We'll admit, Apple's tightly integrated webcam
sure gets more attention than most, but the latest blurb about the iSight has less to do with movie stars
or underground storage facilities
and more with sheer utility. Apparently, the latest round of MacBook Pros have been equipped with an entirely new camera, and after seeing an all new USB Product ID code, a couple of curious onlookers had to find out more. By testing an older unit and then flocking to a retail Apple store to try out a shiny new machine, it was realized that the sensor in the iSight
had indeed been upgraded to 1.3-megapixels; 'course, it certainly won't revolutionize subway snapping, but hey, if you needed one more reason to pull the trigger on a new MacBook Pro
, you're welcome.
