MacBook Airs are just around the cornerMultiple sources and dried up inventory levels are pointing to new Airs in July, the fireworks between Apple and Final Cut Users get hotter, and nothing can save a relationship like the "Girlfriend" App.
-What's up? I'm Brian Tong here and welcome to the Apple Byte for all the good and bad inside the world of Apple. Let's get to the show and we start things off with product news from 9 to 5 Mac that claimed that new MacBook Airs will coming in mid July. That's only couple of weeks from now and you would think we would get a specific date when is this closed, but were expecting Sandy Bridge finally making its way into the ultra slims and no major design change plus the laptops are expected to come preloaded with Mac OS X line, and you know they are coming soon when Best Buy has made all 4 current models not available for shipping. You know, that's always a good way to off the general public. Apple insider also reports that white polycarbonate MacBook and resellers like Amazon, MacConnection, J&R are completely sold out. One of Europe's largest distributors is sold as well. So, we could see revamp with the new MacBook, but as usual, none of these has been officially confirmed. Now customer complaints and dissatisfaction, what we more accurately describe is rage with the latest release of Final Cut Pro X prompted a Apple to post a Final Cut Pro FAQ; that stands for frequently asked questions, FYI. Now, on the article, Apple says some of the missing features from Final Cut Pro will return with future software updates like support for more cameras, multi cam editing, XML export, and others. Now, Final Cut Pro 7 projects are still unable to be fully compatible with FCPX and that update it's coming some time later this summer, but don't worry, if you're still not happy, Apple's Mac App store appears to be giving refunds to Final Cut Pro X customers who are unhappy breaking their all sales or final policy. Now, according to next web, users are reporting the refunds on Apple support discussion trends. The community is really hammering Apple, and I'm sure we can expect more fireworks between the two, which perfect timing since, you know, July 4th is here. We sometimes get a little carried away. Alright, let's check out a couple of e-mails with the Apple Byte on nation's thoughts on the potential new Apple television we talked about last week. Steve [unk] writes in with "I think that Apple TV would be great to purchase, but for me, it mostly depends on what it has to offer. I would say that if Apple TV was more Apple compatible as when you are able to not just watch music, etc., but to also transfer them from your iPod, iPhone, and iPad to see and watch the files on a TV, then it would be worth purchasing." Alright, thanks Steve, but Tom [unk] disagrees and says, the Apple TV would be the most overpriced TV with not too many features just like all their Apple products. Tom, I think you need a hug here. Here, I hug you right now. Okay, are you alright? Okay, see, now you should feel little better. Alright guys, iPhone 5 rumors continue to spring eternal. The latest news last week was that Apple was releasing not one, but 2 iPhones. One being the 4s and one being the 4. Sure dude, you might wanna stop smoking that wacky tobacky. Then we had another analyst or guys who read all the same text blogs that we do that countered a claim saying there will be no iPhone 5 until 2012. More claims say the current iPhone 3GS will then end up being free with the contract once the iPhone 5 comes to markets. So, we'll see how that all plays out. Alright, a few quick bytes, the Apple app store hit a milestone with over 100,000 iPad specific apps. Congratulations to you even though you're not a real person and you're looking for a video conferencing with more than one person, forget Face Time for now, Fring has added the capability with and update to their App for the iPad 2. So, what's better than the 3-way, 4-way video conferencing and happy anniversary goes out to the iPhone June 29 marched its 4-year milestone and it was the day that changed my life forever when I started carrying more about a metal vibrating object that also serves as heater for those cold lonely nights. Now, before I get to the press, let's wrap things up with our iPhone app of the week. Now, I've been learning a lot from these iPhone apps, and this week's app is called girlfriend. Did you guys know a girl likes surprises? I had no idea, so all you have to do is type a message in the app. It fades to black, and then with the slightest movement of your phone, a message with a rain of animated hearts can save the day. Now, here, if you don't believe me, I'll show you what I'm talking about. Look at boys, boom! Goes the dynamite, aces on you, smell down money. Smell, these are all mine. -Wow, Brian, it seems like you been in a good mood lately. -Yeah, you've been cloud 9 lately, what's with you? -Things are going my way. Remember those iPone apps. -iPhone apps. -Yup. Dave help me meet a girl. I'm actually seeing someone right now. -You are seeing somebody? -A girl? -A girl. -Yes. -Hey baby. Yeah. -What you guys are doing? -Are you guys gambling again? -You, that's a great question, but before I answer that, I want you to check my phone for me. -Check your phone. -Uh huh. -I'm really, really sorry. -Uh huh. -Yeah, you are sorry aren't you? Yeah, rub my back a little more. You know I'm also thirsty. Look my thermos in the control room. Could you get it for me? -Okay, okay. -Thanks baby, yeah. Just go to that direction. -That's how you do it. -Wow man. -I don't believe what I just saw. -You just saw it. -You know what? I need that app right now. -Get on that. -I told you I got this man. -How awesome was that? -She's like a dog man. -Where did you get that? -I can go at least, I should say, "roll over" and she rolls over. -Who let the dogs out? Who let them out? -Call that-- -Oh nice. -My darling your tea. -My tea like that. -Yes, uh huh. -You guys cheers to that. That's how we do it alright. -Totally man. -Wow, just taste good. -That's great. -Yeah. -Alright, here we go. -What's it? -Huh, it's not good. Okay. Look, come on. -So, apparently, Brian is still busy, but you can e-mail us at email@example.com. Thanks for watching. We'll see you guys next week. I can definitely do this job.
