    Am I Nuts? Or Does Anybody Else Do This?

    I use my iPhone to get around. GPS is wonderful and anytime I'm on the road my iPhone is on the dashboard guiding me along. I quickly dispensed with my Garmin Nuvi as I found the iPhone to be superior for navigation. I originally used the Apple Maps app exclusively. I had no compelling reason...

    AppleTV, AppleTV 3 and Handbrake

    I have an original AppleTV in the living room and I'm considering getting a new AppleTV 3 for the bedroom. I've converted a large portion of my DVD collection for the AppleTV with Handbrake using the AppleTV preset and they work fine. I notice that there are also presets for AppleTV 2 and...

    Am I crazy, or is there a feature missing from the iPad Photos app that was there before the iOS 5 update? I seem to remember the ability to rotate photos in the Photos app on my iPad before the iOS 5 update, and now that feature seems to be missing. Did I miss something? Or, am I imagining...

    iCloud Photo Stream/MobileMe Gallery

    I'm posting this just to see if there is anyone else out there that feels the way I do about this subject. I really do like the way the new Photo Stream in iCloud works so that when I snap a photo with my iPhone or upload photos from my Nikon to my iPad that they magically appear on both...

    My wife bought a Toshiba laptop with Windows Vista this weekend and I've had a devil of a time getting it to share with my Mac Mini and vice versa. The laptop connects with the Airport express and gets access to the internet. I'm typing this post from the laptop, in fact. The Mac and the...

    OS X comfort level

    I'm back after a long absence. The last time I visited here I was running OS X beta or 10.0. Either way, I was not ready to commit to OS X at that time due to a lack of vital software that ran natively (mostly Adobe apps). What's the point of running OS X if most of the apps you use run in...
