Good morning, and many salutations! A few exciting things happening around these parts. First, the Kansas State Wildcats are making their first Sweet 16 appearance since 1988. Huzzah. Things are a little bitter around here since iResQ is fully stocked with KU and Mizzou fans. More importantly- iResQ is now offering 1TB hard drive upgrades for the aluminum UniBody MacBook and UniBody MacBook Pro. If you’ve been syphoning off your movies and music to external drives or burning all your documents to DVDs, worry no longer. Now you can have your space and eat it to, so to speak. Check it out:
Dang, that’s a lot of space. And if you’re running Snow Leopard, it will actually read as 1000GB, unlike previous operating systems that assumed 1MB = 1024KB. Remember when it was unfathomable that anyone would use a whole gigabyte of storage? When I was nine my dad brought our first PC home and I was astounded at the 40MB of memory and the 133MHz processor. And with that processing force I played Pong and Number Munchers for hours. Wow.
Still anxiously awaiting the delivery of your iPad? Try this to pass the time- whenever you send an email to a friend or coworker, sign it “Sent from my iPad.” I’ve had a few of my friends start raving jealously, which is always fun. Patience, Apple fans. It’s almost here.

Bzzzzzzzzzzzzz. What’s that? Bzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzz. What’s that buzzing? Could it be? Yes, it’s the Apple rumor mills. I know, I know. Really lame. Sorry. But as we’re drawing closer to the September event in San Francisco, software and hardware rumors, predictions, and wild stabbing guesses are flying about the Apple universe, and I can’t help but buy in a little. So what are the internets saying? Most of you have probably seen the “leaked” images of the Snow Leopard packaging, but if you haven’t, you take a look and decide if it’s real or fake. Only two bits a gander:
So what else is Steve or the to-be-named replacement going to share with us? Well, apparently a fair amount about iPods and iTunes. It’s about time for the iPod Classic to get a makeover and the iPod Touch has a lot of firmware update potential in the wake of the last iPhone 3G and 3Gs improvements. We’ll see. I haven’t heard anything about new Portables, but it’s been sounding like the iMac is going to look more like the Cinema Display, which already looks more like the Unibody MacBook and MacBook Pro. Sleeker, more compact, overall awesomer.
And yes, of course, the Apple Tablet. As is tradition, Apple is tight-lipped about development, and it looks like we’ll have to wait another three months before a formal announcement. But hopefully we’ll get some answers about Snow Leopard’s “fine tuned”-ness. Get excited friends, and check back with the blogs for August’s coupon. Chumbawamba.
