A couple of months ago the boys over at Macgasm had a piece (found here) about a new type of iPhone case that made me go hmmm. I have always been against cases, but this intrigued me for some reason. They had a color selection of Orange, my favorite, along with a super cool sticky resin exterior.

I was sold!

I had totally forgotten that I have purchased one to giveaway on the site up until it came to my house out of the blue last week. Sitting in it’s pretty simple packe, along with it’s gorgeous Orange, I am excited to be giving this away to one luck fan! Continue Reading…

Technology has become a huge part of our lives, we use it to learn, to occupy ourselves, to over indulge in media and much more.

The younger generation (I include myself in that statement even though I am 35) live and die by being connected, but they also learn by it. The way we all maintain and accept new data into our minds is different from even 6 years ago.

Replacing paper with iDevices, flip phones with iPhones, slow nasty laptops with a new Macbook Air (yes I got one last week!), it all leads to us and our technological learning curves.

Check out the infographic below to learn more about the way we live and breathe and learn via technology these days.

For most people, the default calculator for the iPhone does what you wanted to do. For me, I look at it and throw up a little bit in my mouth. Since I can’t delete it, I put it in an iOS folder called “Never”. Don’t worry, he won’t get bored since it has plenty of company in Notes, Stocks, Voice Memos, Compass and Reminders. Apps that I never use and rub me the wrong way.

I don’t understand why most calculator apps look like a real calculator. I know we complain much about Apple’s skeuomorphic design in some of the iOS apps (notes, reminders, find my friends), but calculator apps are the worst offenders. We don’t need to “feel” we are using a calculator, I just want to do some math. So spare me the glass looking screen, the calculator buttons and the fake “tape”. Continue Reading…

OK, so most people know that I am a HUGE Omnifocus user on Mac, iPhone and iPad. It has been my go to app of choice for the last year. However, what you didn’t know was that I used to date (scratch) depend on an earlier app called Things. We were in love together and I purchased all their apps (iPhone, iPad, Mac), and I was happy.

After task-management apps started switching to the cloud, Things let go of itself and got too comfortable (like wearing sweatpant around the house) and I broke up with it. I became promiscuous and tried several other solutions (Wunderlist, the Hit List, Remember The Milk, Todo, etc). I thought I was living the life, but I would come home tired, and exhausted after trying so many different apps that I would have a hard time remembering their names. Continue Reading…

Apple Stores are an amazing feat of retail awesomesauce. They keep popping up around the world while their competitors are closing up shop. Why?

Well, because Apple has the formula for success down. They don’t change much about it and continue to succeed in what they do.

So the now infamous Steve Jobs is not so crazy after his store idea was laughed at years ago huh? Now his idea is modeled after by many retailers around the world.

Take a bite of the Apple Store success below in this infographic. Continue Reading…
