The entry-level iMacs of 2009 sports Nvidia Geforce Graphics, while top models – ATI Radeon. The FireWire “400” port was dropped for an extra USB port thus making four of them in total and the Mini-DVI was swapped for Mini DisplayPort. The processor remained the same. The Core 2 Duo 3.06 24-inches (Early 2009) features a 3.06 GHz Intel Core 2 Duo processor (E8435), with two independent processor “cores” on a single silicon chip, 4 GB of RAM, a 1TB GB Serial ATA hard drive (7200 RPM), a slot-loading DVD+R DL Super Drive, NVIDIA GeForce GT 130 graphics with 512 MB of dedicated GDDR3 memory, a built-in iSight webcam, a microphone and stereo speakers, as well as a Firewire “800” and 4 USB 2.0 ports. It also has built-in draft and enabled AirPort Extreme (802.11n 802.11a/b/g/n) and Bluetooth 2.1+EDR, Gigabit Ethernet and Mini DisplayPort capable of supporting a second display. The cooling system is CPU controlled and the in-built speakers are mounted beneath the 24” screen for the sound to bounce off the desk or other surface. The speakers’ grills also work as the vent ones. The iMac “Core 2 Duo” 3.06 20-inch (Early 2009) is shipped with a smaller Apple Keyboard short of the numerical keypad and Mighty Mouse. (more…)

iPod Touch MC 2nd Gen Jailbreak-proof

The iPod touch MC 2nd gen has a new jailbreak-proof bootrom, at least, Apple engineers declared it to be. Other than that, the MC model is identical to the ordinary iPod touch 2nd gen and the only way to tell the difference is to look up the model number. Apple corporation change В to C, that’s where MC in the model title is from. The model got a different marketing as well. Rather than a portable player, the iPod touch 2nd gen was advertised as the smallest portable PC with web access and the gaming device. Due to that fact, some vendors marketed this iPod as the third generation model, which is completely wrong. The iPod touch 2nd gen mimics iPhone 3G with its chromed steel back and rounded corners but lacks cellular mode, A-GPS and in-built camera. It’s thicker but lighter than the iPod touch 1st gen and sports a silver front trim. The player shares the same multi-touch 3.5 screen with 320 x 480 resolution, an accelerometer to automatically adjust the screen either in portrait or in landscape mode, a light sensor to tweak screen brightness and an integrated Wi-Fi (802.11b/g) module. An external volume control and an integrated speaker have been added to the device, but the microphone is built in the Apple Earphones with Remote and Mic. The battery life was enhanced up to 36 hours of music playback and 6 hours of video playback. The iPod touch 2nd gen shares the OS with the iPhone and has a lot of iPhone features and apps in a bundle: Safari web browser, YouTube, calendar, contacts, clock, calculator, email, stocks, notes and weather as well as telltale iPod features: Genius playlists maker and a shake-to- “shuffle” function plus Nike+ Kit support. Keep in mind though, that iPod 2nd gen lacks the GSM module and is not capable of geo position when off wi-fi network. (more…)
