This new Mac Book looks great, mix the Mac Book green with pro and make it small (13″ width, widescreen would be nice) and it could be my next computer.

It’s a good thing the economy is the way it is though, because there is no mention of this machine on Apple.com whatsoever. Or any sign of it being purchasable in the near future. No “Froogle” or news jumps out at me. (And I’m demanding and require that for it to count as marketed.)

The worst thing is that Apple.com’s search doesn’t make any sense, they promote random movies when I search for what should be Apple products. Is this some lame iTunes tie-in? That’s just what it is, lame.

Add a page for every product and/or ad you serve to TV Apple, god, I thought you were smarter than that!

At least(???) we can enjoy the above ad, but it’s kind of like the fairy tale that is the rest of our hopes for bettering our planet. It’s not like I don’t trust Barack Obama, it’s just that well, it’s lame duck season, and unfortunately that doesn’t mean hunting.

A foot note, kudos to YouTube for their new video embed. Not only does it work well with WordPress, but it matches almost any site, which is so tempting now that there are so many other embeddable video sites! I just wish the Google affiliation with it could fit into my layouts (sidebars) like these vids do my posts!! (However we can go straight to YouTube to get Google code for single videos or multiples, so although it won’t fit most sidebars, it’s a great step!) (Of course, getting revenue from embedding YouTube videos into posts is also huge incentive!)

    It is the MacBook, there is no special version, it’s the current version on sale. The Pro is “Green” as well, there’s no “Green” and Un”Green” versions. It’s the first thing you see at apple.com.
