Tom Hanks’ Typewriter App Shoots To The Top Of The App Store

When I was in junior high school in the early-1970's (yes, I'm not a "Spring chicken" anymore), I learned to type in a summer school class, on a manual typewriter. At about that same time, my Mom bought an electric typewriter, and for the next 15 years or so, I used that machine to type out everything from homework reports in high school to song lyrics for bands I played in over the years. Sometime in the early-90's, it finally died, and I moved on to computers with word processors. I'm sure there are many people reading this who have never experienced the feeling of pushing down on a character key and hearing the "clack" as the letter hammer snapped into contact with the paper, transferring--character by character--your thoughts to a blank sheet of paper.

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. The TV ad--titled, "Misunderstood," has a very touching surprise ending. It turns out that the young man was recording video of the various activities surrounding the family's celebration, and surprises them on Christmas morning by turning on the TV right in the middle of them opening their gifts, to present the family with a video "gift" of his own. It was a very moving

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?
