No Firewire Port on the new MacBooks

Many users have been complaining to Apple after finding out that the firewire port on the new MacBooks has been removed.

Apple has kept Firewire only on the new MacBook Pros but not on the entry-level MacBooks. The previous plastic MacBook had a Firewire port and Apple justified it’s removal by saying that most peripherals are now using USB 2.0 and there should be less and less demand for Firewire as months go by.

This much is true but how about the people that have and want to keep their Firewire devices? I guess they’ll have to go for the more expansive MacBook Pro…

Mac users: Pirate Like a PC!

Since BitTorrent bought uTorrent back in 2006, they’ve been working on a Mac version of their software but it hasn’t seen the day since yesterday.

A pre-release version of the software is now available through various torrent-download trackers.

The company says that this version should never have been leaked and they discourage Mac users from even using it since it is not stable enough to be released to the public.

Anything really! At MacDailyNews, they think it might be a Pro version of the Mac Mini. Also there are rumors that it could be a tablet-style notebook.

If you follow the NetBook trend, my guess would be a Mac version of a NetBook (really small MacBook 9” or something but that’s just me 😉 )
