6 Top Features in Mac OS X Yosemite

I will admit, I love my Apple products...from my first iPod many years ago to the iMac I got this last September, I've really become a big fan. They just work! Now, from the latest World Wide Developers Conference (WWDC), comes the preview of the upcoming Mac OS X "Yosemite" operating system, and some of the features being added almost made me stand up and cheer.

Are You The Next Steven Spielberg?

We saw it over and over again during the holidays. A teenage boy at his family's Christmas gathering, who apparently only cares about looking at his iPhone.

It was a very moving

Siri-ous Mistake

I need to make a public correction and an apology.

Earlier this week, I posted a blog titled, "Meet The 'Real' Siri." In it, I referenced a video originally posted on the tech blog theverge.com. The title of the video is, "How Siri Found Its Voice."

How Did Your iOS 7 Update Go?

Like so many other users of Apple products, I anxiously awaited the release of the newest operating system update for the iPhones/iPads/iPods, iOS7. I had seen a couple of Facebook posts of articles--both pro and con--regarding whether or not one should download and install the update right away, or wait. I don't like waiting, so I went for it as soon as it was available (just after 1:00pm yesterday). How did it go for me?
