New MacBook Airs Coming Next Week, Not This Week

Still waiting for the MacBook Air refresh? You can put your credit card down for a bit. Although many speculated it would, Apple didn’t bring the new machines to market today. And it’s not going to do so tomorrow, either.

Several sources indicate that the company plans to uncrate the eagerly anticipated updates to its MacBook Air line late next week. “The rumor sites are off by a week,” one source said.

So, look for an announcement Thursday or Friday, with the new hardware spec’ing out pretty much the way reports in AppleInsider and elsewhere have described: New Sandy Bridge processors from Intel, support for Apple’s new high-speed Thunderbolt port, backlit keyboards and a winnowing down of configuration options to 128GB and 256GB of flash storage.

Just as the atom bomb was the weapon that was supposed to render war obsolete, the Internet seems like capitalism’s ultimate feat of self-destructive genius, an economic doomsday device rendering it impossible for anyone to ever make a profit off anything again. It’s especially hopeless for those whose work is easily digitized and accessed free of charge.
