iOS 6 Available For Download

I downloaded iOS 6 for my iPad 2 a few hours ago, and am in the process of doing the same for my iPad touch (Yeah, I am just a bit invested in the Apple ecosystem, known to some as a “walled garden”). One of the first things that I noticed was that, at least […]

Here’s One More Thing…

It goes without saying that if you’re into Apple at all, this Wednesday will be of interest to you.  The rumor mill has it that Apple is not only going to introduce a refreshed iPod touch, but a new iPhone and more interestingly (at least for me) a new iPad that’s supposedly designed to compete […]

The Lion Roars

Edited 7/22 1155, 1216 According to cnet, Apple has sold 1 million copies of Lion (Mac OS X 10.7).  What’s most amazing about that number is not only that it was released last Wednesday, but for the first time Apple has issued a OS (operating system) that was downloadable via the App Store ( an […]

Apple Devours Hulu?

Final Cut Pro X Is Here!

Today Apple released Final Cut Pro X, their flagship video editing application. It’s available via the Apple App Store for $299. The prior version, Final Cut Studio, is in high demand by movie studios for film editing, though it remains to be seen if Final Cut Pro X is adopted as enthusiastically. At first, seeing […]

‘The Guard’ Trailer

I recently saw the trailer for “The Guard” via Apple, and it looks like fun.  I tend to be drawn to movies that involve culture-clashes (as long as everyone is treated in a dignified fashion) and this one looks like a doozy. One can imagine that Don Cheadle’s FBI character will find himself repelled by […]

More On Final Cut Pro X

I wasn’t planning on writing anything about Final Cut Pro X till I either got my hands on a copy, or reviews started appearing in the wild, though I changed my mind when I received an email on the subject.  Frankly, there isn’t much in the way of visuals, though it does give information about […]
