Apple VR

On March 29, 2014, in My Turn by Tim Robertson, by Tim Robertson

In the battle of Virtual Reality, there are now two major players: Sony and Facebook. In the last week the landscape for VR has had a major shift, moving from a potential to a reality.

Sony's  "Project Morpheus"

Sony’s “Project Morpheus”

Last week Sony announced and showcased their upcoming PS4 attached “Project Morpheus” VR system. While they are not committing to any release date or even a price point, there is no doubt in anyones mind that Sony is both serious and going to move quickly into the space.

The future, what do you mean? How can we be in the future?


For decades many of us have been in awe of the possibility of the future. Not that long ago the thought of carrying a single panel computer capable of presenting music, film, books, and games was nothing more than science fiction.

I live by the belief that if man can envisage it, people can create it.

Of course, there is the possibility of going too far, as is famously shown in Planet Of The Apes, circa 1968.

For now we can sit back and relax with a small and hopefully harmless portion of technology that seemingly has the effect of enhancing our lives.

How do you feel about a Mac made by Gateway…or Sony…or Dell? Guy asks and Gaz shakes his weary head in disbelief. As a matter of fact pretty much EVERYONE asked or that had read the article at MyMac that Guy wrote has said the same. Oh, and by the time you read this or hear this pocast, it will almost be time for unspecified iPhone news! YAY for rumors that can’t be proven but have a logical consistency!

Tim and David take a look at the NEW publication, The Daily. Is the subscription magazine on iPad finally done right, or is it more of the same?

Plus, Sony introduces the new PSP 2, or whatever it will be called, and Nintendo states that download games will be tied to devise, NOT to user accounts. Much fodder to chew on this week!

PhotoPlus Expo Report

On October 29, 2008, in Features, by Frank Limbacher

We talked to some nearby exhibitors. They confirm the preliminary estimates made by the organizers of PhotoPlus Expo that there could be as nearly as much visitors on the show as last year (27,000). Nevertheless they also reported that sales were noticeable lower. Some blamed the slowing economy, some supposed the absence of Apple (that had a booth last year) had its impact.

How Do You Get a Macintosh User to Buy a Dell?

On May 5, 2005, in Opinion, by Owen Rubin

It is no surprise to readers of my rants that I own several PCs in addition to several Macintosh computers. I use to NEVER own a PC. And if Apple wants to ensure that I own even more PCs, it will continue to act as it has these past few weeks, basically like a spoiled, rotten child! And that is EXACTLY what Apple is doing these days. As I said before, Dell has THE BEST service warranty in the business (based on my experiences to date) and damn good hardware, and while XP will never be truly a Mac, they get closer every year, and I just need a few more reasons to drop Apple all together. And Apple is sure making it easier every week to hate them.

Lets face it, Unix on the desktop is both a good and bad idea, and while Apple did an amazing job of hiding it from the user behind OS-X, the old Macintosh Computer for beginners is no more. Apple is now MORE complex to use than a PC in many ways, has its share of problems, especially around installing and removing files, and is, I believe, a very short time away from being attacked by viruses on a large scale. Not to mention VERY complex for most users to solve problems caused by the Unix system. On the flip side, Windows XP has become even more user friendly, plug and play technology now works as well on a PC as it does on a Mac, and in some cases even better because more drivers are available for Windows. And the upcoming release of Longhorn will contain even more features bringing it closer and closer to the Mac. So owning a Mac is not the great ease of use advantage is use to be, and if you ever need to fix it, not as easy either. (Not to mention the ability to add all sorts of cool things to a PC!) And lets face it, there are still way many more programs for a PC, including some cool games, than Mac could ever hope for. So what keeps us coming back to Mac? Well, I would say the coolness of the computer and the company Apple are the key factors. Apple makes cool computers. But guess what, so does Sony!

eReport – the Cell Processor

On March 13, 2005, in Opinion, by David K Every

IBM, Toshiba and Sony got together in 2001 to create an alliance for a new type of processor called the Cell Processor. This revolution could change the industry. Finally, they started giving out details, and will producing chips before the year is out. This report that details all the information I could gather about the design, and analyzing what it is likely to mean for Apple and the industry at large.

It is available from a few sites, including:

Sony Vaio wireless LAN PC Card mode

Sony Vaio wireless LAN PC Card model PCWA-C150S

Apple PowerBook G4 Titanium owners are painfully aware that AirPort reception range is woefully inadequate. The thin titanium sheathing of the case severely inhibits the built-in antenna. The newest PowerBooks, the aluminum 12″ and 17″ versions, have antennae located around the edge of the screen bezel, which is supposed to improve reception range.

But most Titanium owners are not going to sell their existing computers and buy a 12″, a 17″, or wait for the rumored 15″ aluminum version, just to get better AirPort range. What alternatives are there for better AirPort reception?
