There was undoubtedly more happening last week, but between WWDC exhaustion and our TidBITS Presents: Adieu MobileMe event, this piece at Macworld with Tim Cook promising a new professional Mac was all that jumped out at us.

Cook Promises New Professional Mac for 2013 -- In response to a customer’s query about the underwhelming Mac Pro update released last week (see “Mac Pro Gains Only Minor Speed Bump, Not Thunderbolt or USB 3.0,” 11 June 2012), Apple CEO Tim Cook replied by email that Apple is indeed working on a more substantial update to the professional tower Mac. Cook writes, “Although we didn’t have a chance to talk about a new Mac Pro at today’s event, don’t worry as we’re working on something really great for later next year.” Macworld confirmed with Apple that the message was indeed from Cook.
