Since August I’ve Lost One Pound Per Week … Easily.

Tuesday, December 31st, 2013

During the last week of July 2013, Lisa noticed an article in Bottom Line Personal entitled, “I’m Kicking the Sugar Habit!” We receive BLP in print form every two weeks, but most of the articles make it online, this among them. The article laid out a really simple, four-week plan that basically is geared to […]

On Bloomberg TV After Last Week’s Apple Event

Saturday, November 2nd, 2013

After last week’s Apple Event in San Francisco I had a chance to chat with Bloomberg’s Jon Erlichman on Pimm Fox’s show. It was a fun chat, despite the treachery of the cars racing by just inches behind us! The thing that most impressed me at the event was the iPad Air. We got to […]

SXSW Debrief 2011

Wednesday, March 23rd, 2011

As I have in years past, last week I attended SXSW down in Austin, Texas, catching the last portion of the film festival, as well as all of Interactive and Music. I wrote some of this up for us over at The Mac Observer and iObserver, and also included mentions in our Mac Geek Gab […]

The iPad is The Future Of Laptops

You can read it over at TMO (where there are some *great* comments) and/or watch it in my interview with Or, you know, right here below.

iPhone OS Multitasking Idea

Monday, February 1st, 2010

I had what I consider to be quite a fantastic idea for solving a lot of the complaints about the iPhone OS’s lack of multitasking support for third-party apps. I wrote about it over at TMO, so you can see it there. Enjoy!

My Lightning Lessons

Monday, January 25th, 2010

Just posted an article about my lightning experiences and lessons learned over at TMO that *should* have gone live a year ago, but got lost in the system. Thankfully a conversation sparked up this weekend on the Macworld Forums about Chris Breen’s related power experiences, and it sent me to seek out this old article […]

Skype for iPhone thoughts

Tuesday, March 31st, 2009

Skype for the iPhone came out last night, and I spent a little time with it, and wrote a lot about it. Don’t worry, I’ve been using Skype regularly for years, so most of what I wrote is actually real stuff I didn’t make up! 🙂 The article’s posted over at iPodObserver today, and even […]

First trip with the iPhone

Monday, August 18th, 2008

My recent trip to New Media Expo was my first travel experience since I moved from the Treo 650 to the new iPhone 3G. Overall, I think it the move was positive. Web browsing was, as expected, far and beyond a better experience than I’ve had previously. No surprise here. Those of you who followed […]

My Backup Strategy

Tuesday, July 22nd, 2008

On a few recent Mac Geek Gab episodes I’ve mentioned my current backup strategy and more than a few listeners have asked me to document this somewhere. I figured this blog was as good a place as any. Starting in 1995 and up until February when Apple’s Time Capsule came out, I was a died-in-the-wool […]

Mobile blogging

Tuesday, July 22nd, 2008

For years I’ve complained that the only time I think to blog something is when I’m away from my computer and, hence, nothing gets blogged. My blog frequency certainly supports that. Now that WordPress for the iPhone is out, perhaps that will change and you’ll hear more from me here, as well. Time will tell.
