On December 5, 2014, in Apple, iOS, iPhone, Opinion, Review, by David M. Acklam

You may be wondering why I am writing about an old iPhone 4S. Isn’t everyone rushing out to get a new iPhone 6 or 6 plus? You are probably asking what the heck is this Tracfone thing? This is just another one of my personal experiences that I felt was worth sharing with our MyMac reader audience.

Drunk On The Apple Kool-Aid

On November 16, 2012, in Opinion, by Mark Greentree

Love them or loath them, the community of Apple users are passionate about upgrading their hardware on a regular basis. Although, it is often beyond reason and common sense. It is a sickness that borders on obsessive compulsive behaviors.

Break a few stories and your site can be self supportive. But of course, don’t worry about your integrity. That no longer exists in the realm of the bedroom blogger.

Apple gives to Hurricane Sandy relief maybe not until it hurts, but generously. On the home front, Guy might not go to the Macworld Expo and is unable to find his Time Machine. Gaz’s Finder issues may have been solved by NOT turning off his Mac Mini. Guy’s hatred of analysts persists with every stupid they say, Samsung sells more Galaxy SIII’s than Apple sells iPhone 4S’s in a single quarter, and Foxconn may build a plant in the US…sheyeah right!

olloclip Quick Connecting Lens Solution for iPhone
(4S/4 and iPod touch 4th generation) 
Company: olloclip
Price: $69.99

I was lucky enough to receive the olloclip 3-IN-ONE PHOTO LENS for the iPhone 4, 4S or 4th generation iPod touch to review. This is a product that changes your device’s camera lens into a Fish Eye, Macro or Wide Angle capable device.

I opened the packaging and was a little distraught at first as I thought I was going to have to cut open one of those sealed plastic blister packs. I’m sure you have come across those hard to open plastic packs. Well, no, not in this instance, because it was clipped together and opened easily. That was a relief.
