Let the Siri App Become your Personal Assistant
Find me a taxi ASAP. Then get me reservations to a Malaysian restaurant in Manhattan…and make it close to my current locale at MSG. Done. With the “Siri Assistant” application, that is free for the iPhone 3GS, your wish is the Siri genie’s command. The “Siri Assistant” is exactly what it is advertised as…a remarkable Read more…

Theories: Steam Coming to Mac?

Theories: Steam Coming to Mac?
I’m a pretty big video game guy, but I’m more focused on consoles than the computer. That’s mostly because since I switched to an all-Mac household, I haven’t been able to find any decent games worth spending money on, with the possible exception of The Sims 3. Truthfully though, I’ve never really been into the Read more…

40 Billion Reasons to Think Apple Is Doing OK

40 Billion Reasons to Think Apple Is Doing OK
Apple held their annual shareholder’s meeting yesterday, and as usual, some interesting things came out of the call. First, Apple’s opening up 25 stores in China soon.

Except now it hasn’t. MobileCrunch has both sides of this drama, and Read more…

Me.com Updated for Mobile Safari
MobileMe is a lot like my Uncle Norman. I never see or think about him, until that one time of year when he sends me a birthday card, or someone opens up a scrap book from when I was three and there’s a picture of him right next to that one of me with diaper Read more…

OSX Tools for Video Podcasting

OSX Tools for Video Podcasting
I create video tutorials on a regular basis for Tubetorial, and do it all on my Macbook. When I first got started, I used my PC and the excellent Camtasia, but since I’m so much more productive on my Mac, I thought I would give it a try one day- and I never looked back. Read more…

Apple Hits 10 Billion iTunes Downloads: I Plan My Shopping List
Well, you may not have heard, but iTunes just hit 10 billion songs downloaded. Actually, you probably did hear, because I mentioned it last week. You also know then that Apple is giving away a $10,000 iTunes gift card to anyone who’s bought a song from the service in the past few days. Of course Read more…
