iMessages for the Rest of Us

My Dearest Apple, It saddened me greatly to receive your email today regarding the ending of the Messages beta program for Mac OS X Lion. Even though the app is technically in beta, it has been very stable and has been a pleasure to use. Unfortunately, my MacBook is the 2008 model that you decided […]

Who Has An Apple Household?

Last week, one of my Facebook friends asked if it made sense to share one Apple ID between he and his wife so they did not have to buy their apps twice on each of their iPhones. The short answer here is yes, but does it really make sense in a world where individuals personalize […]

Thanks Steve!

Steve Jobs and Apple have had an enormous impact on my life and the lives of most of the people I know and love. Steve’s passing leaves a massive hole in the world of technology and in many of our lives. Many of us feel like we had a personal connection with him because he […]

So, Did I Switch to MobileMe?

Well, dear readers, I promised to get back to you and let you know if I ever made the switch from Google Gmail and Google Calendar to the MobileMe suite, and now that it’s been a year, I figure I better let you know what happened. Well, this is pretty simple folks. MobileMe has done […]

Why I Can’t Wait to Get My Hands on iLife ’09

On Tuesday, Apple announced the next version of their iLife suite. I have been using iLife since the very first version and have faithfully upgraded with the availability of each new version. While each version has had its own nice new enhancements, I am drawn to this newest iteration more than its predecessors. What is […]

Taking Over the iPhone

So, I managed to talk my wife into letting me take her iPhone with me to the kids’ swimming lessons. I thought I would try out the WordPress app to see how well it works. I have to say that it is very impressive. What is even more impressive is the iPhone’s spelling checker. I […]

Will MobileMe Make Me Leave Google’s Gmail and Calendar?

Since Steve Jobs’ keynote at the WWDC in June, I have been waiting patiently (well, quite impatiently) for the new and improved .Mac which has been rebranded as MobileMe. Based on the keynote and guided tour, MobileMe finally looks like the mail, address book, and calendar applications I expected from Apple when they launch iTools […]

The Better Sub Notebook

A while back, Â I wrote Notes on the MacBook Air. Â I recently got my hands on the better sub notebook. First and foremost, I’m a huge Mac fan. Â I’ve loved Apple products for as long as I can remember. I am, however, somewhat disappointed by the MacBook Air now that I’ve gotten […]

Notes on the MacBook Air

I can see there being a market for the MacBook Air – not a market I fit into, but a market nonetheless. When catching the first glimpse of the Air, it really is quite stunning. The size alone is enough to make you think aloud: how’d they fit a computer in there?!? While the computer […]
