I’ll try to phrase this commentary carefully because, as usual, Apple must play by a different set of rules. If a blogger perceives the rules may no longer apply, the company must be in really deep trouble. Not just ordinary trouble, but deep trouble. Really deep trouble....

To realize how much influence the James Bond film franchise has had, consider that the first film of the theatrical series was released in 1962. But it wasn’t the first time there was a visual interpretation of one of Ian Fleming’s best selling novels. A version of Casino...

So Siri is bad. Terrible, a huge fail. Apple is late to the party, and the digital assistants from Amazon, Google and Microsoft are the only ones to be taken seriously. You get the picture. Yes, it’s typical Apple fear mongering, the sort of thing where nothing the company...

Once a portion of the media seizes on a narrative, however wrongheaded, it’s often difficult or impossible to change things. Take the perception that Tim Cook is little more than a supply chain geek with a shaky grasp of the public narrative about Apple. For many, the late...

The first developer beta for macOS High Sierra dropped on June 5th, after the WWDC keynote address in which four operating systems were demonstrated, plus new Macs and new iPads. As Apple events go, it was filled with stuff, lots of stuff, and should thus be regarded as a...

So have we at all reached the point with Apple where they have a harder time surprising us? I suppose it seems so with all of the speculation about future product announcements. Well, sometimes Apple feeds a few tidbits, I suspect, possibly on background to selected...

Despite all the competition for your viewing dollars, to most people I’m sure the perfect movie watching experience occurs in a movie theater, a shared experience. These days, theater owners are pulling out all the stops to get you to come on over and watch the latest...

You may not believe this, but IDC long ago predicted that Windows Phone would take over the number two spot in the smartphone market. I caught one of those predictions in a story dating back to June of 2011. At the time, iOS had an 18.2% share of the market, and Android had...

Here we go again. Yet another story about an alleged iPhone 8 feature that is just bound to be dangerous. The disconnect is so obvious that you wonder how some so-called responsible publications manage to publish such wacky stories and imagine they make sense. So let’s put th...

Let’s put it this way: If someone from a polling company called you up and asked about your buying plans for the next month, or the next year, how would you respond? If you did provide some answers, what sort of responses would you give, and just how serious would you take...

Let me just go through all this again, because it seems that some of the chronic Apple critics have nothing better to do than repeat the same old nonsense no matter how many times you correct them. One method to denigrate Apple is to make a survey that not only puts them in...

Year after year, Apple customers may have felt that the Apple TV set-top box had a future. Once it hit the second generation, as a tiny device capable of receiving streaming video, the possibilities seemed rich. While the second generation was limited to 720p HD, it was...

With the news that Apple plans to spent a cool $1 billion to finance TV projects, the media is pretending that there is going to be some sort of “battle royal” among the various services to get your cord-cutting dollars. While that, in part, may be true, the facts are far...

What Apple plans to do to conquer the living room remains a question mark. We know the company is interested. Tim Cook has said so. But the rumors that there might be an Apple branded TV set never came to fruition. Even though there were reports about possible prototypes in...

Funny how things have changed. It wasn’t so long ago that the Apple Watch (I know that Apple doesn’t want us to use “the,” but I don’t care) was regarded as an underachiever. Or perhaps even a failure, even though the sales figures were pretty decent for an all-new gadget....

Dear Reader, I will be 72 on September 9th. I have worked long and hard for over 50 years to earn my keep. The Night Owl is suffering from a severe financial crisis. If anything I’ve ever done has ever made a positive difference to you, please help me survive and get past...

In yesterday’s column, I cited stats that indicated that the iPhone 7 was surprisingly successful in the June quarter, with sales slightly above last year, and ahead of every other smartphone on the planet. These are the kinds of numbers that continue to cement Apple’s...
