Much of the recognition with Siri on the new iPhone 4S is its ability to schedule meetings, set timers and reminders, and come up with some pretty humorous responses to off the wall questions. What hasn’t gotten a lot of press is one of the more powerful tools Siri’s voice-cognition capabilities offers to users of the iPhone 4S. Voice-dictation of emails, notes, and documents has never been easier. I decided to see for myself how well this is implemented with a few of the more frequently used apps on my iPhone 4S.

Macspiration Quick Tip: iCloud and iWork on Your Mac

On November 4, 2011, in Macspiration, by Donny Yankellow

One of the biggest complaints and surprises about iCloud is the fact that Apple did not update its suite of iWork applications to be iCloud compatible. iWork is long overdue for an update and I, like many, thought an iCloud update was coming with a new version of the apps (Keynote, Pages, Numbers).

Two small, versatile, high-value computer accesssories:

Presenter Pro Remote with Green Laser
Kensington
$80

XtremKey
LaCie
$50 to $230, depending on capacity

In commando, stealth mode, I strolled casually into a retail store featuring computers by a well-known company from Cupertino. I unscrewed the base cap from LaCie’s XtremKey deluxe all-terrain USB flash storage drive, exposing its USB plug tip. I discretely inserted XtremKey into a rear USB port on a new iMac, and its icon mounted instantly on the computer’s Desktop.

CLOSE, BUT NO CIGAR

The pressure was unyielding and, at times, overwhelming. So many times my finger felted the firm resistance of the hard plastic button pushed up against it like a gateway drug beckoning to click and feel the rush and euphoria of an Apple purchase. The years, months, weeks, days, and hours leading up to the January 2010 reveal (well, Apple calls them Special Events), where the iPad would be ceremoniously unveiled to a clamoring throng of mostly Apple branded lemmings, were intense. I felt sure that I would order at least one of whatever Steve unapologetically offered that day as the next piece of deified fruit from upon high.

The day had finally arrived. The world was, “all a twitter” (excuse the obvious heteronym) over the promised revelation from Steve and his merry men. It seemed as though every news outlet, blogger, podcaster, and social mediadite had a take regarding the new product from Apple. To be fair, the iPhone had taken the world by storm and no one wanted to be left off the media coverage train for this new device. It promised to be a seminal moment in Apple history and we were all ready for the new Johnny (Ive) Apple Seed.

iWork ’09 – Keynote, Pages, and Numbers – Apple Training Series
Company: Peachpit Press

Price: $39.99 US $47.99 Canada

Are you using iWork? I use Keynote and Pages quite a bit and I am still getting familiar with Numbers. I find that I like them much better than the MS Office Apps. Remarkably, they don’t crash like the MS apps do.

Create a Media Browser Using Automator

On November 26, 2007, in How-To, Macintosh, by Bakari Chavanu

If you haven’t noticed yet, each of Apple’s main creative suite applications including iMovie, iDVD, Address Book, Keynote, Pages, Numbers, and now, Mail’s Stationery feature, includes a photo browser whereby you can access photos stored and managed in your iPhoto and Aperture libraries. This means that if you’re sending an email, creating a DVD slide show, editing a video movie, creating a postcard or newsletter letter layout in Pages, or putting together a spreadsheet in which you need photos or images, you can now access your images directly from the program you’re working in.

Does Microsoft matter?

On March 18, 2005, in Opinion, by Neale Monks

Many people will see the announcement of a word processor from Apple as a statement of intent to reduce the dependency of the Mac platform on Microsoft. While AppleWorks (formerly ClarisWorks) had been around for years, it has always been seen too low-end to be much competition for Microsoft Word, Excel, or PowerPoint. But with arrival of Pages, a high-end word processor and page layout program, Apple is offering many professional and academic users a viable alternative to Word. If Pages turns out to be as successful as Safari and Keynote, does the Mac Business Unit at Microsoft have something to worry about? And if Microsoft stopped producing Office for the Mac, would it really matter?

The Keynote Address, Part 2
MWSF ’03

On January 8, 2003, in Macworld Expo, by David Weeks

FIRST IN, FIRST IN

Andrew Stone of Stone Design jumps out of bed and begins coding his custom software suite in Albuquerque, New Mexico, every morning at 5:00, which is 4:00 in California. On Tuesday, January 7, early-bird Andy dashed from a nearby hotel and was first in line at the Media Only entrance for this year’s Macworld Keynote Address. At 7:30, Nemo and Weeks worked our way to the front of the modest queue, where the irrepressible Stone was conversing with our old friend, hardworking Gene Steinberg, the Mac Night Owl.

Steve Jobs’ talk was scheduled to begin at 9:00, so we had a lot of time to schmooze with Andy, Gene, Dennis Sellers and other nearby members of the Macintosh press. Representatives of Apple guarded the stairway between us and the keynote auditorium, while hundreds of VIPs found their way into the foyer for top-priority front/center seating.
