This isn’t exactly a full review, as much as it is huge Kudos to Mark/Space for their killer software, Missing Sync. All the cell phones I’ve owned have been good enough to connect with my Macs right out of the box. Bluetooth on, and BOOM! Good […] Read more »

Geez, I think I’m gonna start this as a regular sort of topic here at The Apple Blog. This’ll be the 2nd example this week of a business leader in a seat of power talking about their move to Macintosh computers (here’s the other from this […] Read more »

Just today Parallels released their latest beta of their popular Virtualization software. While I haven’t had a chance to give it a try just yet, I have been testing it out as a replacement for my Windows Laptop at work. I’m crafting the piece right now, […] Read more »

So as we announced yesterday, we’re having a bit of a contest. We’re giving away all sorts of things like free apps and accessories to people. One of the companies that graciously donated stuff was Griffin Technology. We knew we were getting some cool stuff to […] Read more »

Could Apple start receiving a portion of every music download from every online music store, even Microsoft’s new Zune Marketplace? According to patent attorney Michael Starkweather, that could start happening very soon. I believe that, with this patent in hand, Apple will eventually be after every […] Read more »

Missing OS 9′s appearance themes? Longing for the ability to tear your Intel-based Mac away from the horrors of the iTunes 7 interface? Well, today’s your lucky day, because Unsanity‘s Shapeshifter has finally come out of its seven-moth beta in the quest for Intel-compatibility, and after […] Read more »

I will be in the market for a new Mac in early 2007. I currently use a PowerBook G4-1.5GHz, 2GB ram, 15 inch screen; 80GB hard disk. I use this for tons of stuff, including but not limited to: podcast production (Audacity and iTunes); Office apps […] Read more »

These days, everyone seems to have an opinion on what Apple’s going to do next. It’s not surprising to see analysts base their prediction for Apple stock entirely on an upcoming product. Doing that is fine for, say, Intel, because their roadmap is available for public […] Read more »

Text editors are great if for no other reason than that you can execute a search and replace function. This little tool has saved me countless hours of tedious, mind-numbing text replacement exercises. But what happens when you need to alter several items outside of a […] Read more »

In the comments of ‘Banking on Apple‘ the discussion of Apple Hardware becoming more standard across the desks at large companies seemed to take a front seat. It’s an interesting topic that ultimately sprang – in this forum – from a not-fully-explained comment of mine. I […] Read more »

A couple days ago I began to write about this post by Zeldman. But then I saw it referenced in another place or two, and thought it not significant enough to devote my time to when a couple others already had. But this thing just keeps […] Read more »

I gone into reviewing Mouseposé with the idea of using it in the classroom where I teach introductory Mac classes. It’s a simple app in its function and design and so I thought a good approach to this review would be to discuss the scenarios where […] Read more »

How many of you Mac users out there have ever attempted to persuade someone to Get a Mac? How many of you have ever engaged in a debate or argument with a user of a certain other operating system over the virtues of your respective OS? […] Read more »

Earlier today Reuters reported that Universal Music, the largest music company in the world, may soon ask Apple for royalties on each iPod sold. One can hardly blame Universal for wanting to push this envelope, given that Microsoft opened the can of worms by offering to […] Read more »

Apple has posted three new “Get A Mac” ads: Gift Exchange shows the Mac give the PC an iPhoto book. The PC remarks that it looks like a lot of work, but then the Mac replies that it only took a few clicks in iPhoto. Then, […] Read more »

I’ll preface this post by noting that I’m the last person to ask for stock tips. I don’t have the mind for it and I don’t keep track of that stuff in a manner that’s useful to anyone but myself. You want stock tips? I’ll point […] Read more »

In the past 4 years I’ve gone from the 17″ PowerBook, to a 15″ Powerbook, to a 13″ MacBook. Each time I’ve upgraded the system, but clearly downgraded the display size. I get by because of the 20″ LCD I connect to on my desk at […] Read more »

When Apple created Mac OS X, they didn’t build on the creaky foundation of the Classic Mac operating system. So when OS X was first released, there were a number of features that long-term Mac users considered missing. Over the course of four major upgrades, Apple […] Read more »

