Unlike some reporters who write about things they know nothing about as if the opposite were true, I freely admit that I never never touched an iPhone X. I have read a number of articles on the product from people whom I trust, so I think I have a reasonable handle on what...

So let’s look at what’s going on. Apple claims that demand for the iPhone X, due to ship on Friday, November 3rd, as “off the charts.” But that is typical corporate speak from Apple. True, stocks ran out for preorders within minutes, but just how many units did Apple ...

When I wrote about recent Apple partnerships with businesses, I only looked at part of the equation. There’s a lot more to report, but I’ll get to that shortly. Now the closest look I had at the business case for the Mac was a company I worked at during the...

As we get closer and closer to the on-sale date for the iPhone X, the claims and counterclaims about whether you’ll actually be able to take one home from an Apple Store in a timely fashion, like right away, are becoming more confusing than ever. Add to that, recent...

It’s not surprising that Vizio has opted to release what they call the “Home Theater Display” instead of a regular TV set. Since most people don’t receive stations via a TV antenna, why include a tuner? Most people rely on cable or satellite. But with pay TV prices rising eve...

It’s strange. Really strange. Apple sits at the top of the tech industry with a market cap ahead of all other companies. Over one billion of its products have been activated, and it’s hard not to find a person using an iPhone, iPad, or even a Mac. All right, the Apple Watch...

Special Feature For quite some time now, we have been witnessing the agony of Adobe’s multimedia browser plugin, Flash Player. While the platform has for a long time refused to go in peace, its end is finally in sight: Adobe has recently announced that it will “end-of-life”...

When Apple made a surprising deal, in 2014, to work with IBM to deliver mobile apps for the enterprise, it was certainly a sea change from the original dynamic between these companies. Back in the mid-1980s, IBM built PCs running Microsoft’s MS-DOS text-based operating...

Special Feature There’s no question about it, online gaming sites are big business these days. The industry’s advanced light years from its earliest days in the late 1990s and competition is fiercer than ever. Some of the big players have tried to counter this with a...

Apple’s cheapest Mac arrived in 2005, only weeks after Apple claimed, during a quarterly conference call with financial analysts, that it would never produce a cheap Mac. Well, they actually labeled cheap PCs as “junk,” but the Mac mini was definitely not junk, even though...

Sometimes rumors just get so far away from the truth that the inevitable come down makes you wonder how they all got started in the first place. From the earliest days of stories about the iPhone X — when it was known as the iPhone 8 — there were reports that there would ...

You can bet that, when reviewing smartphones, Consumer Reports magazine appears to have a blind spot towards Samsung; maybe a few blind spots. How so? Well, I’ll get to that shortly. Now on the surface, CR ought to be the perfect review source. Unlike most other...

I don’t know why I have to repeat the obvious, but far too many tech commentators just don’t have a clue. So here we go again. As most of you know, the iPhone X will not ship until November 3rd. Orders will be taken beginning on the previous week. What’s more, there have...

It does appear that the media is sometimes just aching to find bad news about Apple, even if it’s indirect evidence. It represents the ongoing viewpoint that years of success has all been a fluke. It was a stroke of luck, and if the fates had behaved properly, Apple would...

Raw sets of statistics can often be interpreted in many ways. Taking them out of context can also put those numbers in a very different perspective. So you can point to the recent industry analysis that indicates that Mac sales decreased in the September quarter and say some ...

Long-time Mac users understand that Apple has had a complicated relationship with some of its partners, most particularly Microsoft. Even though Microsoft has produced products for the Mac, the company remains Apple’s biggest rival in the personal computing space. At one...

Amid published reports that Apple is eyeing original TV programming, to compete with the likes of Amazon, Hulu and Netflix, it appears they may be close to inking a deal with a major Hollywood player. Before I read about the show that was being planned, I got to thinking...

This is a curious situation. Time after time, Apple is attacked for being late to add a feature to one of its products. Over that time, feature after feature will be listed as something Apple must have to avoid total ruin. Or something. Take the arrival of LTE service from a ...

As long-time readers know, I got heavily involved in the online world beginning in October of 1989, when I received a sign-up floppy from America Online. Up till then, I tapped into a CompuServe membership at the office, but it was expensive, costing over $10 per hour during ...

A computer’s file system may not seem to be a terribly interesting topic of discussion, but it becomes interesting when there’s the potential for things to go bump. So along with the release of the first developer beta of macOS Sierra in June of 2016, Apple included a...
