Apple Store coming to downtown Naperville

Wednesday, April 15th, 2009

As I much I as I hate to see more chain stores coming to downtown Naperville, it isn’t so bad when I can have an Apple Store within walking distance of my house.  Call me a hypocrite I guess! :) For those interested, the new Apple Store is supposed to be opening in the same [...]

Can someone PLEASE buy me this? :)

Take a Screenshot on your iPhone 2.0

Thursday, July 10th, 2008

So you updated your iPhone to version 2.0 (or bought a new 3g iPhone) and want to take a screenshot of your desktop (is that what you would call it on an iPhone)? Easy. Click the Power Button (top of the phone) and the Home Button (front of the phone) at the same time. The [...]

How Mac OS X’s “Internet Sharing” Saved My Vacation

Sunday, May 18th, 2008

So I am on vacation right now and the unthinkable happened after we checked into our place: there was NO wifi available. The hotel didn’t have wifi available at all (welcome to 1990). No coffee shops or residences in the area where I could see their network. Not a thing. Luckily my dad has a [...]

The MacBreak Weekly Drinking Game

Wednesday, February 20th, 2008

Warning: This post is extremely nerdy and really “outs” my geek-ish tendencies (though, “no, I will not be writing any MacBreak Weekly FanFic”). :) I listen to a lot of podcasts. For me, they have pretty much completely replaced my listening of live radio. The radio that I do listen to is “timeshifted” through pretty [...]

AppleTV Podcasting Best Practices

Tuesday, February 19th, 2008

You know that I love my AppleTV and with the recent updates, it’s even better than ever… Not that I’m an expert on the topic of podcasting, but I got this interesting email from Apple today with some how-to’s/best practices and figured that I’d put it up here so I didn’t lose track of it [...]

Setting Twitterific (Power User) Preferences

Tuesday, February 12th, 2008

So I have been using Twitterific for a while (yes, I am a registered user) but I’ll be honest and tell you that I’ve always been somewhat annoyed with how it displays full usernames (“Mike Marusin”) rather than ScreenNames (“marusin“). Low and behold, there are a ton of “Power User Preferences” that can be done [...]

Don’t hold me to my words

Tuesday, September 25th, 2007

I caved in on my holding out with the iPhone. :) What can I say, that price drop was really smart for Apple to woo the would-be iPod Touch buyers into the iPhone (which was me a few weeks ago). So far, I haven’t really had the time I’d like to immerse myself in it, [...]

I love my AppleTV (and am not afraid to admit it)

Thursday, September 13th, 2007

If you ask anyone on the Internet (and why would you do that?) about the success of the AppleTV, the majority of people will tell you that the product is a complete and utter failure. If you happen to ask me (and why would you do THAT!?!?), I would tell you that it’s probably one [...]

Happy iPhone Day!

Friday, June 29th, 2007

Here it is upon us… The day we have all been waiting for: iPhone Day (or what was formerly known as June 29th) If you know me, I’m sure you’re assuming that I will be at the Apple Store this evening in line to pick up an iPhone at release. It’s not unusual for me [...]
