After being exposed as a closet geek by Ian this week I thought I might as well stop repressing the urge to blog about the various techno-stories that surface.
This Tuesday is a huge week in the Mac-world, with Apple confirming that â€˜the spotlight turns to notebooks' when they hold a press event at their campus in Cupertino. The announcement ends months of speculation regarding the exact date that new MacBooks and MacBook Pros were being unveiled, with Apple â€˜going green' in the latest update to their successful notebook franchise.
The plastic cases of the MacBooks are to be no more, with the technology giant deciding to replace them with the much more eco-friendly aluminium. This move was widely expected, especially after the move to aluminium iMacs last July.
I'm not going to pretend I'm not excited; I'll be the first person to buy one of these if I get the chance. I've long been awaiting the opportunity to fill the dark hole that my Powerbook G4 left when it broke on me back in 2004.
So if any lecturers are reading this and wondering why their lesson is rather quiet on Tuesday; I'm either in line at the nearest Apple store or trying to discreetly follow Steve Jobs' keynote speech at the back of the classroom.
Roll on Tuesday...
