My Macbook Air was having some issues shutting down when I closed the lid, so I took it into the Apple Store to get it diagnosed. Looks like there’s a hardware issue. Doh.

Apple has offered to replace the logic board for $280—a reasonable price, but I think that I’m going to use it as it is. Eventually, I’ll sell it on Craigslist.

I will say that if I was in the market for a new laptop, I’d be interested in the new MacBooks. So nice… Okay, I’ve got to stop looking! My life is served perfectly with my iPhone and 15″ Macbook Pro.

While I was at the store, I checked out the new iPhones. They’re pretty much the same form factor. The new 7 plus camera is actually a huge improvement on both sides.

Right off the bat, the colors, detail, contrast and zoom are way better. The optical zoom is definitely cool.

Overall, the improvements aren’t really visibly noticeable.

Whoa, they’re even selling the new drones there. That would be a fuuuuuuuun toy. 4k… Curses, I need to stop looking at this stuff.
