Daily iPhone App: Spice Invaders

If you're tired of tower defense games, I don't blame you. Feel free to skip this post, but let me say this before you go: I wouldn't spotlight yet another tower defense game if it wasn't special. That's why Spice Invaders has made the cut. The standard tower defense tropes are in place. Build and...

Daily iPhone App: Vintage Radio

Vintage Radio is an interesting idea for an iPhone app: It's a ton of various old-time radio recordings (more than 34,000 mystery, horror, comedy, and other old 1930s and 1940s radio shows), all accessible to stream on demand. The app allows you to browse and search shows, set up and save playlist...

As a big Star Wars fan, I followed all of the news out of the Star Wars Celebration event last weekend, but this might be my favorite.

Daddy, where do Macs go when they die?

Personally, I've never thrown away a Mac. I've always had someone to give or sell it to. I suppose it's a testament to the longevity of each unit. The first Mac I owned, a Performa 6400, went to a friend of mine in Albuquerque. It had a good life: I installed a G3 upgrade card in its personality slo...

Happy Birthday, iPhone

Yes, it is hard to believe, but our pal the iPhone will be 1 year old at 6 pm EST today. The iPhone has undergone many changes over the past year: from generating all the hype and buzz to being the best way to do everything on-the-go. The original iPhone sold at 6 p.m. (in each time zone across the ...

Apple.com Back in Time

I found this version of Apple.com from April 29, 1998 quite appropriate. Go to the Internet Archive, type Apple.com, and sift through some rather funny and emotional moments. I especially like the toasted Pentium II, the $55 Million Q2 Profit in the ticker, and the Beige G3. If you dig a bit furthe...
