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…

IMPULSIVE REVIEW of “Trapster” Application

IMPULSIVE REVIEW of “Trapster” Application
“There is a police checkpoint up ahead, baby!” shouts the voice of Austin Powers. The free App “Trapster” turns any iPhone into a GPS police locater.

My Thoughts: Apple’s Conflicting Stand On Piracy

My Thoughts: Apple's Conflicting Stand On Piracy
I find it really ironic that Apple is doing everything in their power to make the iPhone un-jailbreakable. Just recently, Apple has updated the bootrom (iBoot-359.3.2) on the iPhone 3Gs units that shipped in the past week. While this won’t fully stop the jailbreaking community from creating a new jailbreak update, it will however make Read more…

Justifying the High Cost for Software

As you may have guessed from some of my other posts, I run my own business. I’m a writer/photographer based in the Phoenix area, and a few years ago, I made the conscious decision to switch over to a fully Mac system. It was difficult at first, but one of the things that helped me Read more…

The Case for Dual Monitors

The Case for Dual Monitors
A few months ago, my boss at the time walked up to my desk and said, “Kevin, how would you like to have a second monitor? Wouldn’t it be easier to work with more space?” A few days later, I was rocking a 17-inch iMac with a 24-inch flatscreen, and I never wanted to go Read more…

Why Mac Users Should REALLY Invest In Apple Care…

Why Mac Users Should REALLY Invest In Apple Care...
Here’s a simple equation why Mac Users should REALLY invest in the Apple Care Protection Plan. I sent my MacBook Pro (late 2007 model) to an Apple Service Provider for ALL those said repairs and I did not pay a single cent. Nada. The only inconvenience I felt was the 3-weeks laptop-less period that made Read more…

The Sonos "ZonePlayer S5" Lays Claim to Revolutionizing Home Audio
Sonos has just announced the upcoming release of the Sonos “ZonePlayer S5,” an all-in-one wireless music system that functions with the iPhone via a free “Sonos Controller” App. Could this revolutionize the way we listen to music? The “S5,” due out in late October, transcends the idea of the traditional iPod (or iPhone) “dock” as Read more…

How Mail NEEDS to be Improved

How Mail NEEDS to be Improved
Apple’s Mail program has been the same essentially for years. And even with the Exchange support added with Snow Leopard, the company’s main e-mail program really is lacking in features. Power e-mailers have turned to other options and as a result, the program sits in the dock, lonely and unused. So how does Apple fix Read more…

Sony Offers Extended Service Plans. Should Apple Be Scared?

I stumbled upon the Sony Styles website just the other day when I saw the news about their release of the Sony Vaio X. The first glimpse of the Sony Vaio X made me think of Apple’s MacBook Air. Similarly sleek and thin design and an awfully similar keyboard design! In fact, there’s an image Read more…
