Apple We already talked about iOS 7 yesterday (after a night of sleep, it's only looking worse and worse - look at this, for Fiona's sake!), so now it's time to talk about the downright stunning and belly flutters-inducing new Mac Pro. As former owner and huge, huge, huge fan of the PowerMac G4 Cube - I haven't been this excited about an Apple product since, well, I would say the iMac G4. This is the Apple I used to love.

Well, the machine is engineered around a vertical cooling core.
The heat rises through the column and is expelled at the top.
Even though it has a large fan, I'm sure a horizontal placement will mess up the cooling efficiency.

I think it's actually quite clever engineering, having all components share a single heat sink and also share a single fan. Neat stuff.
