Apple has long had a love affair with including incredible ocean and wave imagery into their product shots. They’ve been doing it for years, with some stunning wave and surf photography featured prominently on the screens of Macs, whether it’s from the old PowerBook days, to even right now on Apple.com with the iMac, Retina MacBook Pro, and iPad Mini. Clearly there are some people [Read More...]
This great new Audi commercial featuring two generations of Spocks — Leonard Nimoy and Zachary Quinto — smack talking, swearing, racing and singing “The Ballad of Bilbo Baggins” is awesome for a lot of ways, but for iPad enthusiasts, the cream on top is at the very beginning, when Old Spock and New Spock play 3D Chess against each other on their iPads.
Sadly, the app itself doesn’t actually seem to exist. How have you overlooked doing a proper 3D [Read More...]
The countdown for WWDC 2013 has begun. Tickets don’t go on sale until tomorrow morning, but if you’re already wanting to get into the WWDC spirit, here are two great wallpapers for iPhone and Mac, courtesy of Christian Dalonzo.
We learned a lot about Google Glass this week. In doing so, we also learned a lot about Google.
It’s tempting to look at Google’s vast range of products and research projects and conclude that the company has more ideas than vision. (The difference is that ideas tend to be disconnected, whereas vision involves a coherent strategic direction.
Where is Google going? Does Google even know?
A closer look suggests that Google [Read More...]
If you’re one of the lucky ones to have signed up for Mailbox, Orchestra’s amazing new email client for the iPhone, you know how great it is. It allows you to re-think how you deal with email on a daily basis. Mail messages can be archived, set to remind you at a later time or day, or placed in lists you create yourself all with a swipe of your thumb or finger. Mailbox turns email into much less of a [Read More...]
Evernote has just updated Skitch for both the Mac and iOS. And what an update! The headline feature is PDF annotation (premium account required, 30-day trial for new users), a feature which could make the app useful to more than just bloggers marking up screenshots.
Skitch’s PDF support is tuned for giving feedback. Open a PDF (you can choose from any PDF already stored in your Evernote, or open from another app) and [Read More...]
As a user of Google calendar, I’ve often ignored Mac OS X’s Calendar app, formerly iCal, for the bright internet lights of the easy to use, sharable online calendar from the folks in Mountain View, California.
I forget, though, that Calendar has a ton of great features for folks who really don’t need or want to use Google’s option, or who just want to stick with Apple products. There’s a dedicated group of folks out there that use nothing but [Read More...]
Steve Wozniak is no stranger to gaming, having met Steve Jobs while working at Atari and even programmed his own version of the classic video game, Pong.
Did you know, though, that the Woz is a huge aficionado of the classic Gameboy game, Tetris. Well, he is… so much so that Nintendo Power magazine back in the 1980s refused to publish his scores anymore because he’d dominated the #1 spot for too [Read More...]
Everclip is one of the most used apps on my iPad, despite being iPhone-only. Until now, that is. Along with an update to the regular iPhone Everclip, there’s now an iPad version. No, it’s not universal and yes, it’ll cost you another $ 6, but if you’re an Everclip fan, you really won’t care.
Everclip is a clipboard-based clipper for Evernote. It runs in the background on your iPad (for up to ten [Read More...]
After more than 14 months of watching the clock in tense anticipation, today I finally downloaded Super Stickman Golf 2, the sequel to the fantastic physics puzzler/golf game Super Stickman Golf.
If you are a fan of the original, you’re likely hitting the App Store link right now. If not, read on.
Super Stickman Golf 2 offers more of the same, and then some. You still get to balance power-perfect shots by [Read More...]
