Tiger: So Far So Good.

Monday, May 2nd, 2005

So I have Tiger up and running. Not only that, but I only forgot, and subsequently lost, one thing I needed in my clean install / upgrade (Which is actually really good for me!). I promise I won't rehash what every other blog or site in the entire world has ...

DanielCole: A Mac Cult Member

Saturday, April 30th, 2005

Well, It's Done. After swaying back and forth for weeks and finally making up my mind but then having the agonizing realization that it was best to wait for OSX:Tiger to ship, I've put $701.43 down on my newest computer and first-ever Apple product: The Mac Mini. I went with ...

Tiger: Shipped

Thursday, April 28th, 2005

My copy of Tiger, Apple's new version of their operating system, has offically shipped! As promised, it will arrive on the 29th. Unfortunatly, I will be going out of town for the weekend, so I won't have a chance to play with it until Sunday night. The only question ...

Hackers are the new switchers?

Wednesday, March 30th, 2005

Jason Kottke posted a link to a article from a guy the believes that all the best "hackers" are going back to mac. With OS X, the hackers are back. When I walked into the Apple store in Cambridge, it was like coming home. Much was changed, but there was still ...

Two Finger Scrolling For All!

Saturday, March 12th, 2005

...well, all OS X users with newer Powerbooks and iBooks, that is. Some smart little guy hooked a "hack" up that allows users of iBooks and Powerbooks purchased within the last year or 2 to have the cool two-finger scrolling feature that Apple put on the new Powerbooks. I know ...

iPod – Firewire = New iPod

Thursday, February 24th, 2005

Daring Fireball has another great article posted up, whats new right? Well just for the sake of making a post, when I can't think of anything else, I'll tell you a quick bit about the post. Its all about why Apple ditched the firewire cable from the freebies inside new ...

Steve vs. the Two Button Mouse

Tuesday, February 15th, 2005

Have you ever wondered why Apple seems to be sticking with their one-button mouse design? Well someone, that I'm guessing has no girlfriend, has thought about this and spent more time writing it down. Some of his points make sense, but I still think that stubborn ole' Steve Jobs just ...

LaVar Burton: Blind To His Lack of Fame

Monday, February 14th, 2005

Although I'm a bit split on Wired writer Leander Kahney's articles and opinions at times, he does prove to write the interesting article from time to time. For instance, Kahney's newest article at Wired: Stars Take a Shine to Apple. Its a nice fluff peice about stories that Apple Store employees from ...

Weird iPod Video

Thursday, January 13th, 2005

I know, I know! I've been doing a lot of Apple stuff lately. I was going to stop, but then I found this really weird video about an "iPod World". Very weird. And I promise I'll take a break from the Mac related articles for at least a ...

iPod Shuffle: Not For Ingestion

Tuesday, January 11th, 2005

Apple introduced the iPod Shuffle today. Its a cool looking little thing, I wouldn't get one, but I can see that many others might just eat these things up! However, Apple suggests that is exactly what they shouldn't do! (See #2 in the picture.) Yes, thats right, Apple suggests that you ...
