Randy Newman’s Macworld 2008 Performance – Brilliant or Crazy?

Stevenotes are often noted by a musical guest or performer. Typically they sing a song and that’s it. Macworld 2008 was a little different.

The Macbook Air is growing on me – what about you?

What is so hard about making a webcam for Mac?

Forrest Research, who seem to be riding that “Apple headline high” that most of these research groups go through from time to time, is back again telling us all how much of a failure the AppleTV is.

Forrester Research firm analyst James McQuivey thinks that Apple is on the losing end of the NBC/Apple troubles, and that they need NBC back – FAST. “Don’t let the Macgeeks posting angry blogs against NBC fool you,” McQuivey’s report reads, “The loser here is Apple, which relies on NBC Universal to deliver 30 [percent] of Read more…
