Marrying Tech and Art

In a funny way, the Mac played the same role for me that “Catcher in the Rye” or “Easy Rider” played for earlier generations: Experiencing it expanded my consciousness in ways that took me years to fully understand. Almost all my engagements with the technology world since then—the books I’ve written and the websites I’ve […]

iPad Coverage Oups

Some articles concerning the iPad that I’d thrown in a text file in the hopes of writing something about but completely forgot. So as much for my own archive as to show you, here they are: As an industry, we need to understand that not wanting root access doesn’t make you stupid. It simply means […]

Here on Gilligan’s Isle

I’m not saying you want an iPad or need one (or any of the upcoming tablets) — I don’t get commission. I’m just saying, what’s the big deal? It’s a computer and television and radio and newspaper and book and magazine and game console and Internet the size of a piece of paper and the […]

This is how Apple rolls

They take something small, simple, and painstakingly well considered. They ruthlessly cut features to derive the absolute minimum core product they can start with. They polish those features to a shiny intensity. At an anticipated media event, Apple reveals this core product as its Next Big Thing, and explains—no, wait, it simply shows—how painstakingly thoughtful […]

Google Gunning for Everyone

Great comment from Tom Coates on Tim Oreilly’s Buzz about Google vs Apple. Honestly, I don’t think I agree here. Let’s have a look at Google’s recent actions – they’ve created a mobile phone operating system, taking on all the incumbents, which they’ve released for free. They’ve released their own phone, again taking on the […]

So, the iPad

Unless you’ve been living under a rock, you already know that Apple has come out with the iPad. Here are my reactions, some quotes and payment wonderings around the new Apple gadget. Initial reaction I don’t like the name. I’ll get used to it and it makes sense with iPod, iPod Touch, iPhone and iPad. […]

Macbook Touch

This post by Neven Mrgan is pretty much exactly my thinking on the purported Apple table. Especially regarding uses in the medical field, as a control board and for gaming. (Ask Antoine I told him this weeks ago ;) )

Make Great Products

We believe that we’re on the face of the Earth to make great products, and that’s not changing. We’re constantly focusing on innovating. We believe in the simple, not the complex. We believe that we need to own and control the primary technologies behind the products we make, and participate only in markets where we […]

40% From iPhone

Apple posted some pretty amazing numbers from the iPhone. Third market, second homerun and the first market they were in, personal computers, is getting stronger and stronger.

I’m a PC Campaign

Microsoft’s new “I’m a PC” campaign (not the Seinfeld one) is out, pretty good on it’s own, bit lame considering they are just responding to what Apple did, what three years earlier?

No iPhones in Canadian Apple Stores

Apple, disgusted with Rogers Wireless for dumping egregious service plans on would-be iPhone 3G buyers, has decided that its Canadian retail stores will have no part in helping the carrier market the new handset to customers, AppleInsider has learned… As a result, Canadian Apple Retail stores won’t be selling the new 3G touchscreen phones come […]

Truly Modern Browsers Focus

After having read it it seems kind of obvious but I had to make a note here. I think it’s a brilliant insight and although many designers have embraced this—dropping IE—for their blog designs, it’s a move that hasn’t been taken up yet elsewhere: Yes, none of this stuff works in IE, and IE still […]

A possible listing of the Rogers and Fido data plans have been posted, not bad at all if it’s true.
