Twelve South   Back in December of 2010 I reviewed the BookBook for iPad. I still use that case because of the construction and protection it gives my iPad as well as the way it disguises it. The BookBook for MacBook Air brings that same protection to Apple’s lightweight portable line of computers.

Habla Espanola? Never mind. The Gmen talk about some of details of Mac OS X 10.7 Lion, Guy praises for their great service regarding his Mac Pro. They dissect the newly released MacBook Pros and talk a bit about some new 2nd generation device that Apples seems to think is SOOOOO important. Some tablet thing or other. We still think it’s just a fad.
