The rumors are once again being brought to the surface by a French site MacBidouille regarding Apple working on the ARM processor based Macs. A reliable source has claimed that Apple has in possession a couple of prototypes of several ARM-based machines such as an iMac, Mac mini, and 13" Notebook with 4-8 64-bit ARM Quad-core processors. It is being said that these machines have gone too far in the development process and they all comes with a new keyboard that makes use of a large-format Magic Trackpad. We are suspecting that Apple is nearly ready to make the announcement but still isn’t feeling so confident about it as yet.
MacBidouille isn’t a site which we would generally associate with rumors and this leads us to doubt the reliability of the sources it has stated. But this is not the first time we’re hearing about the ARM machines; these rumors have been there since years. The prototypes had always been there along the years but maybe the company wasn’t so sure about the plan and this explains the doubts of moving ahead with the project.
We suspect that this idea might have first occurred to Apple when it threatened to abandon Intel's chips if they didn't work to slash power consumption. Apple could have easily gone for AMD processors but rumors of the ARM already started appearing.

The iPhone 6’s packaging might not only include a redesigned smartphone, but a redesigned USB to Lightning cable. While it’s unlikely that Apple will yet-again change the Lightning port introduced with the 2012 iPhone 5 anytime in the near future, a redesigned version of the USB plug could be ready for this fall. Sketchy photos of a reversible USB cable first surfaced on the web last week, and Sonny Dickson yesterday shared another shot of the cables via Twitter.

The “geek mind” is concerned with more than just the latest iPhone rumors, or which company will win the gaming console wars. I4U is concerned with more than just the latest photo shoot or other celebrity gossip.
The “geek mind” is concerned with life, in all its different forms and facets. The geek mind wants to know about societal and financial issues, both abroad and at home. If a Fortune 500 decides to raise their minimum wage, or any high priority news, the geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants to know the top teams in the National Football League, or who’s likely to win the NBA Finals this coming year. The geek mind wants to know who the hottest new models are, or whether the newest blockbuster movie is worth seeing. The geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants—needs—knowledge.
