Netflix Instant Watching Review

Jason Snell of Mac World reviews the Netflix Instant Watching service for Intel Macs.
As pointed out by the article the service isn’t available to all Netflix users yet. They’re slowly rolling it out. Since I’m both not a Netflix customer and a U.S. resident I can’t try them out for myself. The review gives […]

My iTunes Movie Rentals Experience

Finally I was able to score some credits for my iTunes account. I had 2 cents last week and through some kind friends, I was able to ask them to buy some iTunes Pre-paid cards for me to top of my account. After redeeming my iTunes cards and with $40 ($25 + $15) in my […]

Macs For Less

So let’s have some respite from iPhone news, views and whatnots. You want a new Mac but can’t afford to pay the sticker price or maybe you’re just smart and want to get value for money, either way Apple has provided a way for you to get Macs for less. Enter the Apple refurbished products.

Apple and EMI Launch DRM Free Music

Darn! This always happens to me. This entry is a day late because I was stuck at the hospital without anyway to read and blog about this significant news. Well better late than never.

Greenpeace protests, iPods on the blender

And in other news, the guys from Will It Blend try it out on an old iPod. Out with the old, in with the new they say.
And hey, seeing what’s inside that iPod (did you see the smoke?), maybe the guys from Greenpeace have it all right from the start. All that cadmium and nickel […]

Plaxo eCards versus .Mac iCards

Alright! This is indeed the battle of the century. On the left corner, wearing the signature iPod-white shorts is the .Mac account, a value-added PIM service and backup system exclusive to .Mac members.
On the right corner, we have Plaxo, the world’s most popular PIM synchronizing tool that’s compatible with almost all OS platforms.

Nike CEO Mike Parker had more to say when it came to the iPod integration, “Obviously, a lot of that was already happening … If the shoe and the iPod could talk to each other, […]

Memoirs of AppleCare tech support

My good friend Wins showed this pretty recent journal entry of a well-read tech support dude Adam Knight from Texas. He talks about life inside AppleCare, his four year stint with customer support and most importantly - how he saw … US.

I can’t talk about the ills of AppleCare and support jobs with talking about […]

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?

Addressing Address Book

My country is cell phone crazy.
