Everyone knows that listening to podcasts is one of the most computationally complicated tasks you can possibly do.

Apple’s future notebooks could be even thinner as Intel works to “significantly” reduce the power consumption of its future Ivy Bridge processors. The company’s existing chips â€” like those installed in today’s MacBook Air â€” are rated at 17 watts, but sources say the new version will be well below this.
