People sit in meetings with laptops in front of them and talk over the top of them. They go to dinner, place their phones on the table and pick them up at least every five minutes to see whether something vital has happened in the (ir) world.
Does the Apple Watch really make it better? Or will it finally destroy any concept we have of eye contact?
The watch can be very personal and a reflection of your lifestyle but the Apple watch is not. It’s designed to tether you to your phone, keeping you constantly updated on any and all messages throughout the many apps you may be using.
My new watch, on the other hand, keeps reminding me to go out and play! It wants to go swimming and reminds me I have a stopwatch so start using me! It’s yelling at me: Go running! Get some sun! I even have an alarm, just like your sissy little iPhone, to wake you up for your morning run. Turn that damn iPhone off and let’s have some fun!
Just over a week ago Office for Mac 2015 was released and like quite a few people in my circles I was wondering if I could start using Outlook again. One program to handle all my emails, calendar, contacts and tasks. I already have Office for Mac 2011 installed, which never included Outlook, but the suite was hardly utilized. I was really looking forward to testing out this new version of Office for Mac 2015. Did Microsoft actually catch up with the times and address the extreme bugginess of the software on a Mac?
Really impressed with the pics I got from a recent walk thru of the Apple Store in Grand Central Terminal this week. The Grand Central Apple store opened back in 2011. I have been here before but never realized how LARGE it is! I’ve read it’s the third biggest Apple Store. Apple employees state it’s the biggest in North America. At around 23,000 feet it’s pretty impressive!
This week I have finally caught up with all my holiday spending, found a little money and decided to look at upgrading my iPhone. That was supposed to be my little Christmas present to myself. So these are some of my thoughts on the many different options Apple bombards you with. Sometimes I think that Apple is working with the concept, “If you can’t convince then, confuse them”:
iPhone Rumors Ever since the first iPhone came out in the summer of 2007, every summer thereafter rumors have run rampant about what Apple will produce in its next round of updates. This year Rumors have run rampant about a bigger iPhone, cheaper iPhone, plastic iPhone, iPhone in colors, iOS 7, iWatch, and more but now I’m hearing Apple could be experiencing production delays across the board on all these new products.
