iPhone 5 Maps debacle may not be entirely Apple’s fault

In this post I will explain why in part I blame Google, TomTom and Yelp! Apple have a well-earned reputation for introducing things that "just work."   Unfortunately, there is no way of denying it, even for an Apple fan-boy,  this is not one of those occasions.There is no doubt that the Maps app is beautiful, and that it will surely improve, but at least today, as one writer puts it, the icing is great but there are serious issues about the cake!  Just to begin with, however, if you are wo … [Read more...]

What Makes Apple Apple?

It is sad that a true desire for excellence seems to be very rare today. We would do well to look at what we can learn from the most successful company of our era: Apple.  Here are some comparisons between the values Apple embodies, and those of  many companies today:  Be passionate Be rationalLead, don’t follow Be cautiousAim to surprise Aim to satisfyBe unreasonable Be practicalInnovate incessantly Innovate when necessarySweat the details Get it mostly rightThink lik … [Read more...]

Dispelling a myth: Apple products DO have technical glitches

Apple marketing, and Apple users like me, have a tendency to almost gloat that "it just works." The vast majority of time that claim is true, to be honest. Owning an Apple product really does mean not having to worry about viruses or spy ware, not having to reinstall the operating system to speed it up again, and not worrying about drivers or programs being incompatible. It means eagerly installing upgrades to operating systems the day they come out. It really is a joy. Before today, I had … [Read more...]

iPad vs Kindle as an e-reader device

In the video below (from Tim Challies on the Kindle vs iPad) you can see how both an Amazon Kindle and an iPad work as e-readers. What a lot of people don't immediately realise is that the iPad can actually work as a Kindle, allowing you to use Apple's swanky new device with any e-books you already own, or subsequently purchase from the Amazon store. Thus there are two bookstores on the iPad. Allow Tim to demonstrate:Watch Kindle vs iPad on Vimeo … [Read more...]

DO NOT Buy a Macbook or a Macbook Pro

I never thought I would say this, but hold on to your plastic. You really DON'T want to be buying a Mac laptop right now. Have I gone insane? Am I converting back to PC? No, don't worry, this Mac evangelist is not about to backslide into the world of WINDOZE. It's just that all the rumors about Apple soon to significantly update its range of laptops is getting closer to being true by the day.The following MacRumors article certainly would be enough on its own for me to just wait a few days … [Read more...]

Logos Mac Alpha is Here

Its not complete. Several important features do not work yet. BUT, you can now get Logos Bible Software to work on a mac! I really, really like the interface. If you own a mac, and either have a second PC or run parallels there is no no reason NOT to buy a logos package of your own as you CAN use your unlocked PC books on the new mac version. Dont uninstall Parallels yet as its still early days. If you are like me, and don't want to waste too much hard disk space you can get parallels logos … [Read more...]

Christmas Present Ideas – Bible Software

I have already told you how much I love books. Every book needs a Christian owner who will cherish it, care for it, place it lovingly on a bookshelf, and, ideally, even read it! But the truth is, with so many great books on the market today, most of us simply don't have time to read every book from cover to cover. Of course, it's good to sit with a book and just read it. But there are also times when we want to dip into books. Times when perhaps we are studying a certain passage in Scripture. … [Read more...]
