Apple’s in-store tech support is well-known for being maniacally bright-eyed and bushy-tailed, but they meet their match with the Evil Genius: show up five minutes late, get vaporized.
Beyond the Magic Mouse, iMac and MacBook, here’s Apple’s other 10/20 news: a slick Remote, two-battery Wireless Keyboard, reinforced 60W Power Adapter and refreshed Mini.
Apple’s MacBook finally gets some love from its Pro siblings; it sports a glossy unibody plastic shell, a built-in 7 hour battery, glass multi-touch trackpad, and 13″ LED backlit display.
With larger 21.5″ and 27″ 16:9 LED IPS displays, a tapered base and edge-to-edge glass, Apple’s iMac gets more than new looks: it tops out with a quad-core Core i5 CPU (but no Blu-ray).
Chief amongst Apple’s announcements today is their new Magic Mouse: it’s features a seamless multi-touch shell, four months of battery life, a laser-tracking engine and Bluetooth.
Tapping on Tap Tap Revenge’s shoulder, Rock Band is now available on the iPhone and iPod Touch: it features single and 4-player (via Bluetooth) modes, 4 instruments and 20 songs.
We prefer the looks of the first Armband, but Incase’s new Sports Armband Pro “sports” a velcro tab for corralling rowdy stray headphone cords; it’ll work with 4th and 5th gen iPod nanos.
You’ll need Viper’s $499 SmartStart system, but the SmartStart App lets you control your car via iPhone: start the engine, lock and unlock doors, open the trunk or set off the alarm.
Keep your iPhone’s maps app in plain sight (and look totally badass) while biking with the iBike Rider; it’s a hands-free kit that includes a mic and a waterproof, wrist-mounted case.
It’s about time: Blackberry Desktop Manager brings USB/Wi-Fi syncing to Mac apps including iCal, Address Book and Entourage, along with music and playlists via iTunes.
Apple turns into a pumpkin this year with Throwboy’s new Halloween Finder Pillows; each measures 9″x11″ with Spooker, Finderstein, Mac-o’-lantern, and Macula styles.
Fatty Spins gets personal with an MBP with Love At The Apple Store; it was recorded at the 5th Avenue location and true to New York, nobody around him seems to notice.
Available for preorder: Dots’ D200 gloves keep your hands warm while letting you use your iPhone with three conductive dots; it sports a fleece lining, nylon shell and grippy microfiber palm.
Use it with your iPhone Stencil Kit: Notepod seems pricey at $18 for 300 sheets, but the iPhone form factor and the thick 80gsm laser stock ensure this’ll be a noteworthy investment.
Made out of solid wood and bamboo with a UV and moisture-resistant clear-coat, Vers’ iPhone/iPod cases obscure most of the screen but are easily removed with a quick eject detail.
Apple fans are often criticized for living in a reality distortion field, but these edited (but unrepeated) clips of Jobs and gang at the recent 9/9/09 keynote make its source clear: Cupertino.
Kevin Tong’s iSteamPhone gets a follow-up with this iSteamMac tee; it’s a steampunk rendition of the legendary 1984 Macintosh 128K, complete with DaVinci-style annotations.
CollegeHumor takes the Jobsian juggernaut to its logical extremes with The Apple “i”, a marriage of marketing, materials and geek machismo that firmly puts form over function.
Most of 9/9/09’s fanfare focused on the video cam-packin’ Nano, but there was no missing their special edition Shuffle: it’s finished in stainless steel and only available in Apple stores.
Alright, so the name could use some work unless you fancy a perm, but the PowerCurl is a potential godsend for MacBook owners; it’s a clip-on cord wrap for MagSafe Adapters.
Apple’s iPod Nano 5G may look like the 4G, but it’s a brand new beast with a cheaper price tag, a larger 2.2″ display, 640×480 video camera, pedometer, FM radio, mic and speaker.
Beyond the Nano, Apple’s other 9/9 news: iPod Touch gets up to 64 GB and Open GL, Classic gets 160 GB, Shuffle gets new colors, iTunes store gets tweaked and iPhone OS goes up to 3.1.
Designed for classrooms to maintain direct sight lines to the teacher, the MacTable is a semi-recessed desk which will hold 20″-24″ iMacs with curves that mimic Apple’s own aesthetics.
Oh witty wordplay, how we love thee: little did we know Apple’s new product wasn’t a tablet, but a Swiss Army version of the iMac: the iMac Gyver slices, dices and makes julienne fries.
Sangean’s Radio and iPod Player features a watertight compartment for your iPod and can survive up to a 5 foot drop, making it ideal for rough and tumble worksites and environments.
Minimize desk clutter with the BackPack; it’s an adjustable shelf that piggybacks on the desk stand of iMacs and Apple Cinema Displays and holds everything from USB hubs to a Mac mini.
