OG AppleTV Gets the Shaft

OG AppleTV Gets the Shaft
When the new AppleTV was announced, I was pretty excited – obviously – but then I started to wonder about what this meant for my original AppleTV that was housed in the living room. The UI looks the same on the new version with just a few changes, so wouldn’t it make sense that there Read more…

FaceTime on the iPod Touch

FaceTime on the iPod Touch
If you had asked me two months ago what three things I could count on to be 100% reliable, I would’ve said death, taxes, and the iPod Touch is going to get FaceTime. Apple has been making a big push for the technology to take off since the iPhone 4 came out this summer, and Read more…

Get Tricky with the @Rest iPad Stand
The other day, a friend of mine linked me to site that’s run by a local company (well, local for me, anyways), that makes really cool desks made in the Apple aesthetic. In fact they’re so cool, I may just post about them later this week. While I was perusing the site, I found out Read more…

I’m one of the few people out there who own an AppleTV. I bought it originally because I wanted to find a way to get my movies from iTunes onto my TV without purchasing a Mac Mini. Does it work? Sure, but it’s a bit finicky at times. Up until today, I was pretty sure Read more…

Apple Gazette Reviews: Plants Vs Zombies

Apple Gazette Reviews: Plants Vs Zombies
My wife has a problem. A few years back, she was all about PopCap games online. She’d play them for hours, and things would just get left on the wayside. She ended up giving up cold turkey one day, and things have never been better. Then I bought Plants Vs. Zombies for my iPhone [iTunes Read more…

AutoCad Coming to Mac

AutoCad Coming to Mac
My wife and I both enjoy Apple products, but I’ve been more into them than her for a little while now. That’s mostly because of her work as a kitchen designer, which requires her to use AutoCad and other Windows-only products. If it weren’t for that, she’d probably switch over to a Mac tomorrow. Strangely Read more…

Apple Gazette Reviews: OmniFocus for Mac

Apple Gazette Reviews: OmniFocus for Mac
I’ve always been one of those guys who looks really organized, but gets panicked under pressure if things aren’t setup just right. I like knowing what I need to do, how I need to accomplish it, and what’s coming up next. I’ve spent some time learning the GTD system, but up until recently, I’ve had Read more…
