$200 iPhone price-cut?! I expected that next year

  • September 5th, 2007

UPDATE 09/06: Steve Jobs posts an open letter confirming that early iPhone adopters will receive a $100 voucher to be used at the Apple Store. September 5th, Apple announces new iPod hardware – which iPod are you? Not surprising considering early rumors spoke of such updates weeks ago. What was not expected was the significant […]

Media Temple offers iPhone "friendly" AccountCenter

  • July 25th, 2007

Jason was kind enough to inform me that Media Temple customers with an iPhone in their back pocket now have quick access to their accounts with the new iPhone "friendly" AccountCenter interface! Media Temple customers can now manage their hosted site(s) from a sleeker, faster, and more convenient interface. Website administrators now have convenient access […]

A look at the iPhone, after all the ritz and glamor

  • July 1st, 2007

Before delving into my personal thoughts concerning the recently released Apple iPhone, I must apologize for any preconceived notions – expressed via 5thirtyone.com, through IM or email, or verbally [during lunch / coffee breaks] – that the iPhone would have a difficult time standing up against the Nokia N95 or BlackBerry devices. Silly me. Apple, […]

Controlling multiple Macs, locally and remotely

  • May 23rd, 2007

For anyone who owns more than one Apple computer, the thought of controlling two or more machines at the same time is surely something many people think of. Despite any previous assumptions you may have had, the steps necessary to control two or more Apple computers [at the same time] is quite simple and easily […]

The 2.16GHz Core 2 Duo MacBook, no 12.1" MacBook Pro

  • May 18th, 2007

Anyone who has followed my hardware track record, articles, and Tweets will surely know that when last Tuesday came and went without an update announcement along the lines of ‘The 12" PowerBook grown up, meet the 12.1" MacBook Pro’, I was sorely disappointed. In fact, not too long ago, I even went so far as […]

Apple TV needs "streaming" parental controls

  • March 25th, 2007

Although I have thoroughly enjoyed the Apple TV over the past few days, I raise an eyebrow when I think about Apple’s reasoning for dismissing the idea of Parental Controls for streaming video content. Due to the number of iTunes enabled computers on my home network, and the paltry hardrive included with the Apple TV, […]

Apple TV, the impressive impulse purchase

  • March 23rd, 2007

One more excuse to be unproductive and lazy, I took home the Apple TV. Yes, that’s right, I succumbed to the alluring draw of one more shiny Apple gadget. The net is full of recent reviews and I do not plan on spending much time doing the same (that would take away from entertaining myself […]

What Apple ProCare service?

  • March 14th, 2007

Two days ago I noticed a saddening spectacle as I witnessed a dark irregular shape creep across the corner of one of my 23" Apple Cinema Displays. In stark contrast to a previous Apple service visit with ProCare membership in hand, a recent visit to the U-Village Apple Store was a complete surprise. As stated […]

iPhone with Cingular receipt

  • March 6th, 2007

Image links to an actual photograph of the original receipt – Cingular Store, Redmond, WA. Late last week I traded in my Sprint BlackBerry 8703e for a Cingular BlackBerry Pearl. I will reserve a full review / thoughts for another day. However, today I felt the urge to share this little piece of info. Earlier […]

Create & manage screenshots on OS X

  • December 7th, 2006

Creating & managing screenshots on OS X may not garner the same type of attention had the topic been something more along the lines of creating a web development environment on OS X, cloning a hardrive, or improving your iChat experience. Regardless, those that do collect and amass a large collection of images can attest […]
