Here’s my favorite mac rumor of the day. 9to5mac.com says that Apple is getting ready to release a new 15″ MacBook Pro that will be almost as thin as it’s 13″ MacBook Air and even more powerful. New features will include a retina display, like the stunning screens on the new iPad, and USB 3.0 for very fast device to computer connectivity. Of course, it’s just a rumor, but 9to5mac.com says look for the new MacBook this summer. And, according to the Wall Street Journal, Apple is also preparing its first major upgrade to its iCloud service. Soon you will be able to share photos with others, as opposed to just between your own Apple iDevices – and, sync your personal videos as well. Sources say that all of this may be part of Apple’s next mobile operating system iOS 6, and could be announced as early as June. Which is great because starting July 1, everyone’s going to forced to be on iCloud.
