Does OS X NEED to be a hardcore gaming Platform?

Earlier today I wrote about the whole Bungie situation that happened over the weekend. There was also another video game related Apple article that made the rounds this weekend. It stated that Apple didn’t want to pay Valve $1 million dollars to port Half-Life to the Mac. There is an interesting discussion on Digg (as Read more…

Why do we (Apple Users) NEED the Zune so bad?

It’s rumored that the new Zune may launch today. Who cares? Well…we do, for some reason. If you go looking around the Apple blog-o-sphere, you’ll see Zune related posts on every single blog. Now, I know you’re going to say it’s because the Zune is a rival MP3 Player and is, thus, worth covering. But Read more…

Are we ever going to go back to talking about the Mac?

As I look over the last few months worth of posts – I am astounded by the number of iPhone related articles. There’s good reason for that of course. The iPhone is all we’ve had that’s worth talking about. The new iMac is great and all – but what does it look like? An iPhone. Read more…

So…that whole “bricking” thing didn’t last long…

This weekend, Gizmodo had several posts on how to unbrick your iPhone. This coming less than 48 hours after they threw a hissy fit and decided to tell the world not to buy the iPhone because of the fact that Apple plugged up the installer.app hole.

5 Things that SHOULD have been in the iPhone 1.1.1 Update

Do you care about the idea of an “iCar”?

So, I’ve been kind of ignoring this whole iCar business, primarily out of a lack of interest on my part. However, after reading about it again today, I though that I better at least bring it up here. I have to say that I don’t really see what the big deal about this is. If Read more…

Opinion: Is the iPod Touch a Mistake?

Now wait…put the torches down, and just listen to me for a second here…. I’ve been thinking about the iPod Touch recently, explaining it to people (as I often find myself doing in regards to Apple products), and I’m beginning to think this thing is a mistake. Now, I don’t mean the idea of a Read more…

Are there TOO many iPod Choices?

I’ve been thinking about since the Special Event last week, and I can’t seem to shake the feeling that there are just too many iPods out there to choose from. When the line was just iPods, Nanos, and Shuffles it was easier. There was still a lot of choice, but those choices were very clear. Read more…

Euro .Mac Users – Is your .Mac Service running slow?

MacNN is reporting that European .Mac users are noticing a crippling of downloads from iWeb websites as well as images from the .Mac Web Galleries. Being in the US, I can’t test it for myself, but I can say that I’m not seeing that kind of problem here. I know we have a large Euro Read more…
