Windows 10, while still the most-used desktop operating system, gets plenty of flack. And it absolutely deserves it. Here’s our abridged list of things in Windows 10 that are as bad as stepping on a Lego. 1. Forced Auto Updates Perhaps the most obvious gripe with Windows 10 is its auto-update (and auto-reboot) process. No […]
It seems that Microsoft is burying the hatchet with Apple. Well, that’s the advertising campaign anyway. Microsoft’s “Microsoft spreads the spirit of the reason on 5th Ave” advertisement is just under two minutes of peace, love and people wearing Microsoft t-shirts singing at the Apple Store on 5th Avenue. While this ad is obviously designed […]
It sure was big news when former Microsoft CEO (and employee number 30) Steve Ballmer bought the LA Clippers. Prior to him, the Dallas Mavericks’s owner, Mark Cuban, was probably the only “techie” owner in the league. (I could be wrong, though.) Source Now, in a probably not-so-surprising move, the new owner of the LA […]
There was a time that booting into Windows on a Mac seemed crazy, which is one of the reasons virtual machine software like VMware and Parallels became so popular. Once Apple made the jump to Intel-based processors the ability to boot directly into Windows became much easier. Every Intel-based Mac today comes pre-loaded with a […]
Just how rich is Apple? Well, it depends on what measure you are looking at. Last year, Apple’s revenue was $170.910 billion, with its total assets amounting to $207 billion. No wonder they have all the money to deal with those lawsuits, huh? But where does all that money come from? To save you all the […]
Apple has many competitors and rivals – among them Samsung, Google, and Microsoft – but one of its biggest “rivals” is not even a company but the practice of jailbreaking. Even though Apple’s engineers are working tirelessly to plug all vulnerabilities that developers can use to jailbreak its devices, it has been largely unsuccessful, only […]
Reading between the lines of the big headlines from CES, there are five lessons and trends where the tech industry is tipping its hand regarding Apple. Even though Apple wasn’t at CES, here’s what the trade show teaches us about the Cupertino giant.
One minute it’s officially confirmed, the next it’s formally denied. This is exactly why I hate rumors: no matter what the truth is, somebody’s lying.
If imitation is the sincerest form of flattery, Apple should be feeling mighty proud tonight. Because Microsoft just unveiled its own touchscreen “Surface” tablet computer, and everything about the device and the media event where it was announced took its cues straight from Apple and the iPad.
Is the long-awaited Microsoft Office for iPad imminent? Sure looks like it. I wonder if Apple might be planning something special for its launch…
Rumor has it that Foxconn, one of the China-based manufacturers is assembling the new iPad 3 and that it will begin shipping in roughly a month and a half. With huge demand for Apple’s iDevices around the world, it seems that only China can accomodate this massive scale and deliver iPad after iPad to the […]
The last few days have seen a flurry of activity in the form of high-profile new iOS apps from Apple’s once longtime rival, Microsoft. Xbox apps? Check. Halo app? Check. Killer notetaking app? Yep, got that too.
For some people, this may be a harbinger of doom. For others (myself included), it’s cause to throw a frickin’ parade. Pages, Keynote, and Numbers are fine for the average casual user, but for true productivity, there’s only one productivity solution, and at long last it’s coming to the iPad.
Since the Mac’s inception typography has played a monumental role at Apple. Designing the first digital typefaces for the Mac was influenced by the analog world and later sparked a war between Adobe. The progress made at Apple in developing typefaces has formed digital typography into it what it is today. The info graphic I […]
A few years back, I went to the Apple store at my nearby mall and bought a 13-inch white MacBook, and a copy of Microsoft Office 2004. It was my security blanket, helping me make the transition away from the world of Windows, and it cost me a few hundred dollars. When Office 2008 came […]
