My MacBook Impression

Sure there have been many reviews that have been written about the new aluminum MacBooks, I’ve read a lot of them. Until you’ve actually used one, the words you read don’t really do justice. That being said, I’d like to toss in my 2 cents.
I was able to get my hands albeit briefly on […]

What’s Your Switch Story?

Inspired by this recent post at TUAW. I’d like to share my own “switcher” story.
I purchased my first Mac on June 2004. It was a 1.5 Ghz 15″ Powerbook. I’ve been wanting to switch to a Mac since I saw the Powerbook G3 of a former office mate. At first I fell in love with […]

What Are You Looking For In The Next MacBooks/MacBook Pros

With a little over a day till Apple updates its notebook line, the question I’m asking myself is what do I really want in the next generation of Apple’s portables. Features that would really make me think about upgrading from my current 17″ MacBook Pro.
I’ve been thinking of selling my current MacBook Pro and going […]

Apple’s Rumored Oct 14 Event A No Show?

Having read AppleInsider’s article regarding the possibility that Apple’s event might not push through, I tend to agree. If Apple’s rumored event on the 14th is pushing through we should have seen invites by now.
The Oct 14th event was rumored to be the launch pad for the new MacBooks and MacBook Pros. These are […]

Will Apple Be Ok With Out Steve Jobs?

This blog entry from Seeking Alpha seems to think so. I for one am still on the fence. However the post makes a lot of sense.
With Steve Job’s health always at the back of the minds of investors and Apple lovers all over, it’s hard not to worry about Apple’s future. Jobs maybe the […]

$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.
This price range is somewhat near the prepaid handset price that this […]

Is Mobile Me For Me?

So I’ve been giving Mobile Me a lot of thought lately. I wasn’t really sold with .Mac before. I mean it was a good service just not worth the $99 per year. There were free solutions after all. However having seen the demo at the WWDC keynote and the guided tour over at the Apple […]

My Thoughts On The WWDC 2008 Keynote

First, pardon me if this is a couple of days late. I spent two days at the hospital and wasn’t able to watch the keynote live. I downloaded it via iTunes today and watched it. Chris posted his own recap of WWDC 2008 Keynote and now I’m posting mine.
To sum it all up in […]
