Got my iPad this morningkoolio

Sat, 03 Apr 2010 14:52:11 +0000

Got home about an hour ago with my new 16GB iPad.  The whole experience of buying it was great.  Apple truly does a great job from product design –> retail. Like all of the initial reviews have said (Pogue, Mossberg, Ihnatko, etc.), it really is a whole different ballgame after you start using one.  If […](image)

New MacBook Pro vs. Old MacBook Prokoolio

Mon, 03 Mar 2008 03:05:32 +0000

If you’re debating between getting the new MBP (i.e., the ones with multitouch and Penryn processor) or the old MBP, you’ll find AnandTech’s benchmark tests very informative. The net: Penryn’s biggest advantage is in battery life. Performance is a tad better (depending on the test) but not a lot. So, for some of you, the […](image)

Apple has released a new firmware for the iPhone (1.1.4) .  Apparently, all the release notes say are, “bug fixes.” I don’t know about you all but ever since I upgraded to 1.1.3 (released during MacWorld ’08), I’ve had Safari crash several times.  Prior to 1.1.3, Safari crashed only a handful of times in 6 […](image)
