Welcome to the ninety-second episode of my series entitled BestTechInfo and Rumors! In this episode I discuss iOS 6, Apple’s new Retina MacBook Pro, the Jailbreak exploit that was patched, OS X Mountain Lion and more.
The above video is my unboxing of the latest mid-2012 MacBook Pro equipped with a Retina Display. Announced at this year’s World Wide Developers Conference, the new MacBook Pro sports a complete redesign and overhaul – offering an incredibly thin form factor.
Today, Apple held their annual World Wide Developers Conference (live coverage and updates from the event can be found here). Aside from announcing iOS 6, revealing minor upgrades to the MacBook Air and a completely redesigned MacBook Pro, Apple also announced new features for OS X Mountain Lion.
Today Apple seeded the fourth post-release Lion upgrade to the public: Mac OS X Update 10.7.4. The new update is available for immediate download and install via the Software Update option found in the Apple menu for all OS X-based computers running 10.7 or higher.
Last night, over a day after the 2012-003 Java update for OS X was released, Apple pushed out a standalone Flashback malware removal utility. The 2012-003 Java update implements a new Java applet security measure that intelligently disables the automatic execution of applets. The update also removes common variants of the Flashback malware.
Earlier this evening, Apple published a support document regarding the Flashback malware that has been infecting OS X-based computers running an older version of Java Runtime. While the Malware has reportedly infected over 600,000 Macs worldwide, it’s harder to become infected than one would think.