I love the ravenous Mac community. There’s always some rumor flying around, or a contest to mock-up fake products. Simply put, the community made-up of Apple fans is devoted. Most recently on the list of rumors (again) is a Tablet form-factor unit from Apple. This one’s […] Read more »

While I’m certain most of us would love to put that Mac/Book Pro on our wishlists this holiday season, they’re probably not the most realistic choices. Accessories for your Mac however, are much more realistic and can hugely enhance your computing experience. Obviously there are a […] Read more »

Over the past couple of years of running The Apple Blog, I’ve tried out literally thousands of applications. A lot have been great apps that I still use today, but infinitely more have just been plain bad. I know I’m not the only one who’s experienced […] Read more »

There are two things that the day after Thanksgiving is famous for: leftovers and shopping. I don’t know about you, but I look forward to the leftovers more than the 4am shopping sprees; however, I will be heading over to my local Apple store today to […] Read more »

Just a quick reminder. Don’t forget about Apple’s special one-day shopping event with tons of killer deals and free shipping for all good boys and girls. I know I won’t even think about stepping foot near any retail store on Friday, but I might make use […] Read more »

I do quite a bit of design and development with my company. To keep things streamlined I’ve setup my machine as a local development server to avoid the obvious hassle of having to FTP files every time I make a change that I want to see. […] Read more »

Apple have posted a snazzy new commercial for the new iPod shuffle. It features Who’s Gonna Sing? by the Prototypes. This particular commercial seems to be a small departure from the usual fast-paced, high-energy feel of previous iPod commercials with nothing more than a dull green […] Read more »

It’s that time again. We’re looking for more writers for TAB. If you’re interested, we want to talk to you. A few things before you take the time to contact us: You MUST have either a blog or have previous experience with writing for a publication […] Read more »

Years ago, I was a technician for an office that distributed important information via sneaker net. Meaning, of course, that this was before we linked everything with cables, and information was passed around via floppy disk (remember those!). Without fail, once a week or so, someone […] Read more »

At the 2004 Macworld San Francisco keynote, while recounting the success of the iTunes Music Store since its inception nine months ago, Steve Jobs noted that the top spender on iTunes had spent $29,500. While reaction probably ranged from shock (‘Surely some kid just accidentally hit […] Read more »

Each day I’m more and more baffled by how stupid big label executives are. I’m really starting to believe they want to go out of business. In a recent news article on Billboard.com there was a blurb about how Microsoft has agreed to share revenue from […] Read more »

Walt Mossberg posted some interesting observations on the design of the Zune compared next to the iPod 30GB. It seems Microsoft is ashamed to admit they are behind the product. Nowhere in the Zune ecosystem is a mention of the company. The back of the unit […] Read more »

Idiotic though the name may be, Apple’s iPod nano (Product) RED appears to have been something of a success. Certainly in the short time the 4GB version has been available, it has demonstrated its popularity sufficient to warrant the release of an 8GB version, and, as […] Read more »

Pzizz is the perfect example of the kind of applications I love to see on my Mac. No wait, it’s the perfect example of applications I expect to see on my Mac. Aside from having a cool trendy name full of ‘z’ that even a french […] Read more »

Review So I’ve never really been much of a fan of the Shuffle. It’s always just seemed like yet another iPod Apple put out. So, while I do think there is a market for it, this second time around for the Shuffle doesn’t change my mind. […] Read more »

Yesterday I picked the new iPod nano (PRODUCT) RED and thought I’d drop some photo’s of it here. Note that I think the actual full name of this iPod is absurd and in my mind doesn’t follow Apple’s standards for simplicity. It’s the most confusing product […] Read more »

Well Sid, you did it again. Once again you have created something that will keep people awake for hours on end – living out their fantasies as George Washington or Genghis Kahn. I mean, haven’t we all wondered what would have happened if Alexander the Great […] Read more »

This may not be the freshest tip for the Quicksilver-inclined, but I find it infinitely more useful than constellation menus and I think it’s something every Quicksilver user should know about. Using a handy Quicksilver plugin, you can access every menu item in the currently active […] Read more »
