Dave Hamilton takes a moment and works through the Apple vs. Google maps iOS 6 developments, offering some perspective on where we've come from with it and where we're going. As with iOS 5 and earlier, iOS 6 still requires users to have one built-in and one third-party maps app. But will that change in the future? Dave offers his thoughts.
The Apple TV is a joy to use. It’s easy to navigate to content with just a few clicks. However, one of the test functions is infuriating and is about the lamest thing Apple has ever done.
The new MacBook Pro with Retina Display doesn’t have a security slot for a locking cable. I wondered why, and so I visited my local Apple retail store for an explanation.
I installed Mountain Lion on my MacBook Air as soon as the new OS was released. Here’s the procedure I used, with notes and observations.
Apple is terminating the MobileMe web hosting service as of June 30, 2012. That means that users who hosted their website at web.me.com will have to find a new service provider for their site. Also, because Apple has abandoned support for iWeb, a new website development tool is needed. This is Part II of that exploration and describes a new extraction tool in Sandvox 2.6 for your old website just announced by Karelia.
Many smaller developers without access to a professional public relations agency, don’t always know how to approach a blogger/reviewer. For that matter, some PR agencies are also somewhat mystified about how bloggers work. This new e-book by Erica Sadun and Steve Sande lays it all out: How to pitch your product to a publication.
It was Friday, May 16th, 1997, and I was at my 5th WWDC. Steve Jobs had returned to Apple thanks to Apple’s purchase of NeXT, but he was only an adviser to CEO Gil Amelio. In a closing keynote, Mr. Jobs took some questions, and this author, an aerospace engineer at the time, had one ready.
We now know officially that Apple will not be supporting web site hosting after June 2012. Also, the iWeb ‘09 app hasn’t seen a major update in some time, and Steve Jobs in a purported e-mail has confirmed that Apple customers will need to find another web site builder. So, like many others, John has embarked on a quest to both rehost his personal website and select a new web site development app. This is the first installment describing that journey.
This morning Microsoft and Skype made it official: the two companies approved the sale of Skype to Microsoft for $8.5 billion. And while they maintain that Skype will operate as a separate business unit, Dave Hamilton questions just how much Skype might be forced to change now that it’s under the umbrella of a company who makes a lot of its money catering to the enterprise.
