Apple-shaped mouse

The Japanese have been churning out a lot of tech gear that resemble food lately. So after the Sushi USB drive, we now have a chance to play with the TRUE Apple mouse.

Apple Communities

I’ve been a member of several tech communities for the past five years of blossoming into a geek. Where I’m from, there are segmented communities, ‘user groups’ as we call them for almost all OS plaftorms and handheld types.
But close to my heart is the community that deals with the Macintosh, and all Apple related [...]

Capdase Soft Jacket for iPod shuffle

A funny thing happened on the way home last night. The soft jacket that I’ve had on my iPod shuffle slipped off. Like a thief in the night. Without a sound, without warning.
How tragic. How irresponsible.
I knew it was bound to happen one day. I still remember the day I bought it, about [...]

Mobile 1 Power Plant

Last Friday I had the honor to be chosen as a ribbon-cutter at the formal opening of Mobile1 Rockwell, the newest branch of a popular chain of mobile tech stores in the Philippines. It’s located at the parking level of the Power Plant Mall in Metro Manila, a very unique location since it’s the first [...]

The incredible shrinking boxes

The new iLife and iWork boxes are barely bigger than CD cases. The start of a new trend, Apple seems to be cutting down on packaging. Even the new dotMac subscription retail boxes are about this size. Should this be a problem?
No, practically speaking. Cheaper to manufacture and produce, easier to ship, stock and display, [...]

Power corrupts

Having really not much to do stuck in morning rush hour traffic, I recently had a vigorous discussion with my brother, a Windows user (but the distinction is irrelevant for the subject we were discussing in this case, so I don’t know why I’m even mentioning it at all) and mobile warrior like me, about [...]

Taking care of the duckhead

I’ve recently been enlightened on the art of extending the life of your duckhead. For roughly $10.00, this fantastic piece of equipment reduces the small bulk that comes out of your bag by introducing a small attachment that looks like .. the head of a duck.
However, the duckhead as we know it can be [...]

Addressing Address Book

My country is cell phone crazy.
The telecommunications industry is big business here; cell phones sell like hotcakes, and everyone has one. Democratized pricing, provider subsidy and creative budget service plans enable people from all walks of life and all income brackets (and even those without an income) to own a phone. Having the latest and [...]

Uncle Steve

Breaking News: These days, when you say Apple Mouse, you could mean Mickey himself.
It’s happened. The Pixar-Disney merger should be officially announced by the time you read this. Deal’s done, and all it needs is approval from the board. Pixar becomes an arm of Disney and effectively gets absorbed, but Steve-o gets a seat on [...]

The bag thing

I have an obsession with bags. Computer bags, specifically.
I’m sure a lot of you out there are like me. Come on. Admit it. It seems to be a disease that attacks Macheads more often than other people. Nearly everyone in my User Group has a bag thing. At meetings we check out each other’s gear [...]
