Calling it an “honor, a privielege and truly from my heart to Steve,” Apple VP and kahuna beach moondog Eddy Cue accepted a posthumous award on Steve Jobs’s behalf last night, as the Apple founder was inducted into the Bay Area Business Hall of Fame. And Cue had a pretty cool anecdote to tell about Steve.

‘Tis the season for class-action lawsuits, and a new one is being brought against Apple, alleging that the Cupertino-based company knew about problems effecting the 27-inch iMac, yet did nothing to stop them.
Even as DVDs become less and less desirable and the idea of streaming media becomes more prevalent, going with a Blu-ray disc for home entertainment is still a great experience. But not every device can handle Blu-ray discs, let alone give you the kind of control and simplicity of use that many of us crave.
That’s where this Cult of Mac Deals offer comes in. For a limited time, you can get Aurora Mac Blu-Ray Player for only $19.95 – and save time and money in the process.
With Aurora’s Blu-ray software, you can freely control playback. You’ll have the ability to play any title or chapter and adjust the screen size as necessary. The app even allows you to customize your experience, such as choosing the language and background image and changing the playback behaviors. And if you’re a Blu-ray power user, you can de-interlace movies (manual or automatic) to get better visual quality according to your display configuration.
Apple silently snuck up on us all yesterday with new 21.5-inch and 27-inch iMacs, but short of upgrading them with Haswell processors, what has really changed? As is their custom, everyone’s favorite gadget dissectors over at iFixIt have torn apart their new iMacs to find out.
Apple announced a new iMac this morning, and now a software update has already been pushed out for the new hardware.
EFI Update 2.1 was released today for Apple’s late 2013 iMac. It “addresses an issue which may cause a black screen to appear when installing Windows 7 or Windows 8 using Boot Camp Assistant if both an external optical drive and USB thumb drive are connected to the system.” The update “also ensures that the system will boot by default into OS X after installation of Windows 8.”

Apple has today announced a new iMac update which sees the latest fourth-generation Intel quad-core Haswell processors, new graphics, next-generation Wi-Fi, and faster PCIe flash storage options added to the popular all-in-one desktop.
Identity is like a Smart Cover for your iMac… kinda. It’s an aluminum strips that sticks to the iMac’s “chin” using magnets, and, uh, adds a strip of color. There’s even a cutout to let the Apple logo show through, a phenomenon familiar to aficionados of iPad cases (I call these peek-a-boo cases “assless iChaps”).
But wait: the iDentity isn’t quite as useless as it first seems. The strip can be customized – using lasers – to any design you like.

If you take a trip to the local laboratory supply store, and then follow it up by dropping into the vintage camera shop (or just a thrift store) then you could make your own beautiful lamp, just like those fashioned from dead photo gear by the Taiwanese Ystudio. It sure beats the usual crap you get from Ikea.
