  • 10 Power Tips to Help PC Users Switch to Mac

    Seems like more and more people I know are making the switch from Windows to Mac. Apparently, no one cares that the economy sucks and pundits are telling them that people just like them, Joe the Plumber as it were, are saving their money and not buying bling products like Apple. Perhaps people are realizing […]

  • Even During a Recession, Small Businesses Still Should Consider Macbooks

    I was talking to someone recently who just took a new job at a small web-company. She has been a Windows user all her life but she asked me what she should get in her new job. They were buying her a new computer. Naturally, I suggested the new Macbook that Apple announced yesterday. The […]

  • Hints at an $800 Apple laptop, Bloggers Report, Stock up 4 points

    It was quite interesting to watch the market swing yesterday. Apple (AAPL) took a 20% hit on the market last week when it was expected that consumer spending on “bling” would be reduced. “Bling” stocks like Apple, Starbucks (SBUX) and other companies representing consumers “living the life” mentalities tanked with futures projections. And then yesterday […]

  • Thoughts on MobileMe and Apple

    As I’ve spent the past 24 hours wiping my Macbook Pro and trying to get back up to speed, I thought I’d give a few thoughts on MobileMe, Apple Mail and Push/Cloud technology. This is relatively raw as I am much more focused on getting back to work than I am “getting things right” as […]

  • Don't Buy the Coming Hype – Apple Botched the iPhone Launch, Not the Carriers

    Possibly the worst public relations nightmare in internet history occurred yesterday. Hardcore fans wanting to buy the new iPhone 3G camped out over night, and in some cases for days, to be the first to get their hands on the new, sexy, shiny device from their perfect company, Apple. What they got was unexpected. They […]

  • How the Macbook Air is the future of Computing

    If you didn’t have a chance to see history made last week, you should go watch it. History was made with yet another computer company announcing yet another laptop with better specs than the generation before. Yet somehow, Steve Jobs’ keynote address at Macworld announcing the Macbook Air was different. Historically different. There have only […]

  • Something is in the Air

    Macworld Expo is this week and, true to Apple form, they pulled it off perfectly. Complete with bait and switch. On Monday, there was a “supposed” leak of Steve Jobs’ keynote and many people fell for it. Notably, Steve Rubel (who has a history of being reactionary and wrong), called it reliable because it was […]

  • The Apple Store: Where Intelligent People Go to Die

    What is it about Apple that causes otherwise intelligent people to throw away all trace of common sense? We all know that Apple has done very well for itself, turning around from a mere 4% market share in its computer division in the 90s to having a very viable and sustainable (and diverse!) product line. […]
