My favorite sign

The Apple Store is updating. Two minutes to go. You guys are probably holding a vigil like me. I’m as jittery as a bedbug. Geez, the anticipation is killing me…

The Before Mac

If you want to split hairs, no, of course it isn’t a Mac. But before the Macintosh, there was the Apple II, the original Personal Computer. It was one of the precursors, and most likely the first Apple product people ever came across on a mainstream level. Certainly it was my first Apple product - [...]

The Apple Style

I don’t know if there really is a definable, quantifiable “style” that Apple can call its own outside of its hardware/software output, but nowhere is it more apparent when Steve Jobs makes a keynote presentation at an annual Macworld conference, and by the same extension, all of Apple’s staff worldwide when they make a presentation [...]

iTunes 1 Billion!

So Alex Ostrovsky wins an iMac, a $10,000 iTunes music card and … 10 iPods (5 black, 5 white). Howeee crap. What will Alex do with 10 iPods? Well, he will sell all of them at a discounted rate to buy a new MacBook Pro.
At least that’s what I would have done if I was [...]

My Mac Desktop

I’d just like to show everyone how my Mac desktop at the office looks like:

No shortage of uses for that Apple logo. It does look like the top of a Powerbook, doesn’t it?

Old PowerPC Magic

I was at a presscon last week, purpose of which was to demo the new iLife and iWork ‘06 to the public. But deeper than that was the demo of the software on the new Intel-based Macs.
I’ll give it to Apple - they made the migration from PowerPC to Intel almost seamless. But.

1GB iPod nano

Or the death of ‘less is more.’
Yesterday my iPod shuffle broke. After trying to mount it on my ‘book the light faded, and the device failed to be recognized. It didn’t want to turn on. So no music for me yesterday. How sad.
Ugh. They said the year of the dog would be a tragic one.
That [...]

Touch Screen Apple Patents

The new multi-touch screen patent that is on the works looks like a viable stepping stone to the next generation of Apple products. A touch screen iPod, and a tablet MacBook could be the next “just one more things” that may come our way.
For the touch screens, you can use two hands to control the [...]

Calcu-google? Google-ator?

Sometimes we get so wrapped up in something’s main function that we forget it can do other things. So I’m going out on a limb here and get all excited about something that everyone might already know about, but did you know Google is a calculator as well?
Accidents can be good things sometimes. I was [...]

Chip (in) your shoulder

Ever wished for that bluetooth headset for your iPod? Well, some people are doing some research that can go one better than just bluetooth. Pretty soon you can go truly wireless, and I don’t mean just your gear - I mean you yourself.
At a presentation entitled Silicon in Biology at the International Solid State Circuits [...]
