More Apple iPhone 4 Aggravation

Image via CrunchBase Everyone was excited about getting the new Apple iPhone 4.  But seriously, did these people test this device much at all? First, the issue with the antenna signal decreasing surfaced right away.  My first call on the iPhone 4 fell victim to this problem when it went from a full strength signal to dropping the call with… Continue reading

Something Good about AT&T

No, really! I complain so often about AT&T that I feel compelled to say something, anything, good about them when ever I can.  Today I can. My new iPhone 4 was having connecting issues in the house, even with the MicroCell.  I called the support number the AT&T rep at the AT&T store gave me in case I had any… Continue reading

I’m a Proud New Father…

of an iPhone 4! It arrived at 9:30am at the front door via the stork (FedEx guy). I unboxed it ceremoniously. It is beautiful, and smart — just like it’s father (me, course)! I turned it on.

Cool Airport Design

My friend Mark, who travels as much as I do, was recently in the Jacksonville, Florida Airport and shot these photos with his iPhone.  This is very clever and creative design! If we saw the guy’s head through the far windows up in the ceiling, I would have foamed at the mouth! Tim Likes!… Continue reading

Conspicuous by Its Absence

Something else just dawned on me about today’s announced iPad: all that went unannounced. In fact, I’m concerned. Where is iLife ’10? One of the presenters mentioned that iLife had been rewritten from the ground up. OMG! The last time Apple‘s software team re-wrote something from the ground up, they gutted it: iMovie! What features will we lose? Will desktop… Continue reading

My Take on the iPad

You know, I personally think Apple will have a devilishly difficult time beating what they accomplished with the iPhone.  It was transcendent, transformative technology that turned the mobile industry on its head–just as the iPod transformed… Continue reading
