Really, it would be about the size of the current iPhone (5c and 5s at the time of writing). It’s pretty darn near the perfect screen …

For The iOS7 Haters…

A lot of people dislike iOS 7. They can’t stand it. They are passionate about hating it. Even rabid Apple fans. I don’t quite get it, though I am trying to understand where they are coming from. Personally, I love iOS 7. To me, the obvious reason almost any non-designer, regular user doesn’t like iOS 7 is because they are …

iPad Air Smart Case Review

The bottom line: The iPad Air Smart Case excels as a stylish, lightweight and high-quality protective enclosure. It fails a little bit at being a stand. Since I ordered my iPad Air and the corresponding smart case ($79) from Apple the day they were first available, I’d imagine I am one of the first to post a review. Normally, a …

I Feel Like I’m Watching Apple Disintegrate (Update)

Update: Check out this article for more background info. It came to my attention today that Apple owns this patent that allows the Camera in my iPhone to be disabled.

Review: Day One Journal App Is Worth Downloading and Using

What do Theodore Roosevelt, Thomas Jefferson and Benjamin Franklin all have in common? They all kept journals. Somehow journaling became a “girly” thing to do in recent years, but in reality it’s perfectly manly.
