The 404 1,072: Where we're broadcasting in Retina (podcast)

A roundup of our favorite announcements from Apple's Worldwide Developers Conference, as well as a few features we'd like to see come next.


Apple hopefuls didn't get the Apple TV or desktop updates they were expecting, but yesterday's Worldwide Developers Conference certainly made things more exciting for iOS users and imaging professionals.

Apple announced a new Retina Display MacBook Pro with serious specs that won't mean a thing for the average consumer who doesn't need a quad-core processor, a solid-state drive, and discrete graphics to browse Reddit and send a few e-mails. Regardless, graphics editors will appreciate the updates even if Apple did inflate its statistics.

There are also a lot of updates to iOS 6 coming out this fall, and today we'll round up a few of our favorites.

There's the new in-house 3D mapping app with Flyover, a bigger, better Siri that reads turn-by-turn navigation and can launch apps, as well as plenty of updates to iCloud that make a convincing argument for users to adopt the entire Apple ecosystem.

But even if you don't plan on throwing down three grand for a new MacBook Pro or Air, the Apple online store is already offering discounts on last-generation computers. Tune in to hear more about how you can score the best deal on older models.
