This week in Apple: from the MacBook Air update to custom vinyl decals

Love it or loathe it, if you work in the creative world you can't ignore Apple (opens in new tab). And there are no greater experts on what's happening in the world of Cupertino than our friends at MacFormat (opens in new tab) magazine.

In their video series Weekly Apple Extravaganza, the team bring you all the latest news, announcements and gossip from the Apple world, and apply their deep-founded knowledge and analytical insights to reveal what's really going on behind the headlines.

In the latest episode above, Chris Phin and Matthew Bolton discuss:

  • The latest update to the MacBook Air, and why it's come at such an odd time.
  • A radical proposal from the CEO of Dreamworks to release movies online before they're shown in cinemas, and to start charging 'per inch' of the screen you're watching on.
  • How to add a custom vinyl decal to a MacBook Pro using a radical 'printer' which cuts designs out of almost any material.
