Hmm… What Other Things Can My iPod Do?

What do subway maps, dictionaries, finding a date, a personal trainer and doom have in common? The iPod. I stumbled on a great article at Sci Fi Tech about creative uses for the iPod. Bored with just listening to audio or watching videos with your iPod? Why not these creative uses.

MacBook Pro: The Art of Woes

So today Juan asked me if I’d already seen his post on the new 17 inch MacBook Pro.
I told him “No I haven’t and I really don’t want to know anymore because it will just give me a depression attack.”
How much is this thing? $2,800.00??

Daring Fireball’s Initiative

John Gruber of Daring Fireball has decided to call it quits. No, he’s not quitting Daring Fireball. Instead he quit his day job to focus on Daring Fireball full time. This move takes guts. A lot of guts. If someone can do it, I think he can. It would be nice to see him succeed. [...]

As Heard On American Idol

If you’re one of the people who happens to be an American Idol fan then you’d be happy to know that Apple made it easier to listen to the songs that were sung on American Idol. Wait!!!! Hold on… The songs found in iTunes are not the ones actually performed by the contestants, instead they’re [...]

Apple is building a new campus

Yep that’s right, Apple is building a new campus in Cupertino.

Xyle Scope: CSS X-Ray Vision

AppleJack: Troubleshooting for Mac OS X

I have to thank Elbert, PhilMUG’s current chairman for the heads up. He posted about a must read article at MacFixIt, written by Dan Frakes. This is a good read for all those people who’ve experienced trouble with the Mac OS X. Reliable as the Mac OS X might seem, things do go wrong. So [...]

TextMate: The Mac’s Missing Editor

I just forked out 39 pounds or 49 U.S. dollars for TextMate today. I must say that with my measly income, it takes a lot for me to shell out money for software. I mostly go for the free stuff. However, TextMate made an impression with me. After finishing the 30 day trial period given [...]
