I suppose I’ll have to fill you in on snow leopard, the iphone, mac’s, and apple when i know more! Thanks, good to be back.
Here’s what I have so far…
SAN FRANCISCO -
Apple Inc. is dropping the retail price of the least expensive iPhone to $99 from $199 and introducing new models.
Apple executives said Monday at an annual conference for software developers that the newer iPhones will include some sought-after features such as a video camera, a compass and an auto-focus function on photos. A 16-gigabyte version will cost $199 and a 32-gigabyte model will be $299. They go on sale June 19.
Apple also cut prices on MacBook Pro laptops.
Despite anticipation that he might make a cameo, Apple CEO Steve Jobs did not take the stage at the event.

iUse his hardware, follow his company, his phone… all his. And he is here to stay. iT’s too bad he isn’t doing the macworld 2009 opener, but after dual core, iphone, multitouch, emulation, 64 bit architecture, unix certified os, and some of the coolest presentations known in the tech world… he doesn’t have to. iCould tell he was a bit under the weather last year, and he made a few mistakes, perhaps due to stress, his condition or what have you. all is good though – we love the guy and iAm glad he is alright.

“Which is better… this or that?” It is human nature to compare things, routes to take, fruits at the supermarket, even apples and oranges. However, in software sometimes things do some much of the same thing, it is is difficult to come to a conclusion without a “hands on” experience that let’s you taste the full flavor of a product or service. Thankfully, when you have a resource that you can trust, coming to a decision makes this easier. That is why my hat is off to Web Worker Daily and the GigaOm Network for posting such a comparison on their blog here.

iAdmire the Apple design team. Simple is better… but is their marketing really that simple? Check out this video for a tutorial on how to make an ipod ad.

Mozilla on Tuesday released Firefox 3, a major update to its popular open source Web browser that’s being billed as ‘two to three times faster’ than its predecessor.
Available immediately as a free download, the browser comes in approximately 50 languages and culminates a three-year effort on the part of thousands of developers, security experts, and testers from around the world.
“We’re really proud of Firefox 3 and it just shows what a committed, energized global community can do when they work together,” said Mozilla chief executive John Lilly. (Apple Insider)

Jargon! Gotta love it. Apple inc’s WorldWide Developers Conference Held at the Moscone Center in San Fransisco, Califonia is being held this week, starting today with a keynote address from Apple founder, and CEO, Steven P. Jobs. Rumoured additions to the company are…
- A new 3g & perhaps GPS enable thinner/thicker iPhone with a video conference capability
- .mac could be re-named “mobileme” with more additons and a lower price tag (free i hope!)
- An update on OS X.6 operating sysyem, some calling it “snow leopard” it is allegedly simply going to address security and stability – no the this cat’s leap isn’t expected to be as big from 10.4 to 10.5 with added over 200 new upgrades including UNIX certification a dna 64-bit operating coating.
Any other ideas? Can’t wait!
*NOTE: THe WWDC is unlike MacWorld that it is closed to developers, and sold out for the first time this year. Check Apple.com for the full keynote and powerpoint address later today. Best!

I glanced down and spotted something on the ground. As I knelt down to pick it up I saw it was a tattered white envelope bearing the words, “7 Confessions of an Apple Mac Specialist.” Its contents, inside…

Apple, Inc updated their iMac line today. The processor speed, graphics, etc. Big whoop. iReally thoght there was going to be some sort of multi-touch didn’t you?
Also, My iMac broke yesterday. That’s right. In fact it broke DURING a Safari upgrade, convenient wouldn’t you say? The people at the Apple store seemed to think so as iHad to pay them for the power supply issue which might not even be the root of the problem, the power supply is $80.00 to replace and $80.00 to open up, throw in some taxes and I’m paying $170.00+ to maybe/perhaps/if-i’m-lucky they’ll fix it. The issue could also be the logic board, which would cost $500-700 to fix, so screw that. i’ll likely need a new mac.
But will iNeed a new iMac? It is just a little too expensive isn’t it. The fact that it doesn’t come with at least two gigs of RAM, multi-touch, and a glossy screen that may have 20 times less resolution than the 24″ imac, are major downers for me. “iWant too, iJust don’t think iCan.”
Should iBuy a new iMac? Maybe, but for reasons listed above – iDon’t think so.
Should iBuy the a newish mac pro? YES! iJust can’t afford it right now. (but someday!)
Should iBuy the mac mini? Likely – but that integrated graphic card and low max ram isn’t exactly a closing argument.
So what mac should iBuy and why? What do you have

Jim Cramer believes that Apple is so influential on the youth that it renders its competition irrelevant. For what its worth, i don’t think that Jim Cramer is really relevant and he missed the boat by months/years on the mac thing. An interesting point of this video is that he makes a distinction of what macs are to kids these days and what rickety old tower units are to kids, virusy typewriters that parents use and the kids have no desire to learn. Watch…
