Apple Rumored to be Starting News Subscription Service
As some loyal readers may remember, writing for Apple Gazette is not my only gig. I’m also the editor of a magazine which is going national this month. It’s a lot of pressure, but as is to be expected, I’ve been making a big push to get an iPad app for the book, and now Read more…

Jorno Bluetooth Keyboard Up for Preorder

Jorno Bluetooth Keyboard Up for Preorder
One of the nice things about the iPad – and now the iPhone with iOS 4 – is the ability to use a Bluetooth keyboard. Fortunately enough, Apple has a handy-dandy one that isn’t too big, but it’s still large enough that it’s not always convenient to haul around with you wherever you go, particularly Read more…

Mount Your Mini Under Your Desk

Mount Your Mini Under Your Desk
I get inspired when I see people modifying their workspaces to better accomodate their needs. For me, desk space is pretty critical. I’ve considered making some kind of under-desk dock for my MacBook and running a single large monitor instead of the dual setup I have going now, but I just haven’t made up my Read more…

The Best iPad Case Ever

The Best iPad Case Ever
One of my greatest childhood frustrations was the Etch a Sketch. No matter how hard I tried, I never was able to create a cool design or picture with the thing, and it drove me nuts. Eventually, I hucked it across the room in frustration and stormed off. Inevitably, a week or so later I’d Read more…

iPod Upgrading on the Cheap

iPod Upgrading on the Cheap
[image via Unplggd] I’m not a huge fan of the new iPod lineup. The iPod Touch is nice, but it doesn’t have enough capacity for me. Granted, there aren’t any iPods that can hold my 230GB iTunes library, but if we’re talking about just music, I’m only at 36GB or so, which my ancient iPod Read more…

Get Woody with your Keyboard

Get Woody with your Keyboard
My Dad is a woodworker. Not by trade, more by hobby, but it’s definitely something that he enjoys doing. The first time I saw this setup, I knew that it was something my father would love to do himself if he had thought of it. So here’s the deets: It’s a wooden tray designed to Read more…

The SSD Dillemma

The SSD Dillemma
I’ve got a bad case of “Ineedanewcomputeritis,” and it’s driving me nuts. A few months back, I upgraded the internal hard drive on my 15-inch MBP with a 500GB, 7200 RPM model, and I was pretty happy. But as things tend to go, as time went on, my hard drive got fuller and fuller until Read more…

27-inch LED Cinema Display Available Now

27-inch LED Cinema Display Available Now
After quite a bit of waiting, the new 27-inch LED Cinema Display is available now for purchase at the Apple Store online, and it’s shipping in 1-2 weeks. So what’s the big deal? First off, the monitor itself is pretty amazing. 2560X1440 resolution and a 16:9 aspect ratio isn’t too bad. Then combine the LED Read more…

What Apple Needs for the Next iPad

What Apple Needs for the Next iPad
With iOS 4.2, the iPad is finally catching up with the iPhone. Multitasking, printing, AirPlay and more are coming in just a few short weeks, but with it, there’s still the feeling that the iPad could do so much more. We all know that the iPad is going to get a version 2.0 in the Read more…

20 Minutes with iOS 4.2 on the iPad

20 Minutes with iOS 4.2 on the iPad
I’ve got a friend of mine who is an iOS developer, and today he came by my place to rub iOS 4.2 in my face. What a jerk. But since I had it all in front of me, I figured that I might as well give the thing a shot and see how it all Read more…
