Mac production will begin in the U.S.

“Next year we’re going to bring some production to the U.S.,” Tim Cook told Bloomberg Businessweek. “This doesn’t mean that Apple will do it ourselves, but we’ll be working with people and we’ll be investing our money.”

“We’ve been working for years on doing more and more in the United States,” , Cook said he believed that there weren’t enough workers in the United States with the skills to support the manufacture of consumer electronics; re-establishing Apple, he suggested, might help reverse the trend and lead other companies back home.

“The consumer electronics world was really never here,” Cook said. “It’s a matter of starting it here.”

He continued to defend the company’s hiring practices, telling Bloomberg Businessweek: “I don’t think we have a responsibility to create a certain kind of job. But I think we do have a responsibility to create jobs.”

And Cook said that Jobs told him to ignore comparisons between the two men.

“He told me, on a couple of occasions—before he passed away—to never question what he would have done,” Cook said. “Never ask the question, ‘What would Steve do?’ just do what’s right.”

Apple’s new iPad and iPhone 5 will start selling from 7th December

iPad mini and the fourth generation iPad will start selling from 7th, December and iPhone 5 will start selling from 14th, December. As one of Apple’s biggest markets, would it be a great sales again?

Apple’s iPhone has been one of the most popular smartphones among consumers in China, creating long lines outside of company stores in Beijing and Shanghai on the first day of sales. But unlike previous iPhone launches where it was first-come first-served, Apple is using a reservation system this time around to sell the device at its company stores in China. Chinese people in Shenzhen also can go to Apple Store opened in November for a look for the new Apple products, but they may like to purchase in HongKong for a lower cost.

iTunes 11 now is available to download

iTunes 11 is now available to download, you can click here to go Apple website iTunes page.

What’s new?

Since it was told a redesign iTunes, users would expect a lot before downloading and installing iTunes 11.

New Interface

Yes, it is redesigned but you still recognize it is iTunes.

The new interface displays all buttons and features in a simply way. Much more white space is left in the interface, need to click drop-down buttons to list all options. Content comes first. Will get used to the new interface with 10 or 20 minutes, even though we have used iTunes 10 for a couple of years. The iTunes Store has a new design as well, in order to share the same user experience across all devices and operating systems.

iCloud Integration

The most important improvement is a deep integration with iCloud. Users are now able to browse and stream their content much more easily than before. iCloud integration built-in is a much needed improvement for video content as well, as you don’t want to keep gigabytes of HD movies and TV shows on a small SSD.

New Mini Player

The mini-player is redesigned, with the ability to search directly from the small window. You can even manage your “Up Next” queue without opening the app.

Better Search

In addition to being added to the mini player, the search function has been greatly improved as well. It now has a pop-up interface that returns results for artists, albums and songs with album art for each result.

Up Next

You can put tracks in a queue to play after the current track, without building a playlist.

After clicking start button for a track in your library, you may like to play another song next. With iTunes 10, you can either switch back to the application after the current song or build a play list, not that convenient. Now with iTunes 11, you can just queue up the song you had in mind at once after starting the first one. That is much more convenient and no need to get back to iTunes interface again.
