UPDATE: So I upgraded to Vista today and had to reinstall some software and I noticed there was a change in the Apple Software Updater. When I brought up the program, I expect it to try and pimp Safari, Quicktime, and iTunes but to my surprise, it didn't. I thought, "Maybe Apple finally listened.I ran… Continue reading Apple’s Relentless Safari Push (UPDATED)
CNet executive editor, Molly Wood has written and interesting blog post about a user's experience with DRM on his TiVo."I got an email today from a pretty furious Comcast user, who writes: 'This morning, my kids and I decided to watch a TiVo HD recording we made last night of The Making of John Adams.… Continue reading DRM Infesting TiVo?
Lately I've been handing over my money (willingly) to Amazon.com. It is just so easy and convenient to download digital music. I didn't believe that the compact disc was a dying medium but now I see why it just might be fazed out in the next few years. Yet, there is still something romantic about… Continue reading Amazon FTW
I'm loving the DRM free music from Amazon.com and I will never purchase DRMed ANYTHING ever again. I personally got burned when the URGE store closed and I was left with a whole bunch of purchased tracks that I couldn't listen to because the songs couldn't ping the server to get permission to pay. RIDICULOUS!… Continue reading Try Before You Buy
One thing I've noticed after owning a Mac for several months is that Apple has a tendency to produce great products that capture the imaginations of people around the globe BUT they always leave people wanting more.

Everyone has probably already has all the information you want about it but I'm going to sum it all up in a neat little package.The… Continue reading MacWorld Roundup
In my previous post, I spoke of the death of DRM in 2008 but what I didn't predict was when. Today, SONY BMG announced plans to finally sell their artist's music DRM free (via Gizmodo.) This is big news for the music industry and I'm ecstatic because the customer is finally getting the rights they're… Continue reading DRM Dead
2008 has started off with a slap to the music industry's face because of the release of Radiohead's highly anticiapted album, In Rainbows. This album did not only receive massive amounts of hype because Radiohead had not releases an album in years but also because the method of distribution that they chose: instead of relinquishing… Continue reading In Rainbows
I don't know why but it really irks me when people call it the iPod Touch the iTouch. That's not what the product is called! I just read an article on Gizmodo that referred to the iPod Touch as the iTouch and it irked me enough to blog about it. I'm usually pretty irked if… Continue reading It’s not called the iTouch!
Stop the presses. Hell has frozen over. I've bought a Mac.The day that no one ever saw coming has arrived. Most people who know me know that I have a personal vendetta against Apple because of things like locking down their OS and the smugness of their customers. I'm pretty shocked myself that I bought… Continue reading Drinkin’ the Kool-Aid
OS 10.5 is offically released today and the reviews are pouring in. So far there's a unanimous "Sweet" from the tech community. Though not "revolutionary," it is certainly "evolutionary," according to the Wall Street Journal's very own, Walt Mossberg. There's going to be a "Leopard release party" at the UCI Computer store tonight where all… Continue reading Happy Leopard Release Day!
