Not that Halo. The iPod’s success has drawn so many Windows PC users to the Apple brand. The Halo effect is the resulting purchase of other Apple products – namely computer systems – because people have come to love the iPod so much. It’s brilliant, and […] Read more »

I think (hope) everyone knows how fantastic iPhoto and Graphic Converter work. This isn’t about those applications. I wanted to write about a few small image utilities/apps/whatever that you may not have heard of yet. I use these almost daily and haven’t found anything I like […] Read more »

There’s an awesome story at PacificT (the current owners of Graphing Calculator) about the history of the app. It’s written by Ron Avitzur, the guy that made it happen – skunkworks style – after the project had been canned by Apple. Very entertaining read if you […] Read more »

CNet interviewed Karl Freund, vice president of IBM eServer pSeries to find out what’s upcoming from IBM in 2005. While the focus is on IBM’s work, there’s the obvious relationship with Apple, and therefore the benefits that may be in store for Apple Computer users. Most […] Read more »
