Twelve South BackPack 2

  • August 9th, 2012

As usual Twelve South delivers with their new BackPack 2. I’ve been a long time fan of their BookArc vertical notebook stands. I don’t have any experience with any of their “soft” goods like the BookBook or SurfacePad, but Twelve South’s ability to execute a small idea with precision engineering and attention to detail is […]

Agree or disagree? Time for an App Store reset?

  • May 1st, 2012

I chanced upon a blog post titled It’s Time for an App Store Reset. While not at all fair for some apps, the idea of having a view of the App Store minus minus the stale, old and broken sounds appealing. I would appreciate a purifying rain to cleanse the App Store of cruft. If […]

iTunes movie purchases can not be re-downloaded

  • January 20th, 2012

Ok, I admit up front that this is more of an [informational] rant regarding the iTunes Store. In addition to iPhone / iPad apps, I purchase music, television and movies. I rented a movie once but was disappointed by the asinine expiration rules of digital rentals. After hitting play I have 24 hours to finish […]

iPhone 4S

  • October 18th, 2011

Last week I preordered the iPhone 4S (along with over 4 million others). One 16GB for Syl and a 32GB for myself – both in white. The processor bump and Siri is pure awesomeness. Period. I can honestly say that any experience I had with [the previous] iPhone 4 Voice Commands were purely accidental. Comparing […]

Post SSD install, the MacBook [Pro] Air not-so-thin

  • April 1st, 2011

A couple of days ago I said I would share my thought post install. After swapping the factory installed Hitachi 7200 RPM hard drive with an OWC Mercury Extreme Pro SSD, all I can say is wow. The overall improvement was immediately apparent after the startup Apple logo appeared then quickly disappeared moments before the […]

Small OWC upgrade, new notebook tomorrow

  • March 29th, 2011

I’m still sitting at work checking off work tasks but I can not wait to get home. Delivery Status just confirmed delivery of my soon to be installed OWC Mercury Extreme Pro SSD. The peppy little SSD should transform my MacBook Pro into an entirely new notebook – right? After a short period with the […]

iPad 2: The usual “thinner, faster, lighter”

  • March 2nd, 2011

Did you hear? The new iPad was announced as the iPad 2. Thinner, faster and lighter. Dual core A5 chip, better graphics (for videos & gaming) and the same great battery life. Oh, and one other surprise(?) front and rear facing cameras. You know, so you can get your Facetime, Skype or Fringe on. Black […]

11″ MacBook Air vs. iPad 3G

  • February 23rd, 2011

At one point, I had both an 11.6″ MacBook Air (1.6GHz, 128GB, 4GB) and iPad 3G (16GB) to supplement my main 15″ MacBook Pro. After 30 days, the MacBook Air went back to Apple. Why? In those 30 days, the Air was used for no more than 10 total hours. The rest of the time, […]

Apple iPad, Underwhelmed? Will you buy one?

  • January 27th, 2010

The Apple tablet for the masses is here and it’s called the Apple iPad. I’m sure Apple conducted hours of user research & feedback to decide on the name iPad. Right? I really liked the idea of the tablet being called Canvas though. So what are my initial thoughts? When will the iPad Pro be […]
