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…

Apple Announces New iMacs, MacBooks, Minis, Magic Mouse… Whoop De Doo.

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…

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.

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…

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…

Go Update Your iPhone OS To OS 3.1.2 Now!
Fresh from the Apple factory, the iPhone OS 3.1.2 software update is out! This update will address several annoying issues that OS 3.1 brought upon iPhone users.

AT&T Allows VOIP Over 3G For iPhone!

AT&T Allows VOIP Over 3G For iPhone!
A miracle has happened! AT&T has announced yesterday, October 6, 2009, that they will be allowing VOIP applications on the iPhone. Soon enough, iPhone users will be able to make calls using VOIP over the AT&T 3G network using their iPhones. That really took me by surprise as most telecom companies consider VOIP as the Read more…

I’m a little late on the news but for those who aren’t aware, Research In Motion (RIM) has recently developed and released a BlackBerry Desktop made specifically for Mac Users last Friday, October 2. It’s about time. iSync is good, but there’s only so much you can do with a sync manager that isn’t specially Read more…
