This Is The Most Un-Apple-Like Thing About Macs

Apple makes amazing computers packed with amazingly crappy screen savers. I can’t believe it; especially since Apple spends who knows how much money to hire who knows how many designers—led by the design-obsessed Jony Ive—to ensure that machine and interface alike look incredible.

So you have/want an Apple Watch. Don’t treat it like a Timex (or even a Rolex) just leaving it to sit around. This is no normal watch—it’s a smartwatch; and the king of the smartwatches at that.

How To Take Better iPhone Pictures + The Best Photo Apps

My iPhone IS my camera. I have a DSLR laying around the house somewhere, but I hardly ever use it anymore. My iPhone is more convenient and the quality improves with every new model. There are even rumors that the iPhone 6s or 7 may be able to take DSLR-like images. But the iPhone is […]

Why The Apple Watch Will Be A Hit

When I first heard about the Apple Watch—the actual thing, not just the rumors—my initial reaction was along the lines of, “Wow, that’s cool but I don’t know if I need one.” From that moment on, began to wonder if Apple might be making a really cool product that nobody would end up buying. I mean think […]

From the moment I knew I’d be buying an iPhone 6 I was thinking about what case I’d want to use. Yes, I hate to cover up such a beautiful work of art, but I’d much rather have a whole work of art than a broken one. Let’s face it: the iPhone 6 is a […]

Cult of Mac writer: “If you’re like me, you hate OS X’s dock”

I recently read this on Cult of Mac’s website: If you’re like me, you hate OS X’s Dock. While a useful UI innovation on Apple’s part, the dock takes up a surprising amount of screen real estate on what, in the end, adds up to a superfluous amount of visual fluff. It was a piece […]

Logitech Case [+] review: the last iPhone case you’ll ever need?

Fact: iPhones look and feel infinitely cooler without a cases. Fact: iPhones are too expensive for most people to just replace on a whim once broken. Conclusion: using a case for your iPhone is smart (if not slightly angering to Apple designer Jony Ive whose handy work you would be covering up). And if you have […]
