Trying Out the Apple Airpod

So it's been about 7 months since Apple Airpods have been available in limited quantities and the online store still shows a wait time of at least 6 weeks if you order them now. Luckily, while visiting a retail...

The Long and Tedious Road to 4K

For the past year or so, I had been slowly becoming increasingly dissatisfied with the pixel density of computer monitors that I've been using for the past few years. As can be seen from last year's desk photo, I've...

Getting Wet With the iPhone 6

In anticipation of a family outing to a Great Wolf indoor water park, I once again began pondering what to use for photos in an aquatic environment. In the past I had tried out waterproof compact cameras from Nikon...

My iPhone 5 Fiasco

Long time readers (if there are any left ;-p) will know that I'm a fairly extensive user of Apple products. So when the iPhone 5 officially opened up for preorder, I woke up at 3am just so I could...

Drives, Drives, and More Drives

For pretty much the last decade my main computer has been a laptop, starting from the gorgeous Powerbook G3 Wallstreet, through the titanium Powerbook G4s, and then the aluminum and unibody Macbook Pros. I pretty much figured that I was...

Incase Snap Case + Stand for iPhone 4

So a few weeks back I ordered this Incase Snap Case for the iPhone 4 through Apple's "We're Sorry You're Making Such a Big Deal Out of Nothing" program. ;-p It's not that I really needed it, having already...

Do You Believe in Magic?

It may be surprising to hear for those who know me but I don't follow Apple rumors very much. So their newly announced Magic Trackpad came as a complete surprise to me. At first I was like, seriously? A...

ifrogz LuxeLean Case for iPhone 4

With my iPhones I tend to run through a couple of different cases throughout their lifetime. As is typical of every iPhone release, available cases during launch was pretty minimal. It was a little different this time around as...

Earphones Once More

So, it's been a little over a year since my last earphone post. Ever since I picked up the Etymotic hf2, it has been my preferred everyday earphone for use with the iPhone. However, the hf2 isn't without its problems....

Never a Dull Day...

after Apple announces something. Well I was in the midst of typing up a long-winded, rambling, and highly-sarcastic jab at the new iPhone 3G[S] price complainers when Gizmodo beats me to it. Oh well, guess that's why they're the experts....

Misc Tidbits on Transitioning to the Brick MBP

'k, so I'm pretty much done moving my data and stuff from my old MBP to the new one. This time around I used Apple's Migration Assistant to copy over all the apps and Library data. Worked without a hitch...

Brick MacBook Pro Unboxing

So, finally got the chance to open up my new MBP late last night. First off, I think the box is getting smaller with every release. As can be seen, the top lid of the box has a piece...

New Computer Smell

Lot of people like the new car smell, I prefer the new gadget smell. Well, ok, I wouldn't mind a new car smell but that ain't happening for a while so new gadget smell is all I can get...

Getting Breezy in Here

So recently I was able to get my grubby mitts on a black MSI Wind. WTF is a MSI Wind, you say? Why it's only the best EEE class laptop available (somewhat) today. Which may or may not be...

My iPhone 3G's New Armor

So if Google Analytics is any indication, there's a bunch of iPhonatics out there eagerly waiting for CoZip to update their polycarbonate slim fit case to fit the new 3G. I was one of those fanatics. Well, if you don't...

My iPhone 3G Armor

So the first thing I did upon arriving at the office on Friday with my new iPhone 3G was hit my favorite screen protector provider to see if they had one compatible for the new phone. And they did, so...

Same Ol' Song & Dance

Got up bright and early this morning at 6am for the Apple iPhone 3G launch. Was thinking that I had probably gotten up too early but figured I'd go and drop by the local AT&T store for a look....

Everyone Needs Their Own Space(s)

So I was quite excited to read Gruber's post on the changes Apple made to Spaces in the latest 10.5.3 update. Like Gruber, the limitation that Spaces had prior to 10.5.3 also prevented me from using it. Just played around...

Yet Another New Hard Drive

As regular readers may have noticed by now, I have a tendency to shoehorn the highest capacity hard drives into my MacBook Pro as soon as they're available. So I was pretty psyched in March when Samsung announced that their...

The Best Laid Plans...

Regular readers will notice that computer upgrades have pretty much never worked out as planned where I'm concerned. This past weekend proved no exception. With the recent MacBook Pro Penryn upgrade, I was hankerin' for a laptop boost and even...

Much Ado About Photography

Recently Apple upgraded Aperture to version 2 which is supposed to pack a significant performance increase as version 1 was, to put it nicely, dog slow when working with a large library. However, the one factor that kept me an...

Another Year, Another MacWorld

So this year's MacWorld keynote has come and gone and what does Apple have to show for it? One ridiculously slim laptop. As expected, the new laptop "looks" phenomenal. 13.3" is a good screen size and while the memory...

Another Year, More Gadgets to Collect

Hmm... it appears that hard drive manufacturers are on a roll with their notebook drives this past year. It's been what, a month and a half since I upgraded my MBP's drive to what was the latest and greatest then,...

Maybe There is a God

Long time readers know I'm not exactly the person to go to when it comes to spiritual matters. But these two articles may change my mind: Apple giving $100 store credit to early iPhone adopters. Nepal Airlines fixes plane by...

I Heart My iPhone

So after yesterday's Apple event, the Interweb is aflame with the sound of fair-weather Apple early adopters' shrieks of anger and despair. C'mon guys, you're giving us real early adopters a bad name. ;-p If you can't stand the short...

iPhoto '08

So last night I decided to sit down and take a slightly longer look at the new iPhoto '08 and see if any changes and features affect my photo workflow. The short answer: not really. Which is a good thing...

Brains... BRAINS!!!

No, this isn't a zombie post. Just spent 10 minutes up'ing the RAM in my MacBook Pro from the default 2GB it came with to... 3GB!!! Yeah, yeah, doesn't sound like much of an increase but I had no choice,...

First Impressions

So I've been putzing around with the iPhone for a couple of days now and for the most part, I'm loving it. Mainly because the UI is just so easy and fun to use. For what it can do, it...

Gadget of the Day

What??? Mooooiiii..... with an iPhone??? Say it isn't so.... Yeah yeah, came as no surprise to anyone. Anyway, just throwing up some pics now, commentary later....

And so it begins...

Plans are being drawn up, camping equipment readied, it's going to be the PS3/Wii all over again. I suppose the easiest place to camp out in would be the 5th Avenue Apple Store since it's open 24/7. Unless they intentionally...

Lots of iPhone Features...

not mentioned during the keynote. And why Colbert hates the iPhone. Knowing some people out there they probably would need space for 150 kabillion contacts......

Apple of My Eye

As most of you may have heard by now, yesterday at approximately 9:40 am PST Apple fans the world over collectively soiled themselves upon the introduction of the quite impressive iPhone. Unfortunately a little over an hour later this...

Short NYC Excursion...

With Erin down to her last week or so of pregnancy, we decided to take a trip into the city since it's supposedly good for the mother if she does a good amount of walking and/or stair climbing. Plus...

Sony MacBook???

My mom's previous notebook, a Sony VGN-A130, gave up the ghost a few weeks back and I was tasked with either fixing it or just finding a new one for her. Since it was out of warranty and it...

Geeky pleasures...

The news of my main hard drive death was partly mitigated that same evening by an email I received from Apple notifying me that my ordered MacBook Pro (MBP) was finally leaving the largest Commie nation in the world....

Glass House...

After leaving Nintendo World we continued onwards to the Fifth Avenue Apple Store. The location is quite nice, situated in an open plaza surrounded by benches, tables and chairs where visitors can take a break from either shopping the...
