We reported a couple of weeks ago about the recent Apple/Nike partnership to created a killer pair of shoes…but this isn’t Apple’s first foray into the shoe market. I present you with…the Air Apple: Seems back in the 80s/90s, Apple decided to provided their employees with […] Read more »

A friend of mine recently asked me if I knew of any alternates to iTunes for playing/organizing music. I personally love iTunes but I’m aware that my friend isn’t the only person with a distaste for it. So, got any suggestions for other apps that play/organize […] Read more »

For ages I used Dreamweaver’s FTP utility. But in the last year or so I’ve changed my workflow and don’t use Dreamweaver anymore for any sort of coding (I use TextMate). Since TextMate doesn’t have built in FTP service I’ve been using Panic’s Transmit. Unfortunately I […] Read more »

So after a solid year of careless downloads, installs, file storage, and a plethora of other bad usage habits, I’m going to do a clean install of Tiger. This time around I’d like to do it right. I need an environment that’s conducive to a fast […] Read more »

Since our start about a year and a half ago, The Apple Blog’s RSS feed has only been available in “Summary” form…meaning only the first few sentences were displayed in feed readers. Today we’re proud to announce that our RSS feed now contains full articles. Merry…April. Read more »

Colormod company ColorWare is now offering the MacBook Pro in 20 different delicious colors from lime green to hot pink and everything in between. Right now it seems they only have the 15″ MacBooks available. I’m not sure what I think about this. I usually find […] Read more »

I don’t know much about this commercial other than a reader sent it to me. Supposedly the commercial, which appears to be for some sort of Apple/Support store, uses $60,000 worth of iPods to pull of the effect. Nice. Read more »

Seems we just can’t get out of the news. Today ABC News published an article that included a few words by yours truly. “For someone who’s hesitant to make the switch to Mac and OS X, this is just another reason to make it more attractive,” […] Read more »

So I’ve been using Griffin’s RadioShark for a few weeks now and must say, I love it. I’m generally not a big radio fan but this has resparked my interest…specifically with Jazz music. I’ve got some 3,200+ songs in my iTunes collection but don’t really know […] Read more »

It would seem, atleast according to the picture above, that Best Buy is now distributing PowerBooks with Windows 98 preinstalled. It says on the product description page that Tiger is preinstalled…but I think that’s just a typo. I’ve been waiting for Windows 98 to be available […] Read more »

Well here we have it. The 3rd version of The Apple Blog. Total revamp in design and a good many new features both external and under the hood. We hope you like it! We also would like to hear of any problems you’re having with the […] Read more »

I love this thing. Seriously. There’s not a day that goes by that I don’t use it. It’s Altec Lansing’s iM7. Whether you’re heading out to the beach or helping your wife out in the kitchen washing dishes, the iM7 has what you need to bump […] Read more »

Here are some beautiful MacBook Pro pictures courtesy of Dan. Be sure to click on these thumbnails to see the full size pictures. Quality stuff my friends. Read more »

Dan just informed me from Macworld that the new MacBook’s have no Firewire 800 in them. Steve seemed to have accidently left that little bit out. We’ve posed the question before about the possibility that firewire could be bowing out…could this be a major blow to […] Read more »

For the past couple of years Feedster has been having a “Feed of the Day” on their site in which they recognize some pretty sweet blogs/sites. This year they are announcing their “Feeds of the Year” for 2005 and are doing it countdown style announcing a […] Read more »

Back in my high school days (which also happened to by my Windows days), I and all of my friends found it quite eventful to skin the fire out of our Windows 95 interface. Windows themes were plentiful and we didn’t have anything better to do. […] Read more »

Since the launch of Tiger back in April, I’ve found myself using Dashboard less and less other than a “Hey guys, look at this sweet feature.” that I throw at friends. That being said, I do use a couple of widgets pretty religiously. The ones I […] Read more »

A couple of months back I made my plea for a mouse recommendation. There was a fantastic response from everyone and quite a few people recommended the Logitech MX1000. So I figured I’d give it a try. Needless to say, I was impressed. Whatever mouse I […] Read more »

