There and Mac again: Apple anniversary, iOS in cars and Darth Vader's dustbin

As The Beatles very nearly sang: it was 30 years ago today that Steve Jobs taught the world to play. The original Apple Macintosh is "the computer that kick-started the PC revolution" - and it's celebrating the beginning of its fourth decade. We'd love to take the new Mac Pro back in time to see what Steve Jobs would have made of it.

Instead, we've done the next best thing put it under the microscope ourselves. Apple's most powerful PC combines "stellar" design and "incredible" performance in one unbelievably tiny package, and while it's ridiculously over the top for the average user, "wouldn't you just love one?” Could your next car be Apple-powered? With the imminent release of iOS 7.1 - which will also fix the annoying "white screen of death" - we're seeing more clues about how iOS in the car will look and work. The latest iOS 7.1 screenshots "show iOS 7 looking a lot more like a GPS module than previous incarnations," Marc Chacksfield reports.

Last but not least, the year has barely begun and we're already hearing a whole bunch of iPhone 6 rumours: the latest suggests that Apple has decided to make the iPhone 6's screen a significantly larger 4.8 inches. You might recall that the same number was floated before the iPhone 5S turned up, so this might be one of those rumours that works like a stopped clock and comes true eventually. Analysts also predict a 13-inch iPad. Could the Mac Pro and MacBook Pro soon be joined by an iPad Pro? It might be a good idea to start saving up.

What is the point of SteamOS? I can't think of a single one
I welcome with open arms the latest thrust in PC gaming [writes James Rivington] - SteamOS and the rise of the Steam Machine. Bringing PC gaming into the living room is a super idea in theory. But SteamOS has been hailed in some circles as the saviour of PC gaming and I take issue with that on two counts. Read more

Just the ticket for those looking for a low price way to shed the yoke of subscription TV. This box even doubles as a competent media streamer, and its catch-up is comprehensive.

What should Nintendo do next?
@andreweplotkin Re-release classic systems and games. Build costs surely are down and I would love a factory-new N64. Shocked they aren't on this
@dave_everett Call Wii U the Super Wii, sell it for £180 or £200 with a game and make some adverts for it if you want people to know it exists.
@mabarmby75 I think Nintendo should stop making consoles and stick to handhelds. And put Mario on the PS4.
