We've said it before, but we'll say it again, we like our Apple devices here at Mashable. However, we're also not going to ignore that fact that when it comes to deals, Apple could do a little better in helping the diehards save a few bucks here and there. Luckily, that's where Amazon comes in. Right now, the 12-inch Apple MacBook is $1199 on Amazon, $100 off the regular price of $1299. Under the hood, it comes packing an Intel Core m3 processor with 8GB of RAM, so the speeds will definitely live up to Apple standards.
LOS ANGELES – We know that Apple is bankrolling Hollywood stars such as Oprah to make TV shows for the iPhone distributor. We don't know when they will appear or in what form – could it be part of the existing Apple Music service or a new entertainment channel to take on Netflix and Amazon, perhaps? Apple long has offered video-on-demand services, but it never has offered anything to rival Netflix or Hulu. Instead, it has directed viewers to its iTunes service, where they could buy and rent movies for viewing on computers, phones and via the Apple TV set-top box. This à la carte service competes with YouTube and Amazon Video rentals.
However, there was still a lot to take in. How does the new MacBook Pro's Touch Bar work, exactly? And what's this TV app that Apple introduced? Don't worry about having to spend ages reading (or watching the full replay) if you don't have time, though. We've recapped the entire presentation in a 9-minute video, so you can get the gist of Apple's media shindig in the time it takes to grab a drink.
Apple is to the tech world what Disney is to the world of entertainment media. The long lines have become as ubiquitous a sight at Apple stores during product launches as the once-bitten Newton's apple that has been the company's logo since the days of flying toaster screen savers and mouse pads. The U.S. is home to most of the world's Apple Stores. Here's where Apple has real estate in markets around the world.
