At our house, Netflix is something the kids love and know. The iPad is also that has turned into a learning tool and media consumption iDevice for the kids. While the Netflix app on the iPad is great for the wife and I, the covers on DVDs these days are not children safe by any stretch of the imagination!

Finding true kid appropriate content on any device, TV Channel or movie these days comes with lots of looking around. Well Netflix is trying to fix that! Enter Netflix “Just for Kids”. The button in the upper left corner is all we need! Continue Reading…

So I woke up this AM as I do every other morning, to that annoying strum from my iPhone at 6am. Yes 6am is the only time I can get up and not have my three little girls jumping up and down on me!

Anyway, my wife kept pushing me to turn off the alarm, and come to find out, my iPhone 4 was stuck on a activation screen. Hmmmm

I turned off the phone and fell back asleep. Continue Reading…

iPhone-5-design

7 years ago, Steve Jobs and Co. put their hope in a completely new device. The computer company designed and manufactured a mobile device that was introduced as a mobile phone, music player and internet communication device. It was an uphill battle that will have them enter a very competitive, congested and hungry industry filled with companies with deep pockets. Not to mention the constant barrage of headaches dealing with carriers. Something that Apple had never done. This device was named the iPhone.

Today, the iPhone has grown to become the world’s most important device to Apple. Not only have they succeeded in taking over the market, but they have obtained 73% of the world’s mobile operating profits (Samsung being the only other significant company making money – the others are losing money). So with so much pressure to continue outperforming the market, what does the newly released iPhone 5 bring to the market? Continue Reading…

As soon as the iPhone 5 was revealed, you heard the pundits saying that this was a mediocre update that looks exactly like the iPhone before it. They laughed it off and proceeded to mock the device throughout the internets while showing off their plastic devices with 37 inch screens and tweeting about Apple’s failed innovation.

Only in America do we call a device a disappointment when everything about it has been greatly improved. Just to put things into perspective: Continue Reading…

Are You Upgrading To The iPhone 5?

Unless you have been living under a rock, you are aware that Apple has sent out their invitations for the unveiling of their next iPhone. Most people looked at the invite and said, “cool” and went on with their lives. I didn’t! I went home and put on my discernment hat on and decided to look deep into the invitation and I think I know exactly what we will see next week.

1. iPhone 5. This is what most people are saying. However, I don’t think this is in fact the real deal. You see, this is not the iPhone 5. There have already been 5 iPhones (iPhone, iPhone 3G, iPhone 3GS, iPhone 4, iPhone 4S) and this would make it the 6th iPhone. So this doesn’t make sense to me. However, this is Apple and they don’t often make sense. Continue Reading…
