Do You Think Using A Mac Is An Acquired Taste?

Do You Think Using A Mac Is An Acquired Taste?
Just this morning when I logged on to Facebook, I saw two (2) people update their statuses (status? statii? sp?), saying that they recently bought a Mac and are having a hard time getting used to them. One specifically said, “Trying not to hate Mac… why oh why did I have to be a PC Read more…

IMPULSIVE REVIEW of Uproarious “AtomicFart” App

IMPULSIVE REVIEW of Uproarious “AtomicFart” App
Three…Two…One…Splat! The sound of a flagellant time-bomb rips through the air in a crowded subway. Almost instantaneously, the entire throng of New Yorkers inside the car leaps aside.

A Mini Server, huh?

A Mini Server, huh?
One of the more interesting notes to yesterday’s Apple announcements is the addition of the new Mini Server, a compact little product that sports two 500 gb drives and Snow Leopard Server, a $499 addition by itself.

In case you didn’t quite get it, notice the sarcasm when I said, ‘Whoop de doo’. It’s like Apple announcements are always TOO hyped up. Honestly. As much as I am an Apple Fan Girl, I can only muster so much enthusiasm about something that’s not so ‘revolutionary’. For this month’s Apple announcement, they released Read more…

Apple Still Cares Without Apple Care… For Now.

I’ve been a Mac user for around 2 years now. Still pretty much a newbie though, compared to the veterans who have been Mac users for over 3 decades or so. Only recently have I been able to fully appreciate being a Mac user because of its Apple Care Protection Plan (APP). Some might disagree Read more…

IMPULSIVE REVIEW of “Chess” Victory

IMPULSIVE REVIEW of “Chess” Victory
The “Chess” App from Optime Software is an outstanding investment for the iPhone. There is a free version of this application, but it times out after a short while, which is quite inhibitive considering chess can be a timely match. For $1.99 the premium version of “Chess” is available, and it is worth every dime. Read more…
