                MacBook Air rumor roundup: Sandy Bridge, Thunderbolt, and back to black? (Digital Trends)

                Jun 29 2011 Published by under General Interest

                Digital Trends – It’s become evident in the last month or so that an update to Apple’s popular MacBook Air laptops is likely just around the corner. Releasing newer, updated models around this time of year would be in keeping with the company’s prior patterns, and rumors have been coming at us left and right. Something else that has bolstered these rumors is the fact that Best Buy is no longer shipping the most popular MacBook Air models. The most expensive version of the laptop is still available, and the computers can be purchased in-store, but it’s pretty clear that Best Buy is trying to clear out its stock of MacBook Airs, meaning that they must be expecting to receive updated models in the very near future. The update seems like more of an inevitability now than a rumor, but there are still no concrete details on what improvements and changes to expect. While we won’t know for sure until the official announcement, we’ve rounded up some of the rumors on what the new MacBook Airs might have in store.

                  Google launches tool to convert Flash into iPhone-friendly HTML5 (Digital Trends)

                  Jun 29 2011 Published by under General Interest

                  Digital Trends – Google Labs on Tuesday launched an experimental product that promises to convert .SWF files into HMTL5, making formerly-Flash files compatible with mobile devices that include Apple’s iPad and iPhone. The web-based tool, dubbed Swiffy, won’t convert pages that have .SWF embedded, rather individual Flash files must be uploaded to the site and Swiffy then spits out the HTML5 code. That makes the Swiffy more suited for developers rather than for anyone with an iPhone trying to watch a flash animation.
