple Macworld keynote was that Steve Jobs would be out sick. But as I refreshed the Gizmodo liveblog, I wondered, did it matter?
We just confirmed with Apple that swapping out the 17" MacBook Pro's non-removable battery will cost $179. Fortunately, says Apple, the swap might not be needed for a long time:
If Wired, TUAW and Macrumors are independently reporting a Mac Mini is on its way, we know it exists. Evidently, we're just not going to see it at Macworld. So what about other rumors?
Today iPhone users can download music from iTunes not just through their computers or Wi-Fi, but AT&T's 3G network. So how does it work? Testing it in Vegas, we can say rocky but functional.
Finally providing a noticeable difference between the MacBook and MacBook Pro, Apple has pushed the Pro's screen to 17 inches, its price to $2799, and thrown in a high-capacity (non-replaceable!) battery.
