HD Content Coming To The iTunes Store

Let me preface that this is pure speculation. I haven’t read, yet, that this is actually true. BUT…

Keyboard Shortcuts Are Making My Day Better

I absolutely love keyboard shortcuts. The quicker I can get to something without navigating a menu tree, the better. Recently I discovered a few keyboard shortcuts that are making my life simpler and my day better.

Do You Want A Wacom Tablet?

I have finally found a drawing tablet I actually want and Snapvillage is giving one away.

The Cintiq 21UX interactive pen display provides the best-of-class pen experience for working directly on the screen. It combines the advantages of a large-format LCD monitor with the control, comfort, and productivity of Wacom’s most sophisticated patented cordless, battery-free pen […]

So I decided […]

Tritton SEE2 Xtreme Is Mac Compatable

Speed Test for Your iPhone

So the big selling point of the new iPhone 3G has been speed. “Twice as fast for half the cost”. But like all internet connections, the promised speed and your actual speed on any given day are probably not quite the same. On most days, my home internet connection runs at about 75% of promised […]

Dropbox is File Back Up and Cross Platform Sharing, without the hassles

New Windows Marketing Campaign

So today I accidentally stumbled across the new Windows marketing campaign. If you haven’t seen it, check out “The Mojave Experiment”. The gist of the campaign is that Microsoft disguised Windows Vista and told random people that it was the new Windows OS, code named Mojave. After a brief demo and rave reviews, they revealed […]
