Ten years ago today, I was in the audience when Jobs introduced the Air. I was skeptical at the time (the work I was doing “required” the power of a full-sized laptop. At the time, I was lugging around a 17″ MacBook Pro) but now I love my Air, especially when I travel.
One of the best music documentaries I’ve ever seen is “It Might Get Loud” – Jimmy Page, Jack White, and The Edge just sitting around, talking about playing guitar – and this segment of Page talking about one of the most distinctive riffs in music is a great example of it.
Pencils are one of those things few of us give any thought to – or, for that matter, use much any more – but this glorious photo essay will definitely get you thinking about the “lowly” pencil.
I bet a lot of people in his industry do similar things, especially for blockbusters.
At what point is it just Apple trying to protect its customers from nefarious forces that, sadly nowadays, include governments?
I’ve always been a fan of Matias keyboards.
Good news for Apple. But – what took him so long? The initial Billboard rumor was five days ago.
Anyone shedding a tear for advertising companies, who for years ignored users’ requests for less intrusive advertising, suddenly crying poverty over Apple’s efforts to offer that protection to their users?
I don’t by the full doom and gloom of the article but an overreliance on smartphones in any number of ways is definitely something to be watchful of.
Ignoring the marketing speak in this press release, the bottom line – that Powermat is going with the Qi standard – is good for consumers. It means a less confusing marketplace.
This is a wonderfully geeky examination of the iPhone X Home Indicator and how it dynamically changes color. I still hate it though.
This is a well-written explainer on what happens with Meltdown. Even I understood it. And I never say this but – read the comments as well.
These aren’t far-fetched expectations. After all, their four highlights have been the star of the show for many years now.
This vulnerability is so widespread it’s important for those of us who support various users to know as much as we can about it and what vendors and companies are doing to mitigate the damage.
This is one of those photos so improbable, you immediately think it’s fake. Reading the story about the amazing shot and you realize, faking it would have been easier.
I’m not a huge fan of audio books but I know I’ll be listening to the Asimov’s “Nightfall” and “The Foundation Trilogy” on my next 24-hour flight to Australia.
Apple: Apple has unveiled its 2017 charts and trends, celebrating the most popular apps, music, movies, TV shows, books and podcasts across the App Store, Apple Music, iTunes, iBooks and Apple Podcasts. Editors and curators from Apple Music, App Store … Continued
Want to know what we Canadians like up here in the Great White North?
I’m a “Best of…” list addict. Apple has several bits of kit on this list and I’m sure we’ll see them on many more before the end of the year.
These are all beautiful images (even if many are staged and/or heavily Photoshopped) and some of them are utterly spectacular, particularly for me #9, #8, and #1.
“If you’re still judging Apple’s original video content strategy on the basis of Carpool Karaoke and Planet of the Apps, you’re way wide of the mark at this point.”
Today marks the 100th anniversary of the largest man-made, non-nuclear explosion in history.
This has been a remarkable series I have enjoyed immensely. Anyone who is a fan of movies and wants to understand how what occurs on screen is painstakingly created should watch these videos.
Many of us are justifiably skeptical about Consumer Reports and their tests of Apple products in general but many others rely on them for help in making purchase decisions.
I’m not a huge fan of the actual photos taken – I’ve been to the places shot and the photos seem washed out, colour-wise, but that may be the photographer’s editing – but the detail in the shots is remarkable.
This footage is so amazing, I’m tempted to call it fake. But it’s not and it’s spectacular.
This seems to be such an odd story. Ireland doesn’t want the money. Apple doesn’t want to pay the money. But the rules of the EU dictate the settlement.
Apple and Cook are walking a fine line between their corporate culture of user privacy and the Chinese government’s desire for control over those same users.
A “super blue blood moon”? Come on. They’re just making stuff up now.
After some friendly nudging by Dave Mark and I (and others), Rich Mogull comes up with his usual great explanation and cuts through the FUD.
