FaceTime from my Mac

Purchased the $0.99 FaceTime HD app from the Mac App Store. Hard to believe that they are charging $0.99 for an app that is restricted to Apple-only products. Oh well, it was only $0.99. Called my daughter. Grabbed some screenshots. Now if only I could use my Mac full time again, I’d be able to […]

Antenna-Aid: Why can’t I think of this?

Another Apple accessory hit. This time at the expense of Antenna-gate. A couple of designers from NYC decided to play a prank and create some little Band-Aids to go over that spot on the iPhone 4 that is causing all the stir. The cranked out a little custom fit Band-Aid looking thing that hides the […]

Next 90 days of SmartPhone sales: 52% iPhone

Remember the Palm Treo? It was hot stuff in it’s day. Where is it now? In the draw with all those old devices that you keep around just because you loved them in their time. This ChangeWave Research survey must have RIM’s management and the board of directors pacing the floor and running scared for […]

Mac users are …

I love reading these research reports that classify and organize Mac vs. PC users. Of course there is a lot of bogus stuff collected and reported as gospel. But then again, you can always collect information that presents “facts” in a particular light. This new report, highlighted on–as you might expect–9to5Mac.com, caught my eye “Analysing […]

I like this PC and Mac commercial

Windows 7 is far away better than XP. I’ve used the beta, RC, and the RTM version since January 2009. It’s starts up fast, goes to sleep fast, and appears pretty solid on the hibernate. My apps have run just fine. I’m moving my one Windows machine to the shipping version of Windows 7. Even […]

Michael Arrington: “Nokia and Symbian are Irrelevant”

I’m glad to know that others agree with my point on other mobile device and OSes. I’ve owned all the brands of smart phones, Nokia included. For me, the AppStore and ability to attract developers make Apple the game changer. From Forbes Magazine: Eventually the iPhone bigots will get to you, as they did to […]

Apple’s Swamped: Picture’s worth a 1,000 words

My One-on-One membership is quickly coming to a close. It’s time to try to get in some training on DVD production in Final Cut Studio. Went to the Concierge to book a session at the Apple Store at The Gateway in Salt Lake City. This is what I see when I try to register. 🙁 […]

“The phone of the future will be differentiated by software.”

As I wrote a month ago, the Apple AppStore for iPhone was a game changer. Remember, this is the report for the FIRST 30 DAYS since the iPhone 3G launched. Below are a couple of quotes and the news from Mr. Jobs as reported in The Wall Street Journal. In the month since Apple opened […]

Will the Halo Effect Bring Apple Support Nightmares?

The halo effect is kicking in. Maybe a bit bigger than some would have ever imagined. Apple’s computers are gaining popularity and are being sold a record levels.
