    SAN JOSE, California (AP) -- Apple Computer Inc. said Tuesday it will begin shipping this week the new MacBook Pro, the company's first laptop computer to feature an Intel Corp. microprocessor.

    Apple, which is in the midst of a historic shift to Intel chips, last month introduced its first Intel-based desktop computer, the iMac G5, about six months ahead of schedule.


    iMac G5, huh?

    Ehh, if I wasn't hip to the Apple lingo I'd probably be calling them iMac G5s still. But then again, if they are CNN they need to do their research and get it right. I'd say it isn't that big of a deal though.

    It's a big deal when you consider slips like this are getting through far to often in mainstream media... Fact checking is/was an artform that is no longer truley appreciated...

    I constantly have to correct writers work when it comes to me.. and thats not my job.. they should know the "facts" they're putting in articles...

    There was an AP article about the opening ceremonies for the Olympics this year, where the author described the Ferrari as "fire-engine red".

    FERRARI'S ARE FERRARI RED FFS.
    I wanted to cut her some slack for being female, but no, gender is not an excuse for getting that wrong.

    I saw the same ones. Everytime I see a mistake like this it makes me wonder how much these idiots are getting paid to screw up.
