Send Article to a Friend

TidBITS editor in chief Tonya Engst joined the MacJury to talk about Apple’s 23 October 2012 announcement of the iPad mini and new Mac models, along with Dave Hamilton, Mark Fuccio, and Omaha Sternberg, plus host Chuck Joiner. Note that Glenn’s TidBITS article “How Apple “Doubled” iPad Wi-Fi Throughput“ (24 October 2012) has better information about the faster Wi-Fi speeds in the new iPad models than what was shared on the MacJury.Generic Globefollow link
