The launch of the first Mac mini in 2005 came in response to the question of whether Apple would ever build a cheap Macintosh computer. During a quarterly conference call with financial analysts the previous October, Apple executives, asked that question, said that Apple...

Over the years, there has been a perception that Tim Cook is not quite the master of innovation Steve Jobs was and thus not suited to lead Apple. After all, it was Jobs who, after his return to Apple in late 1996,  shepherded the introduction of the iMac, the iPod, the...

By fall, many of you will have an iPhone (or perhaps an Android smartphone) that is at least three years old. That’s virtually forever in the mobile business, so you’ve just got to think about what to buy next. That doesn’t mean you should, of course. It may well be that...

Most of you know about this, but it doesn’t make the policy any easier to tolerate. So Mrs. Steinberg and I were looking for something to watch Saturday night. Most of our favorite TV shows are on their summer hiatus, and there are a handful of summer shows, from SyFy and...

For a product whose expected launch is nearly two months from now, one potential Apple gadget is getting an awful lot of publicity. Not all of it is good. In fact, quite a lot of it is quite negative for one reason or another, about it being buggy from the get-go, or...

Let’s put this all in perspective, shall we? macOS High Sierra, sometimes known as macOS 10.13, is currently in the hands of developers and public beta testers. Assuming a high participation rate for the latter, the number of users may have reached hundreds of thousands of...

The world is about to end. The populace is planning to build a small fleet of spaceships to enable specially selected people to leave the planet and look to the stars for a new home. Wait a minute! That’s a plot line used for several sci-fi films about how humans cope with...

If past is prologue, the earliest we’ll know for sure what Apple plans for the rumored iPhone 8 is early September. That’s the usual timeframe for the introduction of a new iPhone lineup, and there seems to be no reason why it should change this year. The online chatter has...

Welcome to the world of near-insanity, where a highly successful company is constantly thought of as being poised to fail. It’s the sort of journalist and tech analyst freak-out that has played itself out for years when it comes to Apple Inc. You almost wonder if there’s a...

The past few decades have been littered with failed auto companies. Over my lifetime, I remember such makes as Edsel, Studebaker, Packard, Rambler, AMC, DeLorean, Saturn, Plymouth, Pontiac and Oldsmobile. While there are no doubt used cars from each make to be had, although...

One thing is certain: When someone attempts to predict Apple’s future plans, you should be cautious about the result. Well, unless that news comes direct from Apple. Even then, there’s the expected hype factor. So we have those almost endless reports about whether the...

For a while, many Mac users felt abandoned by Apple. The critics said that, since Apple makes roughly 60% of its revenue from iPhones, other products are being given short shrift. It would seem to mean that Apple didn’t care about 40% of its business. But is that even...

In recent years, Apple has allowed customers to take a huge chance. As with members of Apple’s developer program, you can get early access to Apple’s operating systems, for better or worse. And sometimes it can be for worse. While Apple wasn’t doing public betas of what was...

When Apple debuted Touch ID on the iPhone 5s in 2013, it wasn’t the first fingerprint sensor to appear on a mobile phone. But it probably reached far more people than any predecessor or successor for that matter. As with some other technologies, such as the Siri digital...

You know, it wasn’t so many years ago that I would install developer betas of new operating systems the very first day they appeared on Apple’s site. I didn’t mind hitting the wall on an installation, or just running the apps that I used most often. But I also had a spare...

You know the story. Apple repeats it nearly every quarter when reporting Mac sales, up or down. About 50% of the people buying one are new to the platform; most are presumably Windows switchers. Now I’m not altogether sure where Apple gets its data. Perhaps people just regist...

My initial odyssey with the first public betas of iOS 11 had a predicable ending. As I reported, the early post-installation experience was very positive. Most everything worked first launch, and performance was reasonably smooth. In some ways, it appeared to be a tad...

Revolutionary technologies can have revolutionary effects on one’s lifestyle. I’m at an age where I’ve seen the impact first hand through several generations, but the biggest change has been from being a passive observer of technology to an active participant. But most any...

Just days after Apple released the second developer beta of iOS 11, it was time for the public to get involved. It’s part of Apple’s Public Beta program, where brave customers have their chance to try out beta operating systems. In the past, all the action revolved around...
