Prototype MacBook Pro with SIM slot surfaces on eBay, unicorns actually exist

Sunday, August 14th, 2011

Always dreamt of a Apple notebook with built-in WWAN? Looks like today’s your lucky day: a prototype MacBook Pro just surfaced on eBay, replete with a SIM card slot and retractable antenna in tow. Expecting a nonfunctional parts machine off Craigslist, its newfound owner managed to resuscitate the 2007-esque gizmo into booting, but was unfortunately unable to coax any GSM goodness from the thing. According to the seller, regular MacBook Pros from the era contain the same (but unused) solder points for the SIM card as the proto, lending credence to the notion that Cupertino might have seriously considered a 3G variant. Either way, if you’ve got a knack for rare Apple collectibles, or feel the need to ogle and some red-colored innards, hit the source below.

Sanho announces new HyperDrive line-up, still enough storage for your Frank Zappa discography

Sunday, January 30th, 2011

Surely you remember Sanho’s HyperDrive lineup — ya know, the only portable HDD that plays nicely with the iPad? Well, if you don’t dig the $249 entry level price, you’re in luck. The company just announced a bunch of new HDDs for you to take with you and your iPad on that road trip you’ve had planned for years. The new drives no longer sport the QVGA color display or the CF and SD card slots — instead, the black case has two mini USB ports and a power socket. The HyperDrive doesn’t come with the traditional AC adapter but instead a USB-to-DC cable and the user-replaceable battery will allow up to 40GB of transfers on a single charge. And if you’re wondering why there’s two USB ports, we really couldn’t tell you. Perhaps if you choose the right port while connected to your PC and enter the Konami code, unicorns and fairy dust will pop out of your screen — wishful thinking, we know. The HyperDrives ship in March (pre-ordering is available now) with prices starting at $99 for a bring-your-own-drive housing, 1TB for $349 and various sizes in-between. So, if your photo/video library is worth accessing at all times, well, props to you. Press release is after the break.
