05/11/2012, There have been tons of reports and evidence that has suggested that Apple is looking to upgrade OS X to support ultra high resolution “HiDPI” screens.

04/16/2012, Heads up Mac OS X users, it looks like yet another trojan has been discovered. Dubbed the Sabpab by security company, Sophos, the trojan has been described as a “basic backdoor trojan horse” that connects to a control server using HTTP.

Premium, ultrathin notebooks that could perform well and last long longer than a couple of hours unplugged weren’t exactly common back then.
