Apple To Introduce A 12-inch Ultra-Portable MacBook In Space Gray, Gold, Silver?

It is now rumored that Apple is planning to launch an entirely new ultra-portable 12-inch MacBook next year that will be as slim as current MacBook Air portables with a Retina display, a redesigned buttonless glass trackpad, and a quiet fan-less design powered by Intel's newly developed Broadwell dual-core processors allowing for a cooler operation while also offering a greater increase in battery life and performance over Haswell processors. But what's more exciting than rumored news of a possible 12-inch Retina MacBook Air is one that for the first time would be offered in new aluminum hues including silver, gold and Space Gray to coincide with the current iPhone 6 lineup and any future Apple product release such as the iPad, which is highly likely to be offered in a gold color whenever Apple introduces the next-generation models.

Alleged Plastic Budget iPhone Packaging Leak Confirms iPhone 5C

Apple's more affordable plastic iPhone is being mass produced at this very moment, and it seems it cannot be kept a closely guarded secrete as it nears its official debut. This time a photo taken during a factory inspection by a member of a Chinese labor rights group shows empty plastic packaging shells of the plastic iPhone marked with an iPhone 5C branding, which is believed to stand for "Color" as it will be offered in 5 vibrant colors. This would be the first time Apple has moved from its iconic, minimalist cardboard box packaging to hard plastic pod-shaped packaging reminiscent of HTC's smartphone packaging.
