YouTube TV – How Do You Get Your Entertainment On?

Yep, the big daddy of streaming media (YouTube) and the big daddy of online everything (Google) have taken to the interwebs to bring you the next thing in streaming entertainment. (They are the same company, btw.) I mean, if you get everything from Google it simplifies things, doesn’t it? (Unless you think Google is evil, and they just might be.)

A Highly-Biased First Look at the Apple iPhone 8 and ATT Customer Service

Okay, so I didn’t need a new phone. My iPhone 7+ is just fine. Fast enough. Battery life and functionality is just fine. But… of course, Apple’s new iPhones tempt all of us Apple fan boys. So I jumped in and pre-ordered an 8 in black with 64 gigs. That was my first mistake. My […]

Moore’s Law and Apple’s MacBook Pro Problem – 2018 MacBook Redesign

Update, Moore’s Law, April 2018. Here’s my 2012 MacBook Pro stats. I’ve got a 500 mb solid state drive (SSD). And the real miss, so far, is the processor that has not done much but nudge up the speed in the last SIX YEARS. And the touchbar is a meh design feature, and I hear […]

New MacBook Pros with Touch Bar Are Set to Break the Bank

I was/am excited by the new MacBook Pros. And while Touch Bar is a compelling innovation, it doesn’t really make the case for spending 40% more for a machine that does 5% more, performance-wise. Let’s run through the specs for a 15″ MBP that compares with mine. Here’s what I’ve got, a four-year old 15″ […]

What I Want In An Apple Watch 3.0

Okay, so it’s been no mystery that the Apple Watch 2.0 has been kind of a bust. All of us with Apple Watch 1.0s were looking forward to a big upgrade or some major difference and what we got was “waterproofing” and GPS built-in. Not such a huge win if the watch was already on […]

Apple’s Stock is Falling, But Don’t Worry

Yes, the iPhone growth has plateaued. And Apple’s stock is falling. But here’s a little note about why you shouldn’t be panicking. The iPhone growth rates were stupidly high – since the release of the iPhone it has broken all sales records The iPhone 7 is faster, but doesn’t really offer a new “must have” […]

The Almost Non-Review of the iPhone 7 Plus

Okay, I splurged and got the 7 Plus with 128 gigs of ram. Woohoo! And so far… I’m thinking “no big deal.” Yes, it’s a bit faster than my original 6. Yes, it’s bigger, but I’m still not sure I like the larger form factor. (It’s harder to text with one hand.) And yes, the […]

Goodbye Apple Watch (Hello, Apple Watch 2.0, Maybe)

It’s official. I have given my Apple Watch to my 13 yo daughter. She’ll get more pleasure out of it than me. And the overnight charging aspect doesn’t bother her at all. And the new Apple watches are about to start shipping and I’m considering buying one for the purpose of reviewing it, but frankly […]