Unfortunately this installment of TAB’s “Download This App” won’t really apply to everybody…but I use it and so do lots of other people…so it’s relevant :) The app that I’m referring to here is Software’s Studiometry. It’s their self-proclaimed “ultimate” organizational tool for professionals. In […] Read more »

Just a quick mention here…I’ve been reading the new The Cult of iPod book, which was written by the same guy who wrote The Cult of Mac, and must say it’s a good read. Just overall a great background and history of the iPod in addition […] Read more »

I don’t know who the heck Anthony is…but what better way to celebrate TAB’s birthday than with a poo cake? Seriously. Anywho, today really is TAB’s birthday. We launched this sucka 1 year ago today. 38 contributors, 3 slashdottings, and 87 boxes of oreo’s later we’re […] Read more »

No, we don’t have some inside information that hints at iTunes ever costing a dime…just curious what you think. If Apple ever decided (for whatever reason) to require you to pay for iTunes…would you? Read more »

So I’ve been using Tiger since the day it was released and there are many features that I love and others that I find completely useless or have yet to find a use for. A couple of those things that I’ve yet to really find a […] Read more »

Chris over at PowerMax was kind enough to let us know about some pictures they have of the new Dual-core PowerMac G5. The pics are high quality and they’ve got commentary…can’t beat that. Read more »

For about 2 years I’ve been using a 12×18 Wacom Intuos2 graphics tablet for my mousing needs. It’s been a fantastic mouse (and tablet) but I don’t have as much use for it as I did before. So what I’d like to do now is snag […] Read more »

A rockin’ app I ran across a few days back that has significantly increased my productivity and efficiency is Peter Maurer’s Textpander. It uses user-defined ‘snippets’ to automatically insert text and images. By typing ‘ddate’ it automatically inserts the current date. By typing ‘tab’ I get […] Read more »

On Tuesday Creative Technology made a claim that they have a patent on technology that Apple’s iPod uses. They’ve yet to say if they will be filling suit but technology lawyers believe it to be almost certain that they will. Creative said the patent covers the […] Read more »

For this years Resource Pool (I say “year” because who knows when I’ll get around to doing another one of these) we bring you “Automator Actions.” There won’t be a whole lot of commentary to this post…just a pile of juice links to cool sites with […] Read more »

We here at The Apple Blog are once again in need of more writers. You MUST have previous writing experience and be able to show examples of it. Writings about anything technology related will probably make you way cooler than anybody else…so show those off. This […] Read more »

At Macworld Boston this week, a new service called Etch-A-Mac was debuted. “Wait, does that company do what I think they do?” you might ask. And yes, they do. This company has just launched their new laser-based personalization service which uses a CO2 laser to etch […] Read more »

In our first installment of our weekly “Download This App” we bring you an app that makes Dashboard what it should have been from the start. Mesa Dynamic’s Amnesty allows you to run widgets as if they were their own stand alone app. Why is this […] Read more »

I had this really long post written out talking about why Windows users theme their OS to look like OS X and the underlying meaning of it all when all I really wanted to do was post a link to this absolutely fantastic browser version of […] Read more »

So I’m generally not the type to promote giving money away to people for no real good reason…and I’m still not. But I, for whatever reason, found this to be somewhat amusing. A former NYC School of Visual Arts graduate (named Vinny) is in need of […] Read more »

I for one am an advocate of “getting away” every now and then. I like to take the occasional vacation and “do without” for a few days. No cell phone, no PDA, and yes…no Apple. I frequently find myself in technology-overkill trying to stay up on […] Read more »

As most of you probably noticed, the TAB server just about grinded to a halt. We had so many people all on the WWDC Live Coverage page all hitting “Refresh” over and over that it sent our server load through the roof. Shame on us for […] Read more »

Tired of seeing ole’ Jobs in blue jeans and a sweater? Well now you can play dress up with him. Dress him up like a pirate, biker, beach bum, knight, punk, pimp, and more. The Joy of Tech has created this killer flash app to allow […] Read more »
