Michael Harper for redOrbit.com — Your Universe Online There are many who try to “figure out” Apple, predicting what they will do next based on launch history. Sometimes this kind of reasoning works. For example, Apple will usually update their MacBook Pros twice a year. Up until last year, Apple has also updated their iPod line in September. Of course, this desire to find rhyme or reason to Apple´s actions can often be futile. Whom of us doesn´t remember...

Michael Harper for redOrbit.com - Your Universe Online It stings to be disowned on your own turf: Just ask RIM. So, when Apple decided to build their MacBook Pro with Retina Display in a tightly contained shell, they may not have expected their own city to turn their back and block any purchase of their computers. Earlier this week, it was announced that Apple was seeking to withdraw from the EPEAT program, removing any subsequent certification given to their products. The Electronic...

Now, thanks to a...

Michael Harper for redOrbit.com - Your Universe Online One of Apple´s many idiosyncrasies is the way in which they change: Always quick to kill and slow to adopt. Examples of this behavior dot Apple´s history, from killing the iPod Mini (one of their best-selling products) just a year and a half after its introduction to adding USB 3.0 two years after other companies started employing the technology in their machines. They´re cautious, slow approach to adding new features...
