CRAZY STATS for Apple. There’s an amazing quote from Tim Cook about the 55 million Ipads sold so far. This 55 is something no one would have guessed. Including us. To put it in context, it took us 22 years to sell 55 million Macs. It took us about 5 years to sell 22 million iPods, and it took us about 3 years...

Traditionally, when it comes to Windows competitors there has been only one of major consequence, at that is Mac OS X. To be fair even Mac OS X’s market share is hardly a threat to Microsoft’s dominance with Windows and Linux doesn’t even register on Redmond’s concern list I’m sure. Windows 8, however, has plenty...

We are certainly living in a time that has seen many technological changes in such a short period. There was a time not long ago when computers were at speeds well under 500MHz, a cell phone and PDA were two separate devices, and even storing 5-10MB of information on the Internet was a big deal. Now we live...

Apple released the newest update to their mobile Operating System -IOS 5 yesterday. Funny, I remember being a lot more excited about it when Steve Jobs talked about it a few months ago. I upgraded my Iphone and Ipad 2 yesterday and it promptly blew awaya all my apps and data on both devices. Nice. Apart from...

At Apple’s keynote event on Tuesday, they announced that iCloud would be released on October 12. iCloud is Apple’s suite of internet apps that that syncs all of your documents and files to all of your devices. iCloud is a big rival to Windows Live especially since it integrates with Mac OS X Lion and iOS 5 as...

So this week, Jeffries analyst Peter Misek made some pretty interesting headlines. In reports related by both International Business Times and Forbes, he is claiming that Apple is planning to (using the power of its forthcoming quad-core “A6” chip) start merging iOS and OS X as soon as late next year. He claims...

Bryan Chaffin Once in a while I’ll come across a really cool article that’s tangentially related to Windows 8 or Microsoft that I think you should read and I’ll pass that along. This one is on TheMacObserver and it’s by Bryan Chaffin. It deals with his analysis of the Tablet space. He basically opines that...

So one of the mistakes people make when they read my blog or find my blog is that they assume I am a Microsoft Windows advocate. I am not and do not own any MSFT stock either. I have nothing against Microsoft or Windows, I just try and evaluate the technology based on things I have seen or experienced. Having...

OK, so here’s the breakdown. Microsoft had a flurry of events this week rolling out Windows 8 previews at 2 or 3 events. They also released a mission statement for the OS as well as a Video for people to get excited about. Keep in mind, approximately 1 Billion people use Windows. The takeway from most analysts...

So, everyone has known about cloud computing for a while. Everyone has talked about how to solve this issue for a while. Everyone knows what the basic infrastructure will look like. Riddle me this – why does Steve Jobs make it sound like he has so easily solved a problem everyone was aware of but nobody did...
