Mac-iPhone Update For August 22, 2008

For the mobile Mac, Macdailynews is reporting that two potential chips announced at the developer forum this week may be headed to the Macbook Air. The speed of the chip is about the same as the current version in the MBA but it will be running at a faster bus and likely with the newer X4500 integrated graphics card.  And in case you're in the market for a new MBA, you'll have to wait until September if Apple is going to continue using these smaller packaged chips.

Apple's iPhone is now available on 21 more countries.  So far, no one seems to be covering it so much, I guess with the Olympics going on and all.

iPhone-iPod Update:
  • iPhone Atlas is reporting that Apple has confirmed 2.0.2 will fix some 3G problems.  However, ATT and Apple are talking a more proactive role in convincing iPhone owners to upgrade.
  • Check out our pick for Friday's movie.  It's got a "maybe" real hologram and the iPhone.
  • Macdailynews has reported Apple signed with Russian carriers to start selling iPhones in September.
  • TUAW is reporting 45 million iPhones in 2009?
Mac Update:
  • Apple has released an update to the Macbook Air.  Firmware update.  Sorry, not the real thing.
  • Roughly Drafted has a must read article if a secured MobileMe is of concerned to you.  Well, an unsecured MobileMe, perhaps.
  • eWeek blogs on Mac sales picking up steam with enterprise. 
  • There is another app, pearPad, that turns the iPhone into a remote touch pad.  Another app, Pad, also does the same thing.  Macsimumnews reports.
