Impressed with Apple TV. I should have got one long ago.

I’ve been looking at digital media players for quite some time now. I love the idea of them, but they all seemed to be missing a feature or two. Eventually my wife made the decision for me and got me an Apple TV. And it’s amazing! The Apple TV is often referred to as a media player […]

When you run out of Dropbox space, try Copy. A great alternative.

I have Dropbox and I love it. It’s my goto for storing and syncing files to the cloud. Even though I’ve been able to rack up some additional free space on Dropbox, it’s still pretty lacking in the free space department. There are a lot of other options but Copy is quickly becoming one of […]

Missing the magic in the Magic Trackpad

I’m all for the latest Apple gadget and I’ve been eyeing up the Magic Trackpad for some time now. I finally got one earlier this year and have been testing it out for a while now. Sadly, I’m not overjoyed with it; yet. The first day was the worse. The cursor was extremely jumpy and the […]

Backblaze continues to backup my computer.

It’s been nearly three years since I signed up for Backblaze and it’s been backing up my computer ever since. I have it set to back up once a day and it currently has backed up 112,452 files at 82,287 MB. That’s over 80 Gigs! All this for less than $5 a month. Luckily I […]

Thanks for the memories Steve.

Thank you Steve Jobs for changing our world. For looking at a device and taking it to the next level. For not being afraid to be different. For being the little fish in the big pond and showing us that anything is possible. Your life may have been cut short, but you’ve left a great […]

Lion. Why you no like my computer?

It’s sad but it’s true, Lion won’t work on my iMac. It’s one of the first generation Intel iMacs and it didn’t make the cut. Ohh well. I can still put it on my work computer so at least I’ll be able to play with it. And I can still get backwards scrolling if I want […]

Life on just the iPad doesn’t work for me.

Well I made it though a week without my iMac. How did I do? Well…. not so good. I was doing fine for a few days. Granted it helped that Lily was sick and I had to sleep with her a few nights and that took away from my computer time. However I found it […]

Can I survive a week with only the iPad?

My iMac is currently in temporary storage. We were to get our carpets cleaned today, now it’s not until next Monday. So instead of moving everything back, it’s staying in storage. That means that my desk and iMac are not available to me. Ok, they could be if I really wanted. But I thought it […]

I did it. I washed my keyboard in the dishwasher.

Have you heard that you can clean a keyboard by putting it though the dishwasher? I was skeptical, but very interested, so I tried it out, and it worked! I had an old keyboard lying around that I tested the theory with. It was from a blue gumdrop iMac from way back in the day so I wasn’t […]
