Starting Countdown

The Apple Invitation

OK, one more Apple event scheduled for October 22nd. I am really hoping that we’ll have new MacBook Pros announced this time. New iPads are pretty much guaranteed, but come on Apple, I want to upgrade my MBP (need Haswell)!

OS X Mavericks

Apple has released the Golden Master OS X Mavericks to developers. I am hoping that this means that the new MacBook Pro will be released soon. I have been waiting for too long to upgrade my MBP!
