New 21-inch iMac Available 30 November, 27-inch to Ship in December

According to TNW (The Next Web), Apple announced today that the 21-inch iMac will be available starting 30 November 2012 and the 27-inch will be ready to ship some time in December, still no fixed date yet. The new iMac will offer the option of a Fusion Drive, a hybrid of a SSD together with a normal hard drive, this and the much thinner form factor is the selling point of this 8th generation of iMac.

Let’s hope the 27-inch iMac will be ready to ship before Christmas as my three year old 27-inch iMac is long dued for retirement.

A New Way To Surf The Net on Your iPad – The Rockmelt Way

When it comes to reading newsfeed on the iPad, the Flipboard and Zite are my two favorites, but for the past couple weeks, Rockmelt for iPad is gaining my affection because of two unique factors.  First off, one start off with Rockmelt by logging into their Facebook or Twitter account and Rockmelt will learn what you are interested in from what you click or share.  The second key factor is that unlike Flipboard and Zite, Rockmelt has a search bar built in and that can add your personal preferences to the whole learning process as well.

You can get the app from the iTunes Store here. Reviews fro the app so far been great, test drive yours today.
