Here are five things in technology that happened this past week and how they affect your business. Did you miss them?
1 — Apple dropped the price on several expensive Mac upgrades.
This week, Apple lowered the cost of SSD (Solid State Drive) upgrades for the MacBook Air, MacBook Pro, and Mac mini—as well as the 2013 Mac Pro RAM. Users can now upgrade the base model MacBook Air to the 1.5TB SSD for $1,100, which is $100 less than before. For the MacBook Air with 256GB, upgrading to the 1.5TB SSD will also cost $100 less, or $900 total. Upgrading the base Mac mini to 2TB will cost $1,400, which is $200 less than previously listed.

Why this is important for your business:
These aren’t the state of the art Mac models, but they’re pretty darn good. If your company is invested in Mac products then this is your opportunity save some money. You’re welcome.
2 — Instagram tests ways to let you buy products directly on the app.
On Tuesday, Facebook-owned Instagram said it’s testing a feature called checkout that will allow users to purchase products without leaving the app. Now, Instagram users won’t have to go through the extra step of visiting a brand’s website and entering payment information. Instagram is testing the feature in the US, and users can buy products from more than 20 brands including Adidas, H&M, Zara, Warby Parker, Revolve, Uniqlo and MAC Cosmetics. (Source: CNET)
