WSJ: Analysts now agree we’re going to see new Retina Macs in June

A newly redesigned 15-inch MacBook Pro was all but rumor until we reported earlier this month that Apple indeed has a slimmed down, all-new MacBook Pro sporting a Retina display, Ivy Bridge, and speedy USB 3. We followed that up with a report revealing Apple’s new MacBook Airs and iMacs will both likely include super-high resolution Retina displays. At the time, we reported Apple’s WWDC in June would be expected for at least the unveiling of the new slim MacBook Pro; although, a gradual roll out of Retina iMacs and Airs following the Pros would not be much of a surprise. Apple typically rolls out new Mac features such as higher-res displays gradually.

Following those reports, The Wall Street Journal published a story today quoting analysts who now all seem to agree that we will see upgraded Macs this summer. Ben Reitzes of Barclays Capital claimed the new Retina Mac lineup would debut at WWDC in June:

Reitzes said it is likely the Mac line will feature the retina-display technology used in the iPad, as well as the new Ivy Bridge quad-core processors from Intel Corp. (INTC) He also estimates that Apple’s new operating-system upgrade, called Mountain Lion, and the new MacBook Airs should be on the market before the first Ultrabook laptops with Microsoft Corp.’s (MSFT) Windows 8 operating system hit the shelves in the fall… “We believe recent data reflect a pause ahead of new products, which we believe will be released this quarter in June,” according to Reitzes, who has an overweight rating and $750 target price on Apple’s stock.

New 10.8.2 beta build 12C35 goes out to AppleSeed testers

Apple notified participants of its AppleSeed program today that OS X Mountain Lion beta build 12C35 is now available for download. The 671MB update contains no known issues, Apple stated. Furthermore, Apple would like developers to focus on messages, Facebook, Game Center, Safari and Reminders when testing the pre-release software.

The release notes say “TDB,” which indicates this is not a final release. It is also worth noting this is not a release to members of Apple’s Developer Program, as that will presumably come later on.

Avoid these files like a swarm of bees to avoid iCloud thunderstorms

TUAW has a “cautionary tale” of what happens when attempting to move or rename the “Mobile Documents” folder where iCloud documents are stored:

“As if it were a swarm of bees, you should stay away from the SyncServices folder.’ — Apple

The moral of the story that I am about to tell is that Apple’s advice about the SyncServices folder also applies to your iCloud documents. Here is the summary:

Do not move your iCloud folder. Do not touch your iCloud folder. Consider it the digital equivalent of a hand-grenade which has had the pin pulled and which is resting safely on its handle.”

New Java 7 exploit said to be super dangerous for Macs (But isn’t)

Update: The attack vulnerability is in Java 1.7 which almost no Mac Users are using (you’d need to update to 1.7 manually)

In what seems like a flashback to a couple of months ago, several security experts are now warning folks about a new Java 7 exploit that is said to be super dangerous for Mac owners. As Metasploit’s Tod Beardsley told ComputerWorld, the bug can be exploited through any browser (including browsers on Windows and Linux) on a machine that has Java installed.

Beardsley called the bug “super dangerous,” noting that it was “totally a drive by,” meaning that attackers could compromise a Mac, or other personal computers, simply by duping users into browsing to a malicious or previously-hacked website that hosts the attack code.

The unpatched bug can even be found on Mountain Lion, Apple’s latest operating system released, but Apple stopped bundling Java in 2011 when it began shipping Lion. For users on Lion and Mountain Lion, who have Java installed, the operating system asks them if they would like Java to run. So, most should be in the clear. The situation is particularly dangerous for Snow Leopard and Leopard users, because they do not have the same safety parameters.

In April 2011, a similar situation arose. The exploit, dubbed “Flashback”, infected over 100,000 machines until Apple patched it in a software update and removal tool.

The best piece of advice: Uninstall Java and stay away from websites that look suspicious. Running OS X without Java is sounding better all the time.
