This Apple fan boy is growing aggravated with Apple coming out with new software versions that drop features, sometimes significant features, without much, if any, warning.
The most recent example is the new iWork software. I am a huge Keynote user. Yes, I guess I’m a power user, now that I think about it.
The new software is… Continue reading
Apple‘s walled garden has its advantages and disadvantages. When you have problems, have AppleCare and use all Apple products, their support is part of that huge advantage!
I upgraded 10.8.5 to 10.9, Mavericks. Quick Look allows the user to see files in the Finder. Additionally, the user can select a file and press the spacebar to immediately preview the file… Continue reading
Apple is stooping to the very corporate shenanigans it eschewed at its inception because of the influence, not of Steve Jobs, but of Steve Wozniak‘s largess.
Its latest and greatest OS (named after who ever can remember which large cat) has “over 200 amazing new features.”
Oh give me strength!
Many of these are so minor, so insignificantly incremental they… Continue reading
Upgrading to 10.7
I upgraded my computers to OS 10.7 (Lion) after moving into the temporary apartment. Everything went smoothing on my main laptop, but my Mac Pro has given me fits. Over the course of a couple of weeks, containing 5 or 6 phone calls, lasting a minimum of 3 hours each, I’ve worked with top level Apple support… Continue reading
Well, after spending several hours yesterday trying to solve an error when my trial version of Adobe After Effects would launch, I was very frustrated. I blogged about that yesterday.
Todd, at Adobe support in the After Effects group, is social media aware. I don’t know exactly how he chooses to track all things @Adobe, maybe through Twitter, maybe through… Continue reading

My main computer has had its 1T startup disk fail. After nearly 24 hours of working on it, I at least have it running again. I’ve had to take another 1T internal drive and make it the new start up drive with OS 10.6.x. So far, I’ve had success getting all of my document files, my upgrades… Continue reading
Well, my iPhone 4 is supposed to arrive tomorrow! I can’t wait.
I downloaded iOS 4 for my existing phone and iPod Touch to get accustomed to the new operating system. So far, the thing I like the most is Folders! My application icons are all grouped in a way that makes sense to me. Instead of having an insane… Continue reading
I decided to go ahead and purchase PTGui. After upgrading to Leopard (OS 10.5), Stitcher from RealViz, which I also really like, ceased to render a final pano. I talked with their tech support and a patch is in the works, but the timeline has not yet been announced. I was advised to visit their site regularly for the announcement.… Continue reading
This guy hits the nail on the head. When my schedule is out of control (which is too much of the time), and I’m working frantically against deadlines, my computer desktop is indeed a disaster as well. Why is organization typically among the first things that always gets tossed to the wind? And even under the best of times, I… Continue reading
The movie at the top right of my blog, a morph from a picture of me in 1961 at age 4, to a picture of me in 2001 at age 44, was done with a simple free program called MorphX written by Martin Wennerberg.
Martin is so generous, he will even give his code away for you to include in… Continue reading
