Here I Come to Save the Day!

July 27, 2006 1:06 PM

Apple is adding a super little gadget to its line of products. (I realize I could go far with puns given the name of this product, but I won't since it will cause too many eye rolls)

New to the family of, well, mice, Apple introduced the wireless "Mighty Mouse" (now you get the subject line, don't you?), the latest installment to its multi-button mouse, except this one has cut the cord for added flexibility and usability.

Said David Moody, Apple's VP of Worldwide Mac Product Marketing: "“A Bluetooth-enabled Mac desktop with an Apple Wireless Keyboard and Mighty Mouse is the ideal cable-free setup at home or in the office, and the wireless Mighty Mouse is the perfect travel companion for the MacBook user on the go.”

Dear AOL.....

April 13, 2006 5:24 PM

Received some interesting "breaking news" in my inbox just now. The notice I received reports that AOL is censoring emails linking to and mentioning, the coalition against the pay-to-send proposal which will make it harder for would-be "spammers" to send email.

Read this:

AOL is blocking delivery to AOL customers of all emails that include a link to  Today, after this was discovered, over 150 people who signed a petition to AOL tried sending messages to their AOL-using friends, and received a bounceback message informing them that their email "failed permanently."

Dot Mac/iWeb

March 31, 2006 3:55 PM

It's been a while since I last made a Mac post, so while I'm here, let's see what's up in my Mac corner of the world.

I recently purchased dot mac accounts for myself and my fiance (he uses a PC, but I don't make fun of him too much for it) since he wants to work on a simple, personal Web site and I just wanted it because, well, I own a G4 and therefore I should have a dot mac account for that reason alone.

I haven't really had the time to play around with some of the advanced features one receives when putting some cash out for that .mac extension (I know, I paid for it and I've been lax in using it....way to go!) but I just saw some really cool things I could be doing if I happen to, you know, actually hop online and have some fun.

iWeb, a program in the new iLife suite is a simple, easy to use Web publishing tool that comes complete with blogging templates and other really nifty tools.

Apple iChat AV/iSight Issues

March 10, 2006 12:06 PM

You might recall that I recently purchased an Apple iSight camera -- that nifty tube-looking gadget that connects with Apple computers running on Mac OS X 10.3 or later -- to use with iChat AV. The plug-and-play contraption has worked pretty seamlessly up until this week when, in an effort to connect with my brother out in Los Angeles (also running on iChat AV with the Apple iSight), I came across some issues.

I was a bit surprised, as I had successfully implemented a Web chat with a friend in MA (which, by the way, is very cool -- I hadn't seen this friend in a long time and it was nice to see his smiling face on my new PowerBook G4). When trying to initiate a Web chat with my brother, neither of us could accept nor start a conference.

Odd News for the Mac Fan

March 6, 2006 1:52 PM

You're a fan of him because he pioneered the Mac revolution. You love your iMac/PowerBook/G5/G4/iPod. And what the hey....Steve Jobs is a cool guy, no?

For every fan, there is always something. Oh admit it -- you knew how to be a Madonna-be in the early 80's and you certainly knew how to rock that hair, a la Flock of Seagulls.

That's What I Call Advertising

February 28, 2006 9:33 AM

I think I can finally put a check next to "weirdest advertisements known to date."

While we're familiar with billboards, television commercials, print ads -- even ads on vehicles, no medium of advertising has ever caught my attention quite like this one. recently bought the rights to a man's head which shall be tattooed with their logo as of today, February 28, 2006.

Believe it or not, this was all made possible thanks to an eBay auction.

No Decision for BlackBerry Case

February 24, 2006 3:52 PM

We've all been wondering what's been going to happen with the RIM/NTP case. Rich Tehrani even came up with 8 things to do in the event there is a BlackBerry outage.

Perhaps we can all come up with a few more ideas, as we have a little more time before anything drastic will happen.

According to this AP story, the judge has ended the hearing with no decision made.

Time to inhale once more and wait.....

eCard Sites Fail on Valetines Day

February 15, 2006 3:46 PM | 1 Comment

The same problem happened last year. crashed several times, leaving lovers stranded without their last minute eGreeting to make up for the lack of flowers (or candy, or jewelry....)

According to this article, American Greetings and Blue Mountain were also experiencing technical difficulties due to the overwhelming demand for eCards.

My advice?

Apple iSight

February 8, 2006 9:14 AM

My big brother and co-Mac user is moving to California in less than a week. We're pretty close as far as siblings go, so in an effort to keep the distance not-so-distant, I took a trip to the Apple store last night and purchased two iSight cameras.

iSight works soley with iChat AV (the equivalent of AIM for Mac) and since I just recently purchased a brand new PowerBook G4 complete with the latest iChat, I thought, why not try these out? I'm all for utilizing the latest technology so I can stay in touch with my family despite the miles that are between us.

Reading about the iSight has me very excited to get this thing up and running.

WiFi Tax? Don't Think So.

February 7, 2006 1:41 PM | 1 Comment

A blog on another blog ---

Here, WetMachine gives a little insight to the WiFi tax rumors that have been looming the wireless space.

There will be no WiFi tax.

The gist of it here, folks is that you have to understand all the jargon to get what these proposals are really saying. I, myself am no legal/proposal expert, so chances are I would have gotten my little hands on it and would have most likely misinterpreted myself.

My favorite line?

"This is why people are having such a hard time figuring out how it would be collected, since IT WOULDN'T BE COLLECTED."

Thank you, WetMachine for the clarification!

Rich Tehrani sent me a WiMAX press release eariler today, so I thought I would share the news. Sesquans announced the "world's first" WiMAX Forum certified base station and subscriber station reference designs. Sequans is the first silicon provider to offer a complete end-to-end certified chipset solution.

Suing Apple For Hearing Loss

February 3, 2006 1:03 PM

Fellow Channels Editor, Mae Kowalke sent me an interesting AP feature regarding the iPod headphones...

According to the story, a Louisiana man is suing Apple, claiming that the player can cause hearing loss.

A few things sort of made me chuckle when I read this interesting piece. First of all, John Kiel Patterson (the one who is suing Apple) "does not know if the device has damaged his hearing, said his attorney, Steve W. Berman, of Seattle.

Microsoft Brings iPod Competition?

That's right. My Web browsing caused me to stumble on some interesting news. The news floating around Rumorville is that Microsoft might release their competition to the iPod. What? Where? When?

More Steroids

October 19, 2005 3:03 PM

No. Once again, this is not a drug post, but yet another reference to 'WiFi on Steroids'.

Somehow, I feel this is not new news - WiMAX is growing quickly. If you've scanned the WiMAX news, you'd be hard pressed for an argument otherwise. But I'm no analyst.

More iPods

October 13, 2005 4:52 PM | 1 Comment

Apple is really pushing it with the iPods, what with new models being introduced quicker than butter rolling off a hot biscuit. First nano, now video?

This iPod lover is a bit late in the game getting a blog entry up about it, but I was at Columbia Presbyterian in Manhattan all day yesterday, so in the confines of the waiting room, I missed the news. It wasn't until last night while driving home and listening to the AM radio did I find out about the new video iPod.
