Nemo Memo – Syncing’s not always a cinch

On October 20, 2010, in Apple, Features, iPhone, Macbook, Nemo Memo, by John Nemerovski

Guest report from occasional contributor Susan

A month or so ago, I noticed that my iPhone 3G was not updating when I made changes to either my Address Book or iCal on my one year old MacBook, so I made an appointment at my local Tucson Apple Store. Things have changed at the perpetually busy Genius Bar; iPhone techs now meet their clients at the front of the store, which is always very crowded with customers. These days, there are often more people in the Apple Store than in the rest of the stores combined in the upscale shopping plaza where Apple is located. Sad for those others, but I wish Apple would move into larger premises.

Published in 2004, the oddly-titled ‘PowerBook Fan Book’ isn’t about the fans inside PowerBooks, or about the people who rave about PowerBooks in the way that others are keen on Manchester United. The ‘PowerBook Fan Book’ is actually an alternative to the user guide that came with Apple’s PowerBook series of computers, and tells the reader about these machines, what they need to work well, and how to get the most from them.

Apple sold their last PowerBook in 2006, and since then the high-end of their portable Mac line has been filled with the MacBook Pro series of computers. But a review of the ‘PowerBook Fan Book’ isn’t completely pointless. Some of what’s included in this book holds as true for the MacBook Pro series as it did for the PowerBooks, but really, the value of this book nowadays is that it’s simply a neat collectable.

iPhone data recovery service

DriveSavers is possibly the best-known name in the personal computer data recovery business. The firm recently announced that it now provides data recovery for damaged Apple iPhones.

Being both a happy iPhone owner, and a curious reviewer, I wanted to learn more. Why would anyone need data recovery, when the iPhone syncs each time you dock it with your Mac?

Why The Keynote Was Good News

On July 19, 2002, in Opinion, by Mark A Collins

The Macworld Keynote given by Steve Jobs disappointed many loyal Mac fans. Part of it was due to the fact that the rumor sites had spilled virtual *all* the beans. Part of it was sticker shock from the newly rebranded Mac service. And part of it was because it really wasn’t that exciting. But imagine you’re not a Macintosh user for a moment. Imagine that instead, you are an investor who either doesn’t own a Mac, or doesn’t even use a computer if you can help it. Imagine you have no feelings for Apple and their products outside of what it means as far as potential growth in the stock.
