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. The exact language that bother me is “disable a function of the device.” Why? Let’s say I am at a concert or filming a police officer brutally beating a citizen… …

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. While sites like Facebook will chronicle things in your life automatically for you, there is no replacement for a private repository of your thoughts. I realized …

Apple Should Charge More for the iPhone, Not Less

Reports are surfacing today that Apple is considering a “low-cost” iPhone option for overseas markets like China (via DigiTimes and WSJ). Obviously, this is aimed at making more money by selling more iPhones in places where paying American-style prices for a smartphone just isn’t feasible for a large chunk of the population. I have a different idea: Apple should make …

Drop the iPhone 5 for a Galaxy Note? You’ve Got to be Kidding

Last week I ran across an article titled Why I Might Drop the iPhone 5 for the Galaxy Note II, and You Should Too by Ed Zitron. I’m sorry to say, this is a terrible article in my opinion with little to no compelling argument. It’s essentially a headline without any content–shame on Forbes for even posting it. Nobody, including myself, …

Microsoft Office Vs Apple iWork Vs Google Drive

Today I wanted to post a few quick thoughts about Office, iWork and Google Drive. I use them all (for different things) and I believe it gives me (and you) a valuable snapshot as to what strengths each service currently plays to. In the old days, Microsoft was the only real show in town when it came to word processing, …

Would You Buy An Apple iWatch?

There has been a flurry of blog posts lately about the rumored iWatch, or smart watch, from Apple. Here’s TechCrunch’s coverage of the rumor. Diehard Apple fans will probably be drooling over the possibility as anything new from Apple tends to make their mouths water (though I always caution that Steve Jobs shut down anything he saw as extraneous when …

Is Siri Really This Stupid? Yikes

I love Apple products but Siri is ticking me off lately. The typical Apple product is simple and easy to use. Well, today I discovered that Siri is a little too simple… as in stupid. I love using Siri to set reminders, especially in conjunction with iCloud. That is super useful. Today, though, I asked Siri to remind me to …

Is Apple’s Magic Officially Gone?

Most people seem to think Apple will always be the Apple so many people have come to know and love in recent years, but Steve Jobs would be the first person to remind us that even the mighty can fall (and fall hard). With the introduction of the iPad Mini, could Apple be starting back down the slippery slope of …

See Further: Stand on the Shoulders of Giants

Isaac Newton is famous for saying that if he saw further than other people it was because he stood on the shoulders of giants. In his case he was referring to the science foundations laid by those who came before him. You know, you can do the exact same thing. There is no reason why you must do everything on …

Paid Apps Make My iPad Worthwhile

According to TechCrunch, most apps (89%) that are downloaded are free apps. What’s interesting to me is the fact that I get the most value from paid apps, not free apps (which seems a bit ironic). Just like anyone with an iPad/iPhone (or Android device, which I don’t have), I’ve loaded up on free apps. In the news reader/digital magazine …

I recently purchased 80+ iPads and 30 or so Kindle Fires for a group of employees at work.
