The Problem With Internet in the Middle of Nowhere

Last week I was at camp in the middle of nowhere. We do a ton of multimedia things with the kids, which I was dying to tell you about. Some thunder and lightening later, and my plans and free time changed and my internet went bye-bye. So stay tuned for some great tips and tricks [...]

Why I Love My Mac

I remember the day my first Mac arrived in the mail (there is actually a long story that goes with that day). I will never forget it. But once I got past the basic how-to’s and got it set up, open, and running, it was still just email, calendar, internet and address book. It was [...]

$600 For A Prepaid iPhone

That’s what this report from Appleinsider says. For those in markets/territories where the iPhone will be available through prepaid plans, the handset will cost somewhere around $600. That’s quite a hefty amount for a phone but given the iPhone’s features, this sounds about right.

5 Billion and Counting

Yep, that’s how much songs have been sold through iTunes. It’s changed the way we buy and listen to music. At least I know it has for me. This is according to a recent report at MarketWatch.

New Australian Apple Store

So now I’m jealous. I know a lot of people don’t have Apple stores at all, but as I’ve read about the details of the new Australian Apple Store, I realized that all the stores here in Florida are little Mall stores, whereas, it seems, that a lot of the other Apple Stores around the [...]

Great New Mac vs. PC Ad

I stumbled across this great Mac vs. PC ad yesterday while setting up my new computer (no, not a new mac, but a new PC for work and yes, I "downgraded" to XP). I just found it on YouTube as a video, but the original ad was just a scrolling ad at the top with [...]

Office to iWork and the Other Way Around

iWork is fast becoming popular in the Mac circles while Office is the standard when it comes to documents, spreadsheets and presentations. What happens when you want to share an iWork file with someone who uses Office or vice-versa?
Well there are compatibility issues. It’s not to say that you can’t move files to and [...]

Firefox Download Day

I have been using Firefox since version 0.7. I have used it on several versions of Windows. I have used it on Fedora (linux). And, of course, I have used it on my Mac.
When I first bought my Mac I was determined to love Safari. After all, I was an Apple fan now and [...]
