Take the probable launch of an iPhone – just the mere rumour of this product launching is enough to hurt sales of Apple’s previous phone product. Apple is also has it’s users on an ever changing merry-go-round that seems to never stop. Apple’s products have to have the shortest lifespan of all technology because of this ever speedy cycle of new products and upgrades. Today, we have a new announcement – let’s see what’s in store.
Tizen has been under my radar for the better part of a year. No longer, I can tell you about Tizen and the promise this new OS brings.
It can be crazy, but the media attention surrounding any Apple event ramps up like something Evel Knievel might’ve been ready to jump. It is important to keep it all in some perspective. These are product announcements, some that won’t even be released today – but still just announcements.
In this case I’m upgrading an already jailbroken 5.0.1 iPhone 4S to iOS 5.1.1 using a Mac. The jailbreak and tools are specific, but I think that this process will apply to other iOS devices like iPads as long as a jailbreak for the iOS version you’re upgrading to exists.
Apple’s tablet has seen better days with the technology press. This new tablet doesn’t feature any show-stopping new toys (as did previous incarnations). But, this is Apple, so you often have to see it to believe it. Join me as I get my hands on a new iPad determine if it’s worth the $519+ (in Canada) for a new one.
I wanted that sleek, thin, light, fast (?) machine in my hands for use as a daily device over all these other clunky laptops I’ve had to use in the past. Thanks to the wonders of patience, I found a Macbook Air (original model) that I could use on a daily basis.
Choosing this sort of solution for an office of OS X machines may be a no-brainer, but, what if you wanted to run a network of Windows computers on this server? Would it stack up well to what Microsoft offers? Does it offer the kinds of things you might expect from a Windows Server? Let’s take a look.
All I was looking for in this case was a 45W MagSafe power adaptor (commonly used with Macbook Air computers). Join me as I order one off the Internet in an effort to save a little money.
If you use Logmein on all the time, you’ll know that working from an Apple OSX machine has always been something of a pain. I have tried a number of things to get around some of the bugs I’ve seen, but few things really help. I found something today that has improved the use of Logmein on a Mac greatly. Let’s take a look at the problem and what you can do to solve it.
It’s something the phone companies don’t want to hear. Since none of them currently offer the ability to get a data-only plan – and many people still pay for service they barely use – don’t expect that to change any time soon. I think it’s a compelling argument: if you can do everything you require without only data on a phone, why aren’t more people demanding it? So, I’m going to take an iPhone and give it only data access (by way of WiFi tethered off another phone) and see how many of the daily-use features will work reliably.
