Not much activity eh ;)

Went through a re-structure, got a new job (same company) then got a better job (same company still but keeping me busy doing stuff I love doing).

The MacBook/keyboard combo sits on a shelf behind me. I powered it up a short while to make sure it still works...and it does. Still have a couple of replacement parts that I bought to replace some busted parts (keyboard membrane) but honestly haven't had the time to look at it. In the meantime Apple released the 2010 MacBook Airs (one of which i have) and now the 2011 MacBook Air, either of which would be a batter candidate than the Gen A Air guts I'm using at the moment.

We'll see what happens ;)

Don't say anything.....but the dude that wanted the Air back hasn't asked for it since I last posted

Keep it to yerself.

Ahem.....anyway.....ah.....nothing to see here.....

MacBook Air Project may be no more :(

It seems that the guy that gave me the busted laptop may not have had full rights to do so. It was written off because of the damage but he is leaving a project and it's the project that owns the laptop, not him, and they want to know what happened to it.

In the back of my head I wondered if this would ever happen, and with that in mind I kept all the relevant bits and pieces. If need be, it can be re-constructed into it's original damaged state (sounds weird I know) but at the moment it sounds like a box of parts will suffice as the actual damaged bit (the screen) hasn't been touched other than being removed from the rest of the unit.

Here's hoping they take a look at it, and agree to let me keep it after assessing the damage. If not, then I'll just have to wait until my 11" MacBook Air kicks the bucket in some fashion and make another one out of that.

New Toy

Got myself a new 11" MacBook Air (base model)

No, I won't be pulling this one apart (not just yet...give me a couple of years until it's next to worthless residual value), but I will be testing the performance between this and the air/keyboard project.

As amazed as I was with the original, this one is even better. About as close to a netbook Apple is going to give us I think. :)

New MAcBook Air's

So, we got some new MacBook Air's finally :)

What does this mean for hacking I wonder? Hopefully it means some cheap second hand RevB Air's come on the market but the more interesting thing is the new 11" form factor, integrated SSD's and external ports that aren't on a flip out door would make for an awesome Mac keyboard mod.

Anyway, unless someone wants to buy me one, it won't be happening soon.

New designs for the Mac keyboard case will be up shortly.
