    So after todays WWDC 2014 announcements, there was absolutely no new hardware being discussed or released. It was completely a software show. However, on Apples website, if you scroll thru OS X Yosemite and scroll to the cleaner dock section, it displays "retina" looking icons on a MacBook Air. Yes I understand that they want to show the icons in the best fashion,color,style etc but why choose a MacBook Air when the screen doesn't support what they are advertising? Maybe I'm overlooking things but the rumor mill has been spinning this round with a new 12" Retina MacBook Air in the works for 2014. Whats everyone's take on this? Do you care? Not care? Post your overall thoughts below.

    To address the "retina" icons, Apple uses a generic MBA photo and overlays an image of the home screen on top of it. They do this will all of their products, including their mobile lineup. The desktop image they used is probably as large as 4k, but it is no way indicative of the actual screen resolution. They didn't take a picture of a MBA and post it on the web.

    In response to a rMBA being released in 2014, feel free to check out the rumors or some of the many threads already dedicated to the issue. Many forum members seem to be high level Apple employees and share insider information :p.
