I don’t own an Apple TV, so I can’t review the massive software upgrade that Apple just released. I can, however, point you to some bloggers who have already posted reviews. Jason Chen at Gizmodo loves the reinvented Apple…


Another Apple update: Software that transforms Apple TV

Apple has finally released software that CEO Steve Jobs promised last month, software that allows Apple TV to rent movies from iTunes. The new software lets Apple TV owners rent more than a thousand movies, including more than a hundred…


Apple posts massive Leopard update

Apple has finally released a massive update to its Leopard operating system. The software patch, which takes up more than 100 MB of space, fixes more than 130 bugs. The release made my Mac faster and more stable. It also…


Starbucks to offer AT&T; Wi-Fi, dumping T-Mobile

I don’t think this is any big surprise, given how Apple and Starbucks had already announced plans to let iPhone users purchase songs via Wi-Fi at Starbucks locations (and the iPhone, of course, officially works only on AT&T;’s network at…


Update your Apple software

Apple has been releasing a bunch of software updates over the past few days. The video program QuickTime just got a security patch, while iPhoto, iWeb and a couple other programs got updates designed to improve stability and performance. These…


MacBook Air now shipping, Apple TV update delayed

The headline pretty much says it all. The Apple TV update that enables HD movie downloads should be available “within two weeks.” So there….


A Vudu box for $104 less

The price of a Vudu box, which lets you rent thousands of movies, instantly, from the comfort of your sofa, has plummeted from $399 to $295. Observers think the company cut the price to compete with a much improved…


MacBook Air a Trojan horse for iTunes?

So Engadget is running a MacBook Air through its paces, and I thought the segment on the Remote Disc feature was interesting. Remember, the MBA doesn’t include a CD or DVD drive, but the Remote Disc feature basically lets…


Macworld: Quicken overhaul

Photos: AppleInsider Another exciting product unveiled at this year’s Macworld was the new version of Quicken for Mac, which is so different from its predecessors that developer Intuit plans to rename it “Quicken Financial Life for Mac.” Anyone who…


Macworld: Better voice recognition

Though I generally prefer the Mac I use at home to the PC I use at work, I must admit that Mac forces me to forgo a lot of cool software applications. This was particularly true of voice-recognition programs. PC…


Buy the AirMail folder to store your MacBook Air

Steve Jobs generated plenty of oohs and aahs when he slipped the skinny MacBook Air out of a plain manila envelope. Well, if you already own your replica Steve Jobs jeans-and-turtleneck combo outfit, and simply must emulate the great…


I don’t hate Macs. I just didn’t like the keynote.

In the post below where I noted my underwhelmed reaction to Steve Jobs’ keynote on Tuesday, there was some speculation in the comments section that I’m a Mac hater. Well, no. Here are my Apple bonafides: I own an iPod…


Steve in 60 seconds

Curious to see the Steve Jobs speech from Macworld but hesitant to commit 90 minutes. Here are the main points, boiled down to 60 seconds. Highly recommended. From Mahalo, via TechCrunch….


Macworld keynote photo slideshow

There’s a cool photo slideshow up on dallasnews.com right now of Jobs’s keynote. I really like the above shot. While we all joke about the cult of Apple, the company really does have genuine fans who follow the company…


Shares of Blockbuster and Netflix also down after Apple keynote

It seems like Apple’s new iTunes movie rental service has spooked investors in Netflix and Blockbuster, as shares of both video rental companies fell today after the Macworld keynote. And yet — as I noted earlier — Apple’s own investors…


Apple TV should have been better

Yes, it’s a huge upgrade. Apple TV will soon offer movie rentals, photo sharing and high definition. It also operates independent of any computer. Heck, Apple even provided the upgrade free to existing customers, which was unusually generous for…


Apple stock down almost 7 percent today

Apparently I wasn’t the only one unimpressed by the keynote….


Macworld keynote a bit underwhelming

Granted, there was some cool stuff. But Time Capsule didn’t do much for me, and while some of the features in the iPhone update are neat (especially the location tracking), I think we were all secretly hoping for the unveiling…


Steve Jobs keynote leaked?

A document said to be a draft outline of the speech Steve Jobs will deliver Tuesday at Macworld is making its way around the Internet. Check here for the full text. I really hope this is just a hoax, not…


Amazon to offer more songs with no copy protection

Amazon’s music download service has added “hundreds of thousands of songs” from Warner Music Group. The influx of Warner artists ranging from Metallica to Madonna brings Amazon’s total catalog up to about 2.9 million tracks. Apple’s iTunes has about…
