Recently, the iTunes app on our family server got out of whack and cast me into an infinite loop, requesting endless authentication before my iDevices could sync. It was turned out to be an interesting problem that not even Apple tech support could solve.
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.
Antennagate showed that Apple can no longer have its own way with all customers. The broader product offerings, like the iPad and the iPhone, mean than scrutiny and criticism come from a wider circle of interested parties.That will change the company.
