Daily Grind: Caffeinated

Name: Vin (aka hyper-hypo)
How Vin feels today: Caffeinated @ 12:51:25 PM
What Vin really wants today: To remind self the next time I order a medium coffee at the local coffee shop that its quite large rather than medium. Enjoy unnecessary caffeine boost, attempt to post additional links to make up for yesterday.

Music Stuck in Head: Big Bang Baby / Stone Temple Pilots
Any song that mentions Orange Crush in the lyrics is OK in my book. And by book I really mean magazine. And by magazine I really mean pamphlet. And by pamphlet I mean - whatever, the list is short.

Stuff to do today:

  • Go to Apple Cube over on Fifth Ave
  • Remark that overall feeling and general consensus of the iPad was... underwhelming
  • ...its kinda heavy for everyday use - especially as an e-reader
  • ...typing on the device is not exactly a joy either
  • Interface was pretty neat but if you have an iPhone you've been there
  • On the other hand, that newly updated MacBook Pro is quite awesome
  • ...and freakin' fast (even the base Intel i5 model screams)
  • Save money for next major purchase

Apple finally pulls the curtain back on Macbook Pro notebook refresh.Apple finally pulls the curtain back on Macbook Pro notebook refresh.

Said notebook refresh brings the 15-inch and 17-inch MacBook Pros over to speedier Intel i5 and i7 chips. According to some early benchmarks these machines are about 50% faster than the previous generation. Sadly, the 13-inch model is still stuck in Core 2 Duo land.

New Apple products might be arriving tomorrow according to Best Buy inventory systems.New Apple products might be arriving tomorrow according to Best Buy inventory systems.

Dear Apple, please release an updated version of the MacBook Pro so I can eagerly give you my hard-earned cash to replace my aging plastic (cracking along the edges I might add) regular MacBook.

New line of plastic MacBooks may be right around the corner along with new iMacs.New line of plastic MacBooks may be right around the corner along with new iMacs.

The refreshed iMacs may include a new touch-capable mouse to emulate functionality that iPhones can already do. My hunch is that it will be a USB touch pad. Pinching and swiping with an actual mouse doesn't quite work.
