Each week Ross Rubin contributes Switched On, a column about consumer technology. The title of Apple's recent Back to the Mac event turned out to have multiple meanings. The first was heralding a shift of Apple's event focus to the product that was once synonymous with the company. But it also ha

Oh dear, you missed it? Don't fret, we've got links for you. So many links. Apple was short on surprises at its intimate \"Back to the Mac\" event today, but that doesn't mean there weren't some interesting nuggets. Mac OS X Lion and MacBook Air lead the pack, but we find it's the little things that

We just spent some quality time with the new 13-inch MacBook Air, and it certainly seems like a worthy upgrade. It definitely feels significantly bigger than the 11-incher, and we noticed the function keys are standard MacBook size, as opposed to the shrunken ones on the 11. We also noticed that it

Look, all we can tell you is that this is one of the tiniest, thinnest, most lust-worthy laptops we've ever seen. We're taking a deeper look at the device right now, but for the time being, enjoy the gallery below! Update: Video after the break! %Gallery-105548% %Gallery-105559%

Amusingly enough, you know what's missing from the new MacBook Air models? Adobe Flash Player. While preloaded on Apple's past hardware, out of the box here it just says missing plugin, with no click to install option. To be fair, Flash doesn't come standard on a lot of machines, even for Windows,

What's a MacBook Air to do in the case of a software emergency without an internal or external optical drive? Well, Apple's thankfully considered that situation, and has included a Software Reinstall USB drive with both the 11-inch and 13-inch models. As a bonus, it also makes an attractive additi

Hoo boy, our tipster was spot on with this one, Apple's adding an 11.6-inch sibling to its newly redesigned 13.3-inch MacBook Air. It'll have a dual-core 1.4GHz Intel Core 2 Duo CPU (upgradeable to 1.6GHz on the more expensive model), 1366 x 768 resolution, and a $999 starting price for the 64GB SS

Apple asked itself what would happen if an iPad and a MacBook Air \"hooked up.\" Benefits from the iPad? \"Instant on... great battery life, amazing standby time... solid state storage... and it's thinner and lighter.\" It's 0.68-inches thick at its thickest, 0.11-inches at its thinnest, and weighs 2.

As promised, Apple today offered a preview of Mac OS X 10.7, a.k.a \"Lion,\" which Steve Jobs says has been inspired by the company's efforts with iOS. That inspiration has resulted in an expanded use of multitouch gestures (but not on a vertical screen), an emphasis on iPad-like full screen applicat

We just spotted the FaceTime logo, or a version of it, lurking in the OS X dock during Apple's iMovie 11 demo. New version of iChat with FaceTime compatibility? We'd put money on it. Update: It's real! It appears to be an all-new app, instead of a version of iChat AV. You use your Mac's Address

Oh man, the Apple Store is down, guys. Do you think that means Apple might be about to announce or release new products that we can buy with human money? We're going to camp outside of the Apple HQ and liveblog our experience, just in case something goes down. Our guess is 1PM, were anything to hap

Ah, it's good to see Apple can leak its announcements ahead of time just like the rest of the world. Overzealous forum mods on Apple's own site have been setting up Discussions sections for products to be announced at today's Back to the Mac event a little early, which has inevitably been picked up

So, we've just been discussing the rumored, and long overdue, MacBook Air refresh with a trusted source. This person recently had a working model in their possession for a few minutes and managed to glean quite a bit of detail that would seemingly confirm Apple's plan to announce an 11-inch MacBook
