Wacom, a graphics drawing tool most pro designers tote around or at the very least drool over, introduced a compact tablet with a full HD display on Tuesday called Cintiq 13HD.

As the name suggests, the Cintiq 13HD boasts a 13.3-inch, 1,920-by-1,080-pixel resolution, wide-angle display mounted on an adjustable, three-point stand that is also detachable. The entire form factor debuts at 4.75-by-9.75-by-0.5 inches and 2.65 pounds, which is considerably smaller and more mobile than the earlier 22HD, 24HD, and 24HD touch Cintiq models that are mostly stationary and gobble up 2 feet of desktop space.

The chassis notably sports four changeable shortcut buttons, called ExressKeys, the classic Rocker Ring, and a home button, and the swanky tablet further comes with Wacom’s famous pen. The cordless and battery-free Pro Pen specifically touts 2,048 levels of pressure, tilt recognition, and two side toggles, and it includes nine various—standard, felt, and stroke— nibs, a desk stand, and carry case.

Last but not least, a regular USB 2.0 data connection through a three-in-one cable pipes the HD display power and signal.  The Wacom Cintiq 13HD for Mac and Windows computers launches in early April for $999 in the United States and £749.99 in the United Kingdom.

John Browett, Apple’s former head of retail who lasted only six months at the company, recently told attendees of the Retail Week Live conference that he learned much from his experience in Cupertino and is now a “kinder person.”

While admitting he as acquired a degree of humility, Browett explained he “just didn’t fit within the way (Apple) ran the business.” Browett also said Apple is a fantastic business with great people, products, and culture, and he loved working there, but he has since become very clear of how he is and what he is like to work with.

“It will make me much better at doing my job in the future,” he added. “It was one of those shocking things where you were rejected from the organization for fit rather than competency.”

9to5Mac first broke the news that Apple sold refurbished merchandise through its own eBay store last year, equipped with the same price tags, full warranties, and approved inspections, and now the company has dropped prices on many of those items below what it offers at store.apple.com.

9to5Toys and eventually Dealnews recently noticed a $100 price cut for Apple’s 13-inch MacBook Air with 1.8GHz i5 and 128GB of storage (now over). It costs $100 more at store.apple.com for the same refurbished unit.

An even better eBay deal has emerged today: Apple’s 11.6-inch MacBook Air with 1.8GHz, 4GB SDRAM and 256GB SSD is only $949. It’s certified refurbished unite, while the same refurb model goes for $1,059 on Apple.com, and the 256GB MacBook Airs start at $1,299 new. All items come with free standard shipping, and eBay adds sales tax for only a few states at purchase and allows folks to pay with PayPal and BillMeLater. expand full story

Marvel launched a new iOS app today, called Marvel Unlimited, that gives unlimited access to a huge range of comic titles.

The new app is different from the previously existing Marvel app and expands upon the company’s HTML5 on-demand reader, Marvel Digital Comics Unlimited, that launched recently. The new app features the same subscription model as the web-based version: $10 per month (or a temporary annual subscription for $59.98, equaling $5 per month).

Marvel Digital Comics Unlimited

Marvel Digital Comics Unlimited is like Netflix or Spotify for comics, as it allows signed-in subscribers to get access to new releases and most popular comics from the last week. Each available issue offers a tappable cover that brings up a story summary and preview sample, and it sports publication details on the original print issue, release date, and creators. Subscribers can choose to read titles immediately or save up to six issues for offline reading.

A quick look at the app’s front-page selection on Thursday shows the 1998 No.1 issues of Captain America and Iron Man, 2012 No. 1 issue of Avengers vs. X-Men, 1968 No. 134 issue of Iron Man, and 2010 No. 9 issue of The Twelve, and much more. The bottom menu bar gives users further options for browsing by series, character, creator, or comic events, as well as access to their account.
