MacBook Air Patched

Apple’s paper-thin notebook machine has received a fairly major software update, reports The Unofficial Apple Weblog. Accessed via the usual updating system within OS X, the patch addresses issues with video playback as well as – primarily – issues with heat. The CPU cores in the MacBook apparently don’t idle as they should out of the box – resulting in the slimline unit running very hot with extended use. If you’re an Air user rushing out to install this, the update comes with a word of warning: if you’ve installed a third-party workaround like CoolBook, uninstall it before running the update.

N79, N85 Confirmed

TechRadar reports that the N79 and N85 handsets first captured in spy shots in June have finally become official. To the left (shown bearing the N00 markings as in the original leaked photos) is the new slider design, the N85. The phone appears to be a baby brother to the new flagship handset, the N96, with a 2.6″ OLED screen, GPS, FM radio and 5 megapixel camera with Carl Zeiss lens. The N85 will be delivered with a free 8GB memory card. Over on the right is the new “candybar” phone, the N79. Bundled with a 4GB memory card, the N79 packs in all the same features as the N85, and sees the return of the old Xpress-On replaceable covers that owners of the old 3210 handsets will not-so-fondly remember. Contract-free prices are reported to be €350 for the N79 and €450 for the N85. No word yet on when these will hit the UK networks.

Une nuit à Paris, partie une (One night in Paris, Part one)

Well, when MightyGadget got the opportunity to visit Paris on an all expenses paid trip to have a ganders at the latest Toshiba gear the answer was already set in stone (that would be a resounding yes if you hadn’t already got it). Take a closer look was the objective and that is exactly what we had the chance to do. The newest, smallest, lightest, fanciest pieces of kit in Toshiba’s arsenal were presented to us with the purpose of letting you know just how fantastic the future is looking for you lucky laptop using public. Now, not only were we asked to make our opinions and discuss the future with some of the top bods but we were also granted the opportunity to mingle with some of the top journo’s in Europe, all eager to get their grubby little mitts on the kit aswell. The main focus of the jaunt across the channel wasn’t to tell us what components were being used or how cheap the laptops were but more to delve further into the world of Toshiba and what really made their developers and designers tick. The whole ethos of Take a closer look is the idea that we are entering a new age of style. We have had laptops in our homes and businesses for many years now and the general aesthetics haven’t really been altered...

Style is the future… Apparently

I’m here at the Toshiba seminar entitled ‘Take a closer look’. When I return I will be giving you lucky people an insight into the latest technical goodies that they have on offer. I have to admit that there are some delightful little gems on offer and have some photos to prove it. It’s a hard life being jetted to Paris, put up in a swanky hotel and let loose with some toys. It’s a sacrifice I was prepared to take.
