Backlit Keyboard to Return in New MacBook Air



backlight

The new MacBook may come with a return of the backlit keyboard. The backlit keyboard was omitted from the October 2010 redesign of the laptops line, as rumored, due to design issues and battery life constrains. The new MacBook Airs will feature the design of 2010 MacBook Airs. A backlit keyboard may be helpful in low-light conditions, and it’s currently implemented in all versions of Apple’s MacBook Pro line. Appleinsider’s sources, who are familiar with the matter, claim that the new laptops will be launched any time this month.

With the release of new models later this month, Apple is set to reinstate a feature to its MacBook Airs that went missing when the company overhauled the ultra-thin notebooks into more cost-affordable products late last year, AppleInsider has learned.

According to people familiar with the matter, backlit keyboards will join the string of hardware enhancements planned for the new 11.6- and 13.3-inch notebooks, which are also expected to adopt high-speed Thunderbolt ports, an upgrade to Intel’s Sandy Bridge architecture, and possibly high-speed 400MBps flash memory.

A Woman Tried to Commit A Suicide Because of Lost iPhone



wong

Chinese newspaper Oriental Daily has recently reported about a woman who tried to commit a suicide because... of an iPhone.

Mrs. Wong, who lives in Hong Kong, recently bought an iPhone 4. She was so happy about her purchase that when she accidentally lost it, she immediately called her husband and asked him to buy another one. But the truth is she has two kids to think about and Mr. Wong is just a bus driver, so two iPhones in one week for such a family appeared to be expenses they couldn't afford.
