Retina 5K iMacs (MF886LL) & new Minis (MGEM2LL) hit US retail: Amazon, Best Buy, more

From 9to5Toys.com:

retina-5K-imac-sale-discount

We reported last week that Apple’s new lust-worthy 5K Retina 27-inch iMac was up for sale at MacMall with a small discount and tax advantages in most states. Over the weekend, many more retailers began offering the new product. Among the biggest:

We’ve noted that it is often a best bet to order the base mode of RAM and then upgrade to 32GB using Crucial RAM at Amazon ($273 for 32GB)

Apple’s new $499 Mac Minis are also now available at Best Buy, Amazon and B&H (but aren’t RAM upgradable).

At the moment, MacMall appears to be a best bet when buying either (and they are already shipping), but numbers fluctuate. Keep an eye on 9to5mac.com/products for the latest best prices on Apple products or 9to5toys for the best prices on accesories. .

Beats’ latest ad is LeBron James’ homage to Akron and $200 PowerBeats2 earbuds

I’m from Akron so I guess this should hit home for me. But the marriage between Apple and Beats still feels strange and this is clearly the Beats creative doing what they do best.

PowerBeats2, which are a $50 upgrade from Monster-produced PowerBeats originals get a charitable 3/5 stars on Apple’s Store and 3.7 stars at Amazon where they are $199.99.

Apple Campus 2 Drone video update

It appears that most of the foundation is laid now in an update from a video taken by a drone two weeks ago.

Apple CEO Tim Cook has called Apple’s Campus 2 the ‘Greenest in the World’. The controversial structure which will house 12,000 staff in 2.8M square feet on 176 acres and is estimated to be completed in 2016. Interestingly, even though Apple is covering the construction site with a high green wall, it is updating the 3D flyover of the location in Apple Maps somewhat frequently. The latest looks like it was taken earlier this summer.

You can follow the progress in our Campus 2 story line here. We’re going to try to get a new video every few weeks so stay tuned.

Dropbox’s Mailbox iOS app updated w/ customizable swipes & iPhone 6 UI as Mac app enters open beta

9to5-image 2014-10-13 at 2.11.02 PM

Dropbox updated its Mailbox app today with some necessary features and fixes. The update now includes the ability to customize your swipes. Also, new iPhone 6 and 6 Plus owners will appreciate the optimized UI for bigger displays. Finally, Dropbox has squashed some bugs in Push and otherwise improved the overall performance.

Dropbox’s Mailbox is still only currently for Gmail and iCloud accounts, but the company reminds us again that other email platforms are on the way.

In addition to the updated iPhone and iPad version, the beta version for the Mac is now open to anyone following a public beta coin system for testers before.

https://twitter.com/Mailbox/status/521737188154019841/

Mailbox [Free, App Store] is described as “a completely redesigned inbox that makes email light, fast, and mobile-friendly. Quickly swipe messages to your archive or trash. Scan an entire conversation at once with chat-like organization. Snooze emails until later with the tap of a button — they’ll return to your inbox automatically so you can focus on what’s important now.  Mailbox checks your email from the cloud and delivers it to your phone securely. Now with Auto-swipe, Mailbox learns from your swipes and snoozes to automate common actions. Mute that conversation you don’t care about, snooze messages from your friend to this evening, or route all of your receipts to a list — automatically. Mailbox’s delightful UI and smart features make getting to zero — and staying there — a breeze. After you experience a clean inbox, you’ll wonder how you ever lived without it.”

Steve Jobs Biographer Walter Isaacson is back with Digital Revolution backstory called ‘The Innovators’

I listened to an NPR interview with Walter Isaacson yesterday where he excerpted some fascinating tales from his latest book called The Innovators which goes on sale today

Following his blockbuster biography of Steve Jobs, The Innovators is Walter Isaacson’s revealing story of the people who created the computer and the Internet. It is destined to be the standard history of the digital revolution and an indispensable guide to how innovation really happens. What were the talents that allowed certain inventors and entrepreneurs to turn their visionary ideas into disruptive realities? What led to their creative leaps? Why did some succeed and others fail? In his masterly saga, Isaacson begins with Ada Lovelace, Lord Byron’s daughter, who pioneered computer programming in the 1840s. He explores the fascinating personalities that created our current digital revolution, such as Vannevar Bush, Alan Turing, John von Neumann, J.C.R. Licklider, Doug Engelbart, Robert Noyce, Bill Gates, Steve Wozniak, Steve Jobs, Tim Berners-Lee, and Larry Page. This is the story of how their minds worked and what made them so inventive. It’s also a narrative of how their ability to collaborate and master the art of teamwork made them even more creative. For an era that seeks to foster innovation, creativity, and teamwork, The Innovators shows how they happen.

(iBooks: $8.99Amazon free preview, Kindle edition $8.49 , Hardcover $21.81, Free audiobook with Audible Trial or $27)

If you enjoyed Steve Jobs, this seems a great way to put perspective on his work at Apple and how it fit into the Digital Revolution.

According to Apple, people have all but stopped upgrading to iOS 8

App-store-ios-8-marketshare

Apple’s iOS share numbers as tabulated by App Store visits are out for the first week of October and they are a “head scratcher”. iOS 8 gained only 1 point from 46% to 47%  since September 21st which should have well exceeded 1% gain by the millions of new iPhone 6/Plus shipments alone – even if not one person had updated their iPhone 5/s/c. Even more confusing is that the “Earlier” category of iOS 6 and before devices actually grew in percentage from 5% to 6% over the previous two week period.

It is possible some people downgraded to iOS 7 (which was an option until just after 8.0.2 was released) while others have stayed put on their current iOS version because of a succession of errors in rolling out iOS 8. Combined with the large amount of space required to do an over the air update, it appears that iOS users have all but stopped upgrading iOS –a marked departure from years past.

Majority of Apple Campus 2 foundation laid according to latest drone video

Apple-campus-2-drone-video

Apple’s Campus 2 project continues to make strides with the latest drone video (below) showing the majority of the foundation completed on the massive structure, which Apple CEO Tim Cook has called the ‘Greenest in the World’.  You can see the front 2/3rds of the structure is now cemented in with the rear third still dirt and subterranean walls also built along the sides.

The controversial structure which will house 12,000 staff in 2.8M square feet on 176 acres and is estimated to be completed in 2016. Interestingly, even though Apple is covering the construction site with a high green wall, it is updating the 3D flyover of the location in Apple Maps somewhat frequently. The latest looks like it was taken earlier this summer.

You can follow the progress in our Campus 2 story line here.

Thanks Tony!
