Apple Lets You Take A Peek At How The New Mac Pro Is Being Built

Want to take a peek at how new Mac Pro is being built?  Apple is boasting that they have radically engineered their new Mac Pro to be unlike any other they have had ever engineered before.  Under the hood, it got really powerful components.  Basically, cutting edge components such as Intel Xeon E5 Quad Core or 6-Core.  Obviously, the list of the most cutting edge components yet in this new bad boy is pretty long.  You can just take a quick jump over to Apple’s official website and read the spec sheet for yourself, and please don’t drool all over yourself.  What about the aesthetic of the beast?  Some people think it looks like a cute trashcan.  I don’t know, because I haven’t seen one in real life and so I decide to keep my opinion on this closer to my chest at this point in time.  Anyhow, without Steve Jobs’ unique presence and passion, I wonder how well will Apple be able to stay focus on innovating and supporting their products with Steve Jobs-like passion?  If they’re continually developing their products with Steve Jobs-like passion and not worrying about their shareholders’ demands, then I think I will definitely want to repeatedly, shamelessly take a delicious bite off an apple in my nightly dream.  Check out the video right after the break which showcases how far Apple has had gone in making the new Mac Pro.  To the extreme yo, and the launch date of this new Mac Pro is in this December! :P~

Airplay Made Apple TV

In case you don’t know, the latest Apple TV’s Airplay feature doesn’t work with some Apple devices.  Correct me if I’m completely wrong, I think MacBook Pro and Air laptops that debuted before 2011 cannot use Airplay.  Can’t talk about Mac Pro, because I don’t have one.  Furthermore, Airplay isn’t compatible with iPad 1 and iPhone versions that came out before iPhone 4.  Specifically, I had said Airplay would not be compatible with MacBook Pro and Air that debuted before 2011, but I’ve found out that Airplay can be used with iTunes regardless how Airplay isn’t compatible with Mac laptops that came out before 2011.  There is a catch though, Airplay can only work with iTunes on older Mac laptops if you’re running the latest Mac OS X Mountain Lion operating system.

I had to scratch my head when I played around with Apple TV, because I couldn’t fathom Apple’s refusal in making Airplay to work with older MacBook whatever (i.e., the ones that came out before 2011).  With older MacBook whatever, it would be that you lied if you told me about how you could find the Airplay icon on the menu bar.  Anyhow, my curiosity caught fire when I had iTunes on mid 2010 MacBook Pro used Airplay to stream videos onto Apple TV.  So, I was rather frustrated to see that Apple allowed iTunes on older hardware to use Airplay as long the older hardware could run the latest Mac OS X Mountain Lion operating system and yet refused to let anything else to work with Airplay.

Luckily, I got iPad 2, and it worked just fine with Airplay.  So, if you have iPad 1, you would be out of luck!  As I explored Apple TV a little more, I found out that iPhone 4 would work with Airplay just fine too.  I concluded that Airplay made Apple TV.  Sure, Apple TV did have other features such as Home Sharing, but these other features could be found on any Mac.  Home Sharing required iTunes to stream from Mac to Apple TV, and so Apple users would be limited to iTunes content only.  Airplay changed the game as users could just either mirroring or stream 1080p resolution videos from Apple devices to Apple TV, consequently pretty pictures would fly on whatever big screen TV.

To tell the truth, if your big screen TV can be just as smart as a computer, you probably have no need for Apple TV unless you’ve really wanted to stream some videos from iPad 2 or so.  For me personally, Apple TV has saved my dumb TV as it got no brainiac features as other smart big screen TVs.  Nonetheless, I don’t care how smart my TV can get if I can’t use Airplay, therefore I have to say Airplay is the only feature I like most on Apple TV.  Oh, I forgot to tell you that you can definitely play video games on a dumb big screen TV through Apple TV’s Airplay.  Cool?
